June Recap5:14 PM
Whoaaaa. I can't believe it's the end of June already. The time's passed by so quickly...too quickly for me *sigh* But hey, I've done some pretty awesome things (and awesome things are coming) and that's more than I manage to make my lazy (antisocial) butt do some summers.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. ✪✪✪✪✪ You know, I can understand people not liking this. But even though there were cliche elements (Hi, popular Hunger Game themes) and it was kind of slow in the beginning, I loved the characters and their development and the powers and the revolutionary movement.
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. ✪✪ I didn't see what all the hype was about for this one. Which is really sad, because I totally wanted to love it...I just couldn't. The world building was great...the characters weren't (to me anyways).
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan. ✪✪✪✪✪ HOW CAN I EXPRESS MY LOVE. Okay, this series is brilliance. I am in love. At this point, I'm so far in that I'm not even sure if it's the world or plot (yes) or the fact that the characters have made me fall in love with them to the point of not return (also yes).
Top Ten Clues You're Clueless by Liz Czukas. ✪✪✪✪ This was a really fun, quick read. I loved the lists and mystery. Most of all the characters were hilarious. When you put that many personalities in one room for any length of time, you know it's going to be epic. Plus, the cover, guys. It's beautiful.
P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han. ✪✪✪ I was really disappointed by this one. After To All the Boys I've Loved Before (✪✪✪✪) being so nice, I completely expected the same but I felt like there was so much relationship-turmoil and who-do-I-love. It also ended to abruptly for me.
Um...so, yes, they're all k-dramas.
Yep. I have no excuses.
The Bookshelf Tag @PaperFury showcases Cait's beautiful books and bookcase. Cue the jealousy. ;) Her book pictures are, as always, on point.
And it was really fun reading about Sophia's adventures in her post May // The Month of Adventure. There are a lot of gorgeous pictures there too.
