Wrap Up since I’ve been MIA

Hey all! So yes, I’ve been MIA but life has been crazy! I’m finally settling into a new schedule and want to get back to the things I enjoy doing! Like blogging. So let’s wrap up the books I have read since my last wrap up in January!
Let’s jump into it.

Audiobook

I have been busy so haven’t had a chance for a lot of physical reading. Coincidently audiobooks have been amazing. I took this time to relisten to some books so that I could finally continue or finish the series. So I am finally update/finished the Wayward Children series & Shades of Magic series. I’m also finally listening to Bookish and the Beast by Ashley Poston. The sequel for Crown of Coral and Pearl will be next up so I can finally finish off that one too!

Physical Read

Got to two of my most anticipated releases! The Mask Falling is book 4 in The Bone Season series which it has been a F*CKING LONG WAIT for! It was amazing so well worth the wait. Also picked up The Prison Healer as soon as I got my copy and it was so damn good! That cliffhanger was insane! I’m so glad it’s only a couple months to wait for book 2.

Currently Reading

Will be starting This is Not a Ghost Story as soon as I finish this post! I’m also currently listening to Bookish and the Beast which is pretty good so far.

Blog Titles (1)

Holy crap I read so much this month! I have been having some great reading month in the last couple months and this month was even better thanks to BookTubeAThon & Summer Biannual Bibliothon on top of the monthly ReadAThon I participate in, duodecathon!

I want to do something a little different on my wrap ups from now on! I am going to give a little bit of a mini review for all of the books that I read! I have a lot of books to talk about so I’m going to jump straight in!

This is a new favourite series for me! I absolutely loved reading this series! It is an amazing fantasy world, with awesome characters and amazing friendships! I highly recommend this series to fantasy lovers!

So, firstly I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Daughter of the Burning City! This world is so crazy and unique! You get dragged into this world and you can’t get out. Also, there are so many twists in the book that was so unexpected! I also really enjoy that this is a standalone fantasy which is really rare!
Cinder was a good read. I really enjoyed the world building in this book. This book is fairly action packed and I felt like there was always something going on! Cinder as a character was a little annoying at times but overall enjoyable. Kai annoyed me, if you want to know why then head to my review as I’m not going into it again. I did find this book a little predictable but overall enjoyable.
Since You’ve Been Gone was a really easy and fun read. I love that in all the Morgan Matson books I have read there is extra things added to the book, like in this one there were the list and also playlists! I really enjoyed most of the characters including Emily, Frank, Collins & Dawn!

So The Ocean at the End of the Lane was kinda meh for me. The swapping back and forward from the past to present was a tad confusing. I felt like at the end of this book I was still just as confused as when reading it, nothing was rounded off and explained. The characters were very mysterious and so was the world.
So I’m not going to say much about The Hobbit, like it’s The Hobbit! It’s bloody amazing! I also didn’t review this book as I couldn’t see the point.
The Life Siphon I enjoyed but I had a few issues with. First, it was a little predictable at times. Also, there were a fair few words that I had no idea how to pronounce in this book and it was a little confusing. The world building was alright but I needed more of it! I did enjoy the POV as it is kinda rare to read YA fantasy books from a male POV! I really enjoyed Tatsu’s character!

Finding Wonders was an amazing book! This is 3 short stories and they are non-fiction! This was also written in verse which I really enjoyed! I really enjoyed learning about these young girls from the 1800s that changed science! It was such an awesome, easy, fun and educational read!
Okay, so I didn’t review The Great Gatsby as I was just kinda confused. And I still don’t really know what to say about this book. It was okay, I didn’t love it and I was a little confused as to the point of this book.
Furthermore was such a fun and easy read! I really enjoyed the world building in this book, it’s such an interesting world and it was so fun learning about it. I do think the ending was really quick and kinda felt like it was just thrown together real quick and was kinda forced.

I really enjoyed The Bone Season. The first couple chapters were a little confusing before everything was starting to be explained. It does have a glossary in the back though which is handy if you know it’s there! This book was pretty action packed and the pacing was really good. The world is also really interesting and all the abilities are really unique.
Another one that I don’t think I need to talk about as everyone loves this book. But I do want to say that I didn’t feel like the characters acted their age. Both Percy & Annabeth are meant to be 12 years old but acted and spoke like they were a lot older!
So The Wicked + The Divine was my second ever graphic novel and I’m really enjoying it! The art work is gorgeous! It was a little hard to understand right at the start but once I got into it I was really enjoying it. The only thing I don’t like it this is only volume 1 and it’s short so there wasn’t a tonne that went on because the book isn’t that big. But I have ordered the next 3 volumes! I wish there was an option to buy the full set in one because it would make life a lot easier haha. But that’s just a personal thing that I think will annoy me about graphic novels that are on the shorter size per volume.

This was a reread for me so I’m not going to go into detail but I absolutely love this series! However, I will talk about the audiobook itself a little as a lot of people have asked me. The narrator’s voice takes a little to get used to. He really can’t do female voices, but you get used to it. His voice for Kavinsky was absolutely hilarious and I laughed at so much that he said that I didn’t think was funny in the actual book! Do not have your headphones in and turned right up during Blue Lily,  Lily Blue & The Raven King because when a certain character starts singing you will regret it!! But I do recommend the audiobook once you get used to it!

More Happy Than Not was a kinda meh book for me. The audiobook itself I didn’t love. For one the narrator sounded like he was saying Erin instead of Aaron, so the entire time I thought the MCs name is Erin! Also, his voice for Aaron and his voice for Thomas sounded exactly the same and it was confusing when they had a direct conversation! Now as for the actual book, I strongly disliked that there was cheating in this book and everyone acted like it was fine and not a big deal.. I also hated how Aaron acted towards Thomas and was convinced he was lying to himself and wouldn’t take Thomas’s word for it! That absolutely drove me insane. I did really enjoy Thomas though!
Half Bad was an interesting book and I really enjoyed the audiobook. I just felt like the accent of the narrator just felt right for the book and the story! I didn’t love at the start when it kinda went from the present to the past and back to the present. It was kinda confusing until I figured out what was going on. But besides that, I really enjoyed the book. I loved the theme of the ‘good guys’ aren’t always good. I liked Nathan’s character a lot too.
