Summer (May - August) 2019 Reading Wrap Up


SUMMER (MAY - AUGUST) 2019 READING WRAP UP

      So straight up, I didn't get that much reading done this past summer. That's not a bad thing, not a good thing, that's just the way things were. I would have liked to have read more, but at the same time I'm not disappointed in the amount of books I read. I'm ahead of my Goodreads challenge, and honestly that's really all I care about at this point. So without further ado, here are the books I read this summer.

MAY

9761771   14553836  33509076. sy475

      Pure by Jennifer L Armentrout- This is the 2nd book in the Covenant series and was a reread for me. I'm rereading the entire series with my best friend because we both really enjoyed this series when we were in high school. I've forgotten so much of what happened in these books, but I still love them.

      Fuck I'm in My Twenties by Emma Koenig- This book has been on my TBR ever since I turned 20. I didn't expect to get much from it going into it and that's exactly what I got. It took my like 30 minutes or less to flip through this book. It was funny, but nothing special.

      Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel- I saw this book at my library and decided to check it out without really knowing anything about it. I hadn't read a book in less than a day in forever, so it felt really good powering through this bad boy so fast. The beginning act was rough, but it grew on me a lot. The romance was so unrealistic but gave me fuzzy feelings nevertheless. The supernatural aspect was really interesting and I would love to know more about the lore behind it.

JUNE

      The Hating Game by Sally Thorne- I originally read this book last June funny enough and decided to reread it again this summer. Somehow I loved it even more the 2nd time reading it, and that never happens. This book does the enemies to lovers trope perfectly and the whole nursing the other person back to health trope is one of my favorite tropes on Earth. I could reread this book over and over again. 

      Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout- This is book 3 in the Covenant series that I'm rereading with my best friend. I forgot how much pops off at the end of this book, and that made me super excited to get to the other books.

      Giant Days- This graphic novel series is one I've been reading since like sophomore year of university. I really enjoy this and will keeping reading it until it's no longer a thing.

JULY

13605727   40291564

      Elixir by Jennifer L Armentrout- This is a novella between he 3rd and 4th books in the Covenant series. While it isn't my favorite, it gives some important insight on the events that transcribe between those books. This novella is from Aiden's POV (the MC's love interest) and it just broke my heart reading this because he goes through so much shit for this girl.

      Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout- Apparently I only read JLArmentrout in July so that's interesting. This really banged. I can always count on Jennifer L. Armentrout's books being absolutely everything I need them to be. Paranormal romance will forever be my favorite genre and I can't wait to see what happens next. It doesn't even matter that I remembered next to nothing from the main series this spin off series is based on because the characters and plot make it great on its own.

AUGUST

42201395   41150487. sy475    36439333

      Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson- You can read my full review here, but I thought this book was just slightly above okay. There was a lot that wasn't explained and it felt very fantasy-lite. The fact that it was a standalone didn't help either.

    Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston- You can read my full review here, but overall this was a cute read. I didn't like it as much as everyone and their mother did, but I still had a really good time reading it.

      Matchmaking for Beginngers by Maddie Dawson- This was a free book I decided to pick up on Prime Reading and it ended up being perhaps my favorite book I read this summer. Like this was a 4.5 Star book. I don't typically like women's fiction or chick-lit, but this book was just an amazing read. I love the two POVs we get to read from and the events that unfold in their lives. It was written so well and I just devoured it for the 5 hours I was at the airport. 


      Those are the books that I read this summer. As you can see, it was very much a summer of paranormal/fantasy romance and contemporary books, which honestly best describes my reading tastes. Without a doubt, my favorite book with the curve ball out of nowhere, Matchmaking for Beginners. I'd say my least favorite book was Fuck I'm in My Twenties.

       What did you guys read this summer? Have you read any of the books I did, and if so what did you think? Tell me everything down in the comments.
