The first book I finished in July was one that I started at the end of June, and it was:
The Selection by Kiera Cass
And next, I naturally read:
The Elite by Kiera Cass
Next, I needed to finish this because I had to return it to the library, but it made me sooooo sad because I LOVED this book too much. And that book is:
Everything Leads to You by Nina Lacour
Next, I read a book that I was going to read no matter what. And that is:
Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth
And then Booktube-a-Thon came. Long story short, I failed it. And by that, I mean it feels like everyone read more than I did, but I am still proud of how much I read. If you want a wrap-up on my page count and all that stuff, like right here to go see it.
First, I read:
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
I don't have a seperate review for this, but if I finish the series in August (which probably won't happen) I will do a series review on this. But I probably will do a review for this because I don't think I can finish Of Neptune at this point because I have too may books to read.
Anyway, this follows a girl named Emma and she literally runs into this guy named Galen (seriously, how do you say his name? Is it said like Gal-lon, or Gaw-len?) and he is this Syrena prince (Syrena are basically mermaids). Anyway, I really enjoyed this book, it definitely was a summery read since it was light and fun. But, it isn't perfect. My main problem with this is that Emma's POV is in first and Galen's is in third. I did not like that at all, and whenever I write my seperate review on it, I will discuss why. But, I gave this book a 4/5 stars.
Next, I went off my TBR a little bit and read:
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I will only say a couple of things about this book. I think that it is worth reading, but if you decide to read this, here's my advice before picking it up: Do not remember the hype at all. If you do it will probably kill the book for you. I used that and I really enjoyed it. I do have a review on this book, but do not read the review unless you have read this book or else you will be spoiled. I gave it a 4.5/5 stars. That is all I will say.
And then Booktube-a-Thon ended, and the day after it ended, I naturally finish:Of Triton by Anna Banks
The last book I finished was:
The One by Kiera Cass
And that's it guys. Those are all the books I read. Now onto the TBR.
Like the last couple of months, I have some books I know I am going to read, but I want to leave some room for other books.
I have two goals for this month: marathon series I need to marathon, and read contempories.
First, marathoning series. I have three series I want to marathon, and I am currently at least part way through them.
My main one is to marathon the remaining four books in the Luxen series by Jennifer L. Armentrout with
I am currently over a third of the way through Onyx, and I will by marathoning the rest of them, especially since Opposition is coming out this month, in like four days actually (i'm not ready. no literally I am not). My reading for these will be slow (i'll try to read them as fast as I can guys), so DO NOT SPOIL ME FOR OPPOSITION, at least until I finish it, and we can then discuss spoilers.
I also plan on, on and off throughout the month, to finally, FINALLY marathon the first two books in the Throne of Glass series, because I really want Heir of Fire. So I will be reading:
I am currently about a fourth of the way through Throne of Glass, so I will be reading it inbetween the Luxen series. And, for those of you who have read these books, if you want to know a fun fact, I accidentally spoiled myself for a little bit of Crown of Midnight because I looked at the last page. Just lovely. But I am still excited for this.
And this last series is another completion that I am buddy reading with someone so I will ALSO be reading this inbetween the Luxen series, and it is the remanidering two books in the Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi, so I will be completing the books with:
And my read contemporary goal, I will just try to be reading all of the contemporaries mostly for the second half of the month because I really want to read some more contemporaries. If you have one you think I should read this month (that isn't Stephanie Perkins because I'm not getting Isla and the Happily Ever After for reasons) or you think I should review, please leave it in the comments below.
What have you read in July and what do you plan on reading in August?
