July Wrap-Up

Hiya! Before we start I just want to say that I’m so sorry for the month long hiatus. I’ve been very busy lately. Nevertheless, I am back and ready to delve into the book blogging world once more!

Novels I Read

Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon: 4.5 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐⭐) I really loved this one! It was beautifully written, and was a lovely introduction to Nicola Yoon’s books. Review to come!

Sugar and Spite by Gail D. Villanueva: 3.5 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐) This was the perfect summer read. Review to come!

Luck of the Titanic by Stacey Lee: 4 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐⭐) Unfortunately, my expectations were too high. Nevertheless, it was still a good story! Review to come.

(ARC) Aristotle and Dante Dive into the Waters of the World by Benjamin Alire Sáenz: 4.75 out of 5 stars. (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) I adored the book! But the ending was not for me. Review to come!

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera: 4.25 out of 5 stars. (⭐⭐⭐⭐) Obviously, this was sad. However, I didn’t cry as much as I expected myself too?? In my humble opinion, it’s a teensy bit overhyped. Review to come!

Graphic Novels and Manga read

The Girl from the Sea by Molly Ostertag: 3.5 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐) I really enjoyed reading this! Unfortunately though, it didn’t stand out all that much. You can read my full review here!

The Promised Neverland Volume 19 by Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu: 4.5 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐⭐) This volume had a lot of plot twists, some of which didn’t make much sense to me. Nevertheless, I’m very excited for the final volume!

The Delinquent Housewife! Volume 1 by Nemu Yoko: 3.25 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐) I had high expectations for this series, but the jokes weren’t that funny to me.

Levius/est Volume 1 by Haruhisa Nakata: 3.25 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐) I picked this one up on a whim. While I didn’t love it, the story was quite interesting. I recommend Levius/est to sci fi fans!

Paper Girls Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan: 3.5 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐) This was…interesting.

Pink Is for Boys by Robb Pearlman and Eda Kaban: 4.25 out of 5 stars (⭐⭐⭐⭐) This was such a cute picture book!

First, let’s recap! Last month I said I’d read two netgalley ARCs, and read 10 novels. Unfortunately though, that didn’t happen. I read five novels, and only one ARC. Reading slumps happen! And that’s totally okay! I think it’s better that I took a break and just read at my own pace. :))

Some of my goals for August include…

  • Finish two netgalley ARCs
  • Read 4 novels

And that’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed reading about my July in books. I’d love to know about yours too! If you’d like, you can read last month’s wrap up here. Have a fabulous day!

February Wrap-Up

Hey everyone! Here is my February wrap-up! A couple books were not listed as I haven’t finished them yet. Anyways, let’s get right into it! I hope you enjoy!

(PS; Click on the post thumbnails to view the posts!)

Novels I Read (In order)

A Castle In The Clouds by Kerstin Gier: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.25 out of 5 stars) This was such a cozy book! It’s a mystery novel perfect for winter. It’s also translated from German to English. I highly recommend it! You can read my review for it here!

Together, Apart by A Collection of Authors: ⭐⭐⭐ (3.5 out of 5 stars) This was a collection of short stories by numerous authors. It dealt with COVID-19, and was very cute and relatable. I recommend this book to anyone wanting a fun and light novel to read. Review to come!

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: I haven’t finished it yet, but I am enjoying it. This is also the first Jane Austen novel I’m reading, and I’m doing a buddy read with Cherry @ Letters To The Lost!

Graphic Novels and Manga read

Blue Flag Volume 2 by Kaito: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.5 out of 5 stars) This is honestly such a melancholy series. It’s so happy, yet so sad? I can’t necessarily relate to the characters, and I think that’s what makes it such an intriguing story. I don’t know what happens next, hence why I cannot wait to get my hands on volume three!

The Way of the Househusband Volume 4 by Kousuke Oono: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4 out of 5 stars) I will admit that the humor was starting to get old in the third volume. However, this addition proved to be both hilarious and unexpected. 😂

Something Is Killing The Children Volume 2: ⭐⭐⭐ (3.75 out of 5 stars) This particular volume wasn’t as exciting as the first volume, but was as intriguing as always! We also got introduced to some new characters, which I am super excited to get to know more about in the future. Can’t wait for volume three to come out!

Ao Haru Ride Volume Volume 10 by Io Sakisaka: ⭐⭐⭐ (3.5 out of 5 stars) Io Sakisaka sure knows how to write a heart wrenching story! The art is absolute perfection as always.

The Promised Neverland Volume 18: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.75 out of 5 stars) Incredibly expressive art style as always, I’m sad to say that there are only two volumes left! The journey has been incredible, and I’m sad to see it end. I highly recommend you read this one, it’s such a mind boggling series!

Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles Volume 2 by Naru Narumi: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4 out of 5 stars) This was both an educational an entertaining read that left me very hungry!

Shortcake Cake Volume 1 by Suu Morishita: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.75 out of 5 stars) If you’re looking for something light and cute, this is the book for you! It’s filled with such unique and well developed characters. And to think that it’s only the first volume!

SPY×FAMILY Volume 1: I haven’t finished this volume yet, however, I am absolutely loving it! It’s about a spy family. I mean, how cool is that?

First, let’s recap! Last month, I said I wanted to read all of the books on my eARC TBR. That didn’t necessarily go as planned, and that’s okay. 😆 I did however, manage to stay hydrated throughout the days.

Some of my goals for March include…

  • Finish my eARC TBR
  • Post more on bookstagram

I might not have read that much this year, but I did enjoy the books I read this month more than the ones I read last month, so I am happy about that. My schedule has gotten progressively busier, so I might not be able to post as much. I will try my best to interact with all of you lovely people though! You can read last month’s wrap-up here! And with that, I bid you adieu. Have a fabulous day and a wonderful March!
