Books Wrap Ups

July Wrap Up

August 6, 2019

A slightly slower reading month this time. I read a lot, but most of it was manga which I tend to be able to get through in about two hours per volume. I did, however, love what I read which was wonderful. My reading took a hit when I went on holiday and although I planned to read loads (my overly ambitious TBR here) I spent most of the time in the pool with friends drinking cocktails. It was so relaxing.

David Mogo Godhunter* by Suyi Davies Okungbowa

David Mogo Godhunter by Suyi Davies Okungbowa

**I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for taking part in the blog tour**

What a pleasant surprise of a novel! This story was so unique and captivating. The way it was set up felt almost like three separate stories within the one. In this story, the Gods have been expelled from their homeland and have made a new home in Lagos and are causing havoc (for the most part). David Mogo is part God and just so happens to be very good at finding and moving on these deities. His latest case takes him down a very dangerous path, one he begins to regret very quickly.

Seraph of the End Volume Eleven

I love this series so much. It's going to be kind of difficult to actually tell you about these books though as what happens gets really spoiler-y...and we don't do spoilers with no warnings here. So I'm just gonna give you my ratings and links. Basically, this series follows a catastrophe that wiped out all the adults and brought about the rise of these vampires. Now part of the government, the Moon Demon Company seek out these vampires and fight them. Then the series expands from there.

Needlemouse* by Jane O’Connor

Needlemouse by Jane O'Connor

**I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for participation in the blog tour**

I super cute book that I first thought wouldn't be my cup of tea. I struggled with the first quarter of this book. I didn't like the main character and felt as though she was too whiney. Then as I read more I came to feel for her and understand how she had been led down that specific path. It was a novel steeped in self-discovery and emphasised the power of picking yourself up and carrying one even when it feels like you can't.

The Girl in Red* by Christina Henry

The Girl in Red by Christina Henry

A huge thank you once again to Titan Books for sending over a copy of The Girl in Red.

What a phenomenal book. I read this as one of the books I plan to use for my dissertation and I can't wait to put my analysis into action.

The entire novel is a Red Riding Hood retelling in the midst of some kind of chemical outbreak. People are getting ill with a cough and dying in a matter of days. Our Red Riding Hood is called Cordelia but goes by red. She is a mixed raced, LGBTQ, amputee and a kick-ass woman. There's an awful lot to unpack in this novel. It adheres to a lot of the characteristics of the Red Riding Hood tale but still manages to be a story in its own right.
