If we could ignore the fact that October is almost over and this is my July Wrap up that would be fantastic...
3. Freeks by Amanda Hocking
Every time I look at this book I'm still convinced that I haven't read it for around 30 seconds. Then I remember how much I enjoyed it and the plot begins to reappear from the depths of memory. Circus and Carnival books will forever hold a place in my heart (I still blame Caraval for this) and Freeks is no different!
I maintain my heart belongs to the dark and twisted manga but something about this series just makes me happy every time I come to write about it. It's fluff, there's no other word for it. There's a plot, is it mind blowing? No! Did I love reading this? Yes!
I have a review for Komomo Confiserie Volume One here.
Though this wasn't a new release this year I still think it's going to end up on my favourite books of 2017. The plot, the characters, everything about it spoke to me. If you haven't read this series please do. It's so good.
Yet another book that's going to be on the best of 2017 list...and at this point I'm starting to fear making that blog post. Flame in the Mist* is the first novel I've read set in Japan...nevermind Feudal Japan. An era that I knew nothing of. This novel is filled with incredible characters that grow so so much, a superb plot and some of the most beautiful prose I've ever had the pleasure of reading.
