Books Wrap Ups

June Wrap Up

September 13, 2017

Can you tell how far behind I am with blog posts? I know it's shameful. From what I remember in June I struggled to balance reading, working on my own book and working. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to read...though it's rare. 

3. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

I'd heard so many wonderful things about The Rest of Us Just Live Here and from the get go I loved the premise. A novel that followed the lives of those on the outskirts whilst the heroes saved the day. In the end it fell flat for me, I simply didn't like the execution. The story was enjoyable but nothing ground breaking. 

I do go into more depth in my review as to why I was so disappointed. 

But credit where credit is due this book was so wonderfully diverse. POC, gay and (possible) bi-sexual representation. 

Rating: 3/5

Goodreads page here.

Blue Exorcist Volume Two

This is one of my absolute favourite anime and manga series. We follow Rin who wants to become an exorcist and fight demons. However, he's also the son of satan. It make things a little bit tricky but with the help of his friends and brother Yukio he deals with the darkness inside of him. It has so many wonderful themes within it and the characters are all so well developed. 

Rating: 4.5/5

Goodreads page here.

Toradora Volume One

So in my review of Toradora I said I wasn't a fan of YA contemporary. Flash forward two months and the majority of the books I've bought have been exactly that... YA contemporary. I think if I read this again I'd probably enjoy it more now. I'll definitely be picking up the next volumes in the series so we shall soon see. 

Rating: 3/5

5. Hot Milk by Deborah Levy

Recently my forays into literary fiction have payed off so well. I really enjoyed this and it definitely got me in the holiday mood. It's not your typical beach read but it was set in Southern Spain so I'm counting it as a holiday read. Also I'm sensing a theme here, in June I was all about the books with cats in them! 

Raitng: 4/5

Apocalypti Girl

I loved the art style of this but I'm just sad it's a stand alone graphic novel. There was so much that could've been explored in this world and had the makings of an incredible series. However, this story was still wrapped up in a satisfying way. The ending felt a little rushed but that was all. 

Oh and there was a cat called Jelly Beans... what more could you need. 

Rating: 4/5
