July was a very, very good reading month for me. I read nine books, three of them being for school, and enjoyed most of them.
My five star reads were: Moloka’i by Alan Brennert, A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews, Solitaire by Alice Oseman, and Bright We Burn by Kiersten White. These were all absolutely wonderful reads that I could hardly put down! They had very few faults, if any, and I will have a review up for all of them eventually.
The four stars were: The Stranger by Albert Camus, I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman, and About Grace by Anthony Doerr. The Stranger was for school, but a surprisingly enjoying read. About Grace was also for school, and while not as great as All the Light we Cannot See by the same author, it had the same subtle beauty and symbolism. I wish I Was Born for This made is onto the five star list, but I couldn’t connect to the plot enough (review to come for this one only).
The three stars were: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and P.S. I Like You by Kasie West. Brave New World was weird to say the least and the last half was infinitely better than the first (this was also for school). P.S. I Like You was cute, but the romance could have been better developed and healthier. Neither will have full reviews, but you can see some brief thoughts on Goodreads.
I was lucky enough not to have any one or two star reads! My favorite of the month was by far Bright We Burn, which I should have a review for very soon! I hope you all had wonderful reading months; I know I did!
