Eden’s Wrap Up – June

Wooooo, June was a crazy month for me.

Surprisingly, I got a decent amount of reading in this month. Usually between my job and life, June and July tend to be my slowest reading months.

Anyway. Wrap up time.

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

4/5 stars

  • I did a review on this book where I talked about how little I cared for the Blackthorn family. My sentiments remain the same, however, I’m eagerly awaiting the second book because the ending to this killed me a little.

'Me_Before_You'

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

4/5 stars

  • Jenn and Caitlynn are terrible people. They pushed me to read this book and I’m not entirely convinced it was all with best intentions. This book destroyed me. I mean, my boyfriend found me sitting on our couch crying in the middle of a Saturday afternoon. Sometimes I still feel haunted by the characters in this book.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

5/5 stars

  • We had a nice little discussion about this book and my love for Jesper Fahey. Check it out if you haven’t. I’m excited to read the second book. I’m curious as to whether we’ll make it another discussion book or if I’ll go ahead and read it on my own.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

5/5 stars

  • This book reminded me of how awful I am when I fall in love with books. I reviewed this book as well and when I did I mentioned that I was trying to pace myself on the books. Here’s my confession, series like The Raven Boys bring out a monster in me. I quit sleeping and eating and focus all of my energy on binging the series. That’s what I’ve done with this. I’ve slept maybe an average of four hours a night for the last week. I’m a healthy person.

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

4/5 stars

  • Like I just said. I am a sick person. I bought this book and the other two the morning after I finished the first one. The only reason Blue Lily, Lily Blue and The Raven King aren’t on here is because I exercised a level of control I didn’t know I had to give Jenn and Caitlynn time to catch up with me. I’ve been waiting three days and I feel like I’m about to drop the charade and just finish the series.

The Glittering Court - Richelle Mead

The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

2/5 stars

  • There’s a lot to say about this book. A lot of bad things. All of which have been discussed and cataloged for our post on Saturday. Keep an eye out. The discussion was pretty entertaining.

 

Ok guys. That’s it. Leave me comments below and let me know what you read this month. Have you read any of these? Are you sick like me and binge series?

  1. I’ve definitely been on defense with Lady Midnight too, it’s just so longgggg. And I’m excited to get into the Raven Cycle, I keep hearing amazing things about it! (Also, love the Blue Neighbourhood album featured in the main photo!)

    1. The Raven Cycle is so worth it. I’m obsessed. Also, Lady Midnight was hard for me to finish. I gave it four stars, but it was something that I wrestled with for a bit.

      Haha, I’m glad the album is noticeable!

  2. I totally agree with you regarding how The Glittering Court was a bit of a disappointment. I’ll actually be posting a review about the novel on my new blog today! I just bought Me Before You, and I’m excited to start reading it!

    1. Right? I’ve always ben a huge fan of Richelle Mead. I read all of the Vampire Academy series as well as the Bloodlines series. I’ve been following Meads writing for years so it was surprising to read something that I actually didn’t like by her. The Glittering Court just really let me down.

      1. Oh man. That was actually something that was a part of our discussion for tomorrow’s post. There were a good 100 pages where I just blindly read and thought, “Why is this in this book? Why is this happening?”

        The book totally threw some stuff at me that I didn’t really understand. And even a week later, I’m still wondering what Mead was thinking.

      2. Yeah. I absolutely will not be reading the sequel. I was surprised to hear that this wasn’t a stand alone. Honestly, the story seemed over. I guess we have more frontier stuff to do. *Sigh* If it had been marketed as a western-lite I might not have been so upset. But it was supposed to be about court intrigue and finishing schools. That was less than half of the book.

      3. I got about 3/4 the way through it and had to look it up to see if it was a series because there was so much stuff that happened in the first 200 pages alone. When I saw it’s supposed to be a trilogy I just laughed because, honestly, what can you add to this story that hasn’t already been done?
