July 2015 Wrap Up

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae CarsonFavorite of the Month

The Girl of Fire and Thorns was not only my favortire book of the month, but it’s also my favorite book of the year so far. I love everything about this book, starting with the diverse characters, but also the writing style, the world building and the character development.

Read this month 

Apart from The Girl of Fire and Thorns,  I read 4 other books this month and a short story. 

The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella
I have been meaning to read a Sophie Kinsella book for a while …and I finally did! The Undomestic Goddess was amazing, what I loved the most about it was the writing style and the relatable characters.

Angels and Demons by Dan Brown

I love mystery books, and Angels and Demons definitely did not disappoint. I spent the whole time wondering what was gonna happen next. 

Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote

I watched the Breakfast at Tiffany’s  movie years ago and I really liked it, but the book was really good as well. The other stories in this book were a bit disapointing. 

The Evil We Love by Cassandra Clare

Simon and Isabelle  were my favorite characters of the Mortal Instruments series, so I have been following this series of short stories…and I’m loving them! 
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

This book got me out of a reading slump that lasted most of the month, so I’m really grateful. I think what I liked the most about this book was the world building. 

Currently Reading 
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I started to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone this month, but I didn’t finish it yet.  I’m really enjoying it so far.

  1. Looks like you had a great month! I haven't read any of the books you mentioned (Nooooo) but there are a few that are on my TBR. Been meaning to get to Daughter and Smoke and Bone so I really hope you enjoy it. The Orphan Queen has been talked about so I've been hoping to get to it soooon. Great recap! 🙂

  2. I've been hearing some really great things about The Girl of Fire and Thorns so I'm going to have to give it a shot eventually. (I mean, it's seriously had a huge surge of popularity and I'm hearing about it everywhere. … Maybe that's a sign I need to read it sooner rather than later.) I do also want to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone because I hear great things about it, too. Hope you like it. I'll probably read The Mortal Instruments short stories (of course, I've got to actually read the series first – hoping to get to it soon) but I'm waiting to see if they release them in hardback like they did with The Bane Chronicles.
