August 2015 Wrap Up

Favorite of the month 

I read Shadow and Bone by Leight Bardugo, because I heard a lot of great things about it recently, and I’m glad to say that I wasn’t dissapointed. My favorite things about this book were the writing and the world in which the story took place. This book is definitely not an action pack book, but I still really liked it.

                             Rating: 4.5 stars

Read this month 

Apart from Shadow and Bone, I read 2 books and 3 short stories this month. 

The Design by R.S. Grey is a standalone, but there’s a companion novel that came out before. I read  the other book a while back and I really wanted to know more about Cammie, who is the main characters in  this book. That’s why I decided to read The Design. Sadly, I was a bit dissappointed, I felt like the characters were inconsistent, and I didn’t like a main element of the plot.

Rating: 3 stars

I read Bestiary (Bestiario) by Julio Cortázar, because my boyfriend gave it to me as a present a while ago and I finally felt like reading it. Also, I said that I would read more Latinamerican authors this year and I still need to do it . Just so you know, there is an english version of this collection of short stories, if you want to read it. I think some of the stories are great, but some are just too weird for my taste. And I didn’t enjoy the writing style that much.

Pale Kings and Princes is the sixth story in the Tales of  Shadowhunter Academy series of short stories. I love Simon and Isabelle as individual characters and as a couple. So I’m just gonna say: Finally! 

Rating: 5 stars

Bitter of Tongue is the seventh story. I like how this short stories are reveling important things for the new series. I can’t wait to read it!

Rating: 5 stars

My next read

I can’t wait for Queen of Shadows to come out! It needs to be september 1st NOW! I won’t read anything else, until I can get Queen of Shadows and start to read it.
