June Wrap-Up & July TBR – Amber

Hi! Today I will share my June Wrap-Up & July TBR.

June Wrap-Up

  • Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh, 4.5 out of 5 stars. I’m working on my review and it should be going up soon, or at least within the next month.
  • World Mythology in Bite-Sized Chunks by Mark Daniels, 3 out of 5 stars. It wasn’t really my thing, I love mythology but this wasn’t really what I was expecting, sure it was nice to read about all kinds of mythology but I don’t know, it felt kind of dragging on and on about some things.
  • Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, no rating because I feel like it doesn’t need one.
  • The Ice Dragon by George RR Martin, 4 out of 5 stars. It was very nice for a ”fairytale” and every age can, in my opinion, read it and enjoy it.
  • Wu: The Chinese Empress Who Schemed, Seduced and Murdered Her Way to Become a Living God by Jonathan Clements, 2 out of 5 stars. I did NOT enjoy this book. It was dragging on about what Wu did in that year and what crimes she committed. I was interested at first which is why I gave it 2 stars and not 1. Her crimes were amazingly planned out and were very interesting to read about but that is kind of it, I didn’t care about who she slept with and about who she may have killed. It was fun to read about why and which Chinese characters she changed, because no one else did it, but that’s it. Nothing else really happened and it was kind of disappointing.
  • Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor, 4 out of 5 stars. It took me awhile to get into this book but just as the first Magnus Chase I really enjoyed. It’s a classic Rick Riordan book and his books never fail me.
  • The Thousandth Floor by Katherine McGee, 4 out of 5 stars. It was interesting to read about this world, divided into really poor and really rich. My favourite characters to read about were Rylin, Watt and Cord. I will write a review about this soon, which is probably after I finish my test week.
  • Into the Water by Paula Hawkins,4 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t too scary which I was thought it would be and I’m actually kind of happy about that. It was an interesting concept to read about and I think it’s one of my favourites of this year.

July TBR

  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan.
  • The Valiant by Lesley Livingston.
  • The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien.
  • The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien.
  • The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien.
  • The Return of the King by JRR Tolkien.
  • Roar by Cora Carmack.
  • Mage’s Blood by David Hair.

My TBR is ambitious but I think I will manage. My Summer vacation almost starts and I think I will be able to read all of them in that period.

That’s it for today.
