Who can believe that half the month has already flown by?! I celebrated my birthday and read some great ( and not so great books). Listed below, in order from most to least favorite are the books I managed to read this month, along with links to the full length review! Blurbs about my top three are located below as well.
I fell in love with the way Dessa writes, the way her words so effortlessly describe her feelings. I was super surprised that I could relate so much to a rapper, much less one I didn’t know. I wrote so many annotations in the margins, and highlighted so much that it looks like a journal right now. This was a 5 star, recommend to everyone memoir that I couldn’t put down.
This was definitely geared toward a younger audience, but despite some more negative reviews, I loved the creativity of the author. She managed to take a different take on the boarding school, supernatural thing and I loved the book because of it. The historical setting, and slow burning romantic/self-sacrificial plot line was just the cherry on top.
Probably one of my favorite historical fiction novels yet, for the way that I learned more about Eva Braun in just the novel than I have in all of my history classes combined. The blend of fact and fiction was better than my favorite coffee!
Have you read any? Will you read any? And with which ratings/reviews do you agree?
Here’s to the other half of the year and a happy July! ♥️
