Hello everyone, I know I’ve taken a little break from posting, I just needed a little R&R, but I’m back and ready for another reading wrap-up! I read some amazing books this month and I am so excited to share them with you.
The Golden Lily, The Indigo Spell and The Fiery Heart– Books number 2,3, and 4 in the Bloodlines series from Richelle Mead. I really enjoy anything written by this author, it is considered Young Adult, but I think it still is an interesting story line. This series is basically the sequel to the Vampire Academy series. The next book in the series is Silver Shadows and it set to be released in July of 2014, yes I’ve already preordered the book!
It’s Kind of a Funny Story– I already wrote a mini review of this book a few weeks ago, but I’ll refresh everyone’s memory. The book written by Ned Vizzini is actually based on his life. It follows a week where Vizzini was hospitalized from his depression. It gives an honest look at depression and I highly recommend the book for anyone suffering from depression, or anyone who is interesting in fun awkward situations.
FanGirl- Written by Rainbow Rowell FanGIrl was probably my favorite read this month! It is a cute story following the main character Cath in her first year of college. Cath must juggle her family, school, and boys all while writing her very popular fan fiction. It is just an all around fun read. Perfect for a long plane ride or a day poolside.
Where She Went– The sequel to If I Stay by author Gayle Forman. Where she went takes place three years after Mia’s accident and is written from Adam’s point of view. I don’t want to give away too much for those of you who haven’t had a chance to read If I Stay yet, but I will say if you plan of reading these books make sure you have a full day free because you are not going to be able to put these books down.
Orange is the New Black: My year in a Women’s Prison– Obviously this book by Piper Kerman was recently made into a T.V show and people are going nuts over it. I watched the first season before deciding to read the book, but personally I prefer the book. It is very honest and not as outlandish as the show is. Overall it was good, if you like the show and enjoy reading pick it up, but be warned it’s not the drama fest the show is.
The Glass Castle– A beautiful and hilarious memoir by Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle, recounts her life with her unorthodox parents. This is lovely heartfelt book; this is not a love story, or a scary story, it’s just Jeannette’s life, but it is definitely worth picking up next time you’re out and about.
Reached– Reached is the third and final book in a series by Ally Condie. The first book Matched follows Cassia as she learns about her society, in Crossed the second book we hear Cassia’s point of view as well as Ky, one of her suitors, point of view. Lastly, Reached follows not only Cassia and Ky, but also Xander, Cassia’s other suitor. If you know me you know that I am not a huge fan of the love triangle. It was a good story and I think the books are well written. If you enjoy love triangles and oppressive societies than I highly suggest added Matched, Crossed and Reached to your summer reading list.
The month of June is dedicated to reading The Mortal Instruments series!
