Wrap Up: July 2017

As I said in my last wrap up I injured by eyes so I'm still having trouble reading hence why I haven't gotten to that many books. But I am still happy with the amount I have read. 

1. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

Of the books I've read so far this is most certainly the best. From the get go the story captured my attention. I didn't want to put it down but I wanted to keep up with the Harry Potter read-a-long so sadly I put it down but picked it up as soon as I was caught up. This was action packed and even though I could see of the plot twists coming it didn't lessen my enjoyment. 

My only issue reading City of Glass is that I enjoyed the conclusion so much I questioned whether or not to finish the series.

Rating: 5/5

2. The Rest of us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

I bought this book predominately because of the cover. It is absolutely gorgeous. The premise of this book is about this town with supernatural tendencies but rather then focus on the people with powers this book focuses on 'normal' people. I thought the premise was interesting and there was a lot of diversity which was great. But the one thing I will take away from this book is how respectfully mental health was portrayed. Would recommend this one. Full review here.

3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

This is a longggggggg ass book. 766 pages to be exact. While I was reading I was quite proud of the fact that the first time I read this I would have been 11-12 years old. I think that is very impressive for an 11-12 year old. But enough about me...on to the book. Like I said this book is a chunker we see more friendships developing and also learn more about OWLs and their importance. We also have wonderful Umbridge to deal with. She is possibly the most horrible women in history. What this book does well is lay the foundation for what is to come. Fair warning though Harry is very whiny in this book.
