June Book Haul 2015

5 BOOKS PEOPLE! JUST 5
Initially I didn't want to get any books this month but I am very happy that I only got 5.



Book One: The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige. The sequel to Dorothy Must Die. I flew by the first book and it is one of my favourite retellings this year. I didn't anticipate the book to be in Waterstones but as soon as I saw the book I immediately grabbed it and didn't let go. 

Book Two: P.S I Still Love You by Jenny Han. The sequel in the duology of To All The Boys I've Loved Before. I read the first book some time last year and loved it. I have always wanted the book but I didn't really think I would get the book so quickly but I am very happy that the two books are together. Also I live the spine colours, first book is pink and the second is blue. So cute :)

Book Three: The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell. I haven't read a David Mitchell book before but when I saw the book advert on Goodreads, I got interested. I don't know what happens in the…

June Wrap-Up 2015

I didn't read as many books this month as I hoped. At the very beginning of the month I read two books in the first week and suddenly it went down hill.
I blame myself because I got distracted with a Korean game-variety show called Running Man. At the moment I am at ep 130 and I love it. 

So it is my fault for not reading anything. I have only read 5 books (slap on the wrist).

The Darkest Part Of The Forest by Holly Black. Goodreads Star Rating:4/5. I had seen this book floating around on Booktube and when I saw the book in Waterstones, I knew I had to buy the book and I am very glad I picked it up. I loved how it is a darker story of fairies and the people in the town have no other choice but to respect them and not get hurt. I also liked the inclusion of LGBT characters.

The Retribution Of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. Goodreads Star Rating: 4/5. A final conclusion to the trilogy. I had read a few mixed reviews of this book but personally I enjoyed the book, the book felt more darke…

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Feyre's survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill - the forest is where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter nights. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting in for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price.
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more that his piercing green eyes would suggest.Feyre's presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn hostility to passion and the faerie lands become and even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break and ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
After reading the first three books of the Throne of Glass series and hearing that Sarah was releasing a new book series, I was very excited. 
Based off the story of Beauty and the Beast, I have been …
