I can’t believe summer is wrapping it. I have got to say my reading list this month has been amazing. I honestly can’t recall anything that has happened outside of my bookland. Here they are though:
1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
It’s been a long time coming. I can’t believe it took me this long to get my hands on this book. Red Queen takes place in a world were people divided according to the color of their blood. The reds are inferior to the silvers. Many of the silvers seem themselves as Gods, reigning over the less fortunate red society. Along with their privilege, the silvers have abilities. But then there’s Mare – a cross between the two. The ending to this novel shocked my whole being. What a twist!
2.This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
This Savage Song was released this month. It has been much anticipated by YA readings, especially those entranced by dystopian worlds. I was impressed by the creativity behind world Schwab created. I wrote a book review on the novel, if you’re interested in more about the book – check it out over there.
3. Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire
I read Beautiful Disaster early this year and absolutely love it. I couldn’t wait to pick up Beautiful Oblivion. Beautiful Oblivion follows Travis’ older Maddox brother, Trenton. I would definitely recommend reading Beautiful Disaster prior to this book because McGuire make so many references to that story within this one. I loved it!
4. Confess by Colleen Hoover
Colleen Hoover never disappoints. I was shocked, amazed, and excited throughout reading this book. It was definitely a good, short summer read. I absolutely love how Hoover concludes her novel, everything is tied together perfectly and everything makes sense!
5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I CAN’T. Rainbow Rowell does it again. I am so in love with this book, I’m actually thinking about re-reading it and I just finished it an hour ago. Levi is perfection. I’m fairly upset he isn’t read, because… come on! I need a Levi. I was also completely happy with the ending. I don’t want to spoil any of it, you guys just need to go pick it up now. I’m not even joking.
Books I’ve started:
- The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
- Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
Thank you July for being so good to me. I’d love to hear what you guy’s favorite book was this month!

I have been wanting to read the Red Queen but have been put off by the mixed reviews. I read my first Victoria Schwab book, The Archived, in July and really liked it. I just started reading the second in the series The Unbound today, so hope I like it just as much as the fist.
I would recommend trying Red Queen when you get the chance. I think that some of it is typical of a dystopian novel, but I really enjoyed it and was surprised by the ending.

Thanks I will definitely pick it up soon
I’m glad you enjoyed Rainbow Rowell.
I read Illuminae this month and I’m such an idiot for putting it off because it was incredible.
Illuminae? I have to look into that.

It’s written in a really interesting format where it documents an incident aboard a space warship
