SUMMER IS OVER. Isn’t that horrible news? I don’t hate fall or winter, but it is the return of the new academic year that scares me. As always, at the start of the season, I made a TBR – which you can find here. And as you may remember, it is always my goal to read at least half of every seasonal TBR. Which up until now, I had never succeeded in doing. BUT NO MORE. I DID IT!
So this was my summer TBR! I didn’t end up reading all of them, but I did read more than half! YAY ME! So let’s see which ones I actually ended up reading.
Splintered (Splintered #1) by A.G. Howard – ★★★★★ // I finally read the first book in this famous trilogy. I know, I’m so far behind on the trend. But I really enjoyed it! It actually took me by surprise. I still have to write a review on this one. But I’m wondering whether anyone would want to read it, because it’s such a well-known book it has hundreds of reviews already written.
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde – ★★★½ // I read this one at the beginning of the month. I actually only now remember that it was my goal to read 2 classics this year. One to go! I don’t know about this one. I liked it, but I was disappointed at the same time. I haven’t written a review on it yet, but I definitely want to do so!
Nowhere But Here (Thunder Road #1) by Katie McGarry – ★★★★ // A giant yes to this great contemporary novel by Katie McGarry. I already really enjoyed her Pushing the Limits series, so I knew I’d probably like this. I have written a full review on it, so go check that out if you want! I would recommend her books if you’re looking for YA contemporary.
The Master Magician (Paper Magician #3) by Charlie N. Holmberg – ★★★★ // I’m really glad I read this and finished the trilogy! It’s a really fun YA fantasy, really easy to get into. I really enjoyed the final book –even though the main character had me shaking my head a few times– and I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for us next.
The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles #1) by Patrick Rothfuss – ★★★★½ // I feel most proud of this one. Why? Because this book is a beast. It’s really intimidating! I highly enjoyed it, even though I have a few remarks regarding Denna –the main love interest, I guess.
