Let’s just pretend that this wrap up isn’t two weeks late and just get into it!
1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (book 1 in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series)
A Court of Thorns and Roses (ACOTAR) is a retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast story. The series follows a young huntress named Feyre who is out hunting to feed her family when she comes across a wolf, but unknown to her it wasn’t just any wolf.
My excuse for rereading these books is that I needed to prepare for the next book (which is only a novella). But we all know that’s a lie, the truth is that this is my favourite series and I just really wanted to reread it.
2. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (book 2 in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series)
3. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas (book 3 in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series)
4. The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen (book 1 in The Ascendance trilogy)
The kingdom is falling and war is coming. The country needs a king, so Connor will make one. Now four orphans must compete for the thrown and their lives.
I don’t even want to talk about this book anymore. I’ve said all that can be said and the story has already faded in my mind. You can read my review here.
5. Marked by P.C. Cast (book 1 in the House of Night series)
Zoey’s life is relatively normal, that is until she comes across a Vampyre in her school. Now that she’s marked she has to go live in the House Night, and hope that the change doesn’t kill her.
This book was kind of a mess, there were some big problems with the characters and the plot. But mostly this book was surprisingly addicting. It wasn’t very good and yet I couldn’t put it down. I still haven’t decided if I will be finishing the series, but you can read my review here.
6. Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather (book 2 in the How to Hang a Witch duology)
In the first book Samantha’s life is spiraling, first, her dad has an accident and get’s in a mysterious coma and now she’s moved to a town where everyone hates her for her last name. And when people start to die, the blame starts to fall on her.
How to Hang a Witch is one of my favourites of the year so far, so I was super excited to pick up the second book. While it wasn’t as good as the first book I still found it super gripping and fascinating. The plot managed to still be unique from the first book and it was extremely interesting to learn a bit more about the Titanic. You can read my review of How to Hang a Witch here.
7. Whisper by Lynette Noni (book 1 in the Whisper series)
For two years, six months, fourteen days, eleven hours and sixteen minutes I have been Jane Doe and a prisoner in a government facility. I don’t know what they want, but I do know that one wrong word could destroy the world.
Whisper has officially taken the place as my favourite book this year so far. Lynette has dived into an all new series and brought out something spectacular. I loved this book and I can’t wait for the next one. You can read my review here.
Overall it was a pretty good reading month, what did you read last month?
