June Wrap Up!

The Martian by Andy Weir

This is one of my favourite books of this year. I felt so invested in the characters and the space setting was so realistically written and described, I felt like I was reading a non-fiction account.

The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness

This was a magical and captivating read loosely based on a Japanese folk tale. I absolutely loved this; I got completely hooked into the story and the writing style, and ended up reading this within 24 hours. I just needed to know what was going to happen and this is definitely what I needed.

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Everyone has been talking about Morgan Matson recently because of her new book and although I like the sound of that one, I couldn’t justify picking it up until I had read the one book of hers that I already own so I picked this one up. I ended up finishing it within 24 hours, loving the characters and the surprising depth of the story, and it is a brilliant roadtrip/summer read.

Invisibility by Andrea Cremer & David Levithan

Sadly, although I really  liked the concept of the plot in this book, it fell really short for me. I didn’t really like the characters and felt that the characters were not developed very well. I will still continue to read more of Levithan’s work but this one was disappointing to me.

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

I wanted to read this book after seeing the film about 3 years ago and to be honest, I did enjoy it but at times I felt that some of the language used was unnecessary. It’s a fun quick contemporary, but just be aware of the content.

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I enjoyed this book but I think that it was really slow at points, feeling more like a bridge between the first and third rather than an important book in the series, however the ending really picked up the pace so I am looking forward to finishing this series.

Mack the Life: The Autobiography by Lee Mack

I really enjoyed this book, even though it took me 3 months to read for some unknown reason, and I found it fun to read something non-fiction for a change! I would definitely recommend this if you like Lee Mack, it’s a must-read for Lee Mack fans.

William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope by Ian Doescher

I enjoyed this book but there were some things that annoyed me about it. Some bits were a little slow and confusing and I didn’t particularly like the illustrations within the story.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

I finished this right at the end of the month and absolutely loved every page of it! The pacing was really well done and the twist on the classics was brilliant!
