Hi bookworms! June was a busy month for me and didn’t have much time to read, so this month’s wrap up will be short. I spent most of this month helping my sister with her kids since she recently had surgery. Before I left to stay with my sister, I had several posts planned for June that I hadn’t publish so I will move those to this month. So be on the lookout for lots of new content 😊🤗
We Are Lost and Found – Helene Dunbar | I gave this book 2.75 stars out of 5. I wanted to like this I really did, especially since it is set in the 80s and centers around a gay teen in that era. However, the writing style was not it for me with its lack of quotations making it harder to know when a quote starts/ends or who said what. As for the plot, I expected more, but I won’t say what exactly to avoid spoilers.
A Totally Awkward Love Story – Tom Ellen & Lucy Ivison | Another 2.75 star rating. Instagram hyped this one up and it didn’t deliver (at last for me it didn’t). My main issue is that I was really annoyed with certain characters including the main character Hannah. There was also nothing “awkward” about the “love story.” To me, it just seemed like a bunch of unfortunate events. I’ll end there before I start rambling.
The Brother’s Grimm: Illuminated Fairy Tales (Kindle in Motion) | This was more of an impulse buy because it includes gifs (for a lack of better word) and it was only $.99. The art is gorgeous and I had so much fun read this. I would also like to note that if you know the Brother’s Grimm, you know their stories can be fairly disturbing or gruesome. However, the stories included are pretty censored, so kids might enjoy this book as well (with parental guidance). Here’s the link if interested.
- The Brother’s Grimm: Illuminated Fairy Tales (Kindle in Motion)
- Dracula (Kindle in Motion) – Bram Stoker | This one is similar to the Brother’s Grimm in terms of including moving artwork as you read. I’m pretty excited for this one.
That’s all I managed to read this month. Hopefully next month will be better 😊
