Top Reads Of July // On the road again // Recap

by - August 11, 2017

Hey, It's Skye here and I am back from my blogging 'detour' with my Top Reads of the month! 

1. Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
I loved this book soo much! The plot, the world-building, the characters, EVERYTHING. This is a book that needs to be added to your TBR and I will convince you even more with the review that is coming out soon.

2. The Happiness Index by Julie Israel
It seems July has thrown all the best books at my face screaming "READ THEM NOW READ THEM ALL BEFORE ITS TOO LATE" And I obliged. And I found Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index. Like Letters to the Lost, It has fantastic characters and plot and is extremely emotional so buy yourself some tissues.

3. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Udidaslbclsv saihlcb asfuclahv Too amazing for words. I'm gonna leave now before I try to express my loaf* for this book.
*Yes loaf. DO you have a problem with loaves? If you do then get outta here boi.

4. We were Liars by E.Lockhart
When I first started this book I thought it was a bit boring and I didn't get the fuss about it. As the plot unravels it gets a lot more depth and is so heartbreaking and spoilers right here right now in white: I just don't understand why she slit her wrists before the accident and WHY ARE THE LIARS DEAD I LOAF GAT WHY IS HE DEAD WHY DID THEY START A FIRE THE EGGS I DONT WANT THEM TO DIE. 
Anyone who read that will probably not understand my nonsensical rant but it's okay, It's not you, it's me. I am the one who publishes these nonsensical rants.*
*Don't worry about me. I just have a severe case of fangirl. Wait! Don't run away! It's not contagious! I promise!

5. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield
Let's give Mr. Westerfield a round of applause for this one. It ticks all the boxes, characters, world building, plot. TICK TICK TICK BOOM.*
*That boom was from the applause. Not a bomb.

6. The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfield
Hello, again Scott! Weren't you above with Afterworlds? I think this series deserves an even BIGGER round of applause, don't you?

7. You're Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner
Hey, look at that! Another box ticker that one! But honestly, Julia is a such a strong, fabulous female lead. Another book to consider on your TBR.

8. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif by Rick Riordan
It still stuns me that I haven't read Percy Jackson until now. It stuns me. It has been on my TBR for such a looonnnnnngggg time I've almost forgotten about it. That sentence actually saddens me. I FORGOT ABOUT A BOOK.
