Hello and Welcome to a very late Mid Year Wrap Up. As it stands I’ve read fourteen and a half books of my fifty book total for the year. I’ve read a couple of five stars and there was a DNF as well that’s not mentioned, plus six rereads. So, let’s begin.
Red, White and Royal Blue Casey Mcquinston
This was my first read of 2021, and I gave it 4.5 stars. Fantastic Read. Highly recommend. Check out my review here
Binti – Nnedi Okorafor
My first afrofuturist book and it was amazing. I gave this 4 Stars. Check out my review here
The Cruel Prince – Holly Black
This one was a reread, I gave it a solid four stars just like the first time I read it. I still think Locke is an arsehole. Check out my review here
The Lost Sisters – Holly Black
This is the little novella set between The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King. It’s completely in Taryn’s perspective and I can honestly tell you I hate that character with a passion only rivaled by my hate for Locke. Two stars, nothing wrong with the writing I just didn’t understand the point of the novella. It didn’t move the story along it was just Taryn whining.
Obsidian – Jennifer L Armentrout
This was a reread and it was the second time reading about Daemon Black. Sexy little Alien. I do enjoy Jennifer L Armentrout’s writing. I truly lost myself in the world of the Luxen. As It stands I haven’t continued on with the series but perhaps in a couple of weeks. Four Stars
To Kill a Kingdom – Alexandra Christo
This was another reread, I enjoyed reading about the siren’s again. That’s all I can really say. 3.5 Stars. Check out my review here
Shadow and Bone – Leigh Bardugo
This was a special read for me, I read this book so I could watch the Netflix series, and then I never watched the series. I’m not the smartest. I did enjoy the book though, it was a five star book for me. I should have immediately carried on the Siege and Storm but I didn’t and that is a massive regret of mine.
Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi
This was another five star read for me. This book was incredible. I genuinely really enjoyed reading about Juliette and Adam. I hope to continue on with Unravel me as soon as I can.
Heart Stopper Volume 1- 4 – Alice Oseman
This is without a doubt my favourite graphic novel series. I love it. I love Charlie. I love Nick. I love them so much. Every single one is five stars. All of them. Alice Oseman, Take my money!!
Ice Planet Barbarians – Ruby Dixon
This was a weird read for me. First adult book in a while. Spicy blue alien smut. Need I say more? Three stars. Smut was very well written, plot was alright. Enjoyable.
Once Upon a Royal One Night Stand – Aria May
This book wasn’t my favourite. I had higher hopes going in that I should have had. The Prince was irritating. The main character was a complete Mary Sue and I deeply despised how they portrayed the Royal Family. Sorry to anyone that enjoyed it but, it wasn’t for me. Two stars.
Barbarian Alien – Ruby Dixon
This is the one that doesn’t 100% count because I am only 69% of the way through this book so I haven’t finished yet. I don’t know if I prefer Liz to Georgie but I’ll know soon enough but I think this book is heading towards a 3 star rating
And Finally, the book I DNF’d
Royally Lost – Angie Stanton
Back in January I tried to read this book but I couldn’t get past 30%. The main character whined too much, the love interest was bland and predictable and there was too much instalove. It’s just not for me.
So, What have you read these last six months?
