June 2016 Wrap Up

Brunch

This month has been a highly successful reading month and it has also been the highest month of views and visitors. So thank you so much everyone who follows me and reads my content!

This month I read 9 books and also received quite a few review copies.


So first up I received these books to review:

   

I really enjoyed just a few inches, and gave it a 4.5 out of 5 stars. You can click on my review for it here

Rarity from the Hollow was an interesting book about child abuse and I gave it a 3.5 star rating, my review here

I had the pleasure working with Lora Richardson on her second novel, and I really liked it! Such a relateable contemporary and i gave it 4.5 stars, my review here

I also read the Reflections of Snow White, anything to do with fairy tales I’m in! I also gave this book 3.5 stars. My review can be found here


I finally read this beauty!

I loved it so much and gave it 5 stars! My favorite read of this month for sure! My review can be found here. The feels were really just YES in this book.


I also read the Glittering Court and Water’s Wrath

 

There’s no way to put this gently but…I despised the Glittering Court. The protagonist basically escapes an arranged marriage only to join the Glittering Court to marry a random stranger who pays to marry her!? I rated it 1 out of 5 stars on goodreads

Water’s Wrath is the 4th Air Awakens book and it was good! 4 out of 5 stars


And finally I read the Deal, a book I’ve been seeing everywhere, and the highly anticipated the Rose and the Dagger

 

The Deal was everything I thought it would be! 5 stars for sure and highly entertaining and fun.

Okay so the Rose and the Dagger had a lot of expectations placed upon it by me because I absolutely loved the Wrath and the Dawn. To put it simply, this book bored me. It didn’t necessarily fall short but it was lacking that emotion that I felt with the Wrath and the Dawn. So 3.5 stars it is. The only emotion I had while reading his was when Isra’s love died and when Despina revealed her secret.


What books did you read this month!? Did we read any of the same ones?

Stay awesome Sassenachs!-Calliope Fraser

    I read Just a Few Inches as well and I really liked it. It was so interesting and different. I still need to read A Court of Mist and Fury! Hopefully soon! 🙂 I’m kind of nervous to read The Rose & the Dagger, because I honestly didn’t really like The Wrath and the Dawn all that much.

    I am not familiar with any of these. I love your summations of them. I am going to have to take a look at them. I really want to read Rose and Dagger (or that series I should say). I’ve heard nothing but good things. 🙂

    So glad to hear you had a very successful blogging month, it’s always a nice surprise to get so many views and visitors. I’ve had The Glittering Court on my TBR, but I’ve heard some very unflattering things about it, so I’ll probably skip it. Hope your July is wonderful!

    I DNFed The Glittering Court a couple of weeks ago and completely agree with your comments! The premise just doesn’t make a lot of logical sense, and I found Adelaide — is that her name? — just so unlikeable.

    Sorry to hear that TRATD disappointed you. I enjoyed it, but it’s not as good as TWATD either in my opinion.

    Oh my, that Glittering Court rating is very… yikes, to say the least. I actually won a copy of it and I had high hopes for it, but maybe I’ll put it off for a while. I’m excited to continue with the Air Awakens series! I only read the first book but it’s very promising and the covers are just so gorgeous. Here’s to a good July!

    Jess @ POB!
