Summertime Madness (TBC Into Fall)

Before I go into a spiral of examining how much/little I’ve read this summer, I must apologize for the lack of proper book reviews and recommendations this month on my part. The thesis has kept me busy. September, I promise, will be much more active.

Now, for a review of all the things I said I’d read when I was young and foolish summer was beginning and everything looked hopeful and shiny:

  1. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray (Didn’t love it as much as I loved The Diviners but Libba Bray’s not-so-good is still very, very good.)
  2. Rebel Angels by Libba Bray
  3. The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
  4. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray (Struck out halway through … because I am only halfway through this one.)
  5. Going Bovine by Libba Bray
  6. The Demon’s Lexicon trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan (Enjoyed it! I mean, I did do a huge post on it. But again, not as much as I enjoyed The Lynburn Legacy.)
  7. Spiritwalker trilogy by Kate Elliott (I started reading Cold Magic. I love it!)
  8. The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson
  9. Legend trilogy by Marie Lu
  10. Kingdom of Xia duology by Cindy Pon
  11. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
  12. Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, and Brooke Allen
  13. The Worn Archive edited by Serah-Marie McMohan

Basically, I veered from the list completely and here is what I ended up actually reading:

Out of these, I think I didn’t enjoy only 2 of them.

In the end, I have come to learn two things about myself:

  1. I really do love making plans.
  2. And then before you know it I’m all, “Plan? What plan?”

So, what did you guys read this summer?
