Finally I am getting back into reading for pleasure! Now that my first summer class is over I feel like I can finally relax and dive back into some fictional worlds.
In June I read two books for summer class. The Games was a pretty boring history of the Olympics, but Triumph was a much more interesting biography on Jesse Owens. It was a short and easy read.
This month I also finally read Tower of Dawn. I really enjoyed it, but it wasn’t spectacular like Empire of Storms. However, I did love the characters and I can’t wait to see more of them in Kingdom of Ash.
Then, Legendary finally came out! I reread Caraval in preparation and then reread Legendary once my copy arrived in the mail. It was even better the second time around because I could pick up on all the little details that I didn’t notice the first time.
Finally, I read an e-arc of Mirage, which completely blew me away! I did not expect to like it as much as I did, but it has ended up being one of my favorite books of the year!
