♡ Hi Lovelies! ♡
August was a bit of a slower month for me. I did however, found many books I really enjoyed! I managed to also get a few ARCs and a bunch of books I am hoping to read before 2018 ends. Scroll down to see my August reads, and for a full review, click the links!
My August Reads:
Wonder Woman: Her Greatest Battles by various (paperback) – ★★★
This is my first graphic novel, and I did enjoy the art in it! This book contains the greatest battles of Wonder Woman. It is a compilation of seven comic book scenes, all sharing a different battle of Wonder Woman, and a different kind of art.
Ignite (Midnight Fire #1) by Kaitlyn Davis (ebook) – ★★★★
Overall, it was a great refreshing read, and I look forward to reading the rest of the series. If you love vampire high-school stories, women that discover they have powers, a lot of forbidden love and paranormal fantasy – you will really enjoy this book. Solid 4 stars from me!
Sleep, Merel, Sleep by Silke Stein (paperback) – ★★★★
This is a story about a little girl called Merel. This is also a story about how Merel one day can’t sleep. This story also happens to be one of the most adorable middle grade stories that I have ever read. Silke Stein did an amazing job in portraying a little girl, and creating a magical world that we see through her eyes.
I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You (Gallagher Girls #1) by Ally Carter (paperbook) – ★★★★★
If you are looking for a refreshing Young-Adult read, with college unlike any other – this is the perfect book for you. I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You is the first book from the Gallagher Girl series, where we meet girls that go to a school for spies, and nobody except them, knows it.
Never Forgotten (Never Forgotten #1) by Kelly Risser (ebook) – ★★★★★
How can one day go so very wrong? One minute Meara Quinn is making plans for how she will spend the Summer before her senior year and the next she’s finding out that her mother’s cancer has returned and they are moving away from the only home she’s ever known.
I really enjoyed this book – maybe I enjoyed it the most from all the other Young-Adult paranormal books I’ve read. It was a great first beginning to a series, and I can’t wait to dig in the rest of the series.
LifeShift by Michael Kott (paperback) – ★★★★
This is an amazing story – a fiction fantasy that gathered Greek Mythology characters and created something entirely new. I enjoyed it a lot and I can’t wait for the next book of the series to come out. This book opens up a great discussion about people that can be reborn and remember their past.
Awakened (Vampire Awakenings #1) by Brenda K. Davies (ebook) – ★★
Awakened is the first book from the Vampire Awakening Series and it is written by USA Today bestselling author Brenda K. Davies. This is a book where a guy meets a girl. Girl has a secret and tells it on their first date. Boy is a vampire, but we are 80% in the book until it’s mentioned (even though title clearly states it, and you keep expecting it to happen). When secret is told – boy gives girl a choice to escape. Girls chooses to stay, and boy becomes possessive because he wants her too much. Then he does something to her, kind of against her will. And then they live happily ever after.
