Here’s what I read in the month of July!
Love at Fourteen, Vol. 3 by Fuka Mizutani: 4/5 stars. I don’t think I’ll be continuing on with this series. The progression of the plot is a bit too slow for me.
Drama by Raina Telgemeier: 5/5 stars. I love these easy to read middle school aged graphic novels and this one was just so adorable!
Resistance: Book 1 by Carla Jablonski and Leland Purvis: 3/5 stars. I think this was a little young for me, but the story was good. Didn’t like the drawing style too much.
Poldark by Winston Graham (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! This was a great start to the series!
Demelza by Winston Graham (REVIEW): 5/5 stars and of course this was an excellent follow up!
Smile by Raina Telgemeier: 5/5 stars! Another cute novel from Ms. Telgemeier. I really enjoy her graphic novels even though they are a little below my age range
Sisters by Raina Telgemeier: 5/5 stars! This was a companion novel of sorts to the first one but they can be read in any order. Super cute as well!
Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee (REVIEW): 4/5 stars. Just read the review. I can’t do it justice here.
Deadman Wonderland, Vol. 1 by Jinsei Kataoka: 4/5 stars. I’m always on the hunt for new manga series’ to try and this one came up on my radar. It’s okay but we’ll see how the next few go
The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan (REVIEW): 2/5 stars. I just couldn’t finish this one, despite how much I liked part 1
Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! This is definitely going down as one of my favorite graphic novels of the year!
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler & illustrated by Maira Kalman: 4/5 stars. I really liked some of the quotes in this and the plot, but I think the way it was written just wasn’t for me
Death Note, Vol. 1 by Tsugumi Ohba: 4/5 stars. I need to get further in the series I think before really figuring out if I like this or not.
In August I want to read:
A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
Battle Royale, Vol. 1 by Koushun Takami and Masayuki Taguchi
The Knockoff by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
