Life Update + August/September Wrap-Up!

Monthly wrap up

Hey guys!! I haven’t been around too much lately. I wanted to make a post to apologize about that. 

I started mortuary school in August! It’s been so fun, but it is a lot more work than I thought it would be. I am learning so many fascinating things! For the first time in my entire life I feel like I’ve found a place that I truly belong in. I’ve met some of the most amazing people. People who get my sense of humor! It’s amazing! It is very difficult program though and I hardly have time to read, let alone blog. But I’m still trying my hardest to put out content!!

Okay! Let’s move on to the wrap-up!! I have only read a handful of books since school started, which is disappointed but to be expected.

Favorite reads from August and September:

34499221 37919456 33385229

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo– ★★★★★ Super amazing siren/pirate love story. I wish I could read it again for the first time! You can find my full review here.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi– ★★★★★ An extremely unique fantasy with African influences. Beautifully strong female characters and a wonderful enemy to lovers romance. Full review to come!

They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera– ★★★★★ A heart-wrenching story that made me think and ponder life. A cute but devastating m/m romance. Full review can be found here.

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan– ★★★★★ A fantasy that has Asian influences and a f/f romance that made my heart melt. Full review can be found here.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – ★★★★ A story that parallels many stories that sparked the black lives matter movement. Intensely heartbreaking and beautiful. I cannot wait for the movie!

The Perfect Friend by Barbara Copperthwaite– ★★★★ A roller coaster of a thriller that had me guessing so much! It kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page! I was too afraid of spoilers to write a full review!

Disappointing reads for August and September:

A Darker Shade final for Irene 7324340

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab– ★★.5 This was one of the most disappointing reads ever. I wanted to love it SO much because everyone else did. Sadly, it just wasn’t that appealing to me. You can find my full review here.

Summer’s Child by Diane Chamberlain– ★★ This is a mystery style women’s lit book. I had expected a better book since I have loved all of Chamberlain’s other books. It was pretty disappointing though. You can find my full review here.

I really appreciate you guys for sticking by me while I’ve been back at school. My stats have dropped a little, but considering I have no time to blog hop or interact in the bookish community, it’s not bad at all! You guys are loyal and I love that! ❤

  1. I can’t wait to read Girls of Paper and Fire!! Though my only concern is how short it is…. I like my fantasy to be over 350-400 pages, but I’ve heard almost nothing but good things regardless.

  2. I know what you mean about not having enough time for reading and blogging now school has started. I started in September and only managed to read two books last month! I’m currently reading Children of Blood and Bone and absolutely loving it. I can’t wait to read your review on it when you get the chance to write it, but no pressure at all 💜

  3. Yesss I loved To Kill a Kingdom and They Both Die At The End! They definitely make it into my top reads of 2018! I can’t wait to read The Hate U Give, Children of Blood and Bone, and Girls of Paper and Fire!
