July Wrap Up

July is over and I read quite a bit this month, so let’s recap what I read (click here to see the TBR).

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

I really liked this book, as I found that while the plot was easy to follow and was predictable (it is a retelling of the Little Mermaid) the details of this story were totally captivating and made for a very pleasant read.

This dark world highlights the many floors in our society while still being a very engaging story. It was 100% worth being sunburnt for!

The sequel to the previous book, this installment lacks some of the social commentary of the previous but rounds off the story nicely.

Heartstream by Tom Pollock

Heartstream by Tom Pollock

A page turning thriller showing both sides of the story when a girl comes home from her mother’s funeral to find a bomber at her house. It produced many gasps and squeals and one across-the-room-book-throwing.

5 stars

I Am Not A Number by Lisa Heathfield

I Am Not A Number by Lisa Heathfield

A horrifying story that cautions against repeating history, especially in our current political climate. A must read for those scared by today’s politics.
