Monthly Wrap Ups

August Wrap-Up // New favorite book, and a month full of bookish discussions!

Hey Guys!

Welcome back to a Monthly Wrap-Up! We have officially reached the end of summer. I’m sad to see it go but excited to see what will come next! I hope everyone had a fantastic August!

In August, I read three books in total. A little less than usual, but I’m glad that I read more than one book. All of them were above three stars which I was happy about!

Let’s get started!

Books I read in August

Ace of Spades:

This has become one of my all-time favorite books. Everything was perfect, and if you haven’t read this book, please do!

Our two main characters, Devon and Chiamaka, are some of the most relatable characters. You want to help them from being the hateful actions by Aces. 

The mystery behind Aces is so compelling, and you won’t be able to stop reading. It was intricately twisted, and once everything is revealed, you’ll be shocked in a state of horror. (5 Stars)

Before We Were Blue:

I had signed up for a book tour for this book through TBR and Beyond Tours, not expecting to get it. I had signed up for tours with TBR and Beyond Tours before but had never gotten one. Until now. If you don’t get picked for a tour when you sign up, don’t get discouraged! You’ll get one!

Overall, I enjoyed this book. Schwartz did a brilliant job portraying eating disorders and didn’t try to add any glamorization. We follow Rowan and Shoshana on their healing journey and the struggles they encounter along the way.

This book also features a reality tv subplot which was an original idea, and I liked how the author was not afraid to shy away from showing the harsh realities of fame. This book also has asexual representation, which is great since many YA books don’t! (3.5 Stars)

The Bones of Ruin:

I was on a book tour for Turn the Pages Tour, which I had an amazing time on!

I enjoyed the main character, Iris, and the challenges she had to face throughout the story. I found her to be a mary sue character, but otherwise, I liked the mystery she had to discover who she truly is.

This book also had major squad goals vibes, and I loved reading the bickering between all of them. It had me laughing so much and supporting them all the time.

There was a type of love triangle in this book. What I mean by type is…there was a love square. I only found one of the love interests that would work out and thought all the other love interests were unnecessary. (3 Stars)
