I can’t believe June’s already over!
This month has gone incredibly fast: I mean what with all of the bookish events being announced this month that I have to prepare for I really did have a nice month planning out the bookish events I’ll be going to for the next few months.
Books I Read:
Obviously this book has gotten a lot of hype since the Oscar-winning film came out last year. I put off reading this book for ages for the mere reason that I was worried the hype was more about the movie and therefore the book would disappointing. I was very happy to find that I actually did like this book and gave it a four stars!
I read this book for my ‘Books Amino’ YA book club; luckily none of us had started this very highly acclaimed series and I absolutely fell in love with this book. The writing, characters and plot are all phenomenal and earned the 5 stars gave this book.
This book has gotten itself very mixed reviews since it’s release in late May and unfortunately I wasn’t on the completely positive side of those reviews. I didn’t really like this book as an ending to a trilogy I really liked and felt that it could have been adapted much more upon. I ended up giving this book 3 stars just because the last few chapters were quite good.
I have so much to say about this book but most of that is in my review. This book was complete and utter perfection; I loved it! Victoria Schwab was already one of my favourite authors and this book lived up to her beautifully amazing writing. (5 stars all the way.)
I also read this as part of my Books Amino club although I admit I started it a bit early as we were supposed to start this next month but I just couldn’t wait! I did love the character arcs and development in this book – especially surrounding Ronan and Adam. But I did give it a four stars just because I didn’t think it was as amazing as the first.
