August Wrap Up [2017]

Copia de Copia de SPRINGTIME (1)

Hi guys, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, today I bring you my August Wrap Up, where I tell you about the books I read during the month.
I’ve had a great month of readings, I’ve been able to read 6 books and 1 Sneak Peek from the first chapters of another one. I’m very happy for the amount, but also because I’ve discovered incredible stories, magical and emotional

I had the goal to read as many ARCs as possible this month and I think I have done a good job because of the books I’ve read 5 are ARCs which is great! YAY!.

In addition to the readings this month, I’ve also had a beautiful gift from all of you and I’ve reached the 1000 followers in my blog and from this small space in the world I’m eternally grateful for all the support, you guys. I’ve already told you everything I feel in my post about it, but I don’t want to stop thanking you all, it means a lot, besides, we’re 1071 now!!. How incredible is that ?

I really want to show you my readings and share a small summary of my thoughts about them, so without further ado let’s start!



ARCs of the Month

28078791

I really enjoyed this reading, in fact I’ve enjoyed more than I thought I would. It’s a book full of magic, of mystery and contains a great sisterhood bond. The plot in general is very original and, although in the beginning is a bit slow, after some pages the pace is accelerated and you’ll find yourself more hooked as you go deeper into it.
I recommend it if you want an unique and miterious plot, with double POVs, with jumps in the time from the future to the present (which I love), also I repeat, the sisterhood between the characters is very nice to read and sure you’ll enjoy it.

Another great book!, which has made me feel a bit nostalgic, because has reminded me a lot of The Raven Boys, which was incredible.
This book has a strong mystery vibe just like the previous book, but this is characterized more for its friendship and relationships between characters, which are alot, I have to confess I was a little scared by all those names and all their personalities, it was hard for me, I feel that I don’t get to know them all so deeply, even so, it’s a worth reading book, it’s so magical, the revelations are really good and I believe that you have to enter into it without knowing too much, in this way will surprise you even more. Plus: It contains characters from the LGBT+ community, which was a very pleasant surprise since I had no idea. In short if you like magical realism, you should give it a try

I think I’ve spoken about 5000 times around these books because they’re so incredible, I love them. In this duology we follow the many reincarnations of an adorable puppy, which you’ll loved, without doubt. It’s an emotional story full of feelings, of discovery, there are many things that you ask yourself after reading these books, also if you have dogs, you’ll love them and you will respect them even more. You’ll cry, I can assure you, but even so, it’s so worth it, I can’t stop recommending these books to everyone, they will stay with you forever. And you’ll see that the search that this little dog to discover his purpose in life, will reach your heart

A Dog’s Journey (A Dog’s Purpose #2) by W. Bruce Cameron (4.5/5 Stars) REVIEW HERE

Oh this book was problematic, what the book promise was a hard survival story on a desert island, where many secrets would be revealed and it had that, and it was a great aspect, I must say that the writing style is very good as well and I would read something else by the author. Even so, I had a serious problem and it was the relationship between the sisters Emma and Henri who are the central characters in the plot, this relationship is unhealthy, where one of the sisters (Henri) is always mistreating psychologically to the other and humiliating her, while the other (Emma), despite her growth during the book, let her sister repeatedly treat her like trash, while she justifies all her actions and I could see how Emma has a very weird obssesion with her sister where she can’t think for herself and it was simply quite sad. Even when I’ve enjoy some aspect also was hard to pick the rating, but ended up raising the note because I really enjoyed the ending and I thought it was successful.

A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor (3/5 Stars) REVIEW HERE


35903603

I’ve been provided with this Preview Expert of the first 6 chapters of the book in exchange for an honest review, via Netgalley and Macmillan Children’s Books to which I’m very grateful about it.

I don’t want to give it any rating yet, until I read the entire book, which I’m more than sure that I want to read it when the full book comes out, I’ll have to wait alot, SO UNFAIR!
What I’ve read I LOVED IT, it’s a strong plot, a brillant idea in a fantasy world full of diversity, unique characters and magic. I’M IN!.
I feel that I’ve never read anything similar for which I’m super excited

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi



Not an ARC lol

10929432

Well yes, impressively this is the only book I’ve read that is not an ARC, which is quite amazing !. Ok, it’s my first book by Victoria Schwab which I had super excited about, and I’ve enjoyed it !, it’s a very original book, the idea is incredibly creative and well told, I think I understand the hype around this author, even so, I recognize that is not the best book that I’ve read in the month, but I also know that it is not one of her most popular books and it’s why I wanted to start with it. Anyway, I have interested enough to want to continue with the second one, there is still so much I want to know about the plot and the characters, I highly recommend it if you want to read something unique and different, it’s categorized as a horror book, but I I don’t think it is, I think it’s more a dark mystery book. The characters are incredible, so diverse and real, I loved them, from the main character to the secondary are interesting, so super excited to continue with the second one

  1. Hi!! Good job on getting through your ARCs this month! A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey sound like very interesting books that I might consider reading (since I have a dog and I love him to bits!) I am also curious about The Archived, since I love Victoria Schwab’s other books (This Savage Song and the Shades of Magic series) and this one sounds different. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  2. Oh my gosh, I didn’t realise A Dog’s Purpose was a book before it was made into a film. I’ve not seen it yet but I’ve heard really good things about it. I’ve also been seeing a lot of good things about The Spellbook of Lost and Found, which I am now super excited to read.

  4. You really had a great reading month! Verity Of Monsters is the only series I’ve read by V.E. Schwab. After finishing ADSOM, I would definitely pick up Archived. Anyways, I hope you have an awesome September and happy reading! πŸ™‚

  5. You had a good reading month; that’s awesome. I’ll have my August Wrap Up post up on Friday, but I think my favorite read of August was probably Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur…or my reread of Matilda by Roald Dahl. Then again, I’m reading a couple books at the moment so we’ll see if that changes before the month ends.
