That's a Wrap: July through September 2016

... And I thought I'd get a lot of reading done this summer. Okay, but to be fair, I did take extra courses during the course of the two months, and had a job. Anyways, I've read a total of eight books this quarter, which I supposed isn't terrible, but I really could have done better.

There's always the next quarter, though I'm genuinely concerned that I won't finish my reading challenge this year :(

Unite Me
★★★☆☆
This compiles two novellas that accompany the Juliette Chronicles. It was a nice, quick read.

Be With Me
★★★★☆
I am super in love with all of J. Lynn's characters. If you enjoy reading new adult romance, I cannot recommend J. Lynn enough!

The Summer that Melted Everything
★★★★★
An excellent, thought-provoking read.

Ouran Host Club, Vol. 1
★★★★☆
A cute, fun romantic manga! I've watched the anime, and I've heard that the manga goes more in depth with the plot as well as characters, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

A Solitary Romance
★☆☆☆☆
Definitely not my favourite romance. :(

Kings or Pawns
★★★★★
A fantastic political fantasy.

Library of Souls
★★★★★
The conclusion to the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. I think this book packs a lot more action and sustenance than the first two installments, thus wrapping up the series memorably. I know some people feel like the story drags on a bit in the beginning, but overall, I really enjoyed this journey with the peculiar children.

The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories by Tim Burton
★★★★★
An anthology of deliciously dark poems and short stories. It was a quick read that made me laugh out loud (and creep the hell out of my sister).

And that's a wrap for July to September! I can't believe the year's almost over. ;O
