I've been a bad blogger, everybody, I know... But it's August now, it's the holidays, and I want to get back into blogging properly! So here is a round-up of everything I've read since I last did one of these round-ups... ;P

2. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
3. The Glimpse by Claire Merle
4. Devilish by Maureen Johnson
5. Emma Hearts LA by Keris Stainton

But I guess I can't use exams as an excuse... As in June I had three compared to the one I had in May and still read a whole two more books! Lastly, July! 

JULY

1. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (reread)
2. Dreamless by Josephine Angelini
3. Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler
4. Debutantes by Cora Harrison
5. Endlessly by Kiersten White

So July wasn't that great either... Oh well! School's over, and I'm going on holiday for two weeks and am planning to do nothing but read and watch Doctor Who so I should get lots read in August, hopefully! 

Oh my goodness, next is my monthly maths... 

Number of pages read in May: 1311

Well that was fun... ;P So my favourite books of these months were:

June: SECOND CHANCE SUMMER by Morgan Matson
July: ENDLESSLY by Kiersten White

The Gathering Dark  Second Chance Summer  Endlessly (Paranormalcy, #3)


And these are the books I'm most looking forward to reading in August: 

Foretold (The Demon Trappers, #4)  Speechless  Amy & Roger's Epic Detour

And I'm not going to count up all the comments... I can't be bothered and I'm tired ;P Also decided to put some new releases in August at the bottom so that you can see what is coming out instead of just a whole post on it because they take AGES. So sorry for lots to read but I hope it's interesting and a break from just the reviews that I've been posting the last couple of months or so! I love you guys for sticking with me, if you're still here, you are officially AWESOME. And now, with those new releases! 

Rift  Debutantes  Foretold (The Demon Trappers, #4)
Endlessly (Paranormalcy, #3)  Pushing the Limits  Gods And Warriors (Gods And Warriors, #1)
  Losing Lila (Lila, #2)  Everneath

Book Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Title: The Perks of Being a Wallflower  Author: Stephen Chbosky
Series: Standalone
Pages: 213
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Publication: 30th August 2012 (reprint)
Source: Publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. the world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
My Thoughts:
So many people have been telling me to read Perks for about a year now, and with the movie coming up soon, I thought it was finally time. I mean, it looked quite good, and you have to read the book before the film, right?! Anyway, I decided I would read it on holiday when I had nothing else to do so I could read it all at once, and as it's really not very long this was pretty easy. While it didn't quite live up to my (probably too high) expectations…

Book Review: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Title: Moxie Author: Jennifer Mathieu
Series: n/a
Pages: 340
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Date of Publication: 21st September 2017
Source: borrowed from Reading to Recover
Synopsis from Goodreads:
It's time to fight like a girl!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv's mum was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the '90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother's past and creates Moxie, a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She's just blowing off steam, but other girls respond and spread the Moxie message. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realises that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
