May, June and July 2012 Round-Up

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

MAY

Struck (Struck, #1)  Black Heart Blue  Fall for Anything

1. Black Heart Blue by Louisa Reid
2. Struck by Jennifer Bosworth
3. The Gathering Dark by Leigh Bardugo
4. Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers

Only four that month! This was my first exam month though, so that's why... Now, onto June! 

JUNE

The Glimpse  Emma Hearts LA  The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2)

1. The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead
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
6. Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles

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

Starcrossed  Dreamless (Starcrossed, #2)  Debutantes

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
Average number of pages per book: 328

Number of pages read in June: 2188
Average number of pages per book: 365

Number of pages read in July: 2053
Average number of pages per book: 411

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

May: THE GATHERING DARK by Leigh Bardugo
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

Synopsis from Goodreads:Growing up in her sleepy Cornish village dreaming of being a writer, sixteen-year-old Lou has always wondered about the grand Cardew house which has stood empty for years. And when the owners arrive for the summer - a handsome, dashing brother and sister - Lou is quite swept off her feet and into a world of moonlit cocktail parties and glamour beyond her wildest dreams.

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising... 



Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!

Synopsis from Goodreads:Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in the right direction. But with social media…

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files!


I'm going to try and keep it non-spoilery but be cautious if you've only read Illuminae and/or Gemina
THE FACTS: Series title: The Illuminae Files
Series authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Rock the Boat
Series completion date: 13th March, 2018

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results…
