Oh my, what a month! I managed to finish 21 books (!!!), all while being in a total reading slump for half of the month. That’s 6219 pages. Woah!
However, I haven’t been too active on here and I’m not sure whether that will change soon, because starting next week, I will be quite busy, but… yeah. We’ll see.
Anyway, here are the books:
Mimic Royal Princess by Utako Yukihiro, Volumes 1-4
I bought these a while ago, but only now managed to actually read them. The story is really interesting and the artwork is great!
Blink Of Time by Rainer Wekwerth
The concept was reaaally interesting, but the actual book was not. It had a lot of potential, but did not use any of it. Also, if I have to read about the male main character’s green eyes for one more time, I’m gonna scream.
XX Me! by Ema Toyama, Volumes 18-19
I loved the ending of this wonderful shojo manga! If you like romance, you definitely have to read this!
Vanilla Fiction by Megumi Osuga, Volume 8
Yeah, well… I have no idea what was going on in this final volume of the series. Like, no idea at all. I just know that I did not like it as much as the other books in the series, but it wasn’t too bad,
No. 6 by Atsuko Asano & Hinoki Kino, Volumes 4-7
I love this manga! It had such an interesting and rich world and the characters are even more awesome!
A Conjuring Of Light by V. E. Schwab
The final book of the Shades of Magic trilogy was soooo good!!! However, it did not reach the awesomeness of A Gathering Of Shadows for me.
You can find my review for it here.
Die Drachenkämpferin – Im Auftrag des Magiers by Licia Troisi
I loved this when I was younger, but now it just isn’t my thing anymore. I still adore the characters, but the writing is rather disappointing.
Im Zeichen des Ypsilon by Dimitri Clou
A very imaginative book! However, I would have had to be younger to really enjoy this.
Black Bullet (Novel) by Shiden Kanzaki
The story is ok, but the writing was awful. However, I really enjoyed it??? It was just getting more and more ridiculous.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
I had really high hopes for this one, but it just wasn’t for me. At least the design was reaaaaaally beautiful.
Guardian by Alex London
I loved the first book of this series, and while the second one wasn’t as good, it was still really interesting. I just missed really missed one of the old characters…
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
I did not really expect much from this, just a short and quick read, but I ended up really adoring it! I have heard the second book in the series isn’t as good, but I still really want it though… As in, now.
Endgame – Die Entscheidung by James Frey
I finally finished this series! The last book wanted to do a lot, but it actually rushed through the most interesting parts, so I did not like it as much as the rest of the series.
Willful Machines by Tim Floreen
The beginning was really slow and I struggled a lot to get through it, but the second half was really awesome! I also really adore the interesting world-building and hope for a sequel or a companion novel. Only the romance was a bit rushed (and definitely insta-love).
Woah, I need to read less, this took me ages to write…
Just kidding 🙂
What were your favorite books of the month?
Have you read any of these? I would love to hear from you!
