Celebrating the 4th of July in Rome!
Not a bad month considering the craziness going on around here. Most of these books were ones I started in June and finished in July. Here's the list:
The Duff by Kody Keplinger: Bianca is hurting, so she uses Wesley as her distraction.
Animal Farm by George Orwell: What happens when animals take over the farm and become human like? Nothing too good, that's for sure.
This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner: A rebel and a soldier team up to solve the mystery of their world and stop a war.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare: Tessa is wanted by an evil Master for her shape shifting powers and the rest of the Shadow Hunters must thwart this plan.
Elevated by Elana Johnson: What happens when you get stuck in a elevator with the guy you've been avoiding for months? A massive catharsis that's what!
Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch: Spring has taken over Winter and all the Winterians want is their kingdom back and their young king on the throne once again.
American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang: A young Chinese American boy comes to terms with his heritage with the help of an old ancient legend.
Favorites of the month: This Shattered World, Elevated and American Born Chinese. Reviews on those last two coming soon.
Plans for August:
- Utah Book Month! (There'll be more detailed post on what I hope to read coming soon.)
- Re-read Not in the Script for book club and our Utah Book Month Read Along
- Read Eleanor by Johnny Worthen
- Read How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr
I can't wait to get started... which is why I didn't! LOL!
