End of Summer Recap Tag

With summer ending in a few days, I thought I’d take part in the End of Summer Recap tag which was created by Faith at BookSelf. I first saw it over at Kristin Kraves Books. My answers will only include books I read between 21st June and 23rd September.

Which book can you not stop thinking about?

Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

With so much of the news being awful, Red, White & Royal Blue provided a much-needed escape into an alternate timeline I wish we were living, Plus it’s just the cutest.

Which book would you rather not have read?

Imaginary Friend was 720 pages that I really would rather not have read. I didn’t connect with the story and felt it needed serious editing. As an atheist, I also felt a lot of the intended power behind the story was lost for me. 

What genre did you read the most?

Fantasy was definitely my most-read genre. Out of the 53 books I read, 13 were YA fantasy, 12 were adult fantasy, and 2 were children’s fantasy. 

What book surprised you the most?

For some reason, I wasn’t that bothered about reading Sanctuary. However, the publisher sent me a finished copy and I started reading it. After about 50 pages I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. It ended up being a 5-star read for me.

Which book disappointed you the most?

The hype around Carry On is still huge so I think I went into this with too high expectations. It was just okay and nothing original but I did love SnowBaz.

What was your favourite cover?

It has to be Gods of Jade and Shadow, which was designed by Daniel Pelavin. I love the colours, style and design. Plus it was a 5-star read.

What was your favourite summer release?

I have two favourite summer releases: The Ten Thousand Doors of January and Bloodchild. They were incredible reads and I can’t stop thinking about them so I hope to reread both soon.

What book did you plan on reading but never got around to?

I always seem to have a Cassandra Clare book lying on my TBR pile and this time it’s Lady MidnightFingers crossed I can finish this series before the end of the year.

What’s on your Autumn TBR?

Stalking Jack the Ripper

Give the Dark My Love

A Curse So Dark and Lonely

Angel Mage

Steel Crow Saga
