July 2014 Wrap-up


Thanks to the book tube-a-thon last month, I actually got a substantial amount of reading done. During the read-a-thon I managed to read 3 novels and 3 mangas and then another 2 books prior to this earlier in July.  So all up 8 books including some Mangas.

The SavagesProxy (Proxy, #1)
The Btooom! series (which i also recently found out is an anime show as well) by Junya Inoue just keeps getting better and better with each volume. While at times it can be a little disturbing and gorey it's a really decent anime that reminds me of a more messed up version of The Hunger Games.The Giver by Louis Lowry was probably my favourite read of the month earning it a 5/5 - with a full review to come soon. The Savages was my least favourite of the books I read, while an interesting topic it just didn't grab me as a I hoped it would and felt like it lacked action till the last 50 pages or so.

Up Next In August:   

This month is going to be another busy month for me unfortunately. I've got 2 Assignments due in a few weeks time, plus a lot of group fundraising projects for my volunteer trip to Tonga. But despite this I'm hoping to read at least 3 of the following books :)

High Stakes (The Mediator, #2)Just One Day (Just One Day, #1)Ready Player One

+ TBR Jar

 Babe in Boyland

I read the first Mediator book by Meg Cabot last month, and it was so cute and funny and I'm really keen to keep going with the series so High Stakes is on my list for this month. Ready Player One is on my list as the read-a-long book for the month at the goodreads group 'Little Book Club', which is run by Catriona from the Youtube channel Little Book Owl. Last month I planned to read Just One Day, but ran out of time so I'm making it a priority this month. Especially since quite a few people read it during the booktube-a-thon and I've been hearing great things regarding it. Lastly my TBR Jar pick for the month is Babe in Boyland, which I brought ages ago and pretty much have no idea what it's about haha


What books did You read in the Month of July, and which was your favorite? Book plans for the month of August?
