Chrissi’s Summer Challenge!
I work in a school, so I have a glorious six weeks off in the summer. Today I’m back to school. Sad face. Oh well, I can’t complain too much as I have completed my Summer Challenge! On 18th June, I picked 10 books on the top of my to be read pile as part of Top Ten Tuesday. I then decided, that I would actually endeavour to read these books! So here are my thoughts on my favourites and unfortunately one DNF (Did Not Finish).
If you click on the book image, it’ll take you to the book’s Goodreads profile. Easier to add to your TBR list that way! If you click on the title of the book, it’ll take you to my review (bar my DNF book).
10. Q- A Love Story- Evan Mandery
Unfortunately this is the book that I didn’t finish. I recently read a review saying that you wouldn’t enjoy it if you weren’t into philosophy. Well, that doesn’t work for me. I studied philosophy at university and it is one of my biggest passions. For me, it was too slow and went off track. I’m sure others would enjoy it though which is why I decided to include it even though I don’t usually mention books that I DNF.
9. Grow Up- Ben Brooks
8. Beauty Queens- Libba Bray
7. Why We Broke Up- Daniel Handler
I think this is such a beautifully illustrated book. I didn’t really know much about it when I picked it up, but it was a pleasure to read! Not the most amazing story ever, but definitely likeable and very readable.
6. Attachments- Rainbow Rowell
5. Under The Never Sky- Veronica Rossi
4. The Beautiful and The Cursed- Page Morgan
3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer- Michelle Hodkin
2. Boundless- Cynthia Hand
Argh! I wasn’t sure I was going to like Boundless that much since I wasn’t overly keen on Hallowed. I still like Hallowed, but it didn’t quite match up to Unearthly for me. I need not have feared, I really enjoyed Boundless. A great end to the series. (If you’re on the same ‘Team’ as me..)
1. Divergent- Veronica Roth
Have you read any on my list? If so, what were your favourites?
