5 star, wrap up

June 2018 Wrap Up

And also June has passed! How was your reading month?

I read lesser than the past month, only 8 books, and 3 were in italian.

But look! A lot of amazing covers! And I love most of the books, only Maplecroft was a disappointement.

Maplecroft, Cherie Priest: I’ve watched The Lizzie Borden Chronicles on Netflix, and I love Christina Ricci. She’s amazing in the series, so I decided to read Maplecroft, based on the same characters, but the Lovecraftian turn has disappointed me. I was bored, and totally not afraid. 2 stars.

The long way to a small, angry planet, Becky Chambers: I don’t like sci-fi books, I’m sorry. I fell in love with the characters, but the plot was boring. 3 stars.

Chronicles of Steele: Raven, Episode one, Pauline Creeden: An interesting fantasy, with an original main characters, with a dark and misterious past. But I didn’t find the steampunk part, and it’s a shame, because I love steampunk books! 3 stars.

The One and Only Ivan, Katherine Applegate: I know in advance that this book will made me cry a river, and that’s it. I cried every two pages, but it’s one of the best books I ever read. 5 stars!

Bring me their Hearts, Sara Wolf: this book is fantastic, with a range of unforgettable characters, full of emotions and sassy dialogues. Definitely a 5 stars for me!

What’s your favourite cover? I’m undecided between The One and Only Ivan and Bring me their hearts!

  1. I’m halfway through Chambers’ upcoming Record of a Spaceborn Few and I kind of agree with you! The characters are great and lovable, but there isn’t much of a plot, and I’m still not sure how to feel about that. And I have One and Only Ivan on my TBR! I’ll definitely be reading it with a box of tissues at hand. 😀
