So I know what you are thinking wow that’s a lot of books for one week and yeah I am still a little struck by it too but three of these were audiobooks that I listened to at work. I also did a little mini readathon for myself and managed to finish three books in that time so that’s another factor. And 2 of these were a graphic novel and a manga. I really enjoyed Daughter of the Siren Queen I think even more than the first book maybe because we actually get to see Alosa on her ship being Captain and I love how ruthless she can be. I gave it 5/5. Bill Koinsberg’s books were an amazing surprise and I highly recommend them I gave the two novels 5/5 and the novella 4/5. I posted a review for Honestly Ben if you wanna check it out. The Summer of Jordi Perez was such a cute sweet romance between two girls and it was really refreshing since for some reason it’s a thing for the love story between two girls to be tragic. I am so glad that Amy Spalding is working help fix that trend. Kristen and I buddy read A Fistful of Charms and it’s a fourth book in a series and I don’t want to spoil anything for you so I’ll just say that I gave 4/5 and I really hope a certain character leaves the picture soon. Rereading Goblet of Fire was fun because I use to always say it was my least favorite but I had a ton of fun this go around I think the main thing that gets on my nerves is Harry and Ron fighting because my heart just can’t take it.

Currently Reading: 

I am unsure what novel I am picking up next as I finished all the ones I had on the go this morning. I might have to do a try a chapter thing to figure it out.

    It’s been a while since I read any of the Uglies novels or Shay’s story, but I think I might binge them before the new novels start coming out in the fall. This was a good reminder. Thanks for sharing!

      I am definitely thinking about doing that as well Shay’s story reminded of just how much I love that world and the characters.

  2. I love the Uglies series, but I haven’t read Shay’s Story yet. Is it worth it?
    I love Konigsberg’s work (and Bill himself!).

    Happy reading this week 🙂

      I really enjoyed Shay’s story and it definitely adds another layer to Uglies because you get a better understanding of Tally and Shay’s friendship.
      Happy reading to you as well 🙂
