In July I received copies of Cruel Broken Heart by Emma Haughton and These Shallow Graves from a friend, and then went to Yalc (The Young Adult Literature Convention in London) where I bought:
- How Not to Disappear by Clare Furniss
- Lies by Michael Grant (pre-signed)
- The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (pre-signed)
- The Manifesto on How to be Interesting by Holly Bourne (which I got signed)
- The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood (which I got signed)
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (which I got signed)
Here are a couple photos from Yalc, one of a wall of books, and one from a panel that I went to:
And here are photos of all the books and other things that I got from there:
In August I bought Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and got Beyond the Pleasure Principle by Sigmund Freud as an ebook on the Kindle app.
Reading Wrap Up
In July I read:
- Binge by Tyler Oakley
- Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
- The Loneliness of Distant Beings by Kate Ling.
In August I read:
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany
- We Are All Made of Molecules by Susin Nielsen
- The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Here’s a photo of all those books (other than Binge because I read that as an audiobook):
I really loved all of the books that I read over these 2 months which was amazing, and I don’t think I can really pick a favourite but if I had to maybe Fangirl, just because it was the perfect time to read it around going to Yalc, as it was the book I read on the train there and back, and just fitted so well into how excited I was about it all.
I’m going back to uni this September so I need to get through quite a lot of uni books but there’s also some readathons I want to take part in and non-uni books that I want to read.
There’s a YearAThon for books under 200 pages that I think I’m going to use to get through the samplers that I got from Yalc, a small poetry book, We Were Liars by E.Lockhart, and to finish Beyond the Pleasure Principle by Freud (a uni book). Then there’s a Duodecathon at the end of the month where I’d like to do the 1200 pages challenge and the favourite colour on a cover challenge but I’m not sure what books this will be with. One that I want to re-read at some point because I’m using it for my dissertation at uni is Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.
I’ll do wrap up posts for both of those readathons and maybe a couple review posts soon, so see you there 🙂 Comment below if you’ve read any of these books or about what you read in these months!
