Hey Bookends,

It is officially summer time!!!! Another month has gone by and it is now time for my wrap up and TBR! I read a total of eight books all of which had pretty high ratings. Also all of these books, except one, were all on my TBR!! I am so proud of myself. I participated in the Bout of Books 16 (TBR & Wrap Up) and did pretty well. ANyway lets talk about the books I read this month.

  • I then read Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari and I also gave it 5/5 stars.
  • Next I read DA Vinci’s Tiger by L.M. Elliott which I gave it 3/5 stars. (This ended up being a Copy Cat Challenge book)

    I’ve been meaning to get to the Iron Trial for ages. I even have an autographed copy. What did you think of it? Do you think it was trying to be Harry Potter?

      I thought it was really good. In no way shape or form trying to be Harry Potter. The storyline was very original and I can’t wait to read the next one.

    I’ve been wanting to read The One and Only Ivan. I don’t think I’ve seen a negative review yet. Guess I’m going to have to check it out!
