July/August Book Review

Thanks to e-books and afternoon naps I am still going strong with my reading goal and I am even ahead of schedule. I thought for sure that once school started back up I would struggle to find the time to read, but currently B takes a 45 minute nap when we get home in the evenings...and after being away from him all day I refuse to put him down #BabiesDontKeep; so it gives me some time each evening to snuggle with my babe and my current book.

I decided to combine July and August because well...the beginning of August was crazy and blogging got put on the back burner. Going back to work after 4 months at home has been a transition...and most of my free time is spent soaking up all the snuggles with B.

Time is a hot commodity around here these days, so this post will be short and sweet! If you want to see my ratings, more info on the books, or a complete list of books I have read you can find my Goodreads account HERE.

Uhhh....I am not really sure where to start with this book. I checked it out from the library and didn't have many expectations, which I suppose was a good thing. It was your typical mindless chick-lit read about an overweight girl who gets in shape, tries to impress a boy, blah blah blah. I didn't hate it...but I didn't love it. 

Ugh...this book and the 2 that came before it top my list as my favorite guilty pleasures. I had been waiting very impatiently for this book to be released and then for it to become available to check out from the library. It was definitely worth the wait. I love this trilogy and have my fingers crossed there will be more! All 3 books take place in the same location, Mischief Bay, but each book focuses on different characters. I have loved all 3 equally, and they are books I would definitely recommend. 

I'm slightly torn on this book...I liked it, couldn't put it down, and couldn't wait to find out how it ended...and then bam it ended I and I was left feeling like something was missing. I love a good mystery/suspense novel, but sometimes the ending can ruin it for me. Overall I would say this was a good book, but I wish the ending would have turned out to be different. 

I'm a sucker for teen lit, so when I saw this book I knew it was one I needed to read. While I have to say I mostly enjoyed it, it definitely wasn't my favorite. The story line was pretty far fetched, but it definitely had a good "moral of the story" and some feel good moments. All in all, if you are a lover of teen lit I wouldn't say not to read this one...but I would say read some of the others on your list first ;)

My reviews were extra bland and vague this month, but nap time is almost over and I have some laundry to get done! One of these days I will figure out how to juggle my work/home/blog life ;)
