A Very Late June Wrap Up

I'm incredibly late by posted my June wrap at the end of July, but here it is anyway. If you want to know why I haven't posted much this month, check out my previous post Life and Blog Update. I'm going to keep this short, so here are the books I read in June! Finally!

1. Romancing the Duke (Castles Ever After, #1) by Tessa Dare

For some reason, I was incredibly into historical romance novels in the begining of the month. Really enjoyed Tessa Dare's books. I gave this one 3 stars.

2. If I Only Had a Duke (The Disgraceful Dukes, #2) by Lenora Bell 

I wasn't as impressed with this one. I gave it 2 stars and decided to stick to Tessa Dare's novels.

3. Giant Days, Vol. 2 (Giant Days, #2) by John Allison

I really enjoy this comic series! I'm sad they changed the art style though. 4 stars! Really recommend it!

4. Nasty Women by 404 Ink

My first non-fiction book and Netgalley arc! I'm so proud of myself! :)
Really enjoyed this one and I would highly recommend this collection of feminist essays! You can find my review here.

5. Say Yes to the Marquess (Castles Ever After, #2) by Tessa Dare

This was my least favourite Tessa Dare novel so far. Sadly, I was quite bored by it at times. My Goodreads rating is 3 stars but it's more a 2,5 stars for me.

6. When a Scot Ties the Knot (Castles Ever After, #3) by Tessa Dare

This book was hilarious! 4 stars! Recommend it! 
You can read all these Tessa Dare books separately, you do not need to read them in order.

7. And I Darken (The Conqueror's Saga, #1) by Kiersten White 

3 stars. You can find my review here.

8. Now I Rise (The Conqueror's Saga, #2) by Kiersten White 

I'm so grateful I got approved to read this arc through Netgalley! 4 stars! You can find my review here.

9. Red Rising (Red Rising, #1) by Pierce Brown

Last but not least, I finally finished Red Rising! I started it in May, but for some reason didn't get past page 40. I borrowed this book from a friend of mine who loved it, so I had to give it another chance. And I did end up enjoying the second half of the book so much more!

Life and Blog Update

Hi everyone!

As you may have noticed, I've not been active on my blog for over a month now and I would like to give a little explanation. I've been working on my thesis which is due next week, I'm almost finished but it's a lot of work. Secondly, I've also had a relaxing trip to Spain with my family and I don't have an internet connection over there.
I have read a couple of books since my last post and I can't wait to tell you guys about them!
I'm currently reading Crooked Kingdom, Wild and Ship of Magic. Which books are you reading?

I can't say when my next post will be published, but I will be back in the land of bloggers after the fourth of August, which is the date my thesis is due. Thanks for sticking with me for this long without any posts!

Have a great week and happy reading!
