#JuneWrapUp

monthly-wrap-up

I read four books this month and I am happy with that.  I started reading the Illiad and the Odyssey and decided to put it on hold.  I will eventually finish it, it just might take a while. Here are the books that I read in June:

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews- ⭐️⭐️⭐️Did I enjoy this book? Yes, but I didn’t love it. It was a quick and easy read. I liked how there was some humor, and loved how some of it was written like a script. I found Greg’s mother to be extremely annoying, I really didn’t like her as a character at all. I felt like There should have been more to Greg and Rachel’s friendship than there was. I also thought that Rachel was boring, I was expecting more out of her character. My favorite character was definitely Greg, he was funny, didn’t take things to0 seriously. I also loved how he narrated the book. Even though I didn’t love this book, I did enjoy the author’s writing and will definitely be reading more from Jesse Andrews.

Ithaca by Patrick Dillon- ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I received an eArc of this book from NetGalley.

I gave this three stars for one reason and one reason only, for me there wasn’t enough.  I really wanted more, especially from the relationship between Telemachus and Odysseus.  I felt that there wasn’t enough development in their relationship.  I loved how Telemachus, on his journey to find his father, really grew up and developed as a character.  I also loved how Telemachus, in a sense was able to get to know his father from the stories that he was told from those who knew his father.  Despite the three star rating, I did enjoy this book.

The Crown by Kiera Cass- ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I loved Eadlyn’s growth as a character and how she followed her heart. I also loved how she took it upon herself to hold more responsibilities. What I didn’t like was the ending, it was too much of a cliffhanger for me.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige- ⭐️⭐️⭐️I loved the world building, the concept and how creative this book is. However, I thought that some of the characters could have been more interesting, especially Amy. This book is a unique and different twist on The Wizard of Oz. I will continue with the series as I’m curious to see how it ends.

      1. I know!!! I think you misunderstood what I was trying to say… When I see wrap up posts I check the books that people liked, so at the end it’s a sort of recommendation!

      1. I actually learned that after watching the movie. 🙂 I am not forcing you to watch the movie. I just thought that you might enjoy it more than the book. 🙂 Have a great day! 🙂
