Um, so, this is very late. Very, very late. I’ve been quite busy this far in August though, I’ve had a lot of work and not a lot of free time to write blog posts. So let’s pretend half of August hasn’t passed already, haha.
Here are the books I read in July.
Saga volume 6
by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
I didn’t even know this volume had been released when I found it in a bookstore, on the actual release day I think. This is my favorite volume this far, I loved everything about it. I probably won’t write a full review so here’s my goodreads comment.
Like I wrote in the last wrap-up post when I listed what I was currently reading, this genre isn’t my usual cup of tea. This is more in the realm of chick-lit. But I read it over the summer, while chilling at the poolside, and it was fitting for that. It wasn’t too bad, it was entertaining enough even though I didn’t buy the main premise that a mother would force her daughter to do all these things in less than a year.
The Raven Boys
by Maggie Stiefvater
I did not think this would be good because of the terribly cheesy and clichè synopsis. And then??? It’s so good? Definitely one of my favorite books. All the characters are great, they come alive on the page. Don’t read the synopsis, especially not the one on the back of the book. Just don’t. It has nothing to do with the story at all. Ridiculous.
Another Norwegian book that I listened to on audio. It’s not really my style either, but it was alright.
