Late July Reading Update

Read a book with a Dark Cover- Death Note VOL 1: boredom by Tsugumi Ohba 5/5

Death note is a much better manga than it is an anime, in my opion. I can feel the character of Light better in the Manga and better understand his motivations. The rest of the series will make it to my TBR list.

Choose a book from your TBR at Random- DeadlyEducation by Naomi Novik 5/5

I listened to this book on audio while catching up on paperwork at work. I loved this book. The main character El really pulled me in. She reminds me a bit of myself in high school, a bit anti-social- not all by choice- not popular, and suspicious of people when she is sought out. El’s reactions are genuine to a bullied/ostracized teenager and it really made me feel heard. In addition, the school was masterfully executed if terrifying. I will be reading the sequel when it comes out in September!

Read a book Featuring a wealthy Character- Vengeful by V.E. Schwab- Swapped out for The Cousins by Karen M. McManus

While I love V.E. Schwab her books are heavy to me, it takes me longer to read than other books of similar page lengths, with my level of work and overtime this month along with scheduling difficulties I had to swap for a lighter book, I will be coming back to this book! 

Cousins by Karen M. McManus 5/5

The cousins is an interesting tale, the Story family is from an island, they own a resort on this island and have a lot of money. Enough to turn the heads of people with less scruples than one would hope. This story(LOL) follows 3 generations from the same family. Without spoilers, there are many twists and turns, there are no good guys at the end of this tale just many shades of grey. I highly recommend this book for mystery lovers and people who believe that no one is all good or all bad.

Thank you for reading!
