So I already own the first three books in the Vampire Academy series by Mead and I've only read the first one, but I really enjoyed it. I also saw that Spirit Bound in particular was hardcover and only $6.00 on indigo so I thought I'd snatch it up. I'm excited to read the rest of the books in the Vampire Academy series, they are very much well loved and I don't know why it took me so long to pick them up. I've always planned too, but I've always happened to forget too. Also it's a lot of money to buy such a big series, but hey! it was cheaper online! And I have a feeling I'll be reading these back to back.
The last two I picked up are all due to the lovely Regan from PeruseProject on Youtube! I've been obsessed with her videos and she recommended Shatter Me/Unravel Me (expect a full review soon.. cause O.M.F.G.) last month in her videos and I read both and LOVED them. I think we have really similar book tastes, so I decided to pick up the books she was recently raving about and those are The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken - which btw, I barely know anything about, but it sounds good and it's gotten really good reviews so far on good reads. And the other one was Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood - and it's about witches.. and so I knew I had to pick it up. I've always had a soft spot for witches, and it reminds me of reading a bunch of Sabrina and the Teenage Witch books when I was younger. I look forward to reading both of these, and of course, my thoughts will be on goodreads for them and most likely, a book review as well.
I did film a July wrap-up.. but to be honest, the footage was quite crappy, so I think I'll have posts up of individual reviews for those books that I did read.. and let me tell you, I read 13 freaking books last month! that is absolute insanity.. so I guess you can brace yourself for 13 book review posts coming throughout the month. I'm also going to start reading these books from this haul as soon as I finish my TBR list.. because I'd like to finish my goals early on.. and also I'm going away at the end of the month, so I don't think dragging Ulysses all the way to the Mexico is a good idea!
Well that's it from me for today. I'm already a 1/4 of the way through The Cuckoo's Calling.. and I am seriously loving it.. so I'm going to get back to it now! Let me know in the comments if you've read any of the books I bought above.. or if you have any recommendations.. cause this is most definitely the first of many book hauls you'll see from me for the month of August! Happy reading all!
