I’ve started taking things slow from this month but it was good for the books I chose none the less. I did continue my Leigh Bardugo marathon and I am only left with King of Scars. I did four books, one of them being a short story and all of them were pleasant and nice.
1. The Bookish Holiday of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman – 4/5
A funny and heartwarming short story based on the characters from the book, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill, this is a must read for anyone who loved the book. It’s available for free on the authors website: Holiday Short Story
2. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo – 4/5
The final part of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy, Ruin and Rising was definitely a good conclusion to the story. I wouldn’t consider it to be one of the best works of fiction out there especially having read the Six of Crows duology already, but the universe that was created is very beautiful and I think it makes up for all the flaws I felt were in the story. This is a must read to all the fantasy lovers out there.
3. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo – 4.5/5
Released on September 26 2017, this is a collection of six dark fairy tales with the Leigh Bardugo twist. Each story is sure to leave you with a surprising feeling in the end.
4. Darius the Great is Not Okay by Adib Khorram – 5/5
A YA Fiction/Bildungsroman, this book is a must read for everyone who reads fiction. The author managed to capture the message he was trying to pass on and project it as beautifully as humanly possible. It was released in August’18 and the part two is due 25th August’2020.
I cannot wait to see what August has in store for me. See y’all next time with the next month’s wrap up.
