Monthly Reading Wrap Up: June 2018

I’m a bit late on this wrap up, but like people say, better later than never knowing what I read for June… Oh wait that’s not what people say, but here’s my wrap up anyway!

Read it? Yes, read both.

If you’re in any of the following A) feeling sad or B) down C) in a mourning period because of the last book you read or D) stuck in a reading slump, then I recommend reading this series. It is fluffy, and cute, and adorable, and everything you need when in a good contemporary book to lift you up.

REVIEWS: P.S. I Still Love You | Always and Forever, Lara Jean

 

 

Tomboy by Liz Prince

Read it? Absolutely!

If you’re looking a funny and enlightening book that happens to be a graphic novel, then please read this book! It’s a memoir about the author’s struggles with being a tomboy, rejecting girlhood, and growing up. I loved everything about it, the story, the art style, the characters, and anything else you can think of.

BOOK REVIEW

 

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

Read it? Sure

I didn’t exactly love it, but it’s still good and I wouldn’t not recommend it. By all means go ahead and read it if you like long descriptions of luxury, travel, Singapore or the south east Asian region, food, and or fashion.

BOOK REVIEW

 

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Read it? YES!

This was such a beautiful book and I’m so glad I finally read it. There’s something beautifully innocent in children’s literature which I fell in love with from the beginning of this book. It’s creative, imaginative, quirky, and most importantly fun. My favorite quote and the one I’ve been going back to ever since I finished the book is: “the essential is invisible to eyes.” With that quote in mind it’s impossible not to look at the world a bit different than before.

 

Books I Did Not Finish

Note to Self by Connor Franta

Read it? Skip it

I read about 30% of this journal like memoir by Franta. I just didn’t enjoy the writing style of this book, which I’m quickly figuring out that it’s not my type of writing at all. For more please check out my BOOK REVIEW. The only reason I would recommend it is if you’re already a fan of Franta’s work.
