Sundown Rundown – July 2018

ezgif.com-crop

Good evening bookworms!

The sky is a wild array of oranges, reds, pinks, and purples. The sun is cresting the horizon, ready to sleep for the night. The stars are peeking out. It’s dusk, my favorite time of day, and this is the Sundown Rundown where I tell you all that I’ve read and reviewed this month.

So, if you missed a review or a ramble then this is a good place to catch up!

On a side note: Orange is the New Black, Season 6 came out just a few days ago and it was wild, intense, and I believe it shed some light on some very real issues. Still with the comedy and awkwardness, it’s still freak amazeballs.

It’s been a busy and surprisingly long month. So, here we go!

Jay's Journal

Jay’s Journal

Author: Anonymous

A slow building, scary story. Boy gets involved in witchcraft that turns into Satanism that ultimately leads to his death. The really scary part? It’s all true.

 

Favorite Book this Month: There were so many that were really enjoyable. This month there was a tie. Children of Blood and Bone and Marked. They both got me tied up. Children worked me over with it’s beautiful world and how the story was an incredible parallel with our own world. Marked hooked me with its nonstop action and characters that had explosive chemistry. I really couldn’t choose. The magic in both of these books was off the wall.

Least Favorite Book the Month: Lasher. As wonderful as the in-depth detail and characters and the darkness of witchcraft was, I was lagging during this book. I could’ve skipped over a good bit of what went on. That ruins a great novel, I know, but the length really put me off. The supernatural is my favorite, but like I said, I dragged. I just couldn’t get as invested as I wanted to, and trust me, I tried.

 

Until next month!!

 

More to come soon…
