Weekly Wrap-Up #16

As ever, it’s been a while since my last weekly wrap-up (I should really change the name), but I’m hoping to make these more regular from now on. I’ll be reviewing all the books I’ve read recently in around fifty words or less, but honestly, they’ve all been excellent.

1. Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas

This was a buddy read for The Biblio Games and boy, was this a challenge. It took me quite a while to get back into the story and I was eagerly anticipating the battle scenes, which I really enjoyed. However, I felt like my absolute favourite characters deserved a bit better. Three and a half stars.

2. All the Rage by Courtney Summers 🧠

Summers does not hold back with her anger radiating off the pages with this heart-breaking dissection of rape culture with a brilliantly jumpy narrative and powerful main character in Romy. She just has such a talent for delving right into the heart of issues and create these characters that never leave you, Sadie being a prime example. I need to read more of her work. Four stars.

3. The Paper and Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie 🧠🏳️‍🌈

I devoured this on a train journey back home and just felt so seen. These characters are literally me and my friends and Lucy just gets being a bookish teenager and how important finding your tribe is. Full thoughts here. Four and a half stars.

4. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro 🧠

This was another re-read that reminded me just how much I need to continue this series. I really enjoyed this fun, but also hard-hitting at times, re-telling of Sherlock Holmes. Every time Charlotte did an observation was just brilliant and the plot was so riveting, with unexpected twists and turns. Four stars.

5. I Hold Your Heart by Karen Gregory 🧠🏳️‍🌈

As ever, Gregory has created an incredible book that made me cry with characters that I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. Full review is here, as part of my first ever blog tour! Four and a half stars.

6. The Kingdom by Jess Rothenburg🧠⭐️

This book hooked me instantly and then just absolutely blew me away. Full review here! Four and a half stars.

This was such an excellent reading week to close the month, which honestly hasn’t been the best for me.
