FRIDAY READS (#20)

It’s finally the weekend again!

It has been a crazy busy week for me. With getting back to the gym, business and resume classes, job interviews, it’s been hectic.

Tonight is my last class for the week and then it will definitely be time to indulge in some binge reading.

10025305I’m currently four chapters into Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare, the second book in the Infernal Devices series. You can click here to find it on Goodreads. I am really enjoying this series so far. I just finished Clockwork Angel and my review will be coming up for that soon so make sure you keep an eye out for that.

8755776Next on my list to read is City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. Going back to the Mortal Instruments series, this is the fifth book in the series. You can click here to find it on Goodreads. I’m so excited to get back into this series and to figure out what my main man Jace is up to.

Other than that I don’t have much else planned. I’m in the mood where I want to read every single book in the world right now so I have no idea what I’m going to pick up next!

I hope everyone has a great weekend, let me know what you are reading this weekend!

MALLORY’S JULY WRAP UP + AUGUST TBR

Well, it’s hard to believe July is already over. This summer is going by way too fast. I managed to read quite a few books in July, not as many as June though. I plan to make August even better!

Books I read in July:
1. The Vampire Prince by Darren Shan ★★★★★
The sixth book in the Saga of Darren Shan. A brilliant series. Quick and easy reads with ton of action.
2. Animal Farm by George Orwell ★★★★★
A wonderful classic, so happy I finally got around to reading this.
3. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart ★★★★
Review coming soon.
4. The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer ★★★
The seventh book in the Artemis Fowl series. Not as enjoyable as the others, but I can’t wait to move on to the next book.
5. Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl ★★★★
The third book in the Caster Chronicles. Enjoyed this a little less than the second book,
6. Hunters Of The Dusk by Darren Shan ★★★★★
The seventh in the series and just as great as the rest.
7. The Magicians Nephew by C.S. Lewis ★★★★
A cute and fun read, but the allegory was very noticeable and a little annoying with this one.
8. The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett ★★★★
Review coming soon.
9. Beautiful Redemption by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl ★★★★
The last in the series. So sad it has come to an end. I really grew to love the characters and the caster world.
10. Gulp by Mary Roach ★★★★
Was craving a non fiction and I think this was a good place to start. Very interesting and I’m intrigued to read more of Roach’s work.
11. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier ★★★★
An eerie read and very interesting.
12. Ruin And Rising by Leigh Bardugo ★★★★
The last in the series. This book was my most anticipated book of the year and it was a very satisfying ending.
13. Eragon by Christopher Paolini ★★★★
Gotta love dragons, this was a great start to a series and can’t wait to get even more into it.
14. The Horse And His Boy by C.S. Lewis ★★★
The third in the series. Fell a little flat compared to the first two.
15. Always Something There To Remind Me by Beth Harbison ★★★★
This was my book club book of the month. Was actually a cute and fast read.
16. Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony ★★★★★
An absolute beautiful story told through pictures. This book gave me more feelings than most regular books and movies would.
17. A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore ★★★★★
A very hilarious read, my first novel by Moore and I am very excited to get to more of his books.
18. Saga Volume 2 by Brian K. Vaughan ★★★★
This is a fabulous graphic novel series (lots of sex, violence and swearing so please make sure you are a mature age if you are wanting to read this). Basically shit went down, and this was awesome.
19. Saga Volume 3 by Brian K. Vaughan ★★★★
Such a cliffhanger ending, when does volume 4 come out??
20. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton ★★★★
I’ve got dinosaur fever right now. Loved this, it was almost better than the movie!

1. City Of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
2. Club Dead by Charlaine Harris
3. The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
