June Reads

The Hunger Games

Let me just start off by saying that this book is hyped up for a reason. The pacing was so good that I literally couldn’t set it down, the plot and storyline forced the reader to think and reflect upon the main message in the story, the romance was sweet and full but not overdone, and all the characters were amazing. I have been wanting to read these books for quite a while, but wasn’t allowed to until I was older because of the violence. I’m partially glad for this because I wouldn’t have understood it as much if I had read it when I was 9.

Rating: πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Catching Fire

At first I was kind of nervous to read this book because the original is *almost* always better than the sequel. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. Just like the first installment, Catching Fire was full of exciting twists and turns in the plot/storyline, a meaningful message, and debatably the best protagonist of all time. Can’t wait to read the Mockingjay!

The Name of This Book is Secret

I loved this book as well! The writing style and the pacing were spot on, and the characters from the protagonists to the villains were unique, in a good way. This was a quick and an entertaining book, and easily made the reader want to come back for more.

Fish in a Tree

I enjoyed this book for the most part, but there were some minor problems with it. For example Other than that, it was an excellent book with a good message

Overall, I’m really happy with the books I read this month. The worst rating I gave was 4 hearts, which is still any amazing rating!

NaNoWriMo Update

I’ll admit, the first month of NaNo has been hard, even though I’ve spilt up writing 50k into 3 months rather than one month, it’s still difficult. I did this because I wanted to take my time on my writing and not just rush to make a lame rough draft that will take a lot of editing later to fix.

I am little bit behind, but I don’t really care–all that really matters is that I’m passionate about my writing, working hard, and genuinely enjoying the experience.

It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.

  2. So I am super behind on all the blogs I follow so I’ve only just got to this wrap-up now, but I’m glad to hear you had a good reading month in June! You definitely read some lovely titles, and I’m happy to hear you are enjoying the Hunger Games series!
    I agree that the pacing is really good, and I feel that the books are so much better than the movies as you get to know Katniss’ emotions with everything that is going on.

    And yes to cheesy quotes! I really do need to look at Pinterest more often, but it’s one of those sites that sucks you in and before you know it you’ve spent hours looking at random things haha πŸ˜›

    Lovely post!
