Wallace the Brave is such an adorable little book! I think its target audience is around 8-12 (I am positive my 9- and 11-year old brothers will find it hilarious), but I’m a teenager and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m sure some older teens and adults would find it too juvenile, but I found it very entertaining, so I think it just depends on your reading preferences. It’s definitely a very light, funny read—there isn’t a whole lot of plot, but I’m okay with that, really. It’ the kind of graphic novel you sit down with when you’re tired and need something to cheer you up.
Why hello there! Fall is in the air (at least it is where I live) and it's that time again when I share everything I read in the last month. Without further ado, I present my September 2017 reading recap!
Legend is a pretty good book. It’s fast-paced, it hooks you right away, and the characters are all just super awesome people. It was a solid three star read for me. (See my rating system here.) However; while all of these things were good, there were a couple things that ticked me off.
Anne of Green Gables!! In graphic novel format!! Come find out why this book is a dream come true...
I did it! I completed the Reading Quest! I did not read as many books as I'd hoped, but I still had a lot of fun, which is the most important part, right? Hopefully I'll have better luck next time...and I sincerely hope there is a next time, because I would be so thrilled if Aentee @ Read and Midnight were to run another challenge like this one! I am super pumped that she mentioned that she's planning one for the holiday season, especially because I always read a ton over winter break.
I'd say August was an ok reading month for me—I read 8 books, and I started a super fun reading challenge, The Reading Quest. (More on that later.) Read on to hear about what I read, what I blogged, and what I hope to read in September!
Today, instead of sharing ONE book review, I'm sharing TWO! Because the only thing better than a book is multiple books. Get ready for lots of Riordan.
So, guess what? I'm doing another reading challenge! The last one I participated in (booktubeathon) was very successful, so I decided to try another one. From August 13-September 10, I will be doing The Reading Quest, which is going to be the awesomest thing ever.
Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free. Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear. It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.
Hi! Happy August! The start of this month marks one month of book blogging, which is pretty exciting! I've decided to do a little wrap-up post where I recap all the books I've read/bought this month and detail my plans for August. July was a pretty good reading month for me, so get ready to hear about a lot of books!
