Recent Reading Wrap up - Summer 2020

It's been some time since my last reading wrap up here on the blog. The reason is simple. I spend my summer in Greece with my family, away from my books and my routine. That had an impact on my reading too and that is why I don't have monthly wrap ups but a summer one.

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass #0.1 - 0.5) - Sarah J Maas

This is the first time I read anything from Sarah J. Maas and after reading The Assassin's Blade, I think I should have done it earlier. I really enjoyed reading the backstory of Celaena and I cannot wait to read more.

The Lost City (The Omte Origins #1) - Amanda Hocking

I really enjoyed reading The Lost City. It's the first time I read a book with trolls as main characters and I liked it. The book is fast-paced and the writing style suits me perfectly.

The Magic of Terry Pratchett - Mark Burrows

The Magic Of Terry Pratchett is the first full biography of Sir Terry Pratchett ever written. In this book Marc Burrows does a brief analysis and description of the books while giving background information on them, which is very interesting and informative at the same time. I also learned many things about his personal life that made Terry Pratchett even more interesting than before.

The Beautiful (The Beautiful #1) - Renee Ahdieh

This book was marketed as a vampire book. Thankfully , for me, it wasn't one, at least not all of it. I really enjoyed the writing and the setting of the story.

Why you should read children's books, even though you are so old and wise - Katherine Rundell

This is a small non-fiction book about children's books and how they constantly ignite our imagination and create new perspectives. It points out that we should read children's books without feeling any shame.  I really enjoyed reading it.

Where Dreams Descend (Kingdom of cards #1) - Janella Angeles

Where Dreams Descend is full of magic! 
I really enjoyed reading this book and I practically devoured it. It is well-written  fast-paced and the action starts from the beginning.
It's a fun and at the same time dark story with some mysterious characters.

Girl, Serpent, Thorn - Melissa Bashardoust

I didn't expect to like this one, but I really did like it. It's kind of a retelling of a Persian myth and it reads like a real fairytale. The story is perfectly structured and well-paced.

Review to come soon.

Harry Potter: Film Vault: Volume 10: Wizarding Homes and Villages  -  Titan Books

It's a book about the filmmaking secrets behind the HP films regarding the wizarding homes and the Hogsmeade Village. It's the 10th volume out of 12 in total and I am intrigued to get them all. I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend it for any Harry Potter fan.

Rating: 5 Stars
