End of June Update

For some reason I've never been the greatest on following up on projects. I start with all the greatest intentions, but then I get bored or find something else fun to do. But, I have been trying to be better about that starting with this challenge. And yes, I know it isn't quite the end of June but I don't really care.

  • I am still part of the way through Atonement. I haven't attempted to read it lately, but hopefully I will find some strength to carry on.
  • I finished Little Lady Agency, the review coming soon. This has been on my to-read list since it came out and I guess I forgot about it until I saw it at the library.
  • I also finished A Surrey State of Affairs, which was fantastic.
  • Fried Green Tomatoes is still sitting on my Kindle. Should really get on that.

Rating: 4 stars

This is the second book in the Matched series, and I was a little hesitant about reading it. I did enjoy the first one but YA series tend to get boring for me. Thankfully, this one doesn't.

Things I enjoyed: It didn't wait the entire book getting Cassia and Ky back together. I really hate when authors do that just to keep the tension because it really just makes the book boring. You can still bring them together and have some conflict.

Things I didn't like: Nothing really. Looking forward to the next one.

I read this for the Semi-Charmed Life Summer Challenge and got 15 points for the Read a book in one day challenge. I am now at 20 points!
