Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with my August wrap up! I only had one book on my tbr for this month and I actually managed to read it in the first week of the month so I was pretty chuffed with myself for that. I definitely read more books than I thought I would this month so I’m not gonna lie even though I didn’t read a massive load of books I am still pretty proud of myself.
This month the only book on my tbr was my arc copy of They Both Die at The End, and somehow I managed to read it, plus a whole bunch of other amazing novels!

I wasn’t a massive fan of the first half of this comic but I think it really picked up towards the end, that being said it ended on a cliffhanger. Considering the ending I feel like I should definitely be more excited about the next volume, I don’t know if I just wasn’t a big fan of this one or if I’m just too tired at the moment.

I really loved reading this, it’s definitely one of my favourite children’s classics, and I’m kind of stunned by how many people didn’t even know about this until the movie trailer came out. That being said for the first 95% of the book there’s mainly only build up, and even the ending is pretty flat. I really don’t know what I love so much about this story, but whatever it is, I need more of it on my tbr.

I think I’m in the minority when I say this but for the first two thirds of this book I was pretty bored. I mean it took me a month to read the first half of this, but then I smashed out the rest of the book in a couple of hours. I really enjoyed this overall, and the ending left me speechless and running high on every type of emotion, I will definitely be picking up another Adam Silvera novel soon. Seriously guys, that ending, you have to read this book.

I feel… unimpressed. I didn’t have high hopes or anything, but I did still think I would really enjoy it. While, the idea for this comic series is really interesting I was mostly bored while reading it and so I really don’t think I’ll be continuing this series.

I think I’m in love with Adam Silvera’s writing? Seriously, his books are so good and so thought provoking. Like They Both Die At The End, I’m going to have to sleep this one off and talk about it a lot to my friends for the next week or so.
I know I gave this a 5 star but I did have one problem with this that was constantly bugging me throughout the book, but I’m pretty tired so I’ll get into it in my review.

I wasn’t expecting this to be as funny as it was, nor was I expecting to finish this book in one day. But hey, this series is just that good!

Yes, you do! I was pretty nervous to pick up a novel by him at first but I pretty much got sucked in immediately so I totally urge you to give his books a go. Which novel do you think you will pick up first?
