  Aladdin Live Action Novelization City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3) The Great Gatsby Joe Wilson and His Mates The Kiss Quotient While the Billy Boils

   ★★★☆☆        ★★★☆☆       ★★★★☆      ★★★☆☆     ★★★★☆     ★★★★★      ★★★☆☆
  • City of Ashes [23/06 – 01/07/2019] – 3 ⭐ – This was a pretty standard 2nd book in a series. It was just plot filler and teenage angst.
  • Disney’s Aladdin [11/06 – 06/07/2019] – 3 ⭐ – This was a lot of fun and has a little bit of extra content, but it’s definitely not necessary if you’ve already seen the movie. Which I have, like 5 times.
  • City of Glass [03/07 – 07/07/2019] – 4 ⭐ – This was actually pretty good and has me pretty excited to read more by Cassandra Clare.
  • The Great Gatsby [15/06 – 09/07/2019] – 3 ⭐ – I really have no feelings on this one, it was pretty meh, not really for me.
  • Joe Wilson and His Mates [07/07 – 14/07/2019] – DNF – I read this for class, eh.
  • The Kiss Quotient [19/07 – 19/07/2019] – 5 ⭐ – This was so good and so adorable and I love it SO GODDAMN MUCH.
  • While the Billy Boils [16/07 – 19/07/2019] – DNF – I read this for class, eh.

    1. haha, thank you! I always feel like I never read much each month so that means a lot! Also, haha yes Shakespeare! I took a Shakespeare class this semester so we had to read a bunch of the plays! We did do Macbeth but I know it well enough that I didn’t re-read it, it’s one of my favourites, and yours too, I’m thinking?! 😂
