WRAP-UP| September 2018

I've written this blog post three times and every time something happens, either my Harold (my laptop) runs out of battery before I get a chance to plug it in or it doesn't save or both.

This month was hectic to say the least. I had to prep and pack to move back to North Wales for my final year as an undergraduate, and then I had to catch up with some friends that I haven't seen in three months, only to head straight into classes.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before #1)
Jenny Han

Add to Goodreads

Of course, with the Netflix release of the adaptation I had to give TATBILB a quick little reread. I loved it! Sweet, funny and I thoroughly enjoy the family dynamics as much as the romantic ones.
Assassin's Quest (Farseer Trilogy #3)
Robin Hobb

Add to Goodreads

I wasn't ready to say goodbye to these characters (I know there are other books that follow Fitz and the Fool, but this was the end of their first arc). Hobb's is able to craft the characters I love more than anything - deeply flawed, with their own set of values and enough dynamic to get me turning the pages at a dangerous pace.
Vengeful (Villains #2)

Add to Goodreads

I waited five years for a sequel I never thought I'd get. V wrote this, pulled it apart and then rewrote it. I read it, I cried, I reread the ending. 
This duology might be my favourite of all time.

P.S.I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Before #2)
Jenny Han

Add to Goodreads

This book just grated on. Peter K acts like a pillock, then we get this sweet romance going with John Ambrose McClaren and the wraps up within 20 pages and just left me with a sour taste in my mouth. 
Always and Forever, Lara Jean (To All the Boys I've Loved Before #3)
Jenny Han

This might be my favourite book of the trilogy. 
It deals with so much more than just Lara Jean experiencing relationships for the first time. That transition from the end of one part of your education and into the next. Losing people you care about and moving forward after family tragedy.
