This is the first wrap up I've done for my blog and even though I've been using this blog for over a month, I just didn't feel like it was something I wanted to post on my blog the first month I was creating content. On to the books I read!

Favorite book:

My favorite book of the month was Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I loved this story so much. I loved the characters and all the plot elements. I felt like this book was a great foundation piece for this series, and I cannot wait to continue on with the series. I buddy read this with Sierra (who I did steal this format from), and I think it just enhanced the experience so much. I can't wait to see what the rest of these books have to offer.

Least favorite book:

My least favorite book and my most disappointing read of the month was easily The Young Elites by Marie Lu. I had such high expectations for this book, and I really wish I would have enjoyed it. I didn't like the writing style or the way the story was executed. I loved the idea for the story, but overall I didn't connect with or care for the characters, and the plot didn't interest me enough to continue the series at this point in time.

What did you read?
