Books Read = 12
Huzzah! Better than the 9 from last month. And I even had three 5-star reads! I rarely give 5-star reads because I’m a super stingy mofo. 🙂

Best of the Month: Ashes of Honor (October Daye #6) by Seanan McGuire ★★★★★
I’m slowly but surely getting caught up on this series (goal is to be caught up before the 12th installment releases in September!) and this was the first 5 star installment. I adore this series and can’t wait to see where McGuire goes with this.
Least Favorite: The Kremlin’s Candidate by Jason Matthews ★★★½
I tore through this trilogy and it was admittedly tons of fun… but the final installment was a bit of a letdown in terms of series enders.
Biggest Surprise: What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia by Elizabeth Catte ★★★★★
I had Hillbilly Elegy on my TBR for AGES and I kept mentally beating myself up about not having read it yet. I finally started it. It pissed me off so bad I DNF’d at 3%. Forget Hillybilly Elegy. This is the book you need to read.
Biggest Disappointment: High Voltage (Fever #10) by Karen Marie Moning ★★★½
Honestly, I had such a great reading month that this one is the closest that would qualify under “disappointment” but it really wasn’t. It was good ol’ Fever fun, featuring Dani O’Malley, and there was, of course, a cliffhanger and of course more books to anticipate. It’s fine. I still love the series… not nearly as much as I used to but I still love it.
