1.  The Witch Must Burn by Danielle Paige

Rating: 4/5

I thought this was a pretty good novella and I enjoyed it a lot. I gave it four stars because I felt like it wasn’t as well put together.

2. The Wizard Returns by Danielle Paige

Rating: 4/5

I gave this novella a four out of five stars, because I felt like it didn’t have enough to reach that five stars. I did enjoy it, but not enough to give it five stars.

heart-if-tin

3. Heart of Tin by Danielle Paige

Rating: 3/5

I didn’t enjoy this novella as much. I thought it was very slow and some parts seemed a little childish to me. I also thought the Tin Man was a tad confusing at points.

Rating: 4/5

I thought this novella was pretty good. I didn’t think it was worth five stars, but I still liked reading it.

5. Ruler of Beasts by Danielle Paige

Rating: 4/5

I liked this novella a lot. I really enjoy hearing from all the different point of views. It’s very helpful and interesting to see why everything is the way it is.

order-of-the-wicked

6. Order of the Wicked by Danielle Paige

Rating: 3/5

I thought this novella was kind of slow and boring compared to the others. However, I did really enjoy seeing all the different perspectives. These novellas really helped me get a better understanding of the series.

7. Ghosts of the McBride House by Cecilia Back

Rating: 3.5/5

I thought this was a pretty good book, however I was expecting it to be a little more interesting. I thought it was a little boring at times. I thought it was an easy read and it was pretty refreshing.

8. Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

Rating: 4/5

I really enjoyed this book and thought it was very well written. I gave this book four stars, because I didn’t like how slow it could be at some parts and I thought the ending was bad. It didn’t leave you on a cliff hanger which is what I was expecting. I didn’t like where it left off, but I did like the story it told.

9. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Rating: 3/5

I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. I heard so many amazing things about it and I had such high hopes for this novel, but in the end it didn’t reach my expectations. I thought this book was very confusing and I just didn’t enjoy it too much, the ending was better though.

10. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Rating: 4/5

I decided to give this book four stars in the end. I did enjoy this book a lot, but I felt like it was missing something to give it that five stars. I would read this book again and I thought it was very interesting.

11. America’s Coach by Ross Bernstein

Rating: 3.5/5

I really enjoyed this book! I love reading about Herb Brooks and thought this book was amazing, however it was slow at times and seemed to repeat itself a lot. Other than that it was a good read.

12. Half Brother by Kenneth Oppel

Rating: 3.5/5

I thought this was a good novel, but there were some things I didn’t enjoy about it. I felt that the main character, Ben, didn’t really grow with his age. I also felt that in the end some things seemed to resemble some of the more recent Planet of the Apes movies. I still thought it was a pretty good book though since it was a middle grade book.

That’s my July Wrap-Up I hope y’all enjoyed it! I had an amazing reading month even though most of what I read were novellas!
