So in July I read:

Cress by Marissa Meyer
Rating: A+

I absolutely loved this book. Yes, it is a young adult book and yes I am 25, but I still loved it. 

This is the third book in the Lunar Chronicles series. Each of the books are introduce a new character and that particular characters life is strikingly similar to a fairy tale. If you couldn't tell from the cover, Cress is similar to Rapunzel. Cress (book 1) is similar to Cinderella and Scarlet (book 2) is Little Red Riding Hood.

In a nutshell, these books are the story of unlikely friends who join together to defeat the evil Queen of Lunar. Yes, that is a very simplified version of what the Lunar Chronicles is about, but honestly, these books are an easy read for adults but are still fun and interesting. 

If you are looking for a fun, quick book to pick up for a summer read I would definitely suggest this. You might just get back in touch with your inner child.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Rating: A+

This is a cheer for the underdog type of book. It's romantic and funny with just a hint of sadness thrown in there as well. Definitely a good book to pick up before the fall is upon us again!

Lincoln has started a new job as internet security for a newspaper. He has to read emails and make sure the employees stay in line. However, he can't stop reading Jennifer and Beths emails to each other, nor does he warn them that they should not be emailing. 

Follow Lincoln along as he reads the hilarious emails sent between the two friends and struggles with the moral issues of reading others emails... all while falling in love and having never laid eyes of the email sender.

Now I want to read what you've enjoyed over the past month! Link up with us below!
