Read Last Week:
Last week was the #TBRTakedown readathon and I am actually happy with how I did. Usually I completely fail at read-a-thons but this time I read almost all the books I had picked out for the challenges. I got a late start on the read-a-thon because I had a headache during the weekend, so I had to use Monday to finish Sing You Home. I wasn’t even half way through it so it took me most of Monday to read. I didn’t even get to start Spiral Hunt, the first book I planned on reading for the read-a-thon, until Tuesday. So considering I started a day late, I am super happy and surprised that I read four out of the five books I planned on reading. Here is what I read:
- Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult
- Spiral Hunt (Evie Scelan #1) by Margaret Ronald
- Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow by Tommy Donbavand
- Flame (Sky Chasers #3) by Amy Kathleen Ryan
- Attack on Titan, Vol. 1 by Hajime Isayama
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
A long, hot summer…
That’s what Macy has to look forward to while her boyfriend, Jason, is away at Brain Camp. Days will be spent at a boring job in the library, evenings will be filled with vocabulary drills for the SATs, and spare time will be passed with her mother, the two of them sharing a silent grief at the traumatic loss of Macy’s father.
But sometimes, unexpected things can happen—things such as the catering job at Wish, with its fun-loving, chaotic crew. Or her sister’s project of renovating the neglected beach house, awakening long-buried memories. Things such as meeting Wes, a boy with a past, a taste for Truth-telling, and an amazing artistic talent, the kind of boy who could turn any girl’s world upside down. As Macy ventures out of her shell, she begins to question her sheltered life.
Is it really always better to be safe than sorry?
