Weekend Editions: July Reads


Four books seems to be my average each month. This summer has been crazy busy; between switching jobs and playing on 3 sports leagues, there hasn’t been much time for reading. I’m hoping after this month I’ll be to put more time to reading.

The Gracekeepers by Kristy Logan: I really liked this book. To read my full review, see this post.

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson: Sanderson is one of my favorite authors and he didn’t disappoint in this one. Firefight picks up not long after Steelheart, the first in the series. We get to travel to a new city and get a better understanding of Epics and how they function. I can’t wait to read the next one in this series. If you like action, superhero/villains, and just plain fun, pick up this series.

Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton: ย The premise of this book was interesting. And the magic system. After that, there isn’t many redeeming qualities. I didn’t really care what happened to the three main characters, because they were so obsessed with themselves, it wasn’t even funny. Seekers are pretty much vigilante enforcers slash paid assassins. Sounds neat right? Sure, except you just want to shake all of the characters. There was one secondary character that I found fascinating, so she was another redeeming part of the book.

Zero Sum Game by SL Huang: A main character that is a woman and is a super genius at math and uses it to be a retriever/mercenary? AKA – people would hire her to find or get something and she would do it using her math superskills. While the plot was lacking a bit, this is still a fun(ish) read. There are some heavier points in the plot, but doesn’t detract from it.

What have you been reading lately? All I know is I need to start reading more, as my to-read list is getting crazy long!

      It is quite good! I keep thinking about it even now. That is always a sign of a good book to me when I think about it even after I finish reading it.

        I totally agree. I also find myself finishing and rating a book right away and then a couple days will go by and I’m still thinking of the book. So then I have to rethink the rating I gave it. I guess some books you have to mull over alittle bit.

    The Gracekeepers sound quite interesting!! It’s funny how summer should be the time to read, but most of the time it ends up being busy ๐Ÿ™‚ I usually read more in the winter.
