Wrap UP | 7 in 7

Wrap Up

Wow, what a readathon! I have to say I am very impressed that I did so well with this readathon, especially since I failed the last one I attempted. Anyway, I figured I would share the books I read over this past week. If you want to know more about these books please go and visit my TBR post, TBR | 7 in 7.

This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki, Jillian Tamaki

18302455

Overall, I liked this graphic novel. The art was beautiful and the theme itself was a great fit. But, one downside I would have to say of this is that at times it can be slow and draggy. For me, I find it difficult to find a graphic novel slow because you have constant dialect and images to look at. So when I started to feel that way towards this it bummed me out a bit. Rating:3/5 Stars

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Awesome graphic novel, I have been hearing about it on and off for a while and it was always good so I picked it up from the library. It did not disappoint me at all. I loved the story and the art style. Rating: 5/5 Stars

My Favorite Thing Is Monsters by Emil Ferris

I had such high hopes for this graphic novel. I have been hearing such good things, maybe the hype overpowered it for me? Not to sure. I found the art work to be cluttered and the writing to be difficult to read. I love the concept of this, so if I were you I would look into it and see if it is for you. Rating: 3/5 Stars

Poems Selected by Himself by Robert Graves

During this readathon I headed to an independent bookstore. Lately, I have been reading more and more poetry and decided to pick up a collection. I am not sure where I heard of Robert Graves, but I had his name written down in my notes so I searched for his works. I was shocked when I was only able to find this collection from the 1960s. I hope to find more of his works in the future, because I think his writing is wonderful. If I were you I would look up his name and read a few of his poems. Rating: 5/5 Stars

And It Came to Pass by Laura Stone

18302455

The one full novel I was able to read, I was given this title via netgalley and I have written a full review which you can find here:REVIEW | And It Came to Pass by Laura Stone. Rating: 4/5 Stars.


Well, there you have it my 7 in 7 wrap up. Overall, I think I did a good job. I read a total of 5 books and read 1,400 pages.
