July Wrap-up!

      In the month of July I read 7 books! I am happy with the books I finished and I am ready to share them with you.


      The first book I read was Reboot by Amy Tintera. This is a Dystopian novel told from Wren Connolly's perspective. When she was shot and killed five years ago she came back stronger, faster, and less human. She is now a Reboot. Reboots become less human the longer they stay dead. Wren 178 is the longest time ever recorded. She is now a soldier. When she starts training Callum 22, one of the shortest times, he is slower and always smiling. When he doesn't follow an order Wren is given one chance to get him in line or she will have to execute him herself. She has started to fall for him and she will do anything to keep him alive. She is done following orders.


        The next book I read was a re-read for me and that was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling. If you haven't read this series I highly recommend you do!


        Next, I read Slammed by Colleen Hoover. I love love love this book, and I don't know why I haven't picked up the sequel yet. Its about a girl named Layken who moves to Michigan with her family after her fathers death. She runs into her neighbor Will Cooper who is attractive, hilarious, and slams poetry. They have a special connection after only the first date which was completely swoon worthy. This special connection is but through a tornado after a surprising discovery that forces them not to be together. Will they ever be able to be together again? Did I mention I love this book?


        I also picked up On the Fence by Kasie West. This follows the story of Tomboy Charlie who can outrun and outscore any boy. She has three brothers and a neighbor who might as well be a brother. She gets a speeding ticket and her father forces her to get a job to pay for it. She starts working at a boutique but she doesn't know anything about being a girl. She starts having late night chats with her neighbor Brayden at the fence. She also starts to fall head over heels for him. If she reveals her secret about being a little girly to him will she lose him forever?


        Lastly, I read the first three books of The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This is one of my new favorite series. It tells the story of Katy Swartz who moves to West Virginia only to discover her neighbors are aliens! I cant tell you anymore without giving everything away. The fifth book comes out August 5, 2014.

     When I was first asked to do this post, I had a completely different theme planned. But in light of recent events that have happened in my personal life, I knew the only thing that seemed relevant was Friendship. If I could have a Loot Crate with anything I ever wanted inside, friendship seems like the perfect theme.


Item #1     As a proud book blogger, I couldn't have a subscription box without a book. When it came to the topic of friendship the first book that came to my mind was none o…
