This month I read 13 books. All though this probably sounds like a lot, it is the least amount of books I've read in a month so far this year. I'm fine with this, however, since I have exams this month (my last one is tomorrow...YAY!!!) I didn't have as much time to read as I usually do. But, I'm on my semester break for uni throughout July so I plan on reading A LOT!

Out of the thirteen books I read, the genres I read were;
Classic; 1
Sci-Fi; 2
Fantasy; 2
Dystopia; 1
Contemporary; 6
Mystery/crime; 1
Safe to say I'm in a massive contemporary mood, and I cant wait to read even more contemporaries in July!

Six of the books I read this month were sent to me for review, so I will link all the blog reviews and YouTube reviews down below!
My average rating this month was

Now to the books I read:

Through the Looking Glass - C.S. Lewis: This was my classic read for the month. I have never been a massive Alice in Wonderland fan, but after reading this I really enjoyed it and I'm eager to watch the movie! I finished it in one bus trip, so it was a nice quick and easy read.

The Last Star - Rick Yancey; The third and final book to the 5th Wave trilogy. I really enjoyed it and thought that it wrapped up the series nicely. I had a few minor issues with the ending (just my personal taste) but overall it was a great book

The Crown - Kiera Cass: The fifth and final book to The Selection series sent to me for review. I was enjoying this book until it reached the end...I wanted to scream! I'm dissappointed with how this series ended as the book also felt too rushed. I had so many thoughts I did a ten minute review video!

City of Ashes and City of Glass - Cassandra Clare: I'm really enjoying this series and can't wait to continue. Although I was in a real contemporary mood this month, these books were an exception. And the ending to CoG!!!!

PS I Still Love You - Jenny Han: Probably the best book I read all month. I read TATBILB at the beginning of the year and LOVED it... this one was even better. Lara Jean and Peter are just GOALS and I cannot wait for the next book to be released next year.

Generation Next - Oli White: I love Oli's YouTube channel so I decided to check his book out. It was a good read - the story line was interesting and focused on teenage years and venturing into the world.

The Moonlight Dreamers - Siobhan Curham: This was sent to me to review and is a lovely story about teenage girls being who they are. It focused a lot on friendships rather than the 'typical' contemporary romance.

Second Chance Summer - Morgan Matson: My first MM book and I loved it! I laughed, I cried, and I cannot wait to read more of her books. The romance, the friendships and the family relationships really made this book a great read.

Breathing Under Water - Sophie Hardcastle: Another amazing book which was sent to me to review. I finished this in about 6 hours because I couldn't put it down. I've added this to some of my favourite books of 2016.

The Twisted Knot - J.M. Peace: This was sent to me by Pan Macmillan as part of a blog tour. Its a murder mystery and crime adult book. It was a good read; nice and quick filled with mystery and suspense.

When Michael Met Mina - Randa Abdel-Fattah: Such an amazing read that talked about the serious issue of Asylum Seekers in Australia. Definitely relevant with what's going on at the moment and I loved how it covered it in YA literature.
