underrated book recommendations

If you are not familiar with monthly recs, Trina & Rayna run a Goodreads group where they have new topics every month. If you wanna check it out, here is the group. It's a great group with tons of different readers, so you'll definitely get a lot of good book recommendations.

This month is underrated books and I am so excited because I LOVE talking about underrated books. The seven that I chose all have under 10,00 ratings/reviews on Goodreads, so that's how I consider them "underrated." Anyways, here are my recs!

Monthly Favorites | July 2018

I realize I haven't done a favorites post in actual months which kind of sucks, but I mean it's definitely not surprising. I have always loved reading (and watching) monthly favorites because they always give me ideas on thing to try, books to read, shows to watch, etc.

If you are interested in my last favorites (which was in April, oops) you can head on over and check it out!

july wrap up

How the heck it is already August I do not know. This year is going by WAY too fast and it needs to slow down. I have too many books to read and not enough time! Come on 2018, help your girl out.

Anyways, this month I only read 6 books. I am a little disappointed with how little I read considering summer is almost over and real life is going to take over again, but I also spent a lot of July with friends and family which I am really happy about. I also thoroughly enjoyed all of the books I read this month so that's awesome! Let's jump into the actual wrap up.

Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

Amazon | Goodreads 

Thank you so much to my work for an ARC of this book! RELEASES: September 4, 2018

[summary]: A gripping novel about the depth of a sister's love; poised to be the next book you won't be able to stop talking about.
A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial-like podcast following the clues she's left behind. 

Sadie hasn't had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she's been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.
But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie's entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister's killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him.
When West McCray—a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America—overhears Sadie's story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie's journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it's too late.

 "And it begins, as so many stories do, with a dead girl."

Review: FuryBorn by Claire Legrand

Amazon | Goodreads 

[Summary]: When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first.
A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable--until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world--and of each other.

"We all have darkness inside us, Rielle. That is what it means to be human."
