Day 30: #e

I‘m a day late (it‘s officially July now, wow!!), but here‘s the last prompt. I‘m excited to get to this Alien Huntress series because it seems equally gritty and sexy 😘

Divergent | Veronica Roth

#30JuneBooks

Day 28: #favorite

The Divergent series is definitely a nostalgic favorite of mine. I think I can say that I‘m one of the few readers who thought the ending (of the series itself) was a good (though unbearably sad) one. It was definitely unexpected 😩

Day 27: #dnf

This book was one I received on NetGalley, and although I did read the whole thing, I came very close to deleting it many times. I sorta rage-read until the end because I was determined to finish. This book genuinely did not make any sense. The author tried too hard to make it complex but only managed to make it hella confusing 😒👎🏻

Day 15: #booksource

I have a few main sources for my book purchases: Thriftbooks (because they‘re so cheap), my public library (to borrow books and also to buy books from their FOR SALE section), and Amazon (for speedy delivery and decent costs). Every once in a while I‘ll buy books from Barnes and Noble, but usually only when I have a gift card - they‘re WAY too expensive nowadays 😞
