*Please ignore the fact that it is the middle of July and I am only now writing my June Wrap-Up*
I’m sorry that my last post was like half a month ago and in that post I literally said that I was making my return.
I promise that I am back, and that there will be way more posts from me in the coming months! I am officially on summer break now, which means plenty of time for writing!
Anywho, I thought I would begin my writing return by doing my June wrap-up because I actually read some books this month and they were actually good!
I’ve been in like a crazy big reading slump for most of the year and it looks like I’ve finally gotten my mojo back, which is stunning!
So, without further ado, let’s talk about some books!
Throughout the month, I listened to the audiobooks of the Odds Series by Amy Ignatow. This trilogy comprises of The Mighty Odds, Against The Odds, and Odds and Ends, and follows a group of kids who accidentally get
super… okayish-powers, such as being able to teleport… four inches to the left…
What do you get when you mix a sci-fi nerd, a cartoonist, a social outcast, and the most popular girl in school with a mysterious bus crash? Some very specific–and mighty odd–superpowers. Martina can change her eye color; Nick can teleport four inches to the left; Farshad can develop super strength, but only in his thumbs; and Cookie can read minds, when those minds are thinking about directions. Starring a diverse group of kids, this series’ multiple narrators make for a quirky, contemporary read that tackles identity and stereotypes!
This trilogy was literally stunning! I gave each book four stars, but collectively, it is a five star series! The characters are all amazing and the amount of diversity in these books is just to die for! There are so many important topics discussed and I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I loved them! Also, the audiobook narrator for these books is amazing and did such a phenomenal job! 10/10 I recommend!
