The longer I’ve been writing book reviews, the more confused I get with my own rating system.
Rating are hard. I really struggle with them. Since I use Goodreads a lot (shameless plug- add me as a friend), I wanted to keep things consistent and rate every book out of 5 stars. However, with so many people rating books from 1-5 stars, everyone now has their own meaning behind what a 5 star/3 star/1 star book is. Even my own meaning has changed.
So, for the sake of clarification, I want to explain what my ratings mean, and give some examples for each!
I think I finally did it. I think I beat my reading slump.
It only took me… five months. But I did it!!!
July was a surprisingly good month for me. At this point, I had given up all hope and thought that I would never regain the motivation to read like I had, but then came The Reading Rush.
Readathons scare me. A lot. So I had never done one before. I never liked the idea of pushing myself to read as much as possible, because I thought it would inevitably cause me to burn myself out.
Looks like I was wrong.

Review in a Nutshell: Wicked Fox is a fun read, great for fans of k-dramas or paranormal romance, but otherwise may not be worth it.
“Night and darkness made a believer of everyone.”

Wicked Fox follows Miyoung, who is half-human, half gumiho (nine-tailed fox). To survive, she must feed off of men’s gi every full moon, but Miyoung doesn’t want to be a killer. When she sees a stranger, Jihoon, being attacked by a goblin, she saves him, but in the process, she loses her fox bead- a magical bead that grants control over who to whoever holds it. However, when she tries to reunite with her bead, the results only cause more problems.

I feel like BookCon and BookExpo really threw me off this year. It’s already June! And almost mid-June! For some reasons my head is still stuck in May, and early May at that.
But despite the fact that I’m way behind, let’s talk about some of the awesome books being released this month!
