July was a waste when it came to reading. Summer classes kicked my butt and I didn't get through a ton of books (which saddens me beyond belief). I did get through a full series of novels (the Cormoran Strike books by Robert Glabraith - aka JK Rowling), and one short stand alone book. See my thoughts below.



The Cuckoo's CallingThe SilkwormCareer of Evil (Cormoran Strike series) by Robert Galbraith: I went ahead and tossed these all together, because it made the most sense. This series follows veteran and private detective Cormoran Strike and his partner Robin as they solve a series of crimes. It's basically Criminal Minds in book form, and so much more detail. It took me a few chapters to get into the first book, but once I was in - I was in. I could not get enough of the storyline - and I really, really love the two main characters. The stories are smart and really entrancing. I highly recommend.  Book one: 4/5 | Books two and three: 5/5
The Half-Life of Remorse by Grant Jarrett*: I can't say enough how much I was bored by the book. I think the plot wasn't half-bad, but I wasn't a fan of the writing and it all felt very anticlimactic. The story follows three characters who are all tied together is their own special ways, but they don't quite know it yet. It's a story of hope and consequences, but again - the writing was very slow. (full review here) 2/5
