"A month full of books is a monthly well traveled."

Hola there! It’s the 30th of June today that means it's monthly wrap up today. Within this month I’ve only read 3 books since school have been busy and if I have time my couch potato laziness self would kick in. I would try to finish at least 5 books next month. I hope so.

So the first book that I read is entitle I am the messenger by Markus Zusak it’s a fiction book.

"Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are."

My full name’s Ed Kennedy. I’m nineteen. I’m an underage cabdriver. I’m typical of many of the young men you see in this suburban outpost of the city not a whole lot of prospects or possibility. That aside, I read more books than I should, and I’m decidedly crap at sex and doing my taxes. Nice to meet you.

It’s my first time reading Zusak books and honestly I have a high expectation of it since a lot of people says that it’s a good entertaining book. And he didn’t disappoint me I read it and just the first page of it I was already hooked. It’s hilarious and that’s what I love about it. So if you wanna know about this book more, then just read my reviews since I’ve made a book review of Zusak books that I have which is “The book thief and I am the messenger” there I’m gonna elaborate more about the book.


The second book that I read is Evening Star by Catherine Coulter.

This book is a historical fiction and a romance novel.
The book is one of Catherine Coulter Star series together with Midnight star, Wild star and Jade star. (pic)
Giana Van Cleve, the heroine, has fallen in love with a vicious fortune hunter. Her mother, the renowned shipowner and builder Aurora Van Cleve, is desperate to save her daughter. She agrees to support Giana's wedding if Giana agrees to first spend an unusual three months in Rome with her Uncle Daniele. But Giana's uncle takes his bargain far beyond Aurora ever imagined.

Thus, Giana first sees Alex Saxton not in a society drawing room, but in a brothel. The next time she sees him, she is one of the virgins to be sold to the highest bidder at the infamous Roman Flower Auction. He wins the bid and her but not for long.

The book is good I’ve finished reading it for 2 days. It has full romance in it and I the thing that got me interested in it is the situation of the heroine girl after she goes to this one summer then everything in her changes. I find it unique compare to other romance novel.

The 3rd book that I read is The book thief by Markus Zusak. It’s a historical fiction and a young adult fiction.

“I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn't already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”

Just as expected his other book got my mind blown again. This book is like my favorite of favorites. It’s just masterpiece, everything in it. I love the writing style of this book so much. And the fact that the Death is the one who narrate the story
I just can’t handle this book.

I do not carry a sickle or a scythe.
I only wear a hooded black robe when it’s cold.
And I don’t have those skull-like
facial features you seem to enjoy
pinning on me from a distance. You
want to know what I truly look like?
I’ll help you out. Find yourself a mirror while I continue.

Ok before I get carried away and spill the beans of these books, I’m gonna end this monthly wrap up now but if you want some more details about the book then read my review of it.
