Books Read: 11
I meant to get caught-up on my reviews during my stay-at-home vacation in August, but I decided that naps and board games were more important. I’m hoping to get back on track in September.
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Series: Reckoners #1
This was our book club pick for July, which I was pretty excited about since Sanderson has been on my TBR pile for years. Unfortunately, I couldn’t really get into it. The world building was pretty awesome, but the main character, David, and his love interest/crush, Megan, drove me insane. Every time Megan opened her mouth was like nails on a chalkboard to me. While I won’t be continuing with the series, I’ll give some of Sanderson’s other stuff a shot.

- I don’t care who you are. This American Horror Story season 6 teaser trailer is terrifying as hell and I wish YouTube would stop subjecting me to it. All I want to do is watch Mystery Science Theater 3,000. Not have nightmares of this doll crawling toward me across the ceiling a la Trainspotting.
