My Year in Reading: Cassie-la’s July 2015 Wrap Up

July 2015 Reading List

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy: The Evil We Love by Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman

I’m halfway through the spin-off collection that bridges the gap between Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments and her upcoming The Dark Artifices. In this short, Clare offers a flashback to a Marauders-era Hogwarts to see what the future Death Eaters are up to.

Big Ass Shark by Briar Lee Mitchell

A fun, easy beach read, Big Ass Shark was an eBook I purchased in order to properly celebrate Shark Week. It’s about exactly what you think it is and reads like your typical B-horror movie fair, but honestly, that’s not always a bad thing. [READ FULL REVIEW]

The Walking Dead Vol. 24: Life and Death by Robert Kirkman

Things that are infinitely better than AMC’s The Walking Dead: Robert Kirkman’s comic book series The Walking Dead. The latest arc in the series starts with a massive time jump and ends with the death of a lot of your faves.

They’re Not Like Us Vol. 1: Black Holes for the Young by Eric Stephenson

This new series follows a group of attractive young people who possess powerful gifts. In order to live in the idyllic world these super-powered humans have created for themselves they must tie up all their loose ends, including their parents. Interesting premise, but not sure if I’ll be continuing.

Wolverine: Old Man Logan by Mark Millar

It took me six years, but I finally took the time to read Old Man Logan and I’m so sad I waited this long. If you’re a fan of Wolverine, terrifying Marvel alternate universes where everyone is dead or just want to catch up before you read Secret Wars: Old Man Logan, do it now.

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

I’m calling it now: this lush retelling of One Thousand and One Nights is one of my top reads of the year. As loathe as I am to use this phrase to describe a book: it was unputdownable. True story. Read it and read it now.

Hawkeye Vol. 4: Rio Bravo by Matt Fraction

Matt Fraction has finally finished his inventive run of the Hawkeye series and it was well worth the extended wait. I have yet to dive into the All New Hawkeye series but I hope it lives up to its predecessor even a tiny bit.

The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins

It took me a while to finally delve into this ARC (mostly because the content was heavy and worthy of a slow read), but I really enjoyed the blending of genres and the bizarre plot. If you want a fantasy that is horrifying, funny, absurd and weird, this is the book for you. [READ FULL REVIEW]

Saga Vol. 5 by Brian K. Vaughan

There are a lot of great comic book series out in the world right now, but Saga is definitely one of the best. Even all the way into its fifth volume it’s still as engrossing and shocking as it was when I picked up issue one.

Heart of Tin by Danielle Paige

This prequel in the Dorothy Must Die series follows her loyal defender the Tin Man and seeks to explain just how he went from a love-able rust bucket with a brand new heart to a twisted metal monster.
