Unearthed After Sunset (Cereus Vampire Chronicles, Book One) by Lauryn April

Book Description (via Goodreads): When Greg Erickson is killed by sultry and seductive vampire Lila, he wakes up cold and alone in a wooden box. After clawing his way out, he finds himself thrust into a vampire turf war, unsure of exactly whose side he’s on and why he’s fighting. Greg discovers that it’s not easy to be human one day and hunting humans the next. While his new vampire cohorts push him to accept his newfound existence, there’s one girl from his human life he’s unable to forget. Caroline Christensen lived a normal life once. Then her brother was killed by vampires and her family legacy as a vampire hunter was handed down to her. When she meets Greg at a bar one night, they both feel an immediate connection. Then Greg discovers Caroline’s secret and she worries he’ll never talk to her again. She soon finds out that he has a very different reason for not calling – he’s dead. Now Greg has become Caroline’s target, but can she bring herself to kill him? Greg, however, isn’t Caroline’s only concern. The vampires are battling one another, and Caroline is determined to find out what they’re fighting over.

Lucid World by Denise Lammi Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): When 15 year-old Morgan is contacted by the advanced civilisation of Lucid World, she has no idea what is to come. She is one of a select group of teens chosen to travel via avatar into a remote, and hidden technologically-advanced society housed inside a vast mountain cavern. Here she learns about an emotional disease called khaos, that has infected all of humanity. Her new friends in Lucid World live under a dome beneath an ice cap, with cats, culture, and a harmonious way of life uninflected by the khaos of the world above. Those living on earth now are in what they call Nosos World. Shifting from Morgan’s family and school life to the education she receives in Lucid World, the story shows Morgan applying the understandings of khaos to problems in her life, and in the town. While Morgan’s everyday life in Coyote Flats continues to unfold, her family and friends have no inkling of her Lucid World contact. But when communication breaks down, Morgan’s secret is exposed.

August Wrap Up

Once again, I’ve fallen behind with the schedule which I really want to keep track of! I feel as though I need to wait for a year to go by until I’m in a routined situation! Plus, my keyboard on my laptop is not working so I need to get that up and running because I prefer to right my blog posts on my laptop rather than my phone.

Without further ado, I shall move onto the topic of this blog post which is my book wrap up of August. I read five books in the month of August which I was seemingly impressed with myself for especially as the previous couple of months beforehand I averaged around two books per month.

The five books I managed to read were called:

  • The Forgotten One by Debbra Lynn, I gave this book five out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here
  • A Fool’s Circle by Suzanne Seddon, I gave this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here
  • Season of Retribution by Shanna Nichols, I gave this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here
  • The Colour of the Sun by David Almond, I gave this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here
  • Maroonhair: A Cyber-City Story by Sebastian Winter, I gave this book two out of five stars ⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here

I started a book called Lucid World by Denise Lammi at the end of August and am still currently reading it at the moment, so I can feel that September isn’t going to be a great reading month but I’m going to try and read as much as I can throughout the rest of the month.

I hope you all had a good August and are having an even better September!

How many books did you read in the month of August? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy reading,
