Undead Monthly

Check out what you’ve missed in the last month!

July has quickly gone by! Geez, it’s August already. That means exams are coming here in the Philippines, so I guess you’ll be seeing less of Aimee, Dyan and Marga. *sadface*

Plus, we didn’t have a lot of posts up this July because of school and reading slumps.

Undead Monthly-Highlights

• Aimee and Dyan looked for a co-blogger and ended up finding two awesome people!
• You weren’t able to attend Stephanie Perkins’ signing in the PH? Here’s a recap!


Undead Monthly-Featurer

Addicted for Now (Addicted, #2)

Addicted for Now by Krista & Becca Ritchie
maybe a review to come at The Social Potato

This is one of those very rare occasions where my book of the month will be a new adult novel. It seems that most of the YA novels I read this month were either just good or mediocre. Anyway, this one just gave me all the feels. It wasn’t a perfect book or anything, but it made me laugh and tear up like crazy. -Aimee


The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Again, Dyan hasn’t reviewed this but you can check out Aimee’s Goodreads or blog review

In the four books that I’ve read this month, I feel that The Winners Curse by Marie Rutkoski was the best. I admired the world-building and the plot. I like female characters who are smart and can take care of themselves, and that is exactly what Kestrel is! The love between Arin and Kestrel definitely earned some bonus points! – Dyan


Dangerous Boys

The suspense and mystery elements were so darn good and it just knocked the socks off of me! -Zoe


Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2)

Crown of Midnight is my favorite read for this month because of the author’s amazing writing style. I love the characters and the world building! It has shocking twists and some turn of events actually stopped my heart from beating. Yeah, that’s too much, but you know what I mean. ;) JUST. PLAIN. AWESOME.

    You girls read some awesome books! And I don’t know if you’re looking forward to Opposition, but I AM, Hahaha! Daemon is like my guilty pleasure. And wow, Aimee! Your birthday is coming!!!! I must wait for that post. An I already welcomed them but.. WELCOME AGAIN ZOE AND MARGARITA! <3


  2. Oooh, good luck with exams, girls! You’ll ace all of them, I’m sure :) *high fives* ADDICTED FOR NOW. THAT IS ALL. *dies* Zoeeeee! I’m going to read Dangerous Girls soon-ish :) Nick gifted me a copy and I can’t wait to crack its spine. Though not literally since *shudders* cracked spines? NO. Marga! We’re so going to love Opposition. We HAVE to. JLA will bring the feels, I’m sure :) And yay Dyan! I hope you enjoy Isla and Josh’s swoony romance :)


  3. ISLA ISLA ISLA ISLA ISLA ISLA ISLA OH MY GOODNESS I CANNOT WAIT (although I suppose I might have to). July has gone so quickly! Actually, the whole year has really :) I also really want to read Dangerous Girls because I’ve heard soooo much about it. Happy August everyone!


  4. I am so excited to read Addicted For Now. I miss Lily and Lo and the whole gang. It has been a while since I last read anything related to them :((( The Winner’s Curse is a really compelling read. It made my fave books for 2014. I hope to read Abigail Haas’s books soon!

    *screams* OPPOSITION *grabby hands* So darn excited for this finale. I just hope it won’t disappoint me like what happened to her Covenant Series. :P Glad to hear you guys had a good month! Looking forward to the upcoming reviews.

    Advance happy birthday, Aimee! Yay *throws confettis*


  5. You guys read some awesome books this month with CoM, Winners Curse, Addicted for Now and Dangerous Boys, wow! I am going to pick up Dangerous Boys soon but I just finished Addicted To You and I loved it so much, it was amazing. I’m going to be addicted to the series lol.


  6. Yeah, I know what you mean about those blasted exams :P I’m just glad I’m done with those! Is your school quarterly, too? I remember having exams in August (First Quarter), then in October, then in December, and then in March… Woot, fun times.


  7. Yay for monthly summaries! They’re so much fun (: I’m basically a huge stalker so I love seeing all what all my bloggy friends have gotten up to during the month. Omg, can’t believe it’s August too :o School starts for me in September though. Good luck with exams ladies! I definitely get so stressed out over those, but I hope y’all can just take a breather and be well prepared. I feel ya on reading slumps also, everything I’ve been reading lately has been in the 3-3.5 range and it makes me so unexcited to pick up more books.

    Wooo Dangerous Boys! I really do need that one in my hands. Loved Dangerous Girls so much, and can’t wait to see the review of it on this blog. I also loved Crown of Midnight, much more than Throne of Glass that’s for sure. I hope Heir of Fire will bring more of the awesomeness that was Crown of Midnight.

    I’m super excited for Isla and the Happily Ever After of course :D Stephanie just writes the most adorable and squee worthy romances. I’m also excited for Opposition, the Lux series is a little bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. Gates of Thread and Stone also looks super interesting, that cover is super gorgeous omg (:

    Loved this recap ladies! Can’t wait to see more from The Deadly Darlings.


  8. I’m so excited for Gates of Thread and Stone! :O :O :O Also, Dangerous Boys looks so great, I read Zoe’s review and it was fab. Best of luck in your exams, girls! Only 1 more month until we Canadian people go back to school as well. :P


  9. I will wait for the day that you meet your Daemon Aimee! I’m gonna be so happy when you meet him. Haha :D I can’t wait for Opposition as well!

    BTW, for a blog with three students, you guys had done a lot! :D Happy for you guys :D


  10. Finally Isla!! After all this time (Always! – just my HP moment. Keep calm and carry on). But I’m so glad you enjoyed Crown of Midnight it was JUST.PLAIN.AWESOME. But I need to see your review for The Winner’s Curse! I’m looking at you Dyan (I have read Aimee’s). Great post, girls! :)


  11. Drat! August is the stress month because of exams. I’ve never been this glad that I’m not studying anymore. xD Best of luck for your tests, guys! And yaaaay! August means Isla is coming to town. I can’t even think straight anymore because in like 2 weeks, I’ll be getting my hands on a copy. *flails* I really got to start on Sarah J. Maas’ series. I feel so left out. Have a great August, girls! :)


  12. This is my first time visiting your all’s blog and can I just say that it’s ADORABLE. I love the name and theme! <3
    The Addicted series is one I want to read ASAP – I have all the books on my Kindle, so I'm just waiting for a good time to start it. I've heard amazing things! And I've been stalking the authors on twitter/tumblr, so even though I'm not a huge fan of NA, the way they talk about their characters makes me think I'll like them a lot.
    I'm reading The Winner's Curse right now – fingers crossed I agree with the hype. :)
    August is all about Daemon and Katy – I can't believe it's their last book!

  13. Good luck on your exams, girls! Wow, you girls are very organized. You already have scheduled blog post for this month. I still struggle to keep up with my blogs lately. I’m adding The Winner’s Curse and Dangerous Boys on my list too.

    PS: Advanced happy birthday, Aimee!
