I can't believe it's already time to finish up the Summer TBR Wipeout, hosted by The Candid Cover! After my last update, I had three books left on my TBR for this challenge, and I was really looking forward to them!
The Sweetest Kind of Fate by Crystal Cestari is just such a sweet and adorable book. It's the second book in the Windy City Magic duology and it's about a teenager who's also a matchmaker. I love all the magical realism in these books: you have high school students doing regular things, like applying to college and working after-school jobs, but there's also mermaids and sirens and witches. Friendship, love, and family are all themes of this book, without being too heavy on the drama. Highly recommend!
Then I moved onto Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I don't know why it took me so long to read this book; I remember seeing the movie and enjoying it, and I always thought the cover looked cool, and a bit creepy. I enjoyed the world building in this book and the way the author incorporated all the old photographs. Even though the story took a long time to get going, I still liked this one.
The End We Start From by Megan Hunter was my last, and shortest, read for this challenge. At only 134 pages, I flew through this book in less than two hours. Basically, it's kind of a dystopian/post-apocalyptic book that focuses on a woman who has just given birth when flood waters rise exponentially and she is forced to flee her home. The writing is very sparse and straightforward, and the juxtaposition of the massive changes in the environment and civilization versus a mother watching her child grow was pretty cool.
So, that's it! The Summer TBR Wipeout 2018 is complete! I'm so glad I did this challenge and knocked 9 books off my TBR!
