Rebecca is a strange yet fascinating and surprising read. I expected less from it, but was pleased with the quality of writing and plot that the novel gave me.

She arrives at his house and is confronted by the impact that his dead wife has had on the employees of the Manderley mansion.

It’s August now! I started back at university yesterday and I cannot believe that it’s my last semester. I’m really bummed about that. Anyway, let’s get into all the books I read in July and what I plan to read in August.
Emily Duran is the only survivor of a plane crash that left her stranded in the Amazon jungle. Along with five other of her classmates, she spent her days struggling against the harsh conditions and dealing with their different views on how to survive. In their unique predicament, a new way of living is discovered filled with power struggles, betrayals, secrets and lies. When Emily is rescued, she must explain to everyone why she is the last left alive.

I don’t think I’ve read a kid’s book since I was an actual kid so I can barely remember what they are about, but here are five nonetheless.
