I am so late doing my July wrap-up and I am so sorry! It would seem YALC has thrown me completely off schedule this month (another post I have yet to write!). But hopefully you guys will think it’s better late than never. As you all have probably grasped from my posts I went to YALC last week and it was amazing! I promise I will be writing a post soon that summaries everything that happened, which was a lot! But for now let me just do a quick wrap up of my July reads.
I read 7 books in July which I don’t think was too bad. Especially because I didn’t read at all over the YALC weekend.
- This Savage Song – I received this book in my Nerdy Bookworm Box and I was so excited to receive it, especially since it had a signed book plate with it. I enjoyed this book as much as Schwab’s earlier books. She definitely did not disappoint. Read my review here.
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue – I love this series! I kind of didn’t want to let it go. But as you can tell by my next read I also didn’t want to drag it out.
- The Raven King – As soon as I finished BL,LB I grabbed The Raven King of my shelf and started reading. I am disappointed that it was over but Blue and her Raven Boys won’t ever leave me. One day I will read this series again and enjoy it just as much the second time around. I did a joint review of those two books here.
4. Inherited – This book was one of TWO books in July’s Fairyloot and I almost jumped for joy. I was a part of the blog tour for this book so to receive the paperback of the book was amazing. Read my review to see what I thought.
5. The Sin Eater’s Daughter – This was another YALC read and I read it in one sitting. It was an easy read and didn’t require too much thought. My review is here.
6. Unicorn Tracks – I have had my eye on this book for awhile so I was pleasantly surprised when the author emailed me asking if she could send me an e-copy to review. Of course I jumped at the chance. This book was also a quick read and I can only wish it was longer. I adored every second I spent in this world and I can’t wait to read the author’s next read. Read my review to find out what I thought of the characters.
7. The Novice – This was the last book I managed to read before YALC and am I glad I chose this one. The world Matharu introduced me to was so intriguing and unique. I can’t wait to read the next in the series. Review here.
Well there we go, my seven reads of July. Not too bad. Let’s see if I can do any better in August. On the plus side on August 1st I reached my Goodreads Challenge score! WOOO! I challenged myself to read 50 books and I did it! I am so happy because I had the same challenge last year and I only read 36. This year I reached my goal and I still have 5 months to go. I have the online book community to thank for it. You guys have renewed my love for reading that had begun to wane. Bookstagram, Twitter and book blogs have shown me a whole new world of loving books and I have had a blast! So thank you!!
