Recap|| July.

julyrecep

Hi!

July is gone already? The months are just flying by this month. It was a good month for me in my real life and with reading. I was in a bit of a slump, but I was able to read five books, which is nice. ALSO! I reached over 900 followers in July, which is totally awesome! Thank you guys so much for following me and liking my posts. 🙂

Now onto my recap of what I read in July. You can find a full list of these books and the other books I read this year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts for them if I did a review.

Physically Read Books:
These are the books that I read by myself (not audiobooks) throughout the month of July.

History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera – 3.5 out of 5 stars.
I really enjoyed History Is All You Left Me. It was so sad and heartbreaking, but still so good! There were a few times throughout that I was bored, but I was also battling a reading slump while trying to finish this book before it returned to my library so maybe that played a role. Overall though I really liked this story and the characters. The friendship between Griffin, Theo, and Wade was perfect.

Mirror Me by Tara St. Pierre – Review – 4 out of 5 stars.
I really enjoyed Mirror Me. It was fun, it was creepy, and it kept me guessing. Great characters and friendships. There were times that it was so hard to put down, because I just wanted to know what was happening to Hannah. Feel free to check out my review for more.

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness – 3 out of 5 stars.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here…WTF DID I READ? I loved the characters. I loved the friendships. The story was really freaking weird though. I’m not entirely sure what to make of it, to be honest. Such a strange book.

When It’s Real by Erin Watt – 5 out of 5 stars.
I flew through When It’s Real in two days. I loved to book so freaking much! It was such a fun book and it had me laughing out loud throughout the entire thing. I loved Oakley and Vaughn. I might have a review for this one coming.

Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert – 3 out of 5 stars.
I have some mixed feelings about Little & Lion. While it was a good story and had so much diversity in it, I wasn’t completely sold on it. I liked the characters, but also I didn’t connect with them as much as I would have liked. I felt like there was something missing and I wanted more. I still liked it though. Full review to come soon.

What did you read in July? Have you read any of the books that in July? Feel free to link me to your wrap up posts, so I can check them out!

August is looking like an almost all ARC month for me. I have quite a few ARCs that I’ve been sent that are releasing in August/September, so I have to start on those ASAP! The plus side, that means a lot more reviews coming. I’ve been slacking on them this year with other books I’ve read that haven’t been ARCs, so hopefully I’ll get back into doing more reviews for other/non-ARC books.

In case you missed it;

I hope you have a great day!

  3. Congrats on the 900 followers! I pretty much felt the same about The Rest Of Us Just Live Here… When I finished it my exact thoughts were: ‘what the hell did I just read?’. Not my favorite Ness but I’m hoping the Chaos Walking books will get me back on track. 😉 I hope your August will be awesome!

    • Thank you! 🙂 Yeahh!! I had no clue what I was reading and I think that’s why I didn’t like it as much. I was just so confused by what it actually was, lol. I couldn’t tell if it was real or fake and I just wanted to know what was happening and whether it was real or fake and I feel like I never got an answer, lol. Such a strange book. HAHA.
