July Wrap Up and Book Haul(s)

I’ve had a pretty good reading month in July. Better than I’ve had in a long time.

Read and Reviewed I read six books this month:

The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen 4.5/5 Review

The Lesser Dead by Christopher Buehlman 5/5  Review (This was easily my standout read for the month!)

A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin (Audiobook) 4/5 Review

Papertowns by John Green 3/5 Review

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh 4.5/5 Review 

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray – Review to come closer to release (but I can tell you now that it was awesome!)

I also reviewed two books which I read ages ago but only just got around to transferring the reviews over from Tumblr.

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn 3.5/5 stars Review Cypulchre by Joe McKinnon 3/5 stars Review.

Book Hauls So, earlier in the month I posted my July Book Haul Part One: IMG_4310 (2)_edited Yeah that’s a lot of books for just the first half of July, isn’t it? Like an utterly crazy amount of books. And now let me introduce you to Part Two: IMG_4755 (2)_edited oh and Part Three: IMG_4747 (2)_edited I got some super awesome books this month. (A big thank you to Paul Ikin for the beautiful hardback of The Other Side of Eve, Walker Books for the finished copy of The Rest of Us Just Live Here, Bloomsbury Aus for Where the Stars Still Shine, and Allen & Unwin for The Looking Glass House). Man I am so spoiled! You can see more pretty pictures here

Oh! I also got a Facebook page!!! (the other social media kept telling me to). So come along and give me a like maybe?

My August TBR IMG_4761_edited So that’s a pretty big TBR, especially for me, but I am about halfway through The Looking Glass House and maybe a third of the way through The Dinosaur Lords, and I’ve started Armada, so maybe it’s doable. I have zero faith in me.

So how was your month, guys? Read anything particularly good?

    Ooh, ambitious TBRs are the best. xD I literally have only, like 6 books left on my TBR. 0_0 I’m not really sure what to do with myself?! CLEARLY I NEED LIBRARY INTENSELY. hehe. But I’m kind of enjoying the knowledge that I’ll actually have zero books on my shelf soon (for the first time in years). Ooh, so much pretty. I love the Crane Wife’s photo! ❤
