I cannot believe that July is almost over. At the beginning of the month I set myself a very ambitious TBR list, so I thought I’d give you a quick update on my progress.
Unsurprisingly, I did not read every book on my TBR list.
Here’s what I did read this month:
- The Dream Thieves, Blue Lilly, Lilly Blue, and The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
I started Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle last month and I had such a hard time getting anything else read because I was so obsessed with them.
I absolutely love Maggie Stiefvater’s writing style. It’s the perfect balance of real and fantastical,
and I love how easily I get lost in the world she’s created inside our own.
I really just want to friends with Blue and her boys.
- A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Mass
I had such a hard time getting into this book. The beginning of the story seemed to drag on forever. It wasn’t until about halfway through the book that I really started to care about what happened to Feyre.
I’m planning on finishing the series, but I’m not sure I’ll like it as much as I thought I would.
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I was absolutely blown away by how powerful this book is. It’s got a powerful message, and a wonderful cast of characters. It made me laugh and cry in the span of about an hour.
- Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
Moxie doesn’t come out for another few months, but I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC. I mean, it’s a feminist novel that comes with a recommendation from Amy Pohler herself. What more could you ask for?
- Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Promise by Gene Yang
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of my favorite TV series of all time, and I’ve been wanting to read these comics for years. I was pleasantly surprised by how well they captured the essence of what I love about the series.
- Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughn
Several people have recommended Saga to me recently, so I decided to check out Vol. 1. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who’s uncomfortable with more mature themes, but I was intrigued by the story. Looking forward to reading more.
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
Do I really need to explain?
So, that’s it for July. I hope you all had a wonderful month. I’ll need some reading recommendations for August, so let me know what you think I should read next.
