Jenn’s July Wrap Up

I can’t believe July is over! July was a hectic month. I spent 10 days of the month traveling around the Southeastern United States on my Bookish Road Trip. (Check out my posts from that here, here, here, and here.) I have also been prepping for the school year. Also, I am moving to another city next week so I’ve been preparing for that. So, yeah not a lot of reading has been happening. I read 7 books in July. Without further ado here are the books I read in July.

  • The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
    • This book was everything I was hoping it was going to be. I love the world of the Raven Cycle books. I can’t get enough of the characters. I really wanted to marathon through these books but, our Book Club books made me slow down a bit.

The Wrath and the Dawn - Renee Ahdieh

  • The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
    • I LOVED THIS BOOK! This was a Thrice Read Book Club book for July. We all absolutely adored it. To read more about our opinions on this book click here.

 

A Study in Charlotte - Brittany Cavallaro

  • A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
    • This book was another one I read for Thrice Read Book Club. I honestly was not the biggest fan of this book. However, I think that had a lot to do with having a book hangover after reading Six of Crows. If you want to read all of our thoughts on this book click here.

TheWickedAndDivine_vol1-1

  • The Wicked & The Divine vol. 1 by Kieron Gillen
    • This was 1 of the 2 books I managed to read on my road trip. This is the first graphic novel in the The Wicked & The Divine series. I really enjoyed the story and the illustrations in this graphic novel. I wrote a review all about it here.

 

The Darkest Corners - Kara Thomas

  • The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas
    • This was yet another Thrice Read Book Club book. I really enjoyed this book. There were some things I wasn’t the biggest fan of. But, overall I liked the story and mystery in this book. Go over here to read all of our thoughts on the book.

  • Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston
    • I had no expectations going into this book. I picked it up a couple months ago. I wanted to read something that was going to be short and easy to get through. This book was a pleasant surprise. The book dealt with a difficult and horrific issue. However, they did it with care and respect. I would definitely recommend this book to other readers of YA.

 

Well, that’s all the books I read in July. How many books did you read? What were your favorites?

    1. I haven’t read the sequel yet but I definitely want to! I could see how it may not be as good as the first though since the first was soooo good! I know I’m the worst about finishing series even the ones I’m completely in love with. I’ve been taking my time through the Raven Cycle. But, I can’t wait to dive back in.
