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 & 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 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.
- 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 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?
