July Wrap Up.


I’m going to be doing things a little differently with my wrap up this month. I normally add my TBR for the next month after I’ve given a list of what I read but as it’s still July I haven’t gotten much of a TBR yet, except for my ARC August TBR. So I’ll just mention that at the end for anyone who hasn’t read my ARC August TBR post.


I read 10 books in July, two of them were re-reads. I had a bit of a reading slump and just couldn’t get out of it. Anyway, onto the ratings.

The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead – ★★★/5
Begin, End, Begin – A #LoveOzYA Anthology by Danielle Binks – ★★★/5
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (re-read) – ★★★★★/5
Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (re-read) – ★★★★★/5
When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – ★★★/5
The Huntress: Sea by Sarah Driver – ★★★/5
Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julie Israel – ★★★★/5
The Moonlight Dreamers by Siobhan Curham – ★★★★/5
Countless by Karen Gregory – ★★★★/5
The Leaving by Tara Altebrando – ★★★/5

Obviously I love Illuminae and Gemina and they were still good the second time. I also really enjoyed Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index, The Moonlight Dreamers and Countless. The rest were just okay. I loved some of the stories in the LoveOzYA Anthology but most of them were just okay so I couldn’t give that more than three stars.

So, now for my ARC August TBR. I have made a post about this so if you’ve already read that then you can skip this part.


These are the five books I plan on reading for ARC August. Well they were when I made the TBR post. But I found another ARC that I should have already read by now that I’m going to read as well. That’s The Student by Iain Ryan. It’s set in Australia.

I’ll be posting my full August TBR soon. When I’ve figured out what else I want to read.

What books did you read in July?

I read more than I thought I had in July. Towards the end of the month I had a horrible reading slump but I don’t think I did too badly. I managed to read nine books in July.


Tripping Back Blue by Kara Storti – ★★★/5
See How They Run by Ally Carter – ★★★★/5
Dark Tide by Jennifer Donnelly – ★★★★/5
The Girls by Emma Cline – ★★★/5
Awaken by G.R. Thomas – ★★★★/5
Foxlowe by Eleanor Wasserberg – ★★★/5
The Sudden Appearance of Hope by Claire North – ★★★/5
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – ★★★★★/5
The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey – ★★★★★/5

This month I haven’t really got my TBR together yet because I’m joining one read-a-thon and probably ARC August (again) so I have to figure those out first. But I do have some book at the top of my TBR that I shared the other day. Not pictured was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because I didn’t have it at the time.


I’m currently reading And I Darken and I’m really enjoying it so far. I don’t know when I’ll get to the others but I want to read them sometime during August.

What’s at the top of your TBR in August?
