July Wrap-Up/August TBR

This felt like a good, solid reading month. Lots of good reads, some decent reads. None that I overly disliked so I call that a win.

July Wrap-Up:

Zero Repeat Forever – GS Prendergast. 3.5/5 stars. I listened to this one of audio book and I enjoyed the narrators. It was a good story, slow in the middle, but I look forever to the next book.

 The Summer Wives – Beatriz Williams. 3.5/5 stars. Great summer read. A little out of my comfort zone but it sucked me in.

 Nyxia Unleashed – Scott Reintgen. Review. Even better than the first!

 Mirage – Somaiya Daud. 3.5/5 stars. Interesting concept, engaging characters, maybe a little predictable but that’s probably more because I read so much fantasy.

 Darius the Great is Not Okay – Adidb Khorrah. 4/5 stars. Very good read. I couldn’t put it down!

 Catching Stars – Cayla Kennan. 3/5 stars. Not one I likely would have picked up if it didn’t come in an Owlcrate box but it was enjoyable to read.

 The War Outside – Monica Hesse. Review. So good. A must read.

 Grim Lovelies – Megan Shepherd. 4/5 stars. I love Megan Shepherd’s writing and I love how dark her books get.

 The Coldest Girl in Coldtown – Holly Black. 3/5 stars. Solid book, I just couldn’t connect with it while I was reading. I think it’s one I could have really enjoyed a year or so ago when I was heavily into the paranormal.

 A Very Large Expanse of the Sea – Tahereh Mafi. 4.5/5 stars. A must read. So meaningful and relevant. Not one I will be forgetting. Ever.

 Stay Sweet – Siobhan Vivian. 3.5/5 stars. A cute, perfect for summer read.

 Shadow of the Fox – Julie Kagawa. 4/5 stars. This series has a whole lot of potential to became a fast favourite.

 Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe – Preston Norton. 4/5 stars. I am definitely a fan. This is the type of book I can see myself re-reading if I ever decide to re-read books.

 Brightly Burning – Alexa Donne. 3/5 stars. It was good but this was another one I had a harder time connecting with while reading.

 Wildcard – Marie Lu. 4.5/5 stars. So much action, moving the plot ahead, so not just a middle book!

 For a Muse of Fire – Heidi Heilig. 4/5 stars. I knew this would be good but it surprised me with how easily I was completely sucked in.

 Little Green – Tish Cohen. 4/5 stars. Another one outside my comfort zone but more like this and I can see this type of book becoming my comfort zone.

 Ayesha’s Gift – Martin Sixsmith. 3.5/5 stars. A non-fiction book!

We’re in the middle of a heat wave. Well, a heat wave for around here. Reading outside can be hit or miss depending on how muggy it is. Don’t want finger sweat on my pages.

Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten red, white, and blue books for July 4th but I don’t celebrate July 4th so I did Top Ten Canadian authors.

10. gathering big Kelley Armstrong. I have read so many books by her.

9. Valiant Lesley Livingston. I haven’t read much by her but this series has intrigued me since it came out.

8. Anne LM Montgomery. There will always be a place for LM Montgomery on my top ten list.

7. Zero Repeat Forever GS Prendergast. Just finished this one and it was very good. A bit slow in places but interesting beginning to the series.

6. Stolen songbird big Danielle L Jensen. Another series I got behind of but I really liked.

5. rush big Eve Silver. Loved the first two books in the series. The third was good.

4. girl mans up M-E Girard. She only has one book out but it was powerful.

3. Sadie Courtney Summers. I’ve only read a few of hers but I loved them.

2. falling kingdom Morgan Rhodes. I am so behind on her books but I enjoyed what I have read.

  1. rebel of the sands Alwyn Hamilton. I loved the first book of this series and can’t wait to read the rest.
