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!
