Monthly Wrap-Up – July 2019

Another month that was an epic fail! Where did the time go? I barely read 6 books in all during the month! But I did manage to finish my backlog of Netgalley books and I was up-to-date with my reviews so I’ll take that as a win for now.

Here are the books I read in July:

1. Spinning Silver – Naomi Novik

This was a re-read. I was missing Miryem and the Staryk Lord and it was good to return back to this story. I enjoyed it all the more. I last read it at about the same time one year ago, give or take a few days. πŸ˜‰

2. Pretty Reckless – L.J. Shen

I started this book on a whim, while I was stuck at my cousin’s Indian wedding (the rituals can dragΒ hours and my phone was my sole survival option) and I got so hooked that I have no idea when the time passed and the wedding was over. This book is raw with messy characters full of flaws and it was pretty good.

3. Beasts of The Frozen Sun – Jill Criswell

Nice little gem I found on Netgalley and got approved for. I loved this book. I have rotten luck with Netgalley books – I always get approved for the ones whose stories turn out to be boring and a drag but in this one, things just kept happening over and over again. It was a rollercoaster ride. Release date is 06 August 2019 so if you love YA Fantasy, grab this book. You won’t regret it.

4. Bound by Blood – Cynthia Eden

Another re-read. A novella that I sadly did not enjoy as much as I did the first time. I think I was getting the beginnings of a reading slump.

5. An Enchantment of Ravens – Margaret Rogerson

This book! What can I say about it? It was so awesome it left me in a book hangover afterwards. It’s a fantastic story that I enjoyed a lot.

6. Wicked Fox – Kat Cho

When you look at that awesome cover, you think, this must be a dynamic story, right? Wrong! It was so slow-paced and the main character annoyed me so much I wanted to drop it. Wicked Fox was a disappointing end to my July.

On the blogging front, I managed to stick to my blog memes and finished 4 reviews. Not as productive as I’d expected but still, acceptable.

How about you? How did your month go?

I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.

  1. Your pictures are stunning! The month of July was horrible reading-wise for me too.
    Spinning Silver is in my soon-to-read TBR, and Pretty Reckless sounds.. well… pretty cool lol.
    I did think Wicked Fox was going to be cool when I saw the cover. Now I don’t think I will be picking it up though. I guess that’s why they say don’t judge a book by its cover.
