Hi pals and welcome to my July wrap up.
I can’t believe that we’re half way through the year already, seriously where has this year gone? I know that literally everybody says this but genuinely I feel as though it has absolutely flown by and it’ll soon be Christmas – YAY!
Last month I managed to read 18 books which I was beyond happy with. Earlier on this month I felt that I had barely read anything, but when I checked I’d got through more than I thought and now I’m ending on eight books! Slight disclaimer though, I finished one of these books today but I’m including it in my July wrap up as I’m writing and posting it today, and also because I read the majority of said book during July 👀. Anyway, let’s get stuck in.
Here is my July wrap up!
My first book of the month was a bloody good one, and that was A Kind of Spark. An own voices story about Addie who is autistic and campaigns for a memorial to be erected in her Scottish hometown in memory of the witch trials, as she believes that there is more to their stories. I loved this and can’t wait to read more from this author!
Another top read this month was Blackout, a collection of short stories celebrating Black love during a power outage in New York one Summer. I loved how all of the stories intertwined and I really enjoyed reading work from all of these fab authors. The LGBTQ+ rep was also very much appreciated too. I picked up the next Nashville Neighbours books this month, The Architect. It was super steamy with a poly romance and I think it’s one of my faves of the series as a whole!
Hi I’m Amy and I love smutty sporty romances! I know that’s no surprise, I’ve raved about them lots before including my fave Off Campus, but I’m here with some more this month! I read the first four books in The Brentwood Boys series by Meghan Quinn and I’ve been loving them. Each of the stories interconnect, with side characters of one book then being the protagonists of another. The stories are told in dual perspective which is one of my favourite styles and there is so much angst and steam, I love it. Sure, they aren’t necessarily my favourites of all time, and the author loves an unnecessary time jump, but I will definitely be completing the series! And if you’re a Kindle Unlimited lover, go fill your boots.
So there we have my July wrap up, and all eight books I read last month. I’m super happy with everything I read – I didn’t hate any of them, yay! I thought that with starting my new job in which I’m no longer working from home that I would struggle to keep up with my reading, and don’t get me wrong I am not keeping up, but I’m definitely not doing too badly either.
