Monthly Wrap-Ups

July 2017 – Wrap Up

Hey everyone!

Honestly, how are we already to August? This summer is just flying by far too quickly! How did everyone’s reading go for this month? Did you meet your reading goals? For those of you that participated in BookTube-A-Thon, how did that go?

This month wasn’t my best reading month, but I’m still pretty proud of how much reading I accomplished. I read 7 books this month and put a sizeable dent in my ARC TBR pile. I do have full reviews for most of these books so I will link them below.

In the month of July I read:

No use for a nameNo Use for a Name by Penelope Wright

Rating: 4/5 Stars

This hard hitting contemporary reads like a Lifetime movie (and I mean that in a good way!).

Full thoughts are detailed here.

The Crowns of CroswaldThe Crowns of Croswald by D. E. Night

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Fun new middle-grade fantasy; perfect for fans of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson!

Daughter of the Pirate KingDaughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Rating: 4/5 Stars

This book was so much fun! I honestly loved it. I flew through this one in one sitting and am impatiently waiting for the sequel. YA seriously needs more pirate books. This book had a badass heroine and a fun use of magic. The romance in this book was a lot of fun too, although a bit predictable. The characters were likable as well. Honestly, I highly recommend this one! It was a quick fantasy that will definitely suck you in!

32571395One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

Probably my favorite read of the month, closely followed by Daughter of the Pirate King.

Rating: 3/5 Stars.

Honestly, this one just wasn’t doing it for me, but I can see where the appeal is. This new adult contemporary will have you run the gamut of emotions.
