July Wrap Up 2021

How quick are these months going, it’s going to be Christmas before we know it! The weather has definitely taken a turn this month from all the hot, sunny weather. I love the rain though, one of my favourite things to do is snuggle up with a blanket next to the open window with a book while it’s throwing it down with rain. And that is exactly what I’m doing today.

I’m still trying to find the willpower to write posts regularly but I’ve woken up this morning and I really wanted to get this one done. It feels really nice to want to be able to write again instead of trying to force myself. Although I only read 4 books in July, they were all great and I’ve already started and finished some great ones this month too. Okay, onto my July wrap-up now!

July Books

The Harm Tree by Rose Edwards

The Harm Tree is a fantastic tale about two best friends Torny and Ebba who end up on completely different paths to try and survive after the war. I loved both of these characters and their captivating journeys. It was incredibly hard to put this book down once you’ve started it! Read my full review here.

No Number Nine by F.J Campbell

I didn’t know what to expect going into this book but I ended up loving it. No Number Nine is the perfect book to get caught up in the Olympic spirit right now. There is a great mix of romance and sporty action that is easy to get wrapped up in. Read my full review here.

Kings and Daemons by Marcus Lee

If you are looking for a great fantasy full of action and adventure that will keep you hooked from start to finish, you need to read Kings and Daemons! As soon as I finished I had to read the next book and get back into the world that Lee has created. Read my full review here.

Hydra by Matt Wesolowski

I am in love with these books and they seem to be getting creepier as the series goes on. If you love a good true-crime podcast then you will love the six stories series. I definitely preferred Hydra to Six Stories, it was more paranormal and very addicting to read. I definitely recommend this if you love a good murder mystery that goes the extra mile. My review will be coming soon!

As Good as Dead by Holly Jackson

If you haven’t read A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder and the sequel Good Girl, Bad Blood. Stop what you are doing right now and go and read them. This series is probably my all-time favourite and the final book, As Good As Dead did not disappoint. I just can’t believe it’s over now and there won’t be any more of Pip’s glorious mind. This book is a lot darker than the others and that is one of the reasons why I love it so much. I will be posting my full review very soon!

Blog Tour: Wicked Little Deeds by Kat Ellis

My plan today is to start Wicked Little Deeds. I planned to start it a few days ago but then I started as good as dead and had to finish it first. Now I can concentrate on this murder mystery. I’ve seen so many good reviews and I’m hoping I love it as much as everyone else on the blog tour. Look out for my review on August 15th!

Blog Tour: The Other Side of the Whale Road by K.A Hayton

I am so intrigued by this book and can’t wait to get started on it. The Anglo-Saxon era is so interesting and I’ve never read a book that is set in this time. Look out for my review on August 17th!

Blog Tour: The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara

It’s been a while since I’ve read a romance and this sounds so sweet and a book I will really enjoy, especially after reading a lot of action-filled fantasies. Look out for my stop on the blog tour on Saturday 21st August!

Blog Tour: Fireborn by Aisling Fowler

I’ve seen so many good things about this book. Some are even saying it’s their new favourite fantasy. It sounds like such a super epic middle-grade fantasy and I am so eager to get to this. As you can see I have quite a few blog tours beforehand so I best get a move on. My stop on the blog tour is Sunday 22nd August, look out for my review then!

Buddy Read: Changeling by Matt Wesolowski

I’ve read the first section of this book for my buddy read and it’s already just as if not more creepy than the other books in the series. Instead of murder like the other two books, this one is about a little boy who disappeared on Christmas Eve in the woods that definitely seem haunted with some kind of spirit. I’m very excited to carry on reading.

There we have it. My July wrap-up and August TBR that consist of many many blog tours. Let me know if you had a favourite book in July and which book you’re most excited to read this month!
