July was an excellent month for me, I read a good average amount for me. I also started my book buying ban this month so that hit well on my wallet!
Highlights of the month were Succubus Revealed, and The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly. Yes, yes, both were amazing. Top scores.
Of course on all these I usually have a little bit of a longer review on my Goodreads so you can check it out if you like.
Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Thomas Sweterlisch This out of comfort zone thriller was unique and fascinating. 3 *s
Penpal by Dathan Auerbach This is the only book to give me nightmares in recent memory and unsettled me deeply. 4 *s
Succubus Shadows and Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead Shadows got a 3 *s and Revealed got a 5 *s, my favorite of the series.
Bird Box by Josh Malerman 4 *s Creepy and a very interesting concept.
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour 5 *s I adored this queer romance, perfection.
The Steerswoman by Rosemary Kirstein 4*s, I really enjoyed this! It was a unique fantasy quest type story.
The Minaturist by Jessie Burton This was a magical realism historical fiction. I almost didn’t finish it but halfway through it sucked me in 4 *s
The Unseaming by Mike Allen 4 *s I really liked these horror stories and one in particular featured a character from my home town!
Avalon by Mindy Arnet 3 *s
The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oake 5 *s, I think this was my favorite read of the month
Alice by Christina Henry This was a hella weird Alice in Wonderland story. So weird guys, I still don’t know if it’s YA or Adult. It’s a bit too graphic for YA but the protagonist thinks like a 16 year old soooo… ? 4 *s
Tricks by Ellen Hopkins 5 *s, Ellen Hopkins punches me right in the emotions every time.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children : Hollow City by Ransom Riggs 5 *s I really liked this one more than the first, much more fast paced and interesting. There were a lot more Peculiars as well!
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen 3 *s I try to avoid contemporary because they make me anxious as shit, but this one wasn’t too anxiety inducing, I enjoyed it!
