It seems like July passed in a heartbeat! Honestly, I am kind of happy about that since I am eagerly awaiting fall book release season (and just fall vibes in general). August is a nice in-between of summery warmth and the beginnings of cozy, so I think it will be a nice reading month. Anyway, I just wanted to give a quick overview of what I read this July and what I rated each one.
Red Sister by Mark Lawrence
A Cathedral of Myth and Bone by Kat Howard
Unsouled by Will Wight
White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo
Soulsmith by Will Wight
The Near Witch by V.E. Schwab
Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence
The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho
Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
My favorite was definitely the Ancestor series by Mark Lawrence. I’m currently reading the last book in the trilogy. The most unique was Gideon the Ninth. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the sequel comes out in about a week, so I’m super excited about that! I also think I did a good job with actually reading sequels at all this month. I have an unfortunate tendency to prioritize different books rather than finishing a series. Definitely something I’m working on though.
What were your favorite reads this month? Do you have any new releases you’re looking forward to in August?
