July was a weird month. Work got really busy, I went on a mini vacation, and I picked up the very time consuming hobby of book binding! You can follow my book binding progress on Instagram HERE!
I didn’t think I’d get much reading done, but I surprised myself and managed to read 9 books.
So, here are some stats!
Number of pages read: 3683
Number of print books: 5
Number of e-books: 4
Favourite quote of the month:
“’Limerence.’ There’s no other word like it. The state of being infatuated with another person.” -Love and Other Words – Christina Lauren
Without further ado…. here is where I feature my top two books from differing genres.
All the Young Dudes is a story that will stay with me forever and have a lasting impact. I’m already so obsessed that I started to teach myself how to bind books so that I can bind these three volumes for my collection.
Love and Other Words is a friends-to-lovers emotional rollercoaster that had me crying, laughing, and swooning. If you enjoyed Every Summer After by Carley Fortune, you’ll definitely like Love and Other Words.
A Curse of Blood and Stone is a fast paced sequel as Tucker expands her world while offering up some political intrigue, battle sequences, and a light dusting of romance. Four Stars
People We Meet on Vacation was disappointing in its execution as there was a lack of angst and chemistry between the main characters. Three Stars
All the Young Dudes Book Two finds its faster pace through the exploration of Remus and Sirius’ developing relationship and the growing war outside of Hogwarts. I am slightly scared to read Book Three as I know it will break my heart. Five Stars
The Boss Project is a fun and sexy office romance with a spitfire main character and a swoon worthy love interest. It’s also a Keeland novel, so expect some unexpected emotional baggage that will pull on your heartstrings. Four Stars
Below Zero is a quick and sexy read that will keep readers entertained with a swoon worthy love interest and some truly great banter. Four Stars
In the Shadow of Lightning is an excellent introduction to the Glass Immortals series featuring an interesting magic system, dynamic political machinations, and well developed characters. Four Stars
