July is over already and I cannot believe it. Crazy how quick this year is going.
I had a pretty good reading month, I read a total of 8 books, I think that is the most I’ve read in a month this year. So I’m happy! Plus, I read some really good new books and reread two old favourites!
The first book I read in July (but started in June) was The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski.
Really enjoyed this collection of short stories, the main character, Geralt, was really interesting and I liked his personality. I definitely want to pick up the rest of the series.
Rating: 4 Stars!
I was lucky enough to be sent *Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik for review. This book was SO good! I wasn’t a huge fan of Uprooted but the premise of this really intrigued me and it didn’t let me down!
Rating: 4 Stars
The next book I finished was a reread of Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. Oh. my. god. This book is everything. I am so in love with it, it may be my favourite book of all time.
Rating: 5 stars!
Reread review here!
The next book I finished was Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend. This was kinda disappointing, after all the hype surrounding it I thought this would be a 5 star read for me. Unfortunately not!
Rating: 3 Stars
Next I decided I want to read some contemporary, so I decided to reread Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I wanted to reread this before continuing the series, I never bothered picking up the sequels but now I own them I want to!
I really enjoyed this reread, there is a lot of hate surrounding this book (and the film). I honestly don’t see the hate, it’s a really good book with a powerful story and meaning behind it. I don’t know whether to do a review/discussion post on this or not. Maybe I’ll do a combined one, once I read the next two books in the series!
Rating: 5 Stars
Keeping on with the contemporary mini-phase, I read *In Search of Us by Ava Dellaira. Also kept to the sad book theme, I had no idea going in how much this story would affect me. (Hit me right in the feels, as did Me before You.)
Rating: 3.75 Stars
The next book I finished was *The Pagan Night by Tim Akers, this was sent to me for review by Titan Books. Thank you to them for the opportunity!
Unfortunately, this wasn’t as good/epic as I was hoping. It was a really average, bland fantasy. I’ll discuss this more in my review.

Review: coming soon!
And finally, with two hours to spare, the last book I finished in July was The Light Between Us by Katie Khan
This was really enjoyable! Will discuss it fully in my upcoming review!
