I try to come up with a very loose TBR pile every month in an attempt to keep me reading. It has been working well so far, probably because I’m not taking it too seriously. I’m allowing myself to take breaks, read other things, buy new books (even though I really shouldn’t), and switch up the order. Having a physical pile or list to look at really seems to help motivate me. So here’s my list for July. I tried to keep it mixed in terms of genre so I wouldn’t get bored, although I seem to have gone for a lot of fantasy instead of the contemporary books I was hoping
I read the first book in the First Law trilogy a few months ago, and I’ve been waiting for a recap before diving into the second one. The recap is written and scheduled for Recaptains so I’m ready to begin!
The Couple Next Door turned out to be a really exciting read, so I’ve preordered Lapena’s next book. Hopefully it’s just as captivating as her debut!
I picked this book up at an event a couple of months ago, but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. Quill read it when we were on holiday and he really enjoyed it, so I’m hoping to love it. It’s a fantasy debut that also sounds a bit steampunky.
Dark Peter Pan with illustrations. Tatum gave me her copy of this and it’s been sat on my shelf for the longest time so I should probably get around to it now that I’m in the mood.
Blackout was SUCH a fun book filled with action and superpowers – two things that I really enjoy. I’m going to finish off the duology this month so I can stay up to date with Wells’ work!
This was a last minute addition. I’ve owned a copy for ages, but I hadn’t thought about picking it up until it came up in conversation when we were on holiday. I figured that was some sort of bookish sign, and decided to read it ASAP.
If I believed in the term “guilty pleasures”, this series would be one of them. But I don’t, and I am willing to admit that I am really enjoying this series. It’s not the most original or the most well written, but I’m certainly very entertained by it.
I need to see what all the hype is about!
These Things I’ve Done is a review copy that I’ve been wanting to get to for a while. It’s the only YA contemporary on the list, so it had better be a good summer read or I’ll be a bit disappointed.
