Hello, friends! I am sort of back from my hiatus but not really… 😛 I’ll slowly ease my way back into it, that’s for sure.
Anyway, remember when I said I wouldn’t buy a lot of books in July? Well… That completely didn’t happen at all. Oops! Little did I know about the sales and the coupons and how I can’t resist any of that. 😂
This has to be a new record for me. I can’t remember the last time I finished nine books in a month. 😲 I think it was mainly due to not having to write detailed reviews (lol) and because I actually had free weekends with nothing to do but read. Since I’m still on hiatus from my blog, I’ll link my (very short) Goodreads review for each book (even though some of them say “full review to come” it may never happen, LOL. I’m sorry)!
Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game #1) by Amanda Foody (audiobook) – ★★★
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston – ★★★★
There’s Something About Sweetie (Dimple and Rishi #2) by Sandhya Menon (audiobook) – ★★★★
Sherwood by Meagan Spooner (ARC) – ★★★ 1/2
Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy #1) by Emily A. Duncan (ARC) – ★★ 1/2
Nyxia Unleashed (The Nyxia Triad #2) by Scott Reintgen (audiobook) – ★★★ 1/2
Fake It Till You Break It by Jenn P. Ngyuen – ★★
The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient #2) by Helen Hoang – ★★★★★
Wilder Girls by Rory Power – ★
My most disappointing reads were definitely Wicked Saints (I linked my actual review for that one above since I actually posted a detailed review with a trigger warning), Fake It Till You Break It, and Wilder Girls. I was a bit disappointed in Sherwood, too, but only because I wanted to like it as much as I did Hunted, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen.
Now for the book haul…
Yes, hello, to the six books I bought. 🙈
Half Price Books had coupons (up to 50% off) and then Target had a Cartwheel deal of 20% off all books which I couldn’t resist. Target already sells their books at 20% in general so… Yeah.
I promise I’ll do better next month!
Anyway, like I said before, I’m not fully back from my hiatus. I’ve got a few ARCs lined up for August and September, and I’ll definitely be posting those reviews when the release date draws closer. In the meantime, if you’re in the U.S., you can enter my Twitter giveaway for some older ARCs. If you’re really keen, you can follow my bookstagram where I post at least 3-4 times a week.
