Goodbye June. You’ve had your flying visit and now we have to welcome in July. I feel like I have finally come out of my reading slump and I’m more motivated to read again. I think my book choices had a big hand in this because I’m such a mood reader but for the past few months my mood has not been giving me a clear direction to which books to pick up.
In non-bookish news, there’s not much report. I’ve basically just spent the month working and fine tuning the details for my New Zealand trip in September. I will say that Game of Thrones has consumed me these past few weeks and now that the season 6 finale has come and gone you can expect to see a length TV Talk on it in the next few days.
Back to the books. I enjoyed all three of these books I read. Each one was so different from one another but were incredibly captivating.
The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore: 4/5 Stars
This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1) by Victoria Schwab: 4/5 Stars
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera: 4.5/5 Stars

July To Be Read List
Again, I’m not going to set a specific tbr list but I’ve just started reading The Star-Touched Queen and hopefully I can finish that book tonight.
I will also be reading The Wrath and the Dawn this month with Summer @ XingSings seeing as we’ve both been meaning to read the book for a while now. Hopefully the book lives up to the hype.
Other than that we’ll just have to see what kind of bookish mood I’m in. July is looking to be a very busy month for me work wise but I think I’ve got the hang of scheduling posts now so I might try and utilize that tool a bit more.
I also have a TV dilemma. Now that Game of Thrones has finished I need some TV recommendations to fill the void for the next 10 months. Any suggestions?
I’d say July was a steady blogging month.
How did July treat you?
