July 2018 Reading Wrap-up


I’ve made a decision regarding my official montly TBR lists. I’ve decided to get rid of them and just stick to reading wrap-ups such as this one. Lately I just haven’t been doing well at sticking to it, which has led to me feeling guilty about what I am reading. And that’s just silly. So from now on, I’m just going to be reading what I’m  in the mood for.

Past Month’s Reading:

July felt like a very slow reading month as I spent the first three weeks trying to get through one title (which I am still to finish). In the end, I did get through four titles, which is not too bad but I feel like there could have been more.

Here is what I read and reviewed in July:

  • I Had Such Friends by Meg Gatland-Veness (YA contemporary – 2 stars – review) (read June, reviewed July)
  • Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner (YA sci-fi – 3 stars – review) (read June, reviewed July)
  • A Mask of Shadows by Oscar de Muriel (adult historical fiction/mystery – 2 stars – review)
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon (YA contemporary – 4 stars – review)
  • The Other Alice by Michelle Harrison (middle-grade fantasy – 3 stars – review)
  • Alive! by Loren D. Estleman (adult crime fiction – 3 stars – review forthcoming).

Currently reading:

Physical book: Beauty and the Werewolf by Mercedes Lackey. This is my first book by Lackey and it looks like it will be fun and enjoyable.

Ebook: Not reading any ebooks at the moment.

Audio book: I have returned to Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel. It’s not my favourite but as it was an Audible pick, I plan on seeing it through. I’m at about the 40% mark at the moment. 

Planning to read next:

I will probably pick up Behind the Scenes at the Museum of Baked Beans: an Odd-ysey by Hunter Davies. I haven’t read any non-fiction in a while and this feels like a fun one.

How is your reading going?
