Hello Kittens! I am so happy that this year seems to be flying by and we are already into August. I am more than ready for the Fall and getting to August means we’re almost there. July ended up being a poor reading month for me in the second half of the month, mostly due to the fact that I moved at the end of the month. Moving in July is its own particular form of Hell, in my personal opinion, and resulted in me struggling to finish any books these last 10 days or so. Without further ado, let’s take a look at what I did manage to get through.
(Title links are to goodreads.)
Total Books Read: 9
Exit Strategy by Martha Wells, Rating: 5 stars
An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole, Rating: 3.5 stars (rounded up to 4)
Distress Signals by Catherine Ryan Howard, Rating: 4 stars
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman, Rating: 4 stars
Once & Future, Vol. 1 by Kieron Gillen, Rating: 4 stars
True Story by Kate Reed Petty, Rating: 3 stars
I finished 6 of my 11 planned July TBR books. This is roughly 55% of what I had planned, but I did read a few books that weren’t on the list. I’m giving myself a break on these this month because I severely underestimated how disruptive moving would be. I do have 2 of the remaining 5 books already in progress, so I will be finishing Maliceby John Gwynne and Red Rising by Pierce Brown in the next few days.

In conclusion, I read a lot of good books this month, but I will hopefully be reading and posting more in August.
