I think I only managed to squeeze ten books into July but I did start a new job and had a huge clear out of stuff. So at least I know why. And look, there have been some pretty amazing books lately, can’t believe how many five star reviews I’ve been dishing out. It looks like August is going to be a mega month for book releases too, so many I want to read, it’s a good thing I’ve made a head start!

Here’s what made it onto the blog…


5 stars awarded to: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead, Winter Damage by Natasha Carthew, Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, The Weight of Souls by Bryony Pearce, Omens by Kelley Armstrong and Cruel Summer by James Dawson.

Disappointed with: Someone Else’s Life by Katie Dale and Kitty Rocks the House by Carrie Vaughn.

Read and awaiting review: The Cambodian Book of the Dead by Tom Vater and Night School by C.J. Daugherty.

Blogged about:

I confessed to being scared of big books and gave you my top ten most intimidating books. A major squee alert as I got to interview one of my favourite authors, Karin Slaughter. I also discovered than Jack London wrote about more than just dogs when I had a look at forthcoming re-issues from Hesperus Press. Rounding off the month with a Q+A with Bryony Pearce.
