Hello, bookish friends! ☀️
Another month has come and gone, so you know what that means! Time for a wrap up. July was definitely not my best reading month since I only read six books, however, I did for the most part enjoy the books that I decided to pick up. I even managed to sneak my second five-star read of the year in. Now that August is here I’m trying to wrap up the books I have sitting on my “currently reading” shelf this way I can switch over to the spooky/autumn reads I have planned for this year. Nothing like a little head start, am I right?
Let’s dive in!
What I read in July
Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel – ★★
Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl – ★★★
The Vanity of Roses by Lily White – ★★
Nightfall by Penelope Douglas – ★★★★★
The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix – ★★★★
The In the Role of Brie Hutchens by Nicole Melleby – ★★★★

Don’t feel like reading a review?
Here’s my thoughts on each book in one sentence!
- Darling Rose Gold – These characters can choke for all I care.
- Neverworld Wake – Final Destination-esque with a day from hell that never ends.
- The Vanity of Roses – Where’s the plot?
- Nightfall – Literal perfection, haven’t been the same since.
- The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires -Bitches get shit done.
- The In the Role of Brie Hutchens – The fact that a MG novel like this exists makes my heart swell.
Favorite Read of the Month
Nightfall was everything I could have asked for in terms of wrapping up the Devil’s Night series and I am so incredibly sad to see it go. I finished this book about four days ago and I haven’t been able to pick anything else up since. I just need to mourn that my time is up with my favorite group of twisted characters.
Least Favorite Read of the Month
The Vanity of Roses definitely had potential to be A LOT better than what it was. The main issue I had with this book was there was no plot at all until about the 75% mark, the rest of the time it was just the two MC’s being truly terrible to one another. I’m a pretty big fan of dark romance but this was just a no from me.
Until next time,
