I haven’t read much this month, there has been a lot going on work wise and family wise. I have decided I need to start writing again on some level so to ease myself into reviews again we are going to try for 1-3 mini review posts each month. I’m not going to set an exact number in case I move on to full reviews or read one book and don’t post till the end of the month but either way I want to share what I’m reading and what I thought!
Gideon Falls Volume 5: Wicked Worlds by Jeff Lemire/Andrea Sorrentino – This story has turned dramatically, I don’t think I saw anything happening coming, and I honestly don’t know where it is going anymore. 3/5
Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon (audio) – Once I got past the quite horrible opening (not the writing, the acts happening) it actually was a fun story and not as steamy as booktok made it out to be. Maybe that’s in later books? I’d continue with the series. 3/5
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (audio) – This was a reread via audio to read the Carry On series. Still adorable, still love it. 5/5
Fangirl Vol 1: The Manga by Rainbow Rowell, adapted by Sam Maggs/Gabi Nam – Just another version of the above. Adorable. 5/5
Second First Impressions by Sally Thorne (audio) – This is the second book I’ve read by Sally and it was pretty cute, there were multiple secondary characters I’d love to know more about, I hope we can revisit this setting again! 3/5
The Dead Mom’s Club by Kate Spencer – The second I knew this book existed I requested it from the library. Every single person goes through grief differently but being another member of the Dead Mom’s Club in a somewhat similar way to the author helped me in feeling validated in how I grieve. This made me feel more normal than I have in quite some time. 5/5
Lumberjanes Vol 17: Smitten in the Stars and Vol 18: Horticultural Horizons by Shannon Watters – These are like reading a friendly hug. The adventures the Janes get up to are always entertaining. 3/5
What about you? What did you read in July?
