I can’t quite believe that we’re already over halfway through 2020, it’s flown unbelievably fast!
I’ve been working a tad more this month and perhaps my TBR was a little bit too excessive… BUT I’m still managing to find time to read – if only a little!
Here’s my reads for July…
- Wilder Girls by Rory Power
I started this just before July (like 2 days beforehand) as it was a 2020 release (before lockdown) and was super pleased to find it a relatively quick and easy read, although FYI it feature it’s own pandemic and strange ‘illness’.
- The Truants by Kate Weinberg
Another 2020 read! I was super excited to read this at it sounded really intriguing – features Agatha Christie, Norwich and first loves.
- The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern (Audio)
This was another book that I was super excited about – and it didn’t disappoint! Filled with magic, wonder and a tad confusion – this is a fantastic story.
- 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World by Elif Shafak
I’d never picked up a book by Elif Shafak but read the blurb for this and thought I’d give it a try. I wasn’t disappointed!
- Pumpkin Heads by Rainbow Rowell
This was a quick and light-hearted read, which we all need at times. It’s cute and the illustrations are adorable – loved this read!
- Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell (Audio)
I’ve never read Maggie O’Farrell before despite how well-loved she is, but this book sounded interesting – possibly not great to read a book about the plague during this time though haha.
I managed to read 5 out of the 6 books on my July TBR and, no surprise to many, I just didn’t find the time to attack the 800 page tome, which is Sarah J. Maas’ House of Earth and Blood – maybe next month?
Do let me know in the comments below if you’d set yourself a TBR pile for July and how you got on? Did you read any good books this month, any you’d recommend? Or were you like me and just couldn’t find the time to read. Let me know in the comments below.
