Summer Wrap Up

Man y’all, I’ve been so bad about wrap-ups and TBRs, which makes me kind of sad, because I generally love wrap-ups and TBRs! Hopefully by doing a wrap-up for the summer (June, July, and August) now, I’ll get back on track and maybe I’ll post a TBR soon too… Besides books, this summer was full of trying new recipes- my mom’s birthday was in July so I made this dark chocolate buttermilk cake with an espresso swiss meringue buttercream that was so good (and so fun to make) for that! I also went to a bunch of great workout classes and prepped for my gym to expand to a second location! We also had a mini family reunion at my aunt and uncle’s house in Northern Virginia and of course, I worked A TON. So all in all, a pretty successful summer!

July Wrap Up

Happy August y’all! I haven’t written a wrap up post in so long but this month I was like you know what, I read so many great books in July- I have to talk about them! I’m going to have reviews going out about some of these books later this month, so keep an eye out for those (I’ll make sure to call them out). Let’s get started!Read More »

July Wrap Up and August TBR

Man, July went by so fast and we’re already decently into August and I’m JUST writing up my wrap up and TBR post. What a mess. I also read far fewer books than I wanted to- I only read 8 books, and man, that seems like such a small number haha

In July, I read:

Immunity – SO GOOD! Read my review here.

Obsidio – Also SO GOOD!

One of us is Lying – Better than I was expecting, honestly!

Sightwitch – I listened to this as an audiobook and it was definitely an interesting experience (in the best way possible)

Sorcery of Thorns – I’m going to let my review speak for itself on this one

Kingsbane – ugh.

Don’t Want to Miss a Thing – I’ve been into rom-coms recently and this was such a cute book- definitely a fan

Tiger Queen – I read this one from NetGalley and I really liked it! Look for a review closer to when it comes out (so like early September)!

In August I’d like to read:

The Kingdom – I’m listening to this as an audiobook right now and I’m really enjoying it- I LOVED the first season of Westworld, so this concept is super cool to me

The Traitor’s Kingdom – technically I’ve already read this one, but I read it in August, so I’m counting it as this month [spoiler alert- it was so good!]

Gravemaidens – I got an e-arc of this book via NetGalley and I’m so excited to read it- I’ve heard great things!

Vow of Thieves –  OMG I loved Dance of Thieves, so Vow of Thieves has been really high on my list for a while

King of Scars – Maybe this’ll be the month I finally finish this book?

Fix her Up – My best friend read this book last month and said that I have to read it haha

Spin the Dawn – I started this from the library and I’m 184 pages in right now, but I have to return it to the library today, so time to pick up the audiobook (when I finish the kingdom)

Bloodwitch – I’ve been meaning to read this one since it came out, so maybe this month is the month I do it?

Lair of Dreams – I thought the Diviners was super interesting, so when book 4 was announced earlier this year, I figured that maybe it’s time for me to read books 2 and 3 soon too (read my review of the Diviners here)

What are y’all planning on reading in August/what did you read in July?
