Hey guys! Today I’m going to be sharing what I read in the month of July. When I counted the total number of books I finished, I almost screamed. I read 11 books this month. 11! I’ve also read 102 books over the course of the entire year (at the time of writing this), so I’m really happy right now! Let’s discuss the books I read this month, shall we?
1. In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken
4/5 stars. I really liked this series! I really liked Ruby’s character, more so than other popular main characters in YA, because of how flawed she is. She’s lost so much, yet she’s determined to save everyone. I’m really excited to see the movie. If you haven’t read this series yet, what are you doing? Highly recommend.
2. The Foretelling by Alice Hoffman
3/5 stars. This was a book about how horses were women’s sisters. It follows Rain, the daughter of the women’s tribe’s leader. It’s a very weird story, and I don’t really know how to describe it. Not sure if I would recommend it.
3. Nobody’s Princess by Esther Friesner
3/5 stars. This book is a retelling of Helen of Troy. I enjoyed the story, but not sure if I would recommend it to others.
4. Brave Enough by Kati Garder
4.5/5 stars. I loved this book! I have a whole post dedicated to it that I’ll post closer to the release date, (August 21st) so keep an eye out for that. It follows two cancer kids, and one of them was in rehab for their drug addiction.
5. Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D Jackson
4.5/5 stars. I have a whole post about my feelings on this novel, so go check it out!

6. Since You’ve Been Gone & 7. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
Both 4.5/5 stars. Morgan Matson is officially my new favorite contemporary author. The relationships were so cute, and I wanted to be part of the friend groups the whole time! Overall, highly recommend. I can’t wait to read her other books.
8. Sadie by Courtney Summers
3/5 stars. I was able to read this book thanks to NetGalley, so shout out to them! I’ll discuss my thoughts in a separate post dedicated to the book.
9. The Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger
2/5 stars. The main character was so negative and hated everything. Not a good reading experience.
10. Warcross by Marie Lu
3/5 stars. Up until the games start, the book was pretty boring. I found myself skimming through almost the whole thing. I liked the plot, just not the characters. I feel like they weren’t developed well enough, including Hideo.
11. Leah On The Offbeat by Becky Albertelli
5/5 stars. I read this book in one day. I was eager to jump back into the world after Simon, and once I started, I couldn’t stop. It felt like I was there the whole time. 10/10 would recommend.
