Hello there lovely reader! In today’s blog post I’ll be talking you through all the books I read in July, which ratings I gave them, where you can find a review (if I wrote one) and some statistics!
I’ll start off with the stats! In July I read nine books, which is one less than I had hoped to read, but it’s all okay because quality wise, this month was great. I gave the books I read in July an average rating of eight out of ten, which is one of my highest monthly average ratings of the year. Those nine books made up for a total of 2802 pages, or an average 311 pages per book.
For the format I read those nine books in, I read one audiobook, one ebook and seven physical books. I’m very proud that I read seven books from my physical TBR because I need to get that one down… From those seven physical books I have bought six of those myself and one was gifted to me for my birthday. The ebook was gifted to me via Netgalley and the audiobook I listened to via Storytel.
Genre wise I read one mystery novel, two non fiction books, three contemporaries and three fantasy books. One of the contemporaries I read was a middle grade novel and the other six books were young adult novels.
And that concludes my reading statistics for the month of July, so now I’ll list which books I read, which star rating (out of five) I gave those books and where you can find a review if I wrote one.
- A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard – 4
- A Phoenix First Must Burn edited by Patrice Caldwell – 3.5 – review to come
- A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy – 5 – review to come
- Parachutes by Kelly Yang – 4.25
- They/Them/Their by Eris Young – 3.75 – review to come
- What Momma Left Me by Renée Watson – 3.5 – review to come
- Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson – 5
- The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo – 3.5
- Damn Honey by Marie Lotte Hagen and Nydia van Voorthuizen – 3.5
My favourite physical read (also counting ebooks) of the month was Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson, but I definitely also foresee A River of Royal Blood to be on my favourites of 2020 list. I only listened to one audiobook, Parachutes, but I did love that one! However I’m not sure if it will end up on a favourites list.
And like that we’ve already passed another month and did another wrap up. I hope to see you again for my next posts (and my next wrap up in a month!) Don’t forget to tell me how many books you read in July!
