I bring to you once again the list of books I read in the month. I decided to participate in two readathons, The Olympic Games, and the Path or Pantheon readathon. I didn’t plan it but both are mythology inspired so that was fun.
I’m not going to get too much into detail about the readathons, but I had to complete 5 prompts for each one. I tried to double books so I didn’t have to read 10 different ones, which I think I managed to do luckily. However I didn’t complete either, I had one book left for each readathon for me to consider it a success but still, I’m happy with the result!
Anyway, let’s get to the books I read in July.
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
I was so hyped about this book because it has been adapted into a TV show and I’ve heard it is funny and whatnot so I was expecting to have the time of my life while reading the book. That didn’t happen. Objectively, the book was not bad, but I just wanted to read about Crowley and Aziraphale, I didn’t care about the other characters at all. I still want to watch the TV show tho.
Fable by Adrienne Young
I enjoyed this book. This is the second book I read by this author, I loved the first one I read, so I had high expectations for this one. It didn’t necessarily let me down, but it felt like something was missing. The book was action packed the whole time and it was so easy to get into the story.
Namesake by Adrienne Young
Of course I read the sequel of Fable as soon as I finished it. I found in Namesake what I was looking for in Fable. I liked this book a lot, I liked all the characters and I had a great time reading all the new adventures Fable had to go through, like in the previous book, there was not a dull moment!
The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid
Another book I liked so so much! I knew I was going to like this one as soon as I read the synopsis and I was not wrong! I loved the world, the characters, the relationships, everything! There was a moment in which Gáspár was not that present in the story and I missed him a lot. I truly liked this book and I highly recommend it!
Ruthless People by J. J. McAvoy
After reading a few fantasy books back to back I was missing contemporary romances so I thought reading a Mafia romance was what I needed. I enjoyed this book very much. It was cliché but it somehow felt like something completely new. I think it was the fact that the heroine plays a big part of the Mafia and not only the guy like in the majority of Mafia romances.
Beauty and the Beast by Georgia Le Carre
I love Beauty and the Beast retellings, but not this one. In my opinion it doesn’t have that many elements to consider it a retelling and in the synopsis it mentioned the Mafia so I was expecting a Mafia romance which I didn’t get. I could have enjoyed this one more if the synopsis wasn’t that misleading. However, I found the romance to be cute.
And that was it! It was not a bad reading month overall. I hope August is filled with more 4 or even 5 stars reads. Tell me if you read a new favorite book in July.
Until the next post!
Happy reading 💙
