Wrap-Up: July 2018


This month had quite a few ups and downs: I had my last few exams which were incredibly stressful, but I passed, so I’m officially on summer break! I didn’t read much for the first half of the month because of my exams, but I got to read a lot in the second half. Mostly because it was 40 degrees outside so I couldn’t do much beside sit on the couch, feel gross and sticky, and read.

August is going to be a month where I don’t have to do any school related activities, so I’ll (hopefully) get to read a lot! That’s exactly why I decided to participate in #ARCAugust, and you can find my TBR here. I’m also going away for a couple of days in August, which is both very exciting, but also terrifying because of my agoraphobia. I really hope it’ll go well.


You Don’t Know Everything, Jilly P! by Alex Gino – I really enjoyed this book, and it was an incredibly important read.
Front Desk by Kelly Yang – One of my new favorite middle grade reads ever. Incredible.
Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Katherine Webber – I loved the writing in this one. Check out my full review here.
Mariam Sharma Hits the Road by Sheba Karim – Very dissapointing and kinda problematic.

Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee – I’ve been meaning to read this for so long and I’m glad I finally did, because I liked it even more than I thought I would!
Not Your Villain by C.B. Lee – I immediately picked up the sequel after finishing NYS and I enjoyed it a lot, even though I liked the previous book better.
Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie – This was kinda meh. Full review here.
Lemons by Melissa Savage – I didn’t expect to cry this much over a bigfoot story, it was wonderful.

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han – I finally picked up the final book in this series in anticipation for the movie, and I still adore the characters but the book wasn’t amazing.
Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow by Siobhan Curham – A super quick read, but I have some complicated feelings about it.
Beginner’s Guide: Love and Other Chemical Reactions by Six de los Reyes – I expected this to be a lot better, but I really liked the love interest.
Summer of a Thousand Pies by Margaret Dilloway – This was wonderful, and made me crave pies a LOT.



I’m only reading one book at the moment. I know, I know, that’s very strange for me because I’m usually reading 3 books at the same time. I don’t know what happened. Anyway, the book that I’m currently reading is an anthology called Fresh Ink and it’s edited by Lamar Giles. This book is on my #ARCAugust TBR so I’m technically cheating by starting it today, woops. I just really wanted to read something today, but I didn’t think I’d be able to start and finish a whole book in a day, in time for the readathon to start.

That’s everything I’ve read in July! Now tell me, what was the best book you’ve read this month?

    It’s been so incredibly hot here as well for the past week. I worked 6 hours today and I got home more than 2 hours ago but I’ve barely moved from this spot and don’t even have the energy to read.

    I hope your trip goes well!! And I love all the MG on this list! 😀 Front Desk sounds super cute and important.

    Aaah and you’re reading Fresh Ink I’m so jealous, I hope you enjoy it!

    I wrote a list of my favourites in my queued wrap-up post, but: A Duke by Default, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, Gale by Lyssa Chiavari, and the Gunnerkrigg Court series were probably my favourites.
