This month (July,) I had a very ambitious TBR, and I also bought a boatload of books, then got overwhelmed and was only able to get through six books, one of them being an ARC. I have to say that even though I didn’t get through all the books I originally intended to get through, the ones I did read were quality-read for me. Out of the six books I read, five were 5/5 stars, and one was 4/5 stars. That’s a pretty good reading month to me.

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

This book was 5/5 stars, and I am in love with Patroclus and Achilles. The Song of Achilles was a retelling of Greece’s greatest hero through the point of view of his best friend and lover, Patroclus. Madeline did a fantastic job with this retelling. Absolute beautiful writing. I have a full review up on the blog.

Iron Widow by Xiran Zhao (ARC)

Iron Widow was one of my most anticipated fall 2021 book releases, and I was beyond excited when I received an advance copy to review. I rated this book 4/5 stars. It was an entertaining read with an exciting concept with a strong female main character, rich in Chinese culture, and a feminist agenda everyone needs to get on board. Full review also on the blog.

Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

Get a Life, Chloe Brown was yet another five stars read for me. This book was a fun read that touched on some sensitive topics while keeping the story lighthearted, sweet, and steamy. Full review

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

Nine Perfect Stranger was another five stars read for me. It kept me guessing, kept me on the edge of my seat. It was a fun read, and I can’t wait to watch the TV show coming on Hulu on August 18th.

One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

Yet another five stars read! I love sapphic romances, and this so far must be one of my new favorites. The concept was fascinating, and I loved the sci-fi aspect of the story. 5/5 stars!

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

And my final book for July was Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Six of Crows is the first book of a duology that is part of the Grishaverse, and it takes a few years after the Shadow and Bone Trilogy. Hands down, the Six of Crows books are the best books of the Grishaverse universe. I don’t even have words to describe how much I loved this book. 5/5 stars!
