Month in Review: July

July started out slow, but picked up after I gave up on the DNF. I kept trying to force myself to give it one more chapter, but I just couldn't connect with the characters. Once I stopped forcing myself, I started gobbling up books. It was a really great month. Six out of eight books were 4 Stars or higher, two being 5 Stars. My choices were also very skewed towards Urban Fantasy this month due to review requests. Of the right books, six were Urban Fantasy, one was Paranormal Young Adult, and one was Steampunk. I know I say it every month, but I'm gonna try to read more Paranormal Romance this month.

July: 8

Spell Bound by Kelley Armstrong (4 Stars)
Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz (3 Stars)
My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland (5 Stars)
Dead Iron by Devon Monk (DNF)
Blood Law by Jeannie Holmes (4.5 Stars)
Black Night by Christina Henry (4.5 Stars) review coming soon
Hard Spell by Justin Gustainis (4.5 Star) review coming soon
Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep (5 Stars) review coming soon

So what did everyone else read in July?

  1. Shows how we all have similar and then different tastes. Now I loved Dead Iron from the first page, and yet I had a hard time getting interested in Blood Law. I had really looked forward to Blood Law, but just couldn't get into it. I might try again later - sometimes I do end up liking a book after putting it aside for a while. I also really enjoyed My Life As a White Trash Zombie. That one was pretty good. :)
