What I’ve Read – July Books

The White Night The Dark Man Review The Girl from the Well Review Ghost Camera Review Can You Survive a Zombie Apocalypse Review The Dead Lands Review Zombie Park Review Tau Zero Review Analogue Throne of Glass Review Impact Winter Review





















I felt kind of disappointed at how many books I’ve read so far this month – until I realized I was still doing about 1 per day. So, there’s that. Want a mini yay/meh/nay pre-review? Here you go, in order of books from top to bottom.

Yay. Yay. Yay. Yay. Yay. Meh. Nay. Yay. Meh. Nay. Yay.

Looks like it’s been a pretty good reading month so far, right? Then why do I feel so ‘meh’ overall about what I’ve read??

What I’m Reading – July Books

Fringe Runner Marionettes ReviewThe Archived Oy Yew Review




Sker House












Except for The Archived, I’m really struggling with these books. They’re not bad – any of them – I just can’t muster up any interest in them. So authors, if you’re reading this and wondering why I don’t have your book read yet – this is why. It’s not your book, it’s me, and it’s not fair to the books if I push through this right now and end up just feeling negative about the book when that might not be what’s true. You know?

What’s up next – July and August Books

Fury By Summer's Last Twilight Land of the Hoosier Dawn Escapee Bloodwalker















Now, to be fair, I’ve dabbled in almost all of these books, but haven’t made any appreciable progress, so I haven’t counted them on my What I’m Currently reading. I just feel like I’m in a ridiculous slump right now. Nothing is igniting any bookworm passion in me.

So, what are you guys and gals reading? Is there a book you’ve read recently that you absolutely can’t help but gush over? Leave me a link to the review and I’ll check it out. Maybe it’ll kick-start my bookwormy heart.  I need something to poke me in the butt to get my interest rekindled. This is seriously driving me nuts.

  1. A lot of those look really good! 🙂

  2. My copy of The Archived arrived this morning but I have quite a few other things to read first, including This Savage Song, also by Schwab. I have High-Rise coming up fairly soon too which promises to be nasty, weird and dystopian. If it’s any good, I’ll let you know 🙂

    • High-Rise, isn’t that the one being adapted/already adapted into a movie starring Hiddleston?

      After reading The Archived, I’ll definitely be looking for more of her books I think. I’ll probably be reading This Savage Song about the same time you’re reading The Archived!

Talk to me!

  • I love Audible. Tons of books, fantastic narrators, good prices.
