Wrap-up: July

Hi Munchworms!

Some of you may have picked it up already, but I so was not looking forward to writing this post… Not because I’m not up to writing, not that at all!
More like.. I bought so many books this month that I should probably be really ashamed of myself because I was on a book ban but I kind of purposely ignored that little detail so now I’ll have to show the world what I did and.. Yeah.. I’m going to crawl in a closet as soon as I’ve posted this..
Did that read like a little ramble to you? If not, I failed.

Okay, let’s get this over with so I can put those piles on my TBR-shelves instead of on their current “Bought this month”-spot.
Read: Please let me put them on my shelves so my boyfriend stops giving my the stink-eye about them…

I’m going to start with all the books I’ve read this month, ha! Which are plenty actually. I read a total of… 18 books?! A huge number of these are e-ARC’s I received, though. I added a * for those. I have yet to post the reviews on some of these, so keep an eye on my blog for those!

After You – Jojo Moyes
The Notebook – Nicholas Sparks
Married in Montana – Jane Porter
The Inevitable Collision of Birdie & Bash – Candace Ganger*
It Starts With L – Cassandra Fear*
A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J. Maas
Emma in the Night – Wendy Walker*
Chasing Red – Isabelle Ronin*
Crushed – A.D. McCammon*
God Is A Woman – Michael Tavon
Kiss me in New York – Catherine Rider*
Adventures in Funeral Crashing – Milda Harris
What to Say Next – Julie Buxbaum
How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days – Megan O’Russell*
Hearts Lie – Felicity Kross
36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You – Vicki Grant*
Lost to You – A.L. Jackson

As you see, there’s one book that I DNF’d, simply because the writing style wasn’t my thing at all – too bad really, because I thought I might like it.

And now on to the thing I dreaded most about this post… My July book haul…
I can feel my cheeks heating up just thinking about what huge haul I’m going to throw at you guys… But, here we go!
And yet, before you ask I now I’m crazy. I don’t have any self-control, okay?! And I’m seriously not going book-shopping anymore for the rest of this year.
I hope…

Don’t forget to check my giveaway, if you haven’t yet!

And now I’m slowly disappearing into that giant hole called shame…

  1. I loved The Hate U Give and A Darker Shade of Magic! The Hate U Give is such an amazing book, and it’s so important too! A Darker Shade of Magic is so different from a lot of books that I have read.

    1. I pick one, then stop and pick another one. At the end I don’t know what I’m reading anymore 😂🙈
      Too books to read! 😱

    1. Thank you!
      I’m really looking forward to reading that one. I have to put myself on a “Read FairyLoot-books first”-rule since those are always new releases but I just can’t seem to get myself to do so.. Too many good books, damn it.. <.<


  2. You had a great month of reading…and I would never judge you for slipping in your book ban and buying a lot of books. I’m guilty of this regularly. I too had a large book haul this month (42 books, I believe) so…yeah. Thankfully my boyfriend has yet to be upset by this fact. He just chuckles and says that we’ll have to look for a bigger place once his lease is up on the apartment.

    1. It’s such a relief that I’m not the only one with giant book hauls 😅
      You got lucky with your boyfriend then! Mine gives me the stink-eye as soon as I spot a bookstore. 😂 Can’t blame him, but still.. Haha.

    2. Yeah, and I imagine my August book haul will be a decent sized one as well since my birthday is in August and that means lots of book presents.

      My boyfriend fell out of reading for a few years and actually stopped watching as much anime and other nerdy hobbies the past few years, but with us both being nerds, it’s reawakened that in him. A couple times I’ve come home from work lately to see him curled up in bed rereading Harry Potter, so I’m finding that being in a supportive nerd relationship is basically the greatest thing I could have ever wanted in my life.

    3. Book presents are the best! Mine is in September so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for those as well – even though everyone has the habit of giving me anything BUT books, for some reason..

      Haha, awesome that it’s like that! My boyfriend is more of a Netflix-person than anything else. He’s dyslexic so I get that reading isn’t really his favorite thing. Especially since he always gets frustrated seeing how fast I can read, which is a no-can-do for him.. He does pick up the occasional book but never finishes them, though..


  3. Wow 18 books! Great job! If you bought 30 books, then it’s not so bad considering you could read that in 2 months (I know there’ll always be ARCs and other TBR items, but still! It’s not so bad!)

    1. You’re quite right about that… I haven’t bought a single book in 2 weeks and it’s quite something already. I want to reward myself with books for that, though

    1. Hahaha, thank you!
      I totally get your envy. Even though I went competely overboard this month, there are still others with a smaller haul that are also all books I’d love to own 😂
      Thank youu!



    You’re haul has so many good books! A Darker Shade of Magic is one of my favs and I really need to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone!

  5. Wow that’s a lot of books! 😍 I wish I could read 18 in a month. Read A Quiet Kind of Thunder this month and loved it! 😊 The Husband’s Secret is great too, love Liane Moriarty.

    1. I still don’t get how I read so many though.. I’ve been on a reading spree the past month but doubt I’ll be keeping it up, haha. [Bookhangover ever since reading ACOMAF.]
      Good to know you liked those books! I’ve yet to read them, but definitely looking forward to them.
      I have two or three Liane Moriarty-books right now, but I honestly haven’t read anything of her yet. I’ve only heard good things about them, though, so I’m looking forward to reading some. 😀


    2. I need a holiday or take a break from watching my many TV shows so I can read more haha. I’ve got three of hers as well, my favourites are Big Little Lies and What Alice Forgot 😊

    1. I’m currently reading Once And For All and will probably jump on one of my eARC’s after that, but Daughter of Smoke and Bone is high on my TBR-list! I’ve been looking out to reading it for ages now, haha.
