July + August Wrap Up

Top Ten Tuesday.jpg

Apparently two month wrap up combinations are my new thing, which I don’t WANT but I’ll take what I can get. I’ve been finding blogging and reading for the past few months to be a bit of a challenge and it’s starting to feel more like a job than a hobby. I’m considering taking AN OFFICIAL hiatus but I’ll cross that bridge when the time comes. For now let’s take a look at my piddly wrap up and hope things look up!

Books Read: 8

Dark Matter by Blake CrouchThe Couple Next Door by Shari LapenaSaga, Vol. 9 by Brian K. VaughanThe Woman in the Window by A.J. FinnThe Umbrella Academy, Vol. 1 by Gerard WayHarrow County, Vol. 1 by Cullen BunnIn an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuireThe Wicked + the Divine, Vol. 7 by Kieron Gillen

I have to say I did enjoy all of my reads with the exception of “The Couple Next Door”, which was pretty lackluster. I thought the premise sounded decent enough and didn’t quite understand how it could be that unenjoyable for the others that read it. Now I understand. It was just “blah”. Otherwise everything was pretty great with the stand-outs being “Dark Matter” and “In An Absent Dream” with “Saga,Vol: 9” BREAKING MY HEART!

Posts Done in July & August:

May + June Wrap Up

June + July + August Releases I’m Excited For!

February – July Book Haul (It’s A Lot!)

Normally I’d have a little spot here for my Bookstagram posts but I didn’t do ANY of that last month so it’s blank but if you want to see some of my bookish photos my handle is @thesassybookgeek!

Currently Reading:

His Hideous HeartSea Witch Rising (Sea Witch, #2)Wonderland: An Anthology

Trying to finish up these review copies! “His Hideous Heart” is an anthology of Edgar Allan Poe retellings and so far it’s pretty good but something about it hasn’t thoroughly captivated me yet. “Sea Witch Rising” lives up to the expectations of it’s predecessor so far, love the atmosphere and writing! “Wonderland” is an anthology of horror themed ‘Alice in Wonderland’ retellings. So far it’s a bit strange but there are a few good ones so I’m pushing on!

    I think taking a break from blogging is super healthy once in a while, so I think it’s a good decision.❤️ I love In An Absent Dream so much, I can’t wait for the next book !! 😍

      So glad it isn’t just me, haha! I’m over here pretending like I haven’t been super sporadic with blogging and reading for half the year! 🙂

    I hope that your break has been lovely, Heather, and I hope that you’re taking care of yourself! ❤ That Wonderland retelling sounds so intriguing! I'm always here for dark Alice retellings, so I'll be sure to look more into that one. Happy reading!
