Wrap Up || July

Hi loves,

And then it was August.. Which means I get to wrap up my reading month of July. I ended up reading 19 books. 10 physical ones and 9 digital ones. I’ve had an amazing month reading wise and I can’t wait to find out what I’ll read in August (spoiler; already on book five for this month). Anyway, let’s kick this wrap up off shall we?

Passion on Park Avenue by Lauren Layne1. The first book that I read in July was the then newest release by Lauren Layne. Lauren is one of my absolute go-to authors when I need a funny romance book that I’ll finish quickly. Passion on Park Avenue was nothing less than that. I absolutely loved it. It was fun, quirky and I flew through it! Star_rating_4_of_5

2. The second book that I read in July was a reread of a book that I read aAt Any Price by Brenna Aubrey few years ago. At Any Price is a great book if you’re in the mood for something funny yet mysterious. I like the prompt where the heroine sells her virginity, because she takes matters in her own hand and makes sure it’s hers to give and not someone else’s to take.  Star_rating_4_of_5

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston3. Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston might be my favourite book in July, and really high up there on my list for 2019 books. It was so cute! Alex and Henry made me swoon and I know I will be rereading this book many of times now I know how much I love it. Even the audiobook was incredible, I listened and read at the same time. Star_rating_5_of_5

4. The fourth book was another reread. Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy is part ofHim by Sarina Bowen a duet and I never read the second book in said duet. Because I wasn’t really sure what the first book was about, I decided to reread it before going straight into the second one this time. I loved it a lot more this time around than I did the first time. Wes and Jamie are so cute together! Star_rating_4_of_5

Us by Sarina Bowen5. And straight into the second one. Us was even better than Him was, and I have no idea why I had to wait this long to read it.  I loved reading about what happened after Him ended. I mean I already knew some of it as I read the spin off series where they’re mentioned every once in a while but it was nice to finally know for sure what has happened.Star_rating_5_of_5

6. At the beginning of the year I decided that I was going to read or at least try to read as The Book Thief by Markus Zusakmany of my owned books that I still had to read. Currently there are at least 192 books on my shelves that I still have to read. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is a book that I read a long long time ago but never again after watching the movie. The movie kind of ruined the book for me. I decided to pick the book up again but I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I did the first time I read, which is why I only gave it Star_rating_3_of_5 this time around.

The Prenup by Lauren Layne7. Lauren Layne released The Prenup in July and I dove straight in. I was so excited for this book and I couldn’t wait to read this. It was the cutest book and as always Lauren Layne did it again. I love these kind of fake marriage kind of books, because of course they turn into real ones. This one was no different. I just love them. Star_rating_5_of_5

8. After finishing the third season of Stranger Things that ended with that Het oneindige verhaal by Michael Endescene between Dustin and Suzy, I just had to read Het Oneindige Verhaal (The Neverending Story) by Michael Ende. I also watched the movie, which I loved as much as I’ve always loved it. I didn’t enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed the movie which is why it got Star_rating_4_of_5 stars instead of the full five, but it was still incredible.

London Belongs to Me by Jacquelyn Middleton9. I’ve been really good at crossing off books that I own off of my to be read list. The next book I read was London Belongs To Me by Jacquelyn Middleton. It was a cute story but I could’ve enjoyed it more if the heroine in the story wasn’t as whiny as she was. All that happened, could’ve gone so much faster. None the less I liked the book but I’m not sure if I’ll read the second book. Star_rating_4_of_5

10. J. Daniels has been an author that when I read my first book by her, I instantly loved. Hit the Spot by J.  DanielsYet I’ve had two more books by her on my shelves and it took me over a year to continue reading them. And again, like I had with the Sarina and Elle book, I can’t believe I didn’t pick it up faster. Hit the Spot was so cute and I loved it. I flew through it and I dove straight into the third book in this series. They’re all standalones but you’ll see the characters from other books appear in the one you’re reading. Star_rating_4_of_5

Bad for You by J.  Daniels11. Bad For You was the third book in the series by J. Daniels. I might have loved this one even more than I did Hit the Spot but that had all to do with the fact that the couple was hyped up in the second book. I absolutely loved this and I can’t wait to read the fourth one, alas that won’t come out until October but I’ll be patiently waiting for it anyway!  Star_rating_4_of_5

12. As a subscriber of the newsletter that Elle Kennedy sends out, I was able to read Say Say Yes by Elle KennedyYes. It was only a novella and that’s the only reason why this gets Star_rating_4_of_5 stars. Because it was too darn short. I absolutely loved this. I read through it in less than half an hour and I would’ve loved to read 300 more pages if it was a full length novel.

Viper by Bex Hogan13. Book number thirteen of July is one that took me by surprise. I have been a subscriber to the Fairyloot bookboxes for the past year and a half. I decided to cancel my subscription at the end of June but I had received Viper by Bex Hogan I believe in February? I hadn’t picked it up yet but I decided to and absolutely loved this. I don’t often read YA books anymore but I did like this. I hope that Venom will be as good as this one was. Star_rating_4_of_5

14. Next I ticked off another unread book from my shelves. This was a Beauty and the Beastly by Alex FlinnBeast retelling that had been made into a movie with Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens that I loved when I first seen it. That being said I did like the movie more than I liked the book and that is something that hardly ever happens with me. Beastly was slow and I reaaaaally didn’t like the character of the witch. I know the book is part of a series with her, but I could’ve done without her. Star_rating_3_of_5

The Billionaire Boss Next Door by Max Monroe15. My sister has been trying to get me to read a Max Monroe book for ages as she loves them a lot. I did read one earlier this year but never more than that. I read The Billionaire Boss Next Door because it was part of a starting up series which I ended up loving so much. I love a good hate to love story and this one was incredible. Star_rating_4_of_5

16. The next one in the series by Max Monroe was My Brother’s My Brother's Billionaire Best Friend by Max MonroeBillionaire Best Friend which I might love even more than I loved the first book in the series. It was so cute and I do love the Brother’s BFF trope. This wasn’t any different. I absolutely flew through it. I could’ve loved it a little more if the hero wouldn’t doubt himself so much and just go for the heroine, because it was obvious that they belonged together. Star_rating_5_of_5

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata17. Ever since I started reading Mariana Zapata’s books in October last year, The Wall of Winnipeg and Me has been one of my favourites. I just love broody Aiden and spitfire Vanessa. The two of them are amazing together and they make each other better. There’s no one, in my opinion, that can write a slowburn romance like Mariana can. If I could reread these books every single day and read it like it was the first time reading it I would love it! Star_rating_5_of_5

18. And then I finally started and finished the final book by Mariana Zapata that I still Wait for It by Mariana Zapatahad left to be read. Wait for It tells the story of Diana and Dallas. Diana is mentioned in The Wall of Winnipeg as she’s Vanessa’s best friend and I was so happy to read about her HEA. After all that happened in Winnipeg it was nice to read that she too got an ending that she deserved. Wait for It Was cute and I loved it a lot! Star_rating_4_of_5

The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary19. And the final book that I read in July was The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. It’s a cute trope, Tiffy and Leon live in the same house, but they’ve never met. They share the same bed, Tiffy has the bed/apartment from 6 at night until 9 in the morning and Leon has it during the day. Of course they were going to meet one day and it was the cutest thing ever. I loved this so much, Beth had an amazing debut novel and I can’t wait to read more by her. Star_rating_5_of_5

And that’s it. That’s the wrap up for July. I can’t believe I’ve been reading this much but I’ve loved nearly every single one of them. One more than another but over all I’m a happy reader! I’ll be seeing you next month!
