July 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

How is it already August? I feel like Canada Day was just yesterday, and now it’s nearly autumn.

Reading Progress

I’m somehow still ahead of my Goodreads reading challenge! I read 4 books this month, and two of these were backlist titles.

I’m so glad that the library is open once again for curbside pickup — it’s so nice being able to read actual books instead of using my phone as an e-reader, especially for the many weekend afternoons I spent reading outside this month.

Book Purchases / From Publishers

I was approved for an e-ARC of Fable by Adrienne Young, which looks incredible!

I also was approved for an e-ARC of You Have a Match by Emma Lord, which is one of my most-anticipated 2021 reads. After how much I loved the banter in Tweet Cute, I can’t wait to dive into this.

Thank you to Wednesday Books for both! ❤️

Reviews

One of Us is Lying | 2 stars | Fast-paced, but predictable and with cliched characters.

Loveboat, Taipei | 2 stars | I appreciated the important issues that were brought up, but they weren’t ignored in favour of the love square.

Take a Hint, Dani Brown | 4 stars | A thoroughly enjoyable and banter-filled romance, with a romantic hero that actively challenged toxic masculinity.

Station Eleven | 5 stars | A poignant and hopeful look at what it means to be human at the end of the world.
