Since last month was such a heavy haul, I went easy on the bank this month and stuck pretty well to my “nothing but kindle sales” book ban. I only purchased one physical book, and a few ebooks; the rest were ARCs and giveaway prizes! My reading this month was awesome, though, so I’ll start with my wrap-up!

I really enjoyed ‘The Queen of the Tearling’! It’s not your average Fantasy and the heroine is great, especially in this first book of the trilogy.

Holy Moly! You read so many books! The cover for All the Crooked Saints looks sooo pretty! What was your favorite book you read in July?
Thank you! July was a good month for me, no doubt! I think if I had to pick just one favorite for July, it was probably Warcross.
