Hauls Wrap Ups

July ’17 Haul & Wrap-up

July 31, 2017

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!

    So. Many. Books! Awesome, I wish I could read that much 🙂
    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.

      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.
