Bookish Stuff,  TBRs & Wrap Ups

July ’17 Wrap Up

July was definitely a month of rereads. Although I did read a bunch of new books (even a wonderful ARC!), but I loved rereading some old favourites. I also started reading the Shade of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab and I’m so excited! Want to know what else I read in July? Read it in my wrap up!

The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy (ARC)

During my holiday in Germany I received an ARC of The Disappearances and it’s such a wonderful book! It’s magical and mysterious and I was so happy to read it before the official release. I could go on and on about how much I love this book, but you should really just read it in my review.

To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han (Audiobook)

Oooooh my goodness, this is such an unexpected gem! So many people love this trilogy but it really wasn’t up my alley at all. I decided to start listening to the audiobook and it made me so incredibly happy! Like, I was just laughing out loud and giggling and it was probably one of my favourite audio experiences.

Review on Goodreads

The Orphan Queen & The Mirror King (Rereads) + Novellas by Jodi Meadows

I read The Orphan Queen in november 2015, before I’d really gotten into reading YA and I loved it so much! It’s one of the books that really got me into it and it’s such a special book! I hadn’t read the novellas yet, so I planned a reread to read them and I enjoyed them so much! It was great reading from Tobiah’s perspective and his opinion on the ‘nameless girl’ and her gang pre-Orphan Queen. And, of course, The Mirror King made me cry again!

Crown of Midnight & Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (Rereads)

I read The Assassin’s Blade and Throne of Glass last month, and decided to continue with these two to prepare for the release of Tower of Dawn in September. I read way faster than I thought I would, so I only read these two and read Queen of Shadows and Empire of Storms closer to September. I love them so much more than I thought I did! Reading these books again just made me so incredibly happy!

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

When I realised my ToG reread was going way too fast, I decided to start reading the Shades of Magic series. I planned on reading this during my holiday in Germany, but I didn’t. I kind of regret waiting to long to pick this up, though, it’s so incredible! I literally finished within two days, I devoured it! Victoria Schwab is an incredible author and I can’t wait to read the rest of this trilogy!

Review Coming Soon!

Current Reads

I’m currently reading A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab, and Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling. I’ve been struggling through this last book for months now! I need to make it my goal to finish it this month, but it feel so forced! I haven’t picked up A Gathering of Shadows for a few days, but I’m so excited to continue! The Shades of Magic trilogy has been absolutely incredible so far, oh my goodness!

What did you read last month? Did you manage to read everything off your July TBR?


  • Elizabeth Hunter

    Heir of Fire is by far my favorite Sarah J Mass book! The character development is just perfect.
    I need to pick up some V.E Schwab books – I keep seeing them and can’t wait to check them out!

    • Ayla

      I can definitely see why Heir of Fire is your fave! I really liked it better the second time around, but but I don’t think it’ll ever be a favourite. V.E. Schwab’s books are so wonderful! I’ve only read about three of them but her writing is incredible! Hope you’ll enjoy them once you pick them up! <3
