I hereby dedicate this month to all the library books I took out at once… Which means those are pretty much going to be the entirety of my July TBR.
1. The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde
Saw this at my library, and decided to pick it up. I’m always down for some bi girl rep, so when I saw my library had this on the YA New Release shelf, I wanted to snag it. I guess it’s also a way to distract myself until Queens of Geek comes back so I can read that, too.
2. A People’s History of the Vampire Uprising by Raymond A. Villareal
The title caught me as I was waiting to check out with my other books, on the 7-day shelf, and so here I am, already having to renew it once. But I worked at the library for three years, so I’m pretty sure I can renew it as many times as I wanted to (though, I won’t, because I’ll feel bad). But I’m all for first-hand “accounts” of vampires taking over the United States.
3. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
The image of the cover really doesn’t do this book justice because it is gorgeous in person. My third TBR book is, yet again…from the library. But! Plot twist! It’s from another library than the one I usually go to! I usually don’t read short stories, but I love Leigh Bardugo, so here I am. I’m pretty excited to read these because I also love the Grishaverse.
4. Renegades by Marissa Meyer
Am I reading this out of spite because of a certain review on Goodreads saying how they couldn’t read it because of two gay-dad side characters? Possibly. But I am also pretty excited for the story, too, so it isn’t all spite. I promise.
5. Slasher Girls and Monster Boys by April Genevieve Tucholke
Oh, look, an anthology! That’s something new. I usually don’t read anthologies, but I’ve read this one before a few years ago and remember loving it. I forgot all of the stories inside, so hopefully it’ll be just as good as I remember.
6. Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine
A friend of mine recommended this a few years ago, and I finally got around to picking it up. I’m not quite sure what it’s about, but I trust my friend’s judgement, so hopefully I like it! (This is also the same friend who recommended Six of Crows, so honestly, I’m assuming I’ll love this.)
7. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I’m so excited for this book; it’s gonna be great to see where this is going to take all the characters… Like I did with The Hunger Games, I’m going to be listening to it on audiobook, too! I hope it’s just as good as the first one.
So what are you all reading for July? Any of these books? Let me know!
Until next time~
