July Book Haul

I am separating this months post into two lots – pre and post YALC!

So before YALC I got:

  • Tarnished City by Vic James
  • Bright Ruin by Vic James (kindly sent to me by the publisher)
  • Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard
  • Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson (birthday present from the lovely Maja)
  • Jade City by Fonda Lee
  • Marked by Benedict Jacka
  • Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reingten
  • Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton
  • Lifel1k3 by Jay Kristoff
  • Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers

Not too awful (or too good, lol) considering mostly YALC books or pre orders.  Plus fairyloot and a birthday two book splurge and I’m covered.  Need to do better in August though.

  • No Fixed Address by Susin Nielsen
  • You Only Live Once by Jess Vallance
  • Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix by Julie C Dao

Phew! Not as restrained as I’d hoped, but I have actually read a couple and needed hard copies, and some of the others were free/won or very good deals…. *makes all the excuses*


So in June my TBR number went up to 95, eep.  I’ve been pretty good about powering through books in July, but some have been kindle (net galleys), or loaned books, or even a couple of sneaky audio re-reads.  So I’m not sure how much I expect that to change to be honest.  *drumrolls* My July (PRE YALC) number is:


Yay! I’m actually pretty pleased with this, given the audio/kindle content of my monthly read list.  If I add in all the YALC books, it then goes back up though; to


which is painful, but I shall just have to try and have a good August, reading wise, see if I can get it back down a bit!
