July's TBR ~ Updated

Hey guys! 

If you read my Wrap-Up for June, then you probably saw my TBR for July.  Except that was more of a vague list, because I wasn't sure what books I would feel like reading or be able to get in the following weeks.

However, I now have a better idea of what will be on my TBR for July- so I wanted to update my list and share it with you guys!

Buddy Reads and Book of the Months

Caraval by Stephanie Garber is the Book of the Month for a book club my friend started.  I'm super excited to read it, but I have to wait a little longer to get it from my library :(

The Night Circus will be a Buddy Read on July 10th, with my friend Desara.


I will be hosting a ReadAThon later in the month, but I haven't decided which books to read for the challenges yet. So I'll let you know in my announcement post what I'll read for it!

Other TBR Books

I recieved an ARC to review for The Shadow Minds Journal by Kia Carrington-Russel. The official release date is August 6th, BTW!

I am over halfway through The Young Elites by Marie Lu, so I really need to just buckle-down and finish it.

The best news so far: I FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON Heartless by Marissa Meyer!!
So definitely will be reading this in July!

Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan, this is the last book in a trilogy that I am so excited to see how it ends!

Champion by Marie Lu, the last book in the Legend trilogy- which I sadly have not finished yet.

I have already read one book so far in July, and there will of course be more books that I try to consume this month- but this is my list to finish by the end of July!!

What's on your TBR? What are you most excited to read this month??

Thanks for reading!!

  1. I need to read Night Circus and Heartless as well. I don't know if I'll get to them this month, but they both catch my interest. Hope you get around to all of these books and enjoy them.

    1. Thanks, I hope so too!
      The Night Circus is one I've heard about forever and just kept putting off, and then it's taken me forever to even get my hands on a copy Heartless Lol.

  2. I hope you like them! The only one I’ve read is The Night Circus. It was okay.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Thanks! I hope so too, a lot of my friends love it.

  3. I have already finished one book this July too (The Cruel Prince by Holly Black) and I am hoping to finish quite a few more before the month is over. I just started reading Children of Blood and Bone, which I am hoping to finish in a day or so. After that, I NEED to read A Thousand Perfect Notes. Other than that, I am going to see how I feel and do a little bit of mood reading.

    BTW, I read The Night Circus in the beginning of the year and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED it! It was a little bit slow at times, but I loved the change of perspectives and the more realistic approach to magic. I hope that you like it too and keep us updated!

    1. Thanks! I will definitely keep you updated on The Night Circus, I hope I love it as much as I've been told I will lol.

      I have only three major books to read and review this month, but I also really want to read the other stack of 6 books too... I just want to read so much this month!
      I guess we'll see what all I finish in my July Wrap-Up :)

  4. I am super excited to read the BOTM and the Buddy Read!

    I hope you enjoy Heartless! Have you seen under the dust-jacket, yet?It is GORGEOUS! Tell me your thoughts!

    1. Thanks! I can't wait to read them too!! You're right it is pretty!! <3
      I'm still waiting to get Caraval, but I should get it soon. And Heartless will be one of the books for my ReadAThon soon!! :D
      I'm so excited!!

  5. I have a love/hate relationship with Caraval, lol. I really enjoyed the world and the game, but Scarlett nearly drove me to insanity. Also, she never bathes or washes her hands even though she wears a single dress for the duration of the game. I don't know why that stood out, but it did!

    Heartless is one of my all-time favorite reads! I cannot wait to see what you think. <3

    L @ Do You Dog-ear?

    1. Yikes, I've heard a lot of mixed things about Caraval so I'm not sure what to expect Lol.

      I'm super excited for Heartless, I've been wanting to read it since I first heard about it! <3 Marissa Meyer is one of my fav authors :)

  6. Good luck with your TBR. I've had Heartless since it came out, but I still need to read it. I also need to read Winter so I'm aiming to read that ASAP and then I can move on to other Marissa books. :)


    1. I love the Lunar Chronicles, so I'm hoping I love all of Marissa's other books too! Her writing and characters are so good!! <3
