For the past few months I’ve been setting myself lists of books that I’m planning to read… to varying degrees of success. June’s TBR started off really well but tailed off in a mighty reading slump that meant I only read three of the seven books I had planned!
I’ve just about pulled myself out of the slump (with the help of some romance books) so I don’t want to push it by making this month’s TBR too hefty. So, without further rambling, here’s my super chill plan for July!
These Hollow Vows by Lexi Ryan
Blurb: Brie would do anything before making a deal with the Fae; death is better than their vicious schemes. But when her sister is taken by the sadistic king of the Unseelie court, there is nothing Brie wouldn’t do to get her back-including making a deal with the king himself to steal three magical relics from the rival Seelie court. Gaining unfettered access to the Seelie court is easier said than done. Brie’s only choice is to pose as a potential bride for the Seelie Prince, Ronan-a prince who’s not quite as wicked as she once thought. Unwilling to let her heart distract her, she accepts help from a band of Unseelie misfits with their own secret agenda. But as Brie spends time with their mysterious leader, Finn, she finds herself struggling to resist his seductive charm. Caught between two dangerous courts, Brie must decide who to trust with her loyalty… and with her heart.
Ghosts by Dolly Alderton
Blurb: 32-year-old Nina Dean is a successful food writer with a loyal online following, but a life that is falling apart. When she uses dating apps for the first time, she becomes a victim of ghosting, and by the most beguiling of men. Her beloved dad is vanishing in slow motion into dementia, and she’s starting to think about ageing and the gendered double-standard of the biological clock. On top of this she has to deal with her mother’s desire for a mid-life makeover and the fact that all her friends seem to be slipping away from her…
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas
Blurb: Feyre, Rhys and their friends are working to rebuild the Night Court and the vastly changed world beyond after the events of A Court of Wings and Ruin. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can’t keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated – scars that will have a far-reaching impact on the future of their court.
And as a bonus, I’m going to have a repeat of May and commit to getting through some more of my review copies that are patiently waiting on my shelves.
Do set a monthly TBR? Or maybe you’re a mood reader? How do you decide what you’ll read next? I’d love to know!
