Wrap Up July 2020

Books I read in July:

  1. The Harpy by Megan Hunter: 3 out of 5 stars (review)
  2. All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson: 3 out of 5 stars
  3. I Hold A Wolf By The Ears by Laura van den Berg: 4 out of 5 stars (review)
  4. Constellations by Sinéad Gleeson: 5 out of 5 stars
  5. The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes: 3.5 out of 5 stars

I also DNFed Beach Read by Emily Henry. I might come back at another time but for now the book was just not what I expected and was in the mood for.

Favourite of the Month:

Constellations by Sinéad Gleeson is as incredible as everybody said. I cannot recommend it highly enough – I listened to the audiobook and just love the way Gleeson narrates her essays.

Stats(ish):

I read five books this month. Of these books four were written by women. I read two non-fiction books, one thriller, one short story collection, and one literary fiction novel.

Currently Reading:

Still too many books. Whenever I am reading more than four books it really messes with my reading mojo, so I am currently trying to finish as many books as possible before starting new ones. Ideally I would get it down to zero because I love being able to choose all new books but we’ll have to wait and see if that will happen.

    1. I also really, really enjoyed The Unspoken Name but I was reading it when lockdown began and my concentration was shot. I am hoping to get back to it and finish it over the next week. I thought the mix of sci-fi and fantasy was fantastic!

  1. yesss! Constellations!!! I’m so glad you loved it — I cannot wait for whatever else Sinead Gleeson decides to write (I think she’s writing a novel??) because whatever it is, it’s going to be amazing! Also super looking forward to reading I Hold a Wolf by the Ears this month 🙂

    1. Constellation was ridiculously brilliant! I am tempted to pick up one of the short story anthologies she edited, hoping that she is as good at chosing voices as she is at writing. And yes, I will also read whatever she writes next!
      I Hold A Wolf By The Ears is really well worth reading!
