July TBR | Reigning it in!

Posted 4th July 2016 by Jordann @thebookbloglife in 2016, tbr / 0 Comments

I’ve reigned my reading in this month, so a small July TBR is on the table. I have a busy month of planning and getting ready to get married. I say I’ve cut down but that’s only by one book, and the books I’ve chose are bigguns. I don’t hold much hope for this month’s reading, but I’m not putting any pressure on myself. If I read the books, brilliant, if I don’t it doesn’t matter cause I’m getting married!!

A Court of Mist and Fury

I’m almost finished this book, and I’m desperate to finish it. A little nervous in case I really hate the ending. This is the sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses and I have to say it is ten times better than the first. I’m loving the characters development and how everything gets flipped on its head. If you haven’t picked this series up, I really recommend you do.

The Song of Achilles

I have heard a lot of great things about this book. I have an interest in Greek history and I think that I’m really going to enjoy the storyline. Apparently this book has all the feels and knowing the basic history of Achilles (thanks Troy) I can see it’s not going to end well for either of them. I’m really excited for this book and where the story will take me.

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer

Rick Riordan is an automatic buy for me. His stories are original and I love them. They always make me happy and I don’t think this will be any different. Basically I think that it’s going to be Percy Jackson but with the Norse Gods. However I definitely think there will be some twist that makes the series completely different to anything we’ve seen before.

The Queen of the Tearling

I’ve had this book on my shelf for a little while. My hand gravitated to this book, and I thought why not. I love political fiction and this seems to fit that bill spectacularly. I am having major cravings for a decent political system after finishing The Winner’s Trilogy. I’ll let you know if it lives up to my expectations and needs.

Red Rising

This is a reread and another political one. I’m just on one of those themes this month. I’m really looking forward to reliving this world because I adored this book the first time round. It had a Braveheart vibe to it. Especially at the beginning. The sequel is already on my shelf so I might dive right into that next month.

July already. I get married next month. Scary times.

What are you planning to read this month? Let me know in the comments!
