Um, so, this is very late. Very, very late. I’ve been quite busy this far in August though, I’ve had a lot of work and not a lot of free time to write blog posts. So let’s pretend half of August hasn’t passed already, haha.
Here are the books I read in July.
Saga volume 6
by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
I didn’t even know this volume had been released when I found it in a bookstore, on the actual release day I think. This is my favorite volume this far, I loved everything about it. I probably won’t write a full review so here’s my goodreads comment.
The Life List
by Lori Nelson Spielman
Like I wrote in the last wrap-up post when I listed what I was currently reading, this genre isn’t my usual cup of tea. This is more in the realm of chick-lit. But I read it over the summer, while chilling at the poolside, and it was fitting for that. It wasn’t too bad, it was entertaining enough even though I didn’t buy the main premise that a mother would force her daughter to do all these things in less than a year.
I did not think this would be good because of the terribly cheesy and clichè synopsis. And then??? It’s so good? Definitely one of my favorite books. All the characters are great, they come alive on the page. Don’t read the synopsis, especially not the one on the back of the book. Just don’t. It has nothing to do with the story at all. Ridiculous.
by Roy Jacobsen
Another Norwegian book that I listened to on audio. It’s not really my style either, but it was alright.
Crown of Midnight
by Sarah J. Maas
I started this as part of the Make Me Read readathon, but I only got 14 pages in before the readathon ended so it barely counts as ‘started’. I haven’t continued it since then either, and I might not yet. We’ll see!
This Savage Song
by V.E. Schwab
I’m praying I’ll like this better than A Darker Shade of Magic. I’ve only reached page 34 but it’s intriguing me this far.
And I Darken
by Kiersten White
WILL I EVER FINISH THIS BOOK???? Place your bets now. I’ve been reading it for about 3 or 4 months now. It’s just really hard to pick it up, but I try to read a bit every lunch break at work.

I also just realized yesterday that yesterday was actually my first year blogging anniversary 😀 Or blogiversary, if you want. Yay! I wish I’d realized earlier so I could maybe host a giveaway or something, but let’s try to remember next year. Hurray for one year!
So what’s the best and worst book you read in July? Do tell! Anything else interesting happen? Did you go on vacation?
