Month in Review: July 2019

July has been a quiet month. Extremely busy, of course, but quiet to the point where I almost can't remember what happened. The only thing I do recall, however, is that I read a lot of great books, and I guess that's what matters in the end... right? 

July also marked the start of the Nevernight re-read in preparation for the release of Darkdawn this September! (!!!)  I'll be picking up Godsgrave for a re-read in August and I can't wait. I don't re-read as much as I'd like to, so it's been a lot of fun to prioritize it. (I also re-read Kushiel's Chosen this month just because and it was like readng it again for the first time!) Is anyone else re-reading (or reading for the first time) in preparation for Darkdawn

As always, I've collected all of my posts from this past month and presented them here in one concise package, along with a rundown of all the books I read. How was your reading month? Did you read any great books? Have you read any of the books I read? Let me know!

(Temporary) The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter - I had to DNF this one temporarily because I just wasn't feeling it. I can tell I'm probably going to like it based on what I've heard and some other aspects, but it has a super fast-paced start with a ton of action and I could not for the life of me get into it. Definitely not a permanent DNF, so hopefully I'll get back to this one soon!
