It’s July you guys! I blinked and June was over… I thought July was going to be a relatively relaxed reading/blogging month for me, but I turned around and suddenly I’ve got all sorts of things going on!
And because I’m no longer doing my monthly Book Review Giveaway, I’m going to use this post to recap my reviews from the previous month, so read to the end to see what I read in June.
Here are the books I’m planning on reading in July:
Devil’s Call by J. Danielle Dorn. I’ve heard AMAZING things about this book, and I hope to join the ranks of readers who love this book!
Strange Practice (Dr. Greta Helsing #1) by Vivian Shaw. Greta Helsing is a doctor to the dead. That sounds like a fantastic story concept to me!
Entertaining Demons by Daniel I. Russell. I just added this to my pile, and it’s got some great reviews already on Goodreads. I’m looking forward to this story about a teenaged girl and the scary reality TV show she works on.
The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell. This sounds amazing, and I can’t wait to check out this tale of magic that takes place in New York City.
The Queen of Swords by R.S. Belcher. I meant to read this in June, but you know. Life always seems to get in the way! That and a way-too-big TBR.
An Oath of Dogs by Wendy N. Wagner. The cover was enough to get me to download a review copy of this book, but the story, which involves sentient dogs, sealed the deal.
Blog Tours, Author Interviews & Giveaways:
Yep, you read that right. I’m excited to be giving away a copy of Lost Boy by Christina Henry! My review and giveaway should be up this Thursday (provided all goes well) so check back then! So far I’m loving this Peter Pan story told by the infamous Hook.
I’ll be posting my review of The Truants this Friday, July 7th, and I have an interview with author Lee Markham in the works, which will be posted later this month. This book was very dark, and I enjoyed…parts of it. I’ll explain all in my review.
I’ve also got an upcoming author interview planned this month with Geoffrey Girard, whose latest book Truthers will be out next month. Look for my review and the interview towards the end of the month.
And finally, I’m on the review blog tour for Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass, which I’ll be reviewing on July 17th. I haven’t read this book in over twenty years (!!) but I’m really happy to have the chance for a reread.
