July Top 5

OH hey last day of July. I think I say this every month, but how in the world did we get here? I don't know about you, but my July has been kind of life-altering in a scary, but great, way. Caralyn has been doing a fab job keeping up the blog while I've been out - I've popped in here and there, but she's been pretty much running the show. It's hard to, you know, have a life AND maintain 6 blog posts a week, so I've been very happy to have someone to rely on. Anyhow - I've still managed to sneak a few books into my schedule and I have read some pretty awesome stuff. This month, though, Caralyn and I are splitting our top five. Here are the books that rocked our world in July:

1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Hannah says: Such awesome fantasy. This novel is joining an already rich genre and it so deserves a spot up there as one of the best. Read my review here

2. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
Hannah says: It's been a few weeks since I read this incredible book and I still miss these characters. Whenever I see the book cover my heart leaps. I think it's safe to say this book is pretty permanently etched into my mind. Read my review here

3. Rift by Andrea Cremer
Hannah says: YES. Andrea Cremer's new series is SO wicked and intense. I loved the Nightshade series, so it's pretty epic to see where Calla's world all started. Review to come. 

4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Caralyn says: I loved the futuristic retelling of Cinderella and the strength of Cinder's character - it definitely has its own innovative twists on the classic story. Read my review here

5. Wings of the Wicked by Courtney Allison Moulton
Caralyn says: This sequel to Angelfire was packed with more romance and more butt-kicking angels. Still love Ellie's sarcasm and Will's selflessness. Wellie forever! Review to come. 

What were your top reads this month?

  1. I just checked my list for the month and to be honest, I don't really have a top read. Everything I read this month left me feeling, "Eh."

    Must do better next month.
