July Wrap-Up | 2020

Writing and posting this wrap-up on time this month! I had a pretty solid reading month, including my binge of the House of the Dominion series. Man those books are powerful. It’s been a long time since I’ve stayed up til 3AM reading to finish a book in one sitting, let alone three. Review wise… not so great. I still blame my sudden move, new job, and very insistent boss. But I am back on track and with pleeeenty of books to review, as well as some super exciting book tours in the upcoming months!

Books Read:

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – 4/5

  • Overall enjoyable, though I could have done without Nina/Mattias entirely. Locke Lamora has ruined heist novels for me

The House of Shattered Wings by Aliette de Bodard – 4.5/5

  • Way more gruesome than expected but overall fantastic. Loved the fallen angels and colonization commentary. I read this entire series in three days, one book per day

The House of Binding Thorns by Aliette de Bodard – 5/5

  • Thuan and Asmo!! We get Thuan and Asmo! My favorite of the series

The House of Sundering Flames by Aliette de Bodard – 4/5

  • Thuan and Asmo learn to be a semi-functional couple. Overall solid but the interest levels in different POVs was too different

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black – 3/5

  • A better YA fae book than ACOTAR but still too high-school-y

The Tyrant Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson – 4/5

  • My most anticipated book of 2020! Solid installment to the Masquerade series and people who didn’t like Monster will certainly be happy, but not my favorite of the series
