July Wrap Up + Hiatus Announcement

Hello, loves!

Its another month, which means its time for another monthly wrap up, albeit late.

What I did in July?

July was another mostly inactive month on the blog because I was so busy with uni work and tests, and because WordPress wasn’t letting to write anything when I had the time. But despite, the busyness of the month I managed to read a few books, make some posts of bookstagram and post something on the blog.

The Black Veins by Ashia Monet

⭐⭐⭐⭐★|4.5 stars

I love this book. Love everything about it from the characters to the plot and the magic system. I love the Guardians and their different personalities. I loved the diversity and representation in the book. I loved how it focused on other kinds of loves and bonds, rather than romantic love which most YA fantasy books seem to have an element of.

I highly recommend it 💗

The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole (Immortals After Dark #0.5)

⭐⭐⭐⭐| 4 stars.

Nikolai and Myst have always been one of my favourite characters since high school, I enjoyed reading their story again.

A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole (Immortals After Dark #1)

⭐⭐⭐⭐| 4 stars.

I absolutely loved this book. I loved the characters, I loved how they grew, especially Emma. I loved Kresley Cole’s writing as always.

No Rest For The Wicked by Kresley Cole (Immortals After Dark #2)

⭐⭐⭐⭐| 4 stars.

I absolutely loved this one! Although I’ve read the Immortals After Dark series before, there are some books in the series like this one that I hadn’t read, and reading it now, I loved it. I loved the characters in this one also and the story and writing was amazing.

Wicked Deeds on a Winter’s Night by Kresley Cole (Immortals After Dark #3)

⭐⭐⭐⭐| 4 stars.

You know the answer already, I loved it!

Deliverance by Jane Henry.

⭐⭐⭐⭐| 4 stars.

I liked this book. I liked the way it handled BDSM in a safe and respectable way. I liked that it had mental illness rep. However, my biggest problem with it was how they wouldn’t use the world disability or disabled to describe well, a disabled person, but rather use ‘special needs’. Technically, it was actually a neurodivergence, by the word special needs rubbed wrongly off me, but otherwise it was a nice book.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber.

⭐⭐⭐⭐| 4 stars.

I loved Caraval. I loved the depiction of a siblings bond. I loved the concept of the book — a game that seemed all too real or was it? —, the setting and the writing. I really loved it, it was a month’s favourite.

The Wrap Up: May+June

The Black Veins

Unfortunately, this month I will be going on another blogging hiatus, because of my finals for this semester which begin next week up until the end of the month. Although, I might still make some posts this month if i can, but I’d rather you all know that’ll be mostly available. I might also be a bit inactive on bookstagram, but relatively I’ll be a lot more active there on here.


I hope you all have an amazing month! And a great day 💗

  1. It’s nice that you had so many four star books! July was also a lucky month for me, I loved most every book I read. Also I’m looking forward to seeing your posts when you get back from your hiatus! I hope finals season goes well for you!

  2. Good reading month. I wasn’t a fan of Caraval, but not so much that I don’t think I will continue the series – I want to see where it goes.

    Good luck with finals!
