July TBR

I am a little behind! I promised this post yesterday! So here is the drill down...
Next week, beginning of the week (Monday - Wednesday): Scorch Trials and Death Cure Review
Tuesday / Thursday : A Top 10 Post
End of the Week: Wrap up Over Drive Media
So no promised dates. :D
Here is a nice little photo of my TBR for July
So let's talk about what we have here!

  1. In the Time of the Dragon Moon  by Janet Lee Carey- This is a library read that I am about 1/2 way through
  2.  Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Saenz- There has been an extreme amount of hype on Instagram about this book! Instagram friends, don't let me down!
  3.  Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda  by Becky Albertalli- This is an audiobook and if I hadn't known I would have thought that Jesse Eisneberg was the narrator. I was hooked immediately
  4. Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas- I've been wanting to read this for awhile, if you don't know it's a collection of short stories that looks amazing. I can't wait to dive back in
  5. Eden West by Pete Hautman- Another Library read, awesome cover and story sounds appealing. 
  6.  Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell- Another book that I have seen and has a lot of hype, I have rented the audiobook via Overdrive 
  7.  Clariel by Garth Nix- I have read almost everything he has ever written so this was a no brainer
  8.  To Hold the Bridge by Garth Nix- See above
  9. Abhorsen by Garth Nix- This is actually a reread but my first time to listen to the audiobook
  10. Half Wild by Ally Green- Another Library read, I've started a little bit and am very intrigued
  11. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige- Another Instagram book recommendation, that seems like a wonderful twist on the Oz story, I've read Wicked and I am a HUGE Once Upon A Time fan, so I am interested to compare and contrast 
  12. Dance of Dragons by George R. R. Martin- Because really, I have to, this has been on my shelf for... about a year? 
  13. Fairest of All by Serena Valentino- I saw this at Barnes and Noble and had to have it... again I love Once Upon A Time and traditional fairytales and retellings and twist, needless to say this may be my most anticipated read of July
  14. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman- A lot of hype in the book world about these books, I am excited to read them
  15. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge- Beautiful cover, lot's of hype, hope it lives up
  16. Just Ella by Margaret Haddix- Another faitytale retelling that I picked up on a book haul at Barnes and Noble, I love the cover and the story seems interesting... we'll see

So that's it, for now... I have some interesting things going on in my personal life and in the book blogging sphere so there maybe some changes to this list. Hopefully I can get them all read.

That's all I have for now

Wind to thy wings.
