Hello Bookworms! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend & an even better start to your week! โค I legit spent the weekend reading The Raging Ones by Krista & Becca Ritchie. I don’t usually ever have the time to read a whole book in 1 weekend but I did which means I lived & breathed this book at all hours of the day LOL! My hubby cheered me on all the way every time I reached a certain percentage & by the end I felt like I had accomplished the biggest feat! Two tiny humans on the weekends usually take up all of my time but the wonders a couple of remote control race cars can do to let Mommy read haha! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I come to you now with my July Book Haul!!! I have a mix of books I bought, was gifted, and received from the publishers so without further ado…

Heart Of Thorns

Ok….so this wasn’t my favorite box at all and it breaks my heart to admit this. It just seems like the curation was off par with what we’re used to receiving in terms of quality this go-around. i am still very excited to get this book with the red sprayed edges & the Children of Blood and Bone print is by far my MOST favorite item in this box….it’s getting framed by my desk *heart eyes*

  4. Ooooh great haul, Lilly! ๐Ÿ˜€ I am dying to get my hands on The Storm Runner. I am super stoked for that one. I got the Poppy War e-book in July too. I can’t wait to read it. I am dying to read Heroine, it sounds like everything I’m into reading and like it’s going to be so good. I’ve been hoping that it gets put on Netgalley, but haven’t seen it there yet.


  5. I agree, Fairyloot was a bit meh last month. Especially since I despise lavender. At least we now get 2 tea towels since there was that fuck up hahaha. Also The King of Bourbon Street is so good I hope you love it like I do
