July Wrapup + August TBR!

Hey everyone, and welcome to my July Wrapup + August TBR! I decided to combine the two since this post is already a couple of days late.. But July was INSANE (insane is my word of the month). I read a lot of awesome books!! I've decided to do things a little differently; I'll only include:

  • My top favorites
  • Most disappointing reads
  • Link up my Weekly Book Hauls
Here we go!


Top Favorites of July: (links lead to my review!)
This one was ohmygoodness one of my favorites of the year. SO. Amazing. 
Not only was this one steamy, it dealt with some issues that were really important and tied together the story very well.
A re-read, and just as amazing the second time through. LOVE this dystopian world.
Such a cute, adorable book! One of my favs of 2012 for sure!
  • The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
*Review up soon*. This was like even better than book one. Serious.

Most Disappointing Read: (links lead to my review)
I wasn't exactly expecting much out of this one, since I hadn't heard much about it, but this was the lowest rating of the month. 

Weekly Book Hauls: (links lead to the post)


Time for the August TBR! I managed to complete all but one book last month, so I think I'm doing great! I have so many review books to get done with this month. It's pretty much the last month of summer (GASP) and I won't have as much time to read.

August TBR pile: (excludes audio books, since those are random!)
  • The Death Cure by James Dashner
  • The Kill Order by James Dashner
  • Glitch by Heather Anastasiu 
  • Beautiful Disaster by Jaime McGuire
  • Inbetween by Tara Fuller
  • Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
  • Speechless by Hannah Harrington
  • Burn For Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian
  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel 
  • Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel
  • Skinny by Donna Cooner

WOW. Yep. That's 12 books. I have no idea if I'll be able to do that. But I'll definitely try! 

What books did you read in July?

What's in your August TBR?

Let me know in the comments or link me to yours!


  1. You read some really fabulous books in July, Jen! I loved Pushing the Limits and The Catastrophic History of You and Me, both were seriously awesome contemporary reads. And The Maze Runner is one of my all time favorites! I have like a bajillion review books to get through in August, since school unfortunately starts, and I want to get done with all of them. I'll be looking forward to all your reviews! <3

  2. GAAAAH You always get the best books!! :D After all the hype and awesome reviews, I've wanted to read Pushing The Limits, but it's always out of stock! (says something, hmm? :/) The Catastrophic History of You and Me was a very cute book too ^-^ Haha, enjoy August with your 12 books in hand!!
