July has come and gone and it was a blazing hot month. The good news is that I was able to read a bit more than usual. Keep reading to find out what I read in July!
I mostly stayed in the fiction genre and read fantasy novels. Three of the novels were sequels and one of them was a new series that I fell in love with and should be releasing a review in the upcoming week. Here are the lists of the four books I read (or currently am reading) in July.
What I Read in July
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling (currently reading)
- The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
- The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne
My Reading List
I started off the month by reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Some people give this novel a hard time but I enjoyed it. It does have some plot holes but who’s really counting?
After that, I decided to read The Great Hunt, the second novel in The Wheel of Time series. This was tricky because I was not enthralled with the series after the first novel, The Eye of the World but decided to stick with it and I was glad that I did. I loved it from beginning to end and I can see why this series is as popular as it is. Jordan is great at world building and I prefer it when he focuses on the plot and not the mythos of the world he created.
I decided to give The Shadow of the Gods this novel a try after coming across it on Goodreads. The blub was interesting and I am glad that I gave this novel a try. From the first page I was hooked and loved the grittiness of it and the Norse mythology it infused to its world building. Be on the lookout for a full book review in the coming days!
July was a busy month and I am glad I was able to get some reading done. Currently, I am reading the fourth Harry Potter novel but I am not too sure what I will be reading after that. What book(s) are you currently reading?
