Happy Monday bookish people! I know this post is going up on the first day of August when I usually post them at the end of the month I am writing about but July was quite the month! First there was YALC and Comic Con which I don’t really want to say that much about because it will turn into a rant, I did not have a good experience there this year because of the organization and well, they had no idea what to do with people who have disabilities so the less said about it the better. Then I found out I had gotten covid from YALC and I was so poorly, I still am a bit even a month on, I couldn’t do much. I rounded the month out with a trip to Bristol and a trip to Hampshire so I am pretty exhausted.
A good thing that happened this month is that I opened my Etsy shop! I have been thinking about this for a while and I have finally done it. I am creating bookish bookmarks, on card, wood and made of resin. If you’d like to visit my shop is TheBlindScribe
Anyway, my reading this month wasn’t great, I read some okay books but no books that I was really invested in. My book reviews of the books I did read will be coming on Mondays throughout August!
- The Marlow Murder Club by Robert Thorogood – I did read this and actually I quite enjoyed it but I had one very specific issue with it which I will talk about in my book review of it.
- A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn – I did not read this book
- Portrait of a Thief by Grace D. Li – I did not read this
- The Box in the Woods by Maureen Johnson – I did not read this book either
- Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead by Elle Cosimano – I haven’t read this book
- The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton – I haven’t read this book yet either
- Nine Lives by Peter Swanson – I did not read this
- Daughters of Night by Laura Shepard Robinson – I started this book a while ago but I haven’t continued with it yet
- The Three Dog Problem by S J Bennett – I did read this!
- The Mystery of Three Quarters by Sophie Hannah – I also read this book!
- The Perfect Escape by Leah Konen – I did not read this book
Overall, I read three books this month which considering how poorly I was and how much has been going on this month is pretty good, I’m happy with it.
That’s it for my July wrap-up! I hope you all enjoyed it, my August TBR is coming on Friday!
