Happy Monday bookish people! I hope you are all having a good day today. I am so excited to be bringing you my July TBR today, not only because I have a good feeling about this month but also because it is time for the July Summer edition of the Chopped Readathon! Hosted by myself @oliviatempleto6 on Twitter/@the_blind_scribe on instagram and @Plaid_Reader_is_writing on Twitter. It is a month long readathon with prompts attached to a food item based on the theme so obviously the July theme is summer. If you are interested in joining the fun all the information can be found on the Chopped Readathon Twitter account @choppedread
Also this month I have tried to put a mystery/crime book to each prompt because… I have a PhD to write which means I need to read all the mystery books and I have a lot to get through.
Onto my TBR for July!
- for the prompt Cotton Candy – a light or easy book I chose The Marlow Murder Club by Robert Thorogood, I have heard there’s a new book in this series coming soon so I need to get around to this one
- Salt water taffy – a salty protagonist – I chose A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn, the second in the Veronica Speedwell series
- Corn dog – a book with something hidden – I chose Portrait of a Thief by Grace D. Li
- Soda – a book you are excited about – The Box in the Woods by Maureen Johnson, the fourth book in the truly devious series
- BBQ – book with a battle – I have gone very metaphorical for this one as most mysteries don’t have epic battles like the fantasy genre does so I have chosen Finlay Donovan Knocks Em Dead by Elle Cosimano
- Lobster – Centred around the ocean – Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton
- Lemonade – a yellow book – Nine Lives by Peter Swanson
- Burgers – a meaty book over 400 pages – Daughters of Night by Laura Shephard Robinson
- Ice cream – a fancy book – the Three Dog Problem by S J Bennett
- watermelon – a childhood favourite – The Mystery of Three Quarters by Sophie Hannah
- Funnel Cakes – a sweet book – Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens
- Milkshakes – a book with a location you would go in the summer – I chose The Perfect Escape by Leah Konen
That’s it for my July TBR! What are you all planning on reading in July? Leave me a comment below.
