Monthly Wrap Up and TBR (July-August)

It’s been a crazy busy month, so I sadly have not gotten much reading done – but I’ve have accomplished a lot in other places. I can’t wait until everything settles down though and I can properly read. The book withdrawal is real. But more importantly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARRY POTTER!

Books I Read in July:


Hunted by Meagan Spooner

This was a unique take on the Beauty and the Beast fairytale, but while I enjoyed it – it wasn’t my favourite retelling. You can read my thoughts here.

 Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer

I missed the world of the Lunar Chronicles so much and didn’t realize quite how much until I experienced the beauty of this graphic novel. You can read my thoughts here.

Shhhh… I’ve never even seen the movie but I’ve read the books. Is that weird? Because it’s not a movie being based upon a book situation. I think theses are sort of in-between situations. I don’t even know.. I just saw it and decided to read it. I’m as confused as you are. You can read my mini-review here.


Graceling by Kristen Cashore

I had never actually read the synopsis for this book, so I just assumed it was about fairies. I have no idea why. But I saw the audiobook available at my library and decided to listen to it – you can read my thoughts here.


This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Loved this book so much and I can’t wait to read Our Dark Duet. You can read my review here.

Books I Want To Read (or Finish) in August:


League of American Traitors by Matthew Landis


Our Dark Duet by V.E. Schwab

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I got this book in my Owlcrate this month and I’m so excited to read it!

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

This book is so pretty and it’s about a circus – so yes please!


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

I don’t know how quickly the Wizarding World book club plans to read the books in the series, so I may or may not be re-reading this next month.


Are there any books that are coming out in August that you are super excited to read? What books should I add to my mountain of a TBR? Let me know in the comments below!

    CanNOT wait to see your thoughts on Daughter of the Burning City. I’ve been so excited for it, but I’ve seen barely any reviews for it. And I’m so on the fence about buying it so I’m going to hold on it until I see your review for it. XD Fantastic month, and I’m hoping you’ll have a fantastic August, Kyera!! ❤

      I’ll let you know as soon as I read it! I have it on hold from my library, so it’s not in my possession yet. I’m just in love with the cover and hope it’s fantastic!

        Ahhhhh yay! But yes, please keep me up to date! 🙂 I saw it at the bookstore the other day and it is SO pretty. But I’m with you – so hoping it’s fantastic so we can justify the cover love. XD

  5. Weekly Wrap Up: July 31-August 30 – Kyera's Library Avatar

    […] I feel a little disappointed in myself because I was so busy that I didn’t get to read very much, but at the same time I accomplished a lot in the real world.. so I guess I have to let it go. You can check out the books I read last month and plan to read next month here. […]
