July 2021 Reading Wrap Up

The month after my birthday is often pretty lean when it comes to hauling books. I try to read as much as I can to get through the massive stack that’s come in the previous month.

So, with that said, my book hauling should be much smaller than it was in June. Right? . . .

Free Kindle Books on my TBR

One of the worst habits I’ve picked up recently is gathering free books for my Kindle. It feels like a good chance to try them out, especially if it’s a genre or trope I’ve never read. There doesn’t feel like anything to lose if I don’t love the book.

Have you heard of, or read, any of these books? Do you know where I should start?

Books I Read in One Sitting

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

There are a couple of books that took me in so much, I just could not put them down for one second. If you’ve ever found something that’s grabbed your attention in the same way, you’ll know what I mean.

Have you finished any of these in just one sitting?

My name in books TBR

This is a challenge I’ve seen around the Internet a couple of times. The basis of it is pretty simple – just name out some books that start with each of the letters of your name. Sounds simple right?

No. For this, I’m going to list a book that I haven’t read, and it’s then my TBR of sorts. Once I’ve read it, I can come back here and talk about it. All of these books are already on my physical TBR shelf or on my Kindle, so hopefully this will be what spurs me on to actually tick them off.

Review: This Time Will Be Different by Misa Sugiura

This book did not fit any of my challenge prompts.

Blurb:

Katsuyamas never quit—but seventeen-year-old CJ doesn’t even know where to start. She’s never lived up to her mom’s type A ambition, and she’s perfectly happy just helping her aunt, Hannah, at their family’s flower shop.

She doesn’t buy into Hannah’s romantic ideas about flowers and their hidden meanings, but when it comes to arranging the perfect bouquet, CJ discovers a knack she never knew she had. A skill she might even be proud of.

Then her mom decides to sell the shop—to the family who swindled CJ’s grandparents when thousands of Japanese Americans were sent to internment camps during WWII. Soon a rift threatens to splinter CJ’s family, friends, and their entire Northern California community; and for the first time, CJ has found something she wants to fight for.
