Hello, book lovers!
I hope you are all staying well and being kind to yourself! The world that we live in today is so much different than we know it, and it is okay to take life at your own pace. Do what is best for you and take care of yourselves. Self-care and mental health are extremely important, now more than ever!
I read many books in June, but I am behind on writing the reviews. In May I had a reading slump, but June was amazing and I managed to read a lot of books. However, I was not so good with writing reviews, which is something I will be working on in the next week.
Let the July TBR raffle commence.
The TBR Raffle
I am filming my TBRs on my Instagram Stories. Make sure to follow me on Instagram, and check out the “Monthly TBR” highlight at the beginning of each month!
My TBR Raffle game is simple: I have a number of prompts that I put in small papers, into a jar. I draw a prompt, and I fit in a book that matches my prompt. Here is a list of the current prompts I have. Feel free to leave any prompt suggestions in the comments. Once the paper is drawn, I put it back into the jar, so it has an equal chance to get drawn again. I draw a total of 8 prompts, which result in 8 books for the month. If I fail to read a book, it automatically goes into the next month.
My July TBR
There are two books that I haven’t read from last month, and they are being added to this month’s TBR again.
✨ 1. Added from last month’s TBR
✨ 2. Added from last month’s TBR
I have chosen a book that I had on my shelf for the longest. By The Feet of Men by Grant Price is a post-apocalyptic novel and sounds very intriguing.
✨ 3. Series
I have chosen The Breaking (Northern Witch #3) by K.S. Marsden, because it is the latest installment of the series, and I am so curious to see how it will end.
✨ 4. Lowest Rated
The current lowest rated books on my TBR is Eleven Lines to Somewhere by Alyson Rudd. I think this is due to the fact that this is still an ARC and not many people have reviewed it yet. I will be also participating on a Blog Tour, so expect my review on the 26th July.
✨ 5. TBR Jar
I have a handmade TBR Jar and I pulled a random book title. See the video on my Instagram if you are interested. The title is Not My Daughter by Suzy K. Quinn and I couldn’t be happier, as I will be participating in the Blog Tour on 13th July.
✨ 6. Re-read
I chose The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, because it is one of my beloved titles since I was in high school, and I haven’t written a proper book review for it yet. I am wondering if I will still enjoy it the same.
✨ 7. Graphic Novel
When Graphic Novel came up, I realised I don’t own proper Graphic Novels anymore. The closest I have to it are a bundle of children’s books I bought on sale. Therefore, I am choosing The Avengers: Avengers Assemble! by Victoria Taylor.
✨ 8. Purchased
This is a book I have had for a long time, and I never actually read it. 100 Speeches That Roused The World by Colin Salter seems like an amazing introduction to many famous people and their speeches. I love how speeches have the power to change a person’s opinion on something and make people act in a way the speaker wants, and I cannot wait to read it.
I will be part of the Blog Tour on 4th July.

I was so excited that I got the opportunity to participate on this blog tour. My review will be up on 14th July.
Blog tour stop on 27th July. This is a book I am really excited about, especially because it is set in Italy.
And that’s my July TBR.
