I’ve always wanted to do a TBR and wrap-up, but between summer and my strange method for picking what to read next, the format isn’t a good fit for me personally. Enter this new series I’m trying out where I’ll be saying the best book I read that month. I’m a fairly hard reviewer to impress, so hopefully I will rate a book high enough each month to continue making these. Plus, it’s nice to be positive on For the Lover of Books once and a while.
I’m currently writing this on July 24th as I go on holiday in South Africa for three weeks as of July 31st (the day this post will be scheduled for). As a result, I will be making any books read this week eligible for my favourite book of the month for August. I don’t like doing it like this, but I have no idea if my relatives even have internet, let alone if I will have access to it.
This is probably the easiest favourite book of the month post I have had to write. April was difficult because I had so many 5 star reads, and I almost couldn’t do one for May and June. I only have one 5 star read for the month of July, and it 100% deserves the title of my favourite book for July.
Without further ado, I present my favourite book for the month of July, Now I Rise by Kiersten White. You can read my review here, but I recommend you read the first book in the trilogy, And I Darken, before reading this one (I’m not linking my review of And I Darken because I’m rather embarrassed of it, but it can still be found on For the Lover of Books if you really want to read it)
What was the best book you read in the month of July?
