July Wrap-Up

Here are all the books I managed to read in July!

all the little lights

1. All the Little Lights by Jamie McGuire

Rating: 4/5 stars

You can read my full review here. I really enjoyed this book. It wrapped up nicely and the writing was just beautiful. I fell in love with the story and the characters and I couldn’t stop myself from wanting to know what happened next. Overall I think it was very well done. 🙂

the subtle art of not giving a fuck

2. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

Rating: 3/5 stars

I thought this book was pretty good, but I didn’t think it was anything amazing. It had some good tips, but most of it was just common sense. One thing I did really love was the sense of humor. I love books with humor and this author definitely has that. Overall it wasn’t a bad book. 🙂

we are okay

3. We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

Rating: 2/5 stars

I didn’t enjoy this book which makes me really sad because I had such high hopes for this book. I’ve heard s many amazing things, but I just didn’t find myself liking this book. I thought it was boring and the main character just annoyed me. However, I was interested enough to finish it..so..yeah that’s my mini review haha.

when god says go

4. When God Says Go by Elizabeth Laing Thompson

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

You can read my full review for this book here. I really enjoyed this book and I thought it had a lot of good stuff in it. I also really loved the author’s writing and how she made everything flow and work together. I just didn’t connect with it as much as I was hoping to, but that’s okay. 🙂

the woman in cabin 10

5. The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Rating: 3/5 stars

This book was interesting and managed to keep my interest throughout. I really liked the story and how things unfolded. It had a good twist that I wasn’t expecting. I had moments that I didn’t like Lo because she just annoyed me…and I was hoping some other things would have been answered, but oh well. Overall it was a pretty good book.


6. Unfiltered by Lily Collins

Rating: 3/5 stars

I enjoyed this book and hearing more about Lily’s life. She was very honest and raw about some of the things that happened to her and I found it to be a nice break from some of the fluffy books people can write. She did a good job at being truthful and showing that things aren’t perfect and talking about how to accept oneself. I just wish she went a little deeper into some things.

the boy in striped pajamas

7. The Boy In The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

Rating: 3/5 stars

I’ve heard so many good things about this book but wasn’t very pleased. I thought it was a good book and that it was interesting, but I fell like the writing wasn’t amazing and the story could have been written better. It’s a really short book and I think to get the full effect that it could have been longer. I didn’t hate it though. I was disappointed with how it ended I felt like it was too abrupt, but it wasn’t a horribly written ending.

I’m pretty happy with my reading for July. I know most of the books I read were audiobooks, but that’s still pretty good. 🙂 How was your reading for July? ❤

  1. Oh it seems like you had a lovely reading month! I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but I’ve heard great things about Lily Collins’ books, I think I might have to give it a try sometime 😀
    I hope you’ll have a fantastic month! ❤
