So I've been doing these monthly TBR strategy posts since April. I find they're really helpful for organising my thoughts and tackling small-term reading goals. Here's my strategy for July.
The sun is shining, everyone is sneezing, and June is coming to a close. It has been a very gross and sweaty month here in the UK, but has at least resulted in a lot of indoor reading time for me. Let's take a look, shall we?
I took a chance on Moira Fowley-Doyle's Spellbook of the Lost and Found after falling in love with its gorgeous cover on Twitter. I haven't read The Accident Season, her debut novel, so I didn't really know what to expect in terms of style.
I'm a little late today, that's what Minecraft and podcast all day will do to you. Here's a wee round-up of this week in Bookstagram. We made a new best friend. Geri the Ginger Cat lives on a canal boat nearby and is, of course, a great reader. Book post! I'm so excited to be … Continue reading Instagram Sundays

Books I read Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle Lost Boy by Christina Henry Raven Stratagem (DNF) by Yoon Ha Lee This was a great week for reading because both books I finished were wonderful.

Conjoined twins! Cults! Dystopian San Francisco! Murder! I took one look and realised that this would be a unique read and just ticks so many boxes for me. I was really impressed by this book -- I ended up really enjoying it and am officially a Laura Lam fan.
Happy Sunday! It's absolutely sweltering in England today (and I'm from Southern California), so we are all indoors! I really love the simple cover of Gilded Cage complimented by the brick and the flowers here. I've heard good things about this one, and I'm looking forward to getting going! A sneaky shot of the mini … Continue reading Instagram Sundays
I read The Wrath and the Dawn for the first time in anticipation of Flame in the Mist's release, but I really wish I hadn't -- I couldn't help but compare the two. I did enjoy this book -- it has a well-constructed world filled with interesting men and women and a hint of magic. But where The Wrath and the Dawn drew me in instantly, Flame in the Mist was a little more slow to start.
I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman and snapped up a copy of this book in hardback within a month of publication. I'm a huge fan of mythology, but know so little about Norse mythology. This is a great introduction to the world of Thor, Loki, Odin, and the whole host of gods and goddesses that inhabit Asgard that have becoming more and more mainstream.
It's time for Instagram Sundays -- a roundup of this week's bookstagam posts. This week's post is brought to you by my birthday and a weekend in London. This is an advance copy I was sent for review. I'm really enjoying it (and its simple but effective cover)! It's an adventure filled with wrongful imprisonment, … Continue reading Instagram Sundays
