July 2020 Wrap-Up

Hiya friends! This post is a wrap-up for the books I read in July 2020. This is the first time I am doing a wrap-up post. 🙂 I read 5 books this month, which is a personal high for me. Without further ado, let’s dive into the recap.

Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2020

DEAD BUT DREAMING BY BLAKE DEAN POSEY

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This charts a gifted but immature magician’s descent into madness and lure of black magic. With a sinister tale revolving around Sumerian magic lore and bolstered by three-dimensional characters, this was a great read for me.

BIRD IN A SNARE BY N.L. HOLMES

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A fourteenth-century Egyptian diplomat’s investigation of a murder further complicated by the new king’s religious reforms. This was a beautifully written historical whodunit.  The book not only provided me the satisfaction of reading a mystery tale, but also a tale full of political intrigue and courtroom drama.

The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

A swashbuckling tale involving pirates, ships, adventures on stormy seas, facing dangerous beasts in the merciless desert and much more. This book spelled adventure from the word go.

Kanzashi by Christopher Kincaid

Rating: 3 out of 5.

It is an absorbing read about a maiko’s struggle to find her place in the world. This is yet another historical mystery set in early twentieth-century Japan.

The Hollow Gods by A. J. Vrana

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Hollow Gods blends fables and nightmares to concoct a dark tale. It is undoubtedly a unique novel; unlike any, I have read to date. If you like your fantasy novels infused with rich folklore and a mystery element, you will like this book.

I started this blog to discuss books that I read and movies that I watch. But the blog may not be purely restricted to that!

    1. Thank you, Christopher, for your appreciation. I was pretty nervous as this was my first wrap-up post. I have seen such posts of my fellow book bloggers. They are so beautiful. So, instead of losing my mind over how to write my wrap-up post, I decided to keep it simple. Glad to know you enjoyed reading it.

  1. I’ve never done a wrap-up post, but yours looks great! So beautiful and well-organised and it’s easy to re-read the reviews. 5 books that’s a lot and there’s great diversity in the books. What are you reading at the moment? Is August going to be as exciting as July?

    1. Thank you, Tony, for your kind words. I get easily bored on reading back to back books of same genre, so, I purposely look for diverse books. 🙂 I am currently reading a paranormal thriller Sins of Father by JG Faherty.
      I haven’t yet decided on the books for August. I’m a moody person. Hopefully, August will be as exciting as July. Thanks once more for reading and commenting. 🙂
