A very strange reading month, I’ve definitely been in a kind of slump the last while hence the rereading. Not sure how July will go but I ended the month reading a book that’s been on my TBR for 2 years and it was a beast so maybe I’m over the bump? If not I’ll just keep rereading I guess!

I was feeling super slumpy near the end of the month so went back to what brings me comfort.
Desperate Measures (Wicked Villains #1) 3⭐, Learn My Lesson (Wicked Villains #2) 3.5⭐, A Worthy Opponent (Wicked Villains #3) 3⭐, The Beast (Wicked Villains #4) 4⭐, The Sea Witch (Wicked Villains #5) 2.5⭐, Queen Takes Rose (Wicked Villains #6) 2⭐, Wicked Villains Shorts (Wicked Villains) 3.5 ⭐ by Katee Robert
Not my usual genre but I started book one and they are kind of addictive. I enjoyed the few days of escapism. I was on annual leave the week I read them and they are kind of perfect for that switch off and relax mentality.
Also read these on the week off and kind of hoped they’d offer the same escapism as the Wicked Villains books. These were actually really well written but I didn’t love all the characters and I don’t think it was for me. Siren Beloved was good but no real interest in continuing on.
This was really good but it was also a total bummer and may have been a bit too soon in terms of pandemics! 😀
Again with the rereading, I’d started the reread a while back but hadn’t finished so decided to end my month with Chaos. I didn’t read Free (Chaos #6) because in my mind it’s the worst end to a series ever and there are parts of it that just upset me and that’s not what I’m after when I reread!
This is a really gorgeous book and a very important read. Johnson’s frankness was so inspirational and I think will be such a gift to young Black LGBTQIA+ folxs but I think anyone who feels marginalised due to their race, sexuality or gender will get something out of this book. I personally think though that anyone who reads this will get something out of it.
Loved this but would have loved a little bit more there at the end. Is it possible that 800 pages wasn’t enough? It had everything I want in a book. Multiple POV’s, strong female leads, fabulous characters, melt your heart love story, super strong world building with lots of map consulting (which I love) and most importantly of all DRAGONS!
