I know it has been quite awhile since I’ve posted and I have my reasons why, which I will talk about down below. But I am glad to say I am back at it! I started myself out easy and I’m working my way back up to a normal schedule. Anyways, let’s get into what books I read in July! 

Spin the Dawn Book CoverSpin the Dawn- Elizabeth Lim ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The first book I read in July was Spin the Dawn. I’ve really been into Asian inspired and Asian written fantasy and Spin the Dawn was perfect for that. While I had some (minor) issues with this book overall I thoroughly enjoyed it and I am super excited to read the next instalment. You can read my full review here (which is going to be posted soon!)

Truthwitch Book CoverTruthwitch- Susan Dennard ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was a re-read to prepare to read Bloodwitch next month. It has been so long since I read Windwitch I felt like I wouldn’t fully appreciate the small details if I didnt refresh my knowledge of the Witchlands world. It was so good to jump back and re-read where everything started and the book that made me fall in love with this series. I was just as enchanted re-reading as I was the first time. My full review will be posted in the next couple of weeks but when it is I will link it here.

Windwitch Book CoverWindwitch- Susan Dennard ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Between Truthwitch and Windwitch I prefer the former to be honest. But it was such a joy to re-read about my faves Baeduan and Iseult. Those two characters both when together and separate are why I love this series so much. In my opinion those parts of Windwitch with them are the best and I don’t care too much about the rest. But now that I am fully caught up I am super ready to dive into Sightwitch and Bloodwitch in August! You can read my full review of Windwitch (which will be up in a couple of weeks) here!

 know I only got through three books this month but I’ve been in the largest reading slump of my life (Spin the Dawn was the first book I finished this year!) I also had no inspiration for my blog, YouTube channel, Instagram or anything really so a small break turned into an unintended hiatus. But now I am back and ready to get back into it all. 

What books did you read in July? How do you deal with burnout and reading slumps? I’d love to hear how you cope in the comments down below.

    Excellent reading month. I’m super excited for Spin the Dawn.

    1. Christine

      Spin the Dawn was wonderful! You have to let me know what you think of it after you read it!

  3. It’s good not to push yourself and take a break occasionally. I get so overwhelmed sometimes with the amount of books on my TBR that I don’t feel like reading anything.

    1. Christine

      I definitely get overwhelmed too. But I think I have finally realized that I need better time management, a workable schedule and that I just need to go at my own pace.

  4. Caffeinated Fae

    I desperately need to read something of Susan Dennard! I am loving the choose your own adventure thing she is doing over on Twitter!

    Sometimes you just need to take a break. Truth witch is on my TBR. I can’t wait to read it!

My name is Christine and I have a slight book addiction problem. I spend most of my spare time reading and when I’m not reading I’m doing reviews. I love all things concerning books and would love to share my experiences with you!
