July To Read

July To Read

I feel like I’m being pretty optimistic trying to read four books this month given that last month I was pretty busy with work stuff and barely read, in fact I didn’t even manage to  finish We Are Blood and Thunder. But it’s a new month and a fresh start so here goes.

The Burning Chambers by Kate Mosse

A thrilling adventure, and a heart-breaking love story, The Burning Chambers is a historical novel of excitement, conspiracy and danger like no other

This is one of the library books I picked up the other month that I mentioned in my June To Read post, we also sell this at work which is where it first caught my eye. I’ve been quite into historical novels lately so I think this is why I’ve picked it up. I haven’t started this book yet and it’s quite a hefty one at 608 pages so I better start on this bad boy soon.

Once and Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy

Coming to terms with your identity is always difficult. But for Ari, the 42nd reincarnation of King Arthur, it just got a whole lot more complicated. Gender-bending royalty, caustic wit and a galaxy-wide fight for peace and equality all collide in this epic adventure.
With an awkward adolescent Merlin and a rusty spaceship, this is the Arthurian legend as you have never before seen it.
I think I picked this up for a couple of quid on kindle, but this is a ya retelling of King Arthur, only this time Arthur is a teenage girl named Ari and it’s set in the future! Now I gotta admit I don’t really read sci fi novels so this is a first for me but I watched two King Arthur films before I bought this book so I guess I was on a King Arthur kick haha.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardgo

Over the last couple of months I completely binge read the Shadow of Bone trilogy and LOVED IT. I have completely and utterly fallen in love with the Grishaverse so can’t wait to discover more in the Six of Crows duology. I stupidly bought King of Scars which I thought I’d be ok to read without having read Six of Crows but nope, when the book arrived and I checked the blurb out and hello new character I’ve never met before, how ya doing? So maybe next month I’ll get round to reading King of Scars.

We are Blood and Thunder by Kesia Lupo 

I’m still reading this book, oops! I don’t know why as the premise of the book is so interesting, but I’m struggling a bit, but I’m determined to give it a proper shot!
