July Wrap up and August TBR

First of all I cannot believe that it is August. August?!? The year is almost over.
I know I'm not alone in this but the only thing that I read from my July TBR was one thing cause I got a bit side tracked. Also I had some contemporary books on that list but I've always been a mood reader and I guess July was not the month for contemporary. I do want to read them but I will later. They are a bit out of my comfort zone but I'm trying to get out of that as well. I just call them "not right now" books



I loved reading this. It was much better than the first one. I got all the feels and...omgosh I need the next one.
My Review








Ok. When I first read this book when it came out I liked it. Now I finished it and I am just so indifferent about it. It wasn't bad but the characters didn't really connect with me
My Review








O MY GOSH. There is hardly ever a time I dislike a character very much. Hate is a strong word but America was really pushing me there with this one. She is the most annoying character I have ever read. *sorry not sorry*.I literally wanted to throw the book across the room
My Review










Surprisingly out of all the trilogy as a whole, this one was better. I still do not like America whatsoever. Honestly, I don't know why I kept reading this series but the writer is a good writer and I did have to know how everything comes together at the end. Also, I wanted to finish the series because this was one that I wanted to finish.
My Review





August TBR
So, I didn't read most of the books from my July TBR but I am going to will myself to read the books that I promise myself to read. These are the ones that I will definitely read.

 I want to get a little bit out of my comfort zone and read some of the books that I mentioned in my discussion post about intimidating books. One of the genre was high fantasy. I have heard that Brandon Sanderson is a really great author and he is an automatic author buy. The reviews are great and I really can't wait to read it.








I also heard some great things about this one. There is something dark and inviting that I like about this book. I can't wait to get into it and see how this story plays out.









This was in my tbr pile for July but unfortunately life got kinda busy sooo I'm going to throw this one on here. I really want to read this. I heard that this was an absolutely good book. Also, I heard if you haven't read anything buy V.E. Schwab or Victoria Schwab then Vicious is a good book to start out with. We will see.







I didn't get a chance to read this one for the month of July. I'm still hanging in there with this one. I will read this book. I might not get through the whole series but I am going to read the first one.











So, that is all for my August TBR. I kept it short because I want to give myself time to read all the books. Once I finish then the other backup books that I have I can get to those as well. I might have a better month of reading some good books with likable characters as well.

Let me know what books you are planning to read for the month of August and what you read and your thoughts on the books for the July.

Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.








This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.
