I finished twelve books in July, which is the most I’ve ever read in a month, so I’m very happy. There were no graphic novels or poetry collections, which makes it even more of an achievement for me! I loved pretty much every book I read, which makes this a difficult post to write, but nevertheless I have picked three.
Bronze – The Girls – Emma Cline
I was after this book last summer, but only the hardback was available (and I have to be picky when I purchase hardbacks because I have no space left for books!). A year of waiting meant that as soon as I got my hands on the paperback I devoured it. Honestly I loved this so, so much, and I think it’ll be one that stays with me and I will reread many times (I guess it helps that I find cults fascinating to read about, if a tad creepy / scary!)
Silver – Wing Jones – Katherine Webber
This book was just SO good. I absolutely loved this and cannot really put my love of it into words. I met Katherine Webber at YALC over the weekend and she truly was such a lovely, genuine person, which made my love for this book even stronger.
Gold – Loved – P.C. and Kristin Cast
It’s a House of Night book, it was never not going to be first on this list, regardless of any other amazing books I’ve read.

I remember last summer when The Girls was literally EVERYWHERE (although I do have to say that I like the paperback cover art much more than the hardcover art). I still haven’t read it, but I really want to! Also, Wing Jones sounds really good. I’ve been kind of on the fence about that one, but I’m going to have to give it a try!
Yess the paperback is so gorgeous and I think is perfect for the book as well! I find cults so interesting (in a ‘they’re super creepy but I’m kind of intrigued’ way). Wing Jones is definitely one of my favourites of the year and I’m recommending it to everyone who will listen to me!😂
I totally know what you mean about cults! Have you ever seen the show “The Following”? It’s kind of dark but amazing and it is the most interesting thing about a cult that I have ever seen/read. But who knows, maybe I’ll like The Girls more?
Also, I am definitely going to check out Wing Jones now!!
No I’ve never seen it? But it sounds fascinating, I’ll look it up for sure! Yay!🎉
Have you read the rest of the series that comes before loved? Because their just as awesome. The list is 12 books long.
Then it’s loved.
I’m on redeemed so I haven’t started loved.
Yes I have! Many times😂 It’s my favourite series💕
Ahh yay! Have you read the companion ones too? (Neferet’s Curse etc)☺️
Merry meet merry part and merry meet again
No sorry but I wish I could. I’m not even finished reading revealed for the first time I’m half way through
Ah fair enough! They’re good but not as good as the main series☺️
That good the next book otherworldly series is lost.
