It’s this time of the month again! Presenting to you – my July Book Haul and Wrap Up! I won’t be listing down my August TBR since my TBR pile has become unmanageable, and I’ll probably pick up books that I feel like reading. In the past week, I’ve been in a huge historical fiction vibe, ever since I finished The Bronze Horseman. So you guys might notice the noticeable number of historical fiction novels in my July Haul.
July Wrap Up
I read a total of 8 books this month, and I’m really happy to say that I’ve finished the entire Ruthless People series, since that was my goal for the month! I haven’t posted my reviews yet for the last 3 books, so I might do a mini-review post for each one of them. Aside from being in a huge Mafia craze, I’ve also been diving more again into historical fiction.
- Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves – 2/5 ★
- The Ruthless People Series by J.J. McAvoy
- The Untouchables (Book 2) – 5/5 ★

July Book Haul
I got a whopping 11 books this month! It’s 2 books more than my June book haul! I promise to myself that I’ll put myself on a book buying ban this August, because I need to save up for the upcoming book fair this September (*waves to Filipinos* MIBF!!) My massive book haul was because of the big anniversary sale one bookstore had last month, which got me 6 books in one visit, my first order from Book Depository came, and secondhand bookshops on Instagram that have really great reading choices and an even greater price!
