July TBR List ~ Final Picks


It's been a long time since I picked books to read that are just for me. Usually, I pick "homeschooling" type book, things for history, science, etc. Not this time. In my list below I have genres I never thought I'd be reading like fantasy, magic, and sorcery, oh my!

I let my book boxes pick my list. I have a bit of a subscription addiction here. Yeah, I need to scale back. 

So I may be a little too ambitious with my TBR List. BUT I don't want my books piling up. I really shouldn't be buying more books. My plan is to read the books and get rid of them. Although it will be hard with some because they look so beautiful. Like this one from OwlCrate.

Sorcery of Thorns, now this is a new genre for me ~classic fantasy. OwlCrate is a Young Adult (YA) monthly book box. Each month a new release book (mostly fantasy) with some bookish goodies. OwlCrate is one of the most popular Young Adult subscription boxes out there. When they had their theme Libraries of Wonder, well, I had to order! 

Next month theme will have a gorgeous mug too so I'm excited about that. Maybe I should start sharing some of the book boxes on my blog. You can see my unboxing on YouTube.

This cover is beautiful in a  mysterious sort of way. I got this book from my Beacon Book Box subscription! Another YA subscription box. Like OwlCrate this box has a new release book and some bookish goodies. This founder of this company just turned 16!

The Beholder sounds really good. I really need to practice my summarizing skills. Here is a "clip" from Amazon,

Selah has waited her whole life for a happily ever after. As the only daughter of the leader of Potomac, she knows her duty is to find the perfect match.
But after an excruciatingly public rejection, Selah’s stepmother suggests an unthinkable solution: Selah must set sail across the Atlantic to visit a series of potential suitors—and if she doesn’t come home engaged, she shouldn’t come home at all.
This one involves an evil stepmother.

Rebekah Women of Genesis is a book from the July Delilah Box, now this is more of what you all are probably used to seeing me read, hehe.


The Delilah Box is also a monthly subscription but it doesn't actually come in a box anymore. Taylor the owner now sends her books and bookish items in a reusable homemade bag. You can see one of my unboxings on Youtube as well (the June box).

Imagine Me Gone is a more Lindaish book as well,
When Margaret's fiancΓ©, John, is hospitalized for depression in 1960s London, she faces a choice: carry on with their plans despite what she now knows of his condition, or back away from the suffering it may bring her. She decides to marry him. Imagine Me Gone is the unforgettable story of what unfolds from this act of love and faith. At the heart of it is their eldest son, Michael, a brilliant, anxious music fanatic who makes sense of the world through parody. Over the span of decades, his younger siblings -- the savvy and responsible Celia and the ambitious and tightly controlled Alec -- struggle along with their mother to care for Michael's increasingly troubled and precarious existence.
EDITED 7/7: I cannot recommend this book, not only was it boring but there are "scenes" of intimate relations between couples. I don't need to know what these people did in bed. 


Imagine Me Gone came with a dot-to-dot and a coloring book! This book box is Coloring and a Classic ~although Color Me Gone doesn't look like a classic to me. It is a four-star and did win lots of awards and finalist list. I can't wait to read it!

My last two books are from My Coffee and a Book Club. Yup, coffee, and books my happy place! With this subscription, I got two hardback books, two e-books, and a 12oz bag of coffee!


Both the Dark at the Crossing and Days Without End look pretty good. I can't wait to dive into reading these books. 

The two E-books:

All the books have great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, so I'm looking forward to some good reads this month. I don't think I'll get to the two e-books just yet, although I'm almost done reading An Orphan in the Snow, which is also set in the same orphan's home as The Orphan's Wish but a few years before. 

Whew! That's a lot of books, at least for me. Will I get through them all, not sure but I'm going to try!

What books are you reading right now or plan to read for the month of July?

  1. I hope you enjoy your reading! I'm still prepping for school and truly have been using any free time to rest my eyes :)

    1. I hope your eyes are doing better. I finished Imagine Me Gone and it was not good. I need to edit this post. It had detailed relations. Not my kind of book.
