TBR/Wrap-ups - Courtney

July Wrap-Up

I read 9 books this month, 9. I am on a reading roll. I hope I can keep this up and knock some of my TBR pile down. I knocked out two series and four solo reads. With these 9 books, i now have a favorite series. I fell in love with Victoria Schwab’s writing and I can’t wait to read the rest of her novels. With that let’s get started.

  1. The Memory Agent by Matthew B.J. Delaney


This novel was weird but really good. I loved the mystery and all around thrill I got reading this novel. I do caution you on reading this novel, it does have some triggers in it. If you have trouble with topics like Rape, Murder, or Death in General, I do not recommend this novel.

2. Scythe


This book was disturbing on so many levels, but it was good. I found myself wrapped up in the story wanting more, I couldn’t put the book down. It was so fascinating to see the characters grow and become stronger and more in depth. The writing was amazing and descriptive. I highly recommend this to anyone.

3. Optimists Die First


I’ve never related to a book so much. I suffer from general anxiety and social anxiety. Petula was such a great character to watch grow and push past some of her fears. You see Jacob help her deal with her anxieties while dealing with his own guilt. I recommend this novel to anyone who has anxiety and can possibly relate to this novel.

4. Goodbye Days


This novel, Y’all I love this book. The anxiety rep, I related to this book so much. You see how someone can have so much guilt and how the deal with panic attacks. I recommend this novel to anyone with anxiety. I love this book, so much.

Full Review to come.

5. and 6. This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet

This is my new favorite series and I wish it continued on with 8 more novels. Let me tell you this is my first Victoria Schwab Book and I now want all her books. I was hooked from the start. I do admit there were moments I wanted to put the book down throughout reading the first half, but once I got to the second half I fell in love with the writing and the story.

Review to Come for Our Dark Duet

7.and 8. Frost Blood and Fire Blood

This book, this book is so good. I didn’t know what to expect from Elly Blake’s new series. I was blown away by the book, I went in not knowing much about the novel. The writing was amazing, the story was just intoxicating from the first few pages, I immediately could not put the book down. I finished it in just a couple of hours it was so good.

Full Review to Come.

9. Ready Player One (Mini Review)


This is a book for someone who loves video games. You are in a world that has lost its resources, everyone is starving. You have a video game designer who has left his fortune to anyone who can find his Easter Egg in his game. You follow Wade who is a gunter, he journeys through the game trying to find all the Keys, Gates, and hopefully find the easter egg. The Oasis is a virtual reality where people can escape real life and can be anyone they want to be. As someone who loves video games, I loved this novel and I can not wait to see the movie that releases next year.


I hope you pick these novels up and enjoy them as much as I did.

  2. I hope I get to Ready Player One soon! I’m hoping I like it, but at the same time video games aren’t my thing. I’m also slightly jealous you can read series back to back (like books in the same series) I feel like I need to spread my love around!
