Stacking the Shelves: July

Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality, Stacking the Shelves is a regular feature where I share everything I’ve added to my TBR list in the past month. Each month I look at the books I’ve discovered and tell you what they’re about, where I found them, why I want to read them, what their shelf status is, how high of a priority they are, and finally what my rating prediction is.

Book Review: The Majesties by Tiffany Tsao

Gwendolyn and Estella have always been close, each other’s source of comfort in an industriously wealthy Chinese-Indonesian family with more secrets than they can keep track of. But when Estella poisons their entire family, sole survivor Gwendolyn is left to trawl through her fractured memories to try and uncover their past and make sense of a sister she thought she knew.

July’s Monthly Round-Up

I started last month’s round-up post with ‘I’m over my reading slump!’ and I’m gonna go ahead and retract that. I’m not really reading right now, and I guess I’m sort of on a semi-unofficial-hiatus from blogging too. I’m just taking some time to do some other things. I wanted to at least do my monthly round-up post though, since I do actually have some things to share. For now, I’m just going to be posting when I have something to post about, rather than trying to stick to any kind of schedule. Here’s what I read in July (though very firmly in the first half, I don’t think I’ve picked up a book since 21 July…)

K-Pop Readathon: Round-Up

I can’t believe it’s only been a month since I posted my TBR for this readathon. I’ve been on a journey, guys. Last month I was firmly on the BTS bandwagon and open to listening to other groups. Now I have three different K-Pop playlists on Spotify with over 20 hours of music across them. I fell HARD into a K-Pop hole and honestly, it’s the only thing keeping me sane during this pandemic.

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 2020

It’s that time of year again! I always start to see the Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag floating around early June, which always seems a little premature to me – there’s a whole month of the first half of the year left?! What if you read a masterpiece mid-June?! But we’re firmly in the second half of the year now so I’m ready to add mine to the pile.

Book Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

When Circe is born to a the god Helios, there is something different about her; she lacks the inescapably allure of her nymph siblings and cousins, and is shunned by most of her family. Discovering that her power lies in the herbs and flowers of her homeland, she seeks solace in her witchcraft. But the gods are wary of her new skills, and when she transforms a fellow nymph into a seething monster, Zeus banishes Circe to a life of solitude on an island far from anyone else. Here Circe develops her powers and comes into contact with a host of characters, gods and mortals a like.

June’s Monthly Round-Up

I finally feel like I’m coming out of my post-Magical Readathon slump, even though I didn’t really pick up a book until about 20 June. I do feel like I’m getting back into my groove now though (just in time for the August Magical Readathon to come around and kick my ass all over again) so hopefully I’ll have more than a couple of books on my July round-up next month. Here’s what I managed to finish in June.
