June is coming to an end meaning It’s time to roll my Dice again and generate my July TBR. I would also like to focus on getting my NetGalley percentage back up towards 80%. The past few months have been kinda stressful and I just haven’t been reading as much so I have ended up with a little bit of a back log. I want to try and get on top of that, and aim to get ahead of schedule as well so instead of pulling the rolls from my physical TBR shelves I am directing my rolls towards my NetGalley shelf.
This does mean I had to remove the Orange pie piece for this month. I have no mystery/thrillers on my current NetGalley TBR so I just re-rolled when the dice hit Orange.
What I am Reading
I actually got an early Physical copy of this through Fairyloot, despite its release as being pushed back to July 7th. This is a Persian inspired fantasy and it just sounds so intriguing.
Elizabeth May and Laura Lam
I really enjoyed Laura Lam’s previous work both Adult Sci-fi and YA Fantasy. I haven’t had a chance to read Elizabeth May yet. This sounds like it is going to be a fun feminist space opera. I do love a good space opera!
The Space Between Worlds
This has such a curious premise. I am so intrigued by multi-verse theory and the fact this sounds like it also might have a bit of a murder mystery about it just makes it even more interesting. I am really looking forward to this one. It seems like it is going to be one hell of a ride!
The Angel of Crows
I have actually started this one, however the release date was pushed back and I had a couple of other books in the wings with closer dates so I focused on them. I have to admit this so far has been a little disappointing as it was not what the blurb sold but I will keep going and see how it pans out.
Descendant of the Crane
Another one I am a little behind for. I received an ARC to celebrate the paperback release which was mid June but was rather overwhelmed with work etc to finish this. What i have read so far is complex and beautiful and I am hoping to tick it off the list very quickly.
The Glass Hotel
Emily St john Mandel
This was on my April TBR, but its release was delayed and request to push back reviews came through so I decided to move it off and to read it closer to release (hardback as ebook is available). This is now rapidly approaching so its going on the list
Book Club Books
I am part of a couple of Book Clubs that are reading some really fun reads this month!
Middle grade Marvels
There are Two books for this middle grade based book club! An exciting ARC and our July book of the month. Its going to be good fun reading and discussing both of them. You can find dull details on the clubs Twitter
The Jumbies by Tracey Baptiste
Thomas Wildus and the Book of Sorrows by J.M Bergen
Talks and Thoughts
The group choice for July is Queen of the Conquered by Kacen Callender. This has been on my TBR for a while and i am really interested in getting to it and discussing it with the group.
The Ship of Shadows
I get to be part of The Write reads tour for this awesome sounding Middle grade. I am really excited to get started on it as it just sounds so much fun. I pirate ship crews by ruthless women filled with dark secrets! yes please!!!!
Hopefully I have not bitten off more than I can chew with this TBR. July should be a more relaxed month in terms of workload so maybe I can squeeze in a bit more reading!
