July TBR

books to read, books to get, book recommendations, good books, good books for teenagers, sci-fi book recommendations, good fantasy books, fantasy book recommendations,

I haven’t finished a book in a while and I am having trouble deciding what to read so I decided to do a TBR post! There are a couple of writing books that I want to work through and I want to try finishing some smaller books to get back into the reading zone, so without further ado, here are some books that I would like to read in July: 

Fiction



I love dinosaurs and I find the concept of Jurassic Park so fascinating. I haven't seen the more recent films but I did watch the original films a long time ago. I didn't know that the film was actually based on a book so when I found this book, I really wanted to read it. 



After reading One of Us is Lying I have wanted to read more young adult mysteries and this book has quite a unique concept compared to a lot of mysteries out there. 


 

I absolutely loved The Little Mermaid when I was younger so when I saw this book I instantly fell in love. Besides the fact that it is a Little Mermaid retelling, the cover is absolutely beautiful. 

 
This book is a sci-fi mystery that sounds really interesting. A man wakes up one day to find his life is not his life. I can't wait to unravel this one.



 

I found this really cute looking manga that reminds me of Studio Ghibli. It's about a girl that befriends a beast.


Writing Books


If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I am going to work through a few books on writing as I would like to improve my writing and I want to get back to writing poems and short stories, as well as novels. These are the three books that I have yet to read and that I am aiming to start soon:





The Very Short Story Starter

Rapid Fire Book Tag

This is a book tag created by Kate from GirlReading (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-46EzDWdSY). There are a series of book related questions to answer so let’s go:
Q: E-Book or Physical Book?  A: E-book, I know this is a controversial answer but I love my kindle so much! It is light to hold, keeps my page open and tells me an estimate of how much longer I have left in the book which helps motivate me to keep reading.
Q: Paperback or Hardback?  A: I don’t really have a preference!
Q: Online or In-Store Book Shopping?  A: I love shopping in a book store. Being surrounded by books is one of my favourite places. I can look at all of the different books available and choose whichever is available at the time. I often find books that I wasn’t originally planning on buying!
Q: Trilogies or Series? A: I love series because then there are more books to read, as long as the books still continue to be great and there is enough story to last across more books.
Q: Heroes or Villains? A: Heroes but I do l…

Book Buddy Read with Eleanor May

I have wanted to buddy read with someone for a while. Buddy reading is where you and someone else read the same book around the same time and discuss it. However, I didn’t really have anyone who had the same reading tastes as me. I have become good friends with Eleanor from http://www.eleaanormay.com/ and we decided to buddy read!
I am so excited to read a book with her and if any of you want to join in please feel free to. The book we are reading is: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare!
Neither of us have read the Mortal Instruments series before and it is such a popular series. From what I know of this series, it follows teenagers who hunt demons. I was accidentally spoiled with one plot point that occurs later in the story but I am hoping it won’t affect my reading of this book very much. I am really looking forward to discovering this series with a friend.
Have any of you ever done a buddy read?
You can buy City of Bones here: Amazon UK, Audible UK, Amazon US, Audible US, Book Depositor…

Five Things I Learnt From My Internet Detox

I just finished doing 48 hours without internet in aid of Cancer Research UK. Here are the things that I learnt during this time.

1.It is ok to use the internet sometimes 

I often feel bad that I use the internet as much as I do. I think that I should be doing other things instead. However, I have realised that it is ok to use the internet. It is ok to spend time on social media, post things and talk to others, as long as you are not spending too long on there or spending time on social media or accounts that make you feel bad about yourself.

2.Without internet you can relive some good old times
Not having access to internet 24/7 reminded me of when I was younger and we literally did not have access to internet 24/7. We had to spend our time in other ways. The one activity that I spent most of my time doing was playing video games. I used to love spending time playing the same game over and over again and a lot of the games I never even completed because they were too difficult for me bu…
