July in Review

For the month of July I read 17 books. This month was, again, a lot of catching up on series that I am in the middle of. I did start a couple new series mainly Simon Holt's "The Devouring" and Michelle Rowen's "Demon Princess: Reign or Shine".

There were three books that really stood out as being awesome this month. The first was "Succubus Heat" by Richelle Mead, 4th book in the Georgina Kincaid series. The second book was "Gargoyle" by Andrew Davidson. The third book was "Demon Princess: Reign or Shine" by Michelle Rowan.

The worst book of the month was "Blood Noir" by Laurell Hamilton; at book #16 of the series, I thought it was one of the worst in the series.

There were a number of just okay books and a number of books I liked. For the full list see below.

1. Mona Lisa Darkening by Sunny (4 stars)
2. Blood Noir (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter, Book 16) by Laurell Hamilton (2 stars)
3. Fragile Eternity (Fragile Eternity, Book 3) by Melissa Marr (3 stars)

16. Stargazer (Evernight, Book 2) by Claudia Grey (3 stars)
17. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith (4 stars)

Next month will start off with a few more series books. Then I am hoping to read a bunch of stand alones and possibly start a couple new series. I would really like to start reading the Fabelhaven series by Branden Mull and the Alien Huntress series by Gena Showalter.
