At the beginning of this month I made a pretty big TBR hopeful list for myself that I really wanted to tackle. Did I complete my hopefuls or did I fall short? Lets find out!
The Honest Truth
These three books were my main hopefuls for this month! I got “The Maidens” and “One Last Stop” in my June Book of the Month box and was dying to read them! “Devil’s Knot” came in a true crime premium book box from One Night Stand With a Book and I have been dying to read it since!
I am going to be honest with you, I only read one of these hopefuls and that was “One Last Stop” by Casey McQuiston. I know I will get around to the other two books hopefully soon! I have read so many great reviews about “The Maidens” that I need to hop on that train soon!
What Did I Really Read
Did you really think I only finished one book this last month? I am a slow reader but come on, I’m not that slow!
I read a total of four books this month, one of which was a graphic novel. Have you read any of these books? Would you count a graphic novel towards your reading goals?
Five Star Ratings
“One Last Stop” by Casey McQuiston
I gave this book a five star rating because it truly deserved it!
The characters in this LGBTQ book were written so well and I could really find someway to relate to each and everyone of them. From true crime to psychics you can find some reason to love these characters.
I hope everyone will give this book a try.

“Black Lantern” by Chris Bodily
This was my first ever graphic novel, I stumbled across this gem at an art festival in Utah! Turns out Chris is also from Utah and created this gorgeous piece of work!
The cat Julius is my absolute favorite! He is so cute and hilarious! I haven’t wrote an official review yet but you should give it a look!
Four Star Reads
“Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens
I gave this a four star read because it didn’t fully live up to the hype but was still really good! It started off a little slow but the ending was so good!
This is a very talked about book and honestly I would be so surprised if you haven’t read this one yet, but if you haven’t here is your sign!

Three Star Reads
“A Type of Hunger” by Pamela D. Beverly
I found this book just scrolling through blogs and read a comment about an author wishing for some more reviews, and so that’s what I did.
This book received three stars because it had many grammar errors that were very distracting and the story felt very rushed towards the end.
This was a self published book so the grammar errors make sense and are expected. Please support Indy Authors!

Last month went a lot better than I originally expected. I have lately only been reading two or three books each month so to get four books finished I am pretty happy with that! I am hoping I can keep this momentum up for August and read at least four books!
QOTD: How many books did you finish this month? Did you read all the books on you list or did you mood read?
