Welcome to my July Wrap Up. I had a great reading month, finishing 6 books (6 books off my TBR). I also received 3 ARC's this month, and I continued my new goal of reading 1 Shakespeare play, as well as The Voyage Of The Beagle by Charles Darwin.

I have reviews up or coming up for these books so as usual this is just going to be a brief run down on each book I read.

Without further ado, let's get into my July Wrap Up..

All That Impossible Space by Anna Morgan: I really enjoyed this book. The writing was great, the characters were real and the story was compelling. I loved how the book was woven around a real mystery and I loved the way the characters reacted to the mystery and each other. Well worth the read.

The Sharp Edge Of A Snowflake by Sid Sigmarsdottir: I did know what to expect going into this book but I really enjoyed it. It was fast paced, interesting and I was genuinely surprised by the ending. If you are looking for a quick but thoroughly entertaining read, this is the book for you.

The Forgotten Letters Of Esther Durrant by Kayte Nunn: This book was wonderful. I was captivated from start to finish. I loved everything about this book; the story, the characters and especially the writing. This sweeping epic is definitely not to be missed.

Outrages by Naomi Wolf: This book was fantastic. I truly learnt a lot by reading this book. It was fascinating to see how laws were changed and abused and how far we have come in the fight for equality. On of the best books I have read all year.

Never Look Back by A.L. Gaylin: I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was compelling, with many twists and turns. I loved seeing how events unfolded and how so many lives were intertwined. I didn't want this book to end, and I was both sad and completely satisfied when it did.

Trails In The Dust by Joy Dettman: I didn't love this book. I found parts of it really interesting, but it was just really hard to get into. I found it choppy and at times really hard to follow. I loved the idea of this story, unfortunately for me it just didn't work.

Shakespeare: I read 1 Shakespeare play in July. I read the following Shakespeare Play This Month:

Romeo And Juliet

The Voyage Of The Beagle by Charles Darwin: I read the following chapters of The Voyage Of The Beagle this month:

Chapter 3: Maldonado

Chapter 4: Rio Negro to Bahia Blanca

Chapter 5: Bahia Blanca

That's it for my July Wrap Up. I hope you all had a great reading month. Let me know what you guys read this month in the comments section.

Until my August Wrap Up...

Happy Reading...
