My favourite blog posts of July 2018!

Hi friends! My ‘favourites’ post last month went down really well so I’m definitely going to continue spreading the love πŸ™‚ Here are some posts I loved this month!



Rachel wrote a great review of Sadie by Courtney Summers. I haven’t seen this book around much but it sounds like a dark and intriguing read – added to the wishlist!

Steph reviewed The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis, which has been on my radar for a while. Another YA on the darker side, I’ve heard great things about this one and would love to try it!

Briana wrote a super cute review of a sweet-sounding middle-grade, Annie’s Life in Lists by Kristin Mahoney. It’s all in lists!

Ali reviewed Goodnight Mister Tom, a classic I’ve never read but definitely want to try now!

Sim wrote a wonderful in-depth review of Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. I loved this book last year and it makes me so happy to see someone else embarking on their own Bardugo journey!

Melanie got her hands on an ARC of Muse of Nightmares (lucky duck!) and her review has made me even more excited for this highly anticipated sequel. I am dying over here waiting for this book! Melanie is a reviewer whose opinion I rate highly so it fills me with joy to know that she loved this sequel – that means it’s likely to meet my high expectations!

Mandy wrote a great review of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (wow, that’s a long title!) I added this one to my wishlist yeeears ago but still haven’t got round to it – maybe this lovely review will make it more of a priority for me!

Tara reviewed Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen and got me even more hyped for this sequel!


Discussion posts

Samantha wrote a post about why unhauling books can be a good thing. I definitely need to keep this one bookmarked as I always struggle to get rid of books!

Kelly always writes great discussion posts but I particularly enjoyed this one about family values and whether they are absent in YA books.

Marie raised the question of new releases and whether we place too much importance on them. I found this post very relevant; since I began blogging, I get seduced much more regularly by new releases!

Justine shared some things she has learned from months of blogging. I always enjoy reading about other bloggers’ experiences and Justine gives some great advice in this post.

Heather listed some plot concepts she wants to see more of and I am totally with her on these!


Other fun posts

Krysta created a list of books set in every state in the USA! This was a great post for Independence Day and has me wanting to challenge myself to read a book for each state! Who’s interested? πŸ˜‰

Zuky made a list of films she wishes were books – I thought this was such a cool idea for a post and I loved Zuky’s choices. It’s definitely got me thinking about some films that I’d like to see in book form.

Nyx made a post for the ‘Book Aesthetics’ tag and it was gorgeous! I’m definitely going to be trying this one myself!

Kristin did the ‘Literary Dinner Party’ tag and I loved her choices! This is another tag I really want to do soon.

LaRonda recommended some lesser-known fairytale retellings she enjoyed. Fairytale retellings are some of my favourite books to read so I’m always on the lookout for more! These five are now all on my wishlist.

Swetlana compiled a great post about her bookstagram process. As a bookstagrammer myself, I’m always on the lookout for ways to improve and I think this post would be a great guide for beginners wanting to break into the book photography scene.

Cait wrote a list of books that have misleading titles and (as her posts always are) it was a delight to read.

Tina did an amazing job in the 24in48 Readathon, completing a full 24 hours reading! I am a frequent participant in the readathon but have never managed to hit a full 24 hours so I am in awe of Tina’s achievement!

Callum shared some photographs of his time in Copenhagen and added a new destination to my travel wishlist!


Thank you to everyone mentioned in this post for creating such great content! (If you weren’t featured, please don’t feel bad – I could have made a post twice as long but I’m only human!) I hope you all discover some new favourites from this and make some new friends in the blogging community! x
