50/50 Friday: What Happened in July

50/50 Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Carrie from The Butterfly Reader and Laura from Blue Eye Books.

Their Prompt: “Now what is 50/50 Friday?

Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you’ve read/worst sequel you’ve read. So that’s what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday (something bookish of course!). If you have ideas for this meme don’t be scared to let us know!”
This Week’s Question: Favorite/Least Favorite Read in July
My Answer: I finished 8 books in July-
  1. Shadows of Glass by Kassy Tayler
  2. Remnants of Tomorrow by Kassy Tayler
  3. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
  4. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
  5. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
  6. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
  7. Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman
  8. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

Clearly it was the month of series as I only read one standalone book this month. I’ve never been great at picking best reads, but this month, I have to go with:


The story is told from such a unique perspective and is just such a different read. For my least favorite read of the month:

shadowsofglassIt’s not that I hated it, but the main character spends an inordinate and annoying amount of time harping over her guilt – and practically using the same words to do so chapter after chapter.

So how about you guys? What were your favorite and leas favorite reads from July?

  1. I’m so excited to see the Leigh Bardugo series, I loved those! I think my favorite of July was Bad Blood by John Carreyrou, and my least favorite was The Power by Naomi Alderman… but that’s just because I really liked most of what I read. The Power felt like a huge concept that just didn’t quite get executed fully in a way I found satisfying, but it was still interesting.
