I'm back with My Favorite Non-Review Books!
I'm a little late as August is halfway over, but here are my July picks.
As a blogger sometimes writing reviews can feel like a chore so it seems I rarely write reviews for non-review books anymore. I feel bad about that, because it's not that I didn't enjoy them less than the books I review here, just that I don't have the time or energy to write a review for each and every book I read. I thought it would be nice to list my favorite non-review books each month to bring more attention to them.
I only read two non-review books in July! It was a busy month for me having a week of vacation with my grandkids (3 & 6 years old!) left little time for reading. I needed a vacation from that vacation, lol!
July 2021 Favorites:
This first Maggie D'arcy mystery took a bit to get going, but I ended up really enjoying it. A bonus that most of it is set in Ireland, although Rhode Island is appealingly depicted as well. The next book was a total hit for me, and now I can't wait for the third! As a side note, I love the covers in this series!
The romance wasn't my favorite, but any book in the Psy-Changeling series is pretty entertaining. I especially liked the continuing story ARC and discovering more about all the players. I'm trying to catch up with the read-along hosted by Anne @Books of My Heart, but I'm seriously behind now. Didn't help that my library check out of the next book expired before I could get to it so I had to wait until it came through again. Ack! I'm listening to it now.
I tend to get excited about books set outside the US, and even more so when they are set in places I have been. I would adore the Irish setting.ReplyDelete
I love "visiting" places I haven't been. I'd love to go to Ireland and Scotland, someday, hopefully, so I was happy to "visit" it through The Mountains Wild.Delete
I decided to take the plunge and try to Psy Changeling series! My copy of book #1 was delivered a couple days ago and I'm excited to pick it up soon! :)ReplyDelete
Yay Tanya! I hadn't read it before and have really enjoyed it. There's a bunch of us who love to discuss each book as we go.Delete

Hope you enjoy it, Tanya! Slave to Sensation is one of my favorites in the series!Delete
Psy.changeling yay :DReplyDelete
That other does look really good too
The cover of The Mountains Wild is amazing!ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed The Mountains Wild and have the next one on hold at the library. Blaze of Memory wasn't my favorite but it had some good plot additions. Thanks for joining us. I know what you mean - I like to just write a couple sentences on Goodreads about non-review books and just enjoy them.ReplyDelete

I loved the second book even more! I just finished Bonds of Justice and enjoyed it a little more than Blaze of Memory. Now just waiting on my audio copy of Play of Passion.Delete
The Mountains Wild sure looks good.ReplyDelete
Love the series!Delete
I am so happy to see that you enjoyed Blaze of Memory, I absolutely adored that one but not the most impressionable one of the series I agree.ReplyDelete
Thanks, the next one was better. I like all the developments of the continuing story arc as well.Delete
The Mountains wild sounds good.ReplyDelete
I love the Psy Changeling series! Some of the books are far better than others that's for sure but the series overall is one of my favorites <3ReplyDelete
Yep, I totally agree! :)Delete
I love the Nalini Singh series, too, and the other series you read looks like a hit to me. LOL, vacation after the vacation.ReplyDelete
