I’ve read a lot of books this month but still feel like I’m in a slump and have been struggling everyday to decide what to read next. I’ve also felt quite disappointed because many books that I wanted to read for a long time, turned out to be not so great. But, let me share my most memorable reads of July.
Fresh Ink was definitely a wonderful diverse anthology and I really want everyone to read it. I promise it will leave you with many thoughts and also help you discover many awesome authors. You can find my review here.
I had so much fun reading the Mixed Messages series by Lily Morton. Its emotional, entertaining and the humor is so on point, you won’t stop laughing. Great characters and writing.

Blog Posts I Enjoyed Reading in July
Though everyone loves reading discussion posts, I love writing and reading book reviews and in this post, Rhea @ Bookchanted writes about why she thinks book reviews are important.
Click here to read Laura @ Books and Geekiness talk about how we adults should not feel guilty about reading and loving YA books. I love her point that we should read what we love and no one has the right to stop us.
In this wonderfully thought provoking post, Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams talks about how women are taught to be silent, modest and likeable but men are taught to be confident and not shamed for showcasing it. Lily also talks about the need for more confident female characters in books, so that our attitudes towards confident women change from the negative.
I love rereading books a lot, so it was so much fun reading this post by Kristina @ Books and Dachshunds describing her love for rereading.
It’s always a thrill when I read a book and fall completely in love with it, but it’s also difficult to write reviews for such books, because I never feel that I have satisfactorily described my love for it. It was wonderful to read Emma @ The Terror of Knowing express similar thoughts in this post of hers.
There was a lot of discussion last week on Twitter about book piracy but the concerns of International readers are usually lost in the uproar. Read this post by Shealea @ That Bookshelf Bitch describing her experiences as an International blogger and also list some wonderful resources for reading discounted or free books legally.
