What I read in July:
Darkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicle #3) by Jay Kristoff – 4 STARS
It took me a while to get into Darkdawn, I found it a bit slow in the beginning but I ended up really enjoying it and I liked how Mia’s story concluded, I thought there were some interesting twists in this book.
Pet by Akwaeke Emezi – 4 STARS
Pet was such a unique story and I love how impactful it was for such a short book. The world in it, a world with no ‘monsters’, really had me thinking on some of the moral dilemmas it bought up.
Loveless by Alice Oseman – 4 STARS
I really liked this book and I don’t think I’ve read a book that focuses on and talks about asexuality before. I think this is an important book and I really enjoyed reading it.
The Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum – 5 STARS
The main character in this book, Ryann Bird is one of my all time favourite characters, I loved reading about her. I also loved the plot of The Weight of the Stars and I found the storyline really emotional.
I Hear the Sunspot by Yuki Fumino – 4 STARS
I enjoyed this manga and I liked reading about the two main characters in this book as the get closer to each other and learn more from each other. I’m excited for the next volume.

What I Watched in July:
The Umbrella Academy – I rewatched season one to prepare for the second season, I loved both the rewatch and season two. I’m so invested in the characters of this series and I love the storylines they have, it’s definitely one of my favourite shows.
Siren (series 1) – I’ve always been intrigued by mermaid/siren stories and this tv series is about that. I enjoyed watching season one and I liked the atmosphere and mystery of it.
The Heirs – This is a kdrama that’s been out for a while and has a lot of popularity. I don’t know why but I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did but I ended up loving it. It was filled with everything that makes kdramas so addictive to watch and I now know why it’s so popular.
What I Played and Listened to in July:
I’ve been playing a lot of Animal Crossing and that’s been great. I also played a game called ‘What Remain of Edith Finch’ and I loved it. The story and gameplay were all very interesting and for such a short game it really packs an emotional punch.
Like everyone else I’ve been listening to Taylor Swift’s Folklore on repeat for the last few days and I really love it. Some of my favourites on the album are: Exile, Seven, My Tears Ricochet, Mirrorball and Illicit Affairs but obviously I love the rest too.
