July Wrap-Up

WOWZA! I cannot believe July is already over, honestly 2021 is going by so fast I’m getting whiplash. Is it because things are going back to normal, or is because so many things are happening, or because 2020 honestly dragged so slow? Who knows.

What I do know is that July was a really great reading month, and I think going forward I will dub July as my manga month. Last year I read all 14 volumes of Tokyo Ghoul in July, and this year I read the remaining 15 volumes of Demon Slayer I had left. Which I’m super happy about! I don’t have too many reviews up for books I read, but I do have a post with short reviews of 12 books, if you want to check that out!

Other than reading, I finally touched my embroidery project a little bit, and Penny and I are working hard on getting her trained so she can be off leash in some places, like the baseball field when no one’s around. Here’s to hoping that goes well! What about you my featherlings? Was your July great? Read anything absolutely amazing, or absolutely boring? Let me know, I LOVE hearing about it al!

Anyway, onto the wrap up!

Ibitsu by Haruto Ryo

  • horror manga about an urban legend. 3/5 stars. Great art, but the story was lacking in the middle, and there was a scene or two that I found unnecessary

Demon Slayer Volumes 9-23 by Koyoharu Gotouge

  • I wanted to finish the story, because I CAN’T wait for the anime to finish
  • Holy wow, it was amazing

The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

  • 3/5 stars (honestly might be lower)
  • used mental illness as a plot point
  • didn’t allude to the ending ever
  • Really tried to make an unseen reveal and just threw all other parts of the story out
  • I honestly can’t tell if this was a let down or if I just don’t like dark academia????
  • I have a review coming soon!

56 Days by Catherine Ryan Howard

  • 2/5 stars
  • Do not recommend (I have a review coming soon!)

The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang

  • HOLY GOD YES
  • 5/5 stars
  • Please read this

Lol okay looking back this is a mess, but I did already talk about most of these in that short reviews post. And since one is a sequel and two are thrillers I can’t say too much. But 19 books in one month is fantastic! I’ll take it lol.

Also if any of you have a good manga series recommendation for me, let me know! 🙂

    1. I would say its pretty dark, but in my opinion it doesn’t go into detail as much as chapter 21. Like it’s war so it’s dark, but (mild spoiler??) Rin is pretty numb to everything due to the events of The Poppy War so it’s more watered down. I’d say is closer to like when they’re fighting at Sinegard if that helps!

  1. A productive July for you! I should really start reading Tokyo Ghoul at some point. I’ve been dipping into a few different manga series lately but mostly reading Rurouni Kenshin which is a reread of one of my favourite series (also been watching the live action movies of them on Netflix, highly recommend them!).

      1. I think I watch a few episodes of the Tokyo Ghoul anime and did like it but for some reason never got around to watching more or reading the manga even though I kept saying I would.
