Read in English
July was quite a productive month, if you ask me. Between going to the beach and all the other summer activities, I managed to read four books, three of which already have a review up on the blog!
The first book I read was my first graphic novel: Saga, vol. I by Brian E. Vaughan and Fiona Staples.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and, since it is a graphic novel, I flew through it in about an hour (maybe one and a half).
The world is super cool and intricate, and it is sort of set in space, so I’m all about it!
The characters were super funny, but I must say the dialogue is not children-friendly – there’s a ton of swearing, and some of the scenes themselves are NSFW.
The illustrations are GORGEOUS, and the story is very captivating. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
For one of the blog tours I am a part of, I read The Inevitable Collision of Birdie & Bash by Candace Ganger.
This one I absolutely LOVED. It was heart-wrenching and heart-warming, all at once.
It’s a brilliant debut novel, and a very different kind of contemporary romance.
You can read the review here, in which I go more into detail about the book.
Next up, I read Into the Water by Paula Hawkins.
I really enjoyed it, it was a great first experience with thrillers, and I can’t wait to dive more into the genre – and to read Hawkins’s other book!
I won’t go into detail about it, because I already have a post entirely dedicated to it – you can read it here.
The last book I read was Literally by Lucy Keating.
This one was a bit of a disappointment, since I absolutely loved Dreamology, the author’s debut novel. I went into Literally with high expectations and, sadly, it never met them.
You can read all about my thoughts in the review I posted.
So those were all the books I read during the month of July. I enjoyed all of them – some more than others, of course.
What did you guys read in July? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to know!
Thank you so much for reading,
I’ll see you in my next post ♡

O mês de Julho não foi mau de todo: entre idas à praia, piscina e tudo a que o verão nos dá direito, acabei por ler quatro livros, sendo que escrevi/gravei opinião de três deles. Um mês produtivo!!
