July 2020 Book Round-up

It's that time again! As another month draws to a close, it is time for me to share with my round-up of my July reading. Honestly, July has not been a big reading month of me, unlike past months. Currently, I am 28/50 books read for my reading goal of 50 books this year, which as I write this post according to good reads means I am still on track to meeting my goal. But I think that it is a good thing that July has not been as big of a reading month for me. It's important that every month can't be this power though book month, and I have been more or less emotional this month as well, which explains the decline in posts of me.

But! I am getting back on track, I am going to stop rambling and share this month's books with you. This month I have only completed two additional books Whiskey and Ribbons by Lessa Cross-Smith and The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa. I am currently reading two books as well though, Hood Feminism and Mexican Gothic so expect reviews on these soon.

So let''s get into the roundup. Ironically, both of the books that I read this month were rated the same. 4.5 stars.

Whiskey and Ribbons. You can find my original more detailed review of Whiskey and Ribbons here. Ugh. Whiskey and Ribbons solidified my love of Lessa Cross-Smith, just like how I am a stan for Taylor Jenkins Reid, I am a stan for Lessa Cross-Smith, and quickly becoming one of Talia Hibbert as well but that is the stuff of another post. I ended finishing this book in a day, the lush descriptions and emotional learning, understanding, and turmoil of all of the characters in this book was everything. Its a must-read y'all. A must-read.

The Worst Best Man. You can find my original review of The Worst Best Man here. Can you say adorable little romcom? That it. That's what this book was a delicious and adorable rom-com. I loved every minute of reading this book. It was cute, funny, and enjoyable. But most of all it had diversity, and I like my romance novels to be more reflective of real-life with women and POC,not just the hallmark only straight white people find love in places where no one darker than a paper bag lives. Sweet little read and if you like a good rom-com add this one to your list.
