🌸 Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of July, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. Well, as you have seen in my previous Wrap Up, I really haven’t been able to read a lot cause it has been a very busy month for me, so this month I feel a bit ambitious and I want to read everything, which is why I have many ideas and planned readings that I’m so excited to share with you. I think this month I will have enough time, besides work, isn’t such a busy month and I want to take my time to read, I feel I need it lol.
I plan to read 7 books, hopefully, this mont. It’s like a lot for me, I usually have an average of 5 books a month but still I feel very eager to try to push myself a bit and maybe I’ll achieve it, even if I don’t, it’s ok anyway. But, Wish me LUCK!🌸
💕 Before I start, I want to remind you that you guys are the best, thank you so much for the support I have from each and every one of you. I love checking all your posts and your blogs I think you all do such an incredible job and everyone deserves a great recognition for it, I’m sorry that sometimes I can’t read them all cause they’re a lot but I try to keep up to date because I love this kind of family that we all are part of, It’s a beautiful community with people who will always support you and listen to you and I just wanted to highlight this again and I hope it never changes💕
Goodreads Picks of Last Month
If you have seen my previous TBR, then you know that these are the books that Goodreads had chosen for me but I didn’t get to read them on June, so I really want to read them this month. I’m excited to know what I’ll think of each one and I can’t wait 🙌🏻

New Releases 🤗
Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno
Practical Magic meets Nova Ren Suma’s Imaginary Girls and Laura Ruby’s Bone Gap in this lush, atmospheric new novel by acclaimed author Katrina Leno.
A magic passed down through generations. An island where strange things happen. A summer that will become legend.
Georgina Fernweh waits impatiently for the tingle of magic in her fingers—magic that has touched every woman in her family. But with her eighteenth birthday looming, Georgina fears her gift will never come.
Over the course of her last summer on the island—a summer of storms, falling in love, and the mystery behind one rare three-hundred-year-old bird—Georgina will learn the truth about magic, in all its many forms.
In Summer of Salt, Katrina Leno weaves another gorgeously original novel of magical realism and coming-of-age. Fans of April Genevieve Tucholke and Anna-Marie McLemore will be swept away.
This book seems to be all I need and all I like in a book, as you know since I read The Wicked Deep I’m obsessed with magic, witches and islands lol, and from what this book describes I can feel that I’ll love it. I think it has something of Magical Realism which is a genre that is kind of new for me, but I’m excited cause the few experiences that I have with Realismo Magico were amazing so I can’t wait !. I feel it will be a 5 star for me, I hope so 🤞🏻
Out of the Blue by Sophie Cameron
Sometimes, I imagine alternate endings to the story: last-minute miracles, touches of magic. I picture how things might have gone, if I wasn’t there. If I’d left just a few minutes later. If I hadn’t been alone. It doesn’t make any difference. One way or another, the crash always comes.
Ten days after Jaya Mackenzie’s mum dies, angels start falling from the sky. Smashing down to earth at extraordinary speeds, wings bent, faces contorted, not a single one has survived.
Hysteria mounting with every Being that drops, Jaya’s father uproots the family to Edinburgh intent on catching one alive. But Jaya can’t stand this obsession and, struggling to make sense of her mother’s sudden death and her own role on that fateful day, she’s determined to stay out of it.
When her best friend disappears and her father’s mania spirals, things hit rock bottom and it’s at that moment something extraordinary happens: An angel lands right at Jaya’s feet, and it’s alive. Finally she is forced to acknowledge just how significant these celestial beings are.
Set against the backdrop of the frenzied Edinburgh festival, OUT OF THE BLUE tackles questions of grief and guilt and fear over who we really are. But it’s also about love and acceptance and finding your place in this world as angels drop out of another.
I have to confess that this was a cover-buy, YES, I’m guilty lol. But even so, I think that the story could have a lot of potential, I like how even when the plot it’s undoubtedly fantastic, touches as main themes the grief and guilt and finding our place in the world, and that is very interesting for me. I’m also very curious to know how the angel aspect is handled, I’m sure we’ve all read at least one book about angels, a few years ago was the popular theme, so I hope it’s approached in an original way, without falling into cliches
Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson
Mila Flores and her best friend Riley have always been inseparable. There’s not much excitement in their small town of Cross Creek, so Mila and Riley make their own fun, devoting most of their time to Riley’s favorite activity: amateur witchcraft.
So when Riley and two Fairmont Academy mean girls die under suspicious circumstances, Mila refuses to believe everyone’s explanation that her BFF was involved in a suicide pact. Instead, armed with a tube of lip gloss and an ancient grimoire, Mila does the unthinkable to uncover the truth: she brings the girls back to life.
Unfortunately, Riley, June, and Dayton have no recollection of their murders, but they do have unfinished business to attend to. Now, with only seven days until the spell wears off and the girls return to their graves, Mila must wrangle the distracted group of undead teens and work fast to discover their murderer…before the killer strikes again.
I absolutely love the synopsis of this book, I love the idea that the main character should revive her friends to find out what really happend with them, plus, the fact that it has a bit of mystery and magic makes me even more interested. I hope to enjoy it because I’ve heard very good things about it
