My July TBR Pile

July TBRI haven’t been reading much lately, as much as it pains me to admit that, so this is my first TBR pile post in a while.

Here are the books I am hoping to read in July.



1. Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia

This book sounds like Pretty Little Liars for an adult audience, and I just started reading it on the first of the month. I am 10% of the way through it and I am enjoying it so far.

2. Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson

I picked this up right after I finished Red Queen, and I am really loving it so far. I don’t read a lot of memoirs, but I am finding that I really like this one.

3. Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline

This is a book club pick that I am very excited to read. I am hoping to start this immediately after I read the first two books on this list.

4. The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty

This is my current audiobook and I am hoping to finish it soon. I am a quarter of the way through, and the story has sort of sucked me in.


5. Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

This is another book club pick that seems like something that I will really enjoy.  This is a novella and it looks like it should be a quick read.

6.  The Lauras by Sara Taylor

This is an ARC I have that comes out August 1st, so I am going to attempt to get this in right before it’s released. It sounds like a great

7. The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

This is the second book in the Madaddam Series by Margaret Atwood, and I’ve been wanting to read it since I read Oryx and Crake last year. So I think it’s about time I buckle down and give this a shot.

8. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

I keep hearing about this book and I have it in my to-be-listened to audio collection. I think it’s finally times that I set that up.

What’s made it to your TBR list this month? Share the books you hope to read this month in the comments below.

    I’d love to read Everything You Want Me To Be too. It’s good to hear you like it so far! Nice and diverse list! I don’t make much plans in advance regarding my reading in a month.. I’m almost through my review books (I have two requests pending) so its all open then. I requested the new Robert Dugoni book (nr. 5 I think) and I’d really like to read that one!

      It’s great so far, I am about three chapters in. And it does remind me of Pretty Little Liars right now…but I am sure it will take on a shape of its own. I am trying not to make lists that are too ambitious. Three of these books I’ve already started and I am about a quarter of the way through, so depending on how this weeks I may finish two of those. Then I have a couple book club books to read.

    OOO! Great TBR pile!
    Let me know how you like Everything You Want Me To Be – it’s been under my radar for quite a while now and noting that your comparison of it to Pretty Little Liars intrigues me even more!
    I recently finished Lang Leav’s Sad Girls which I loved! If you’re into a coming-of-age romance novel with a chilling twist I’d definitely recommend that one!
    I look forward to reading more from you soon, Happy July Reading 🙂
