It is almost July now, which means it is time to talk about what I’m planning to read in July! I’m actually really excited about this TBR because this is the first one that I’ve made this year that I actually think I’m going to be able to stick to. I have a whole 2 and a half months to dedicate to getting caught up on my 2019 TBR, but let’s start with July…
Harry Potter (books 2, 3 and 4) by J.K.Rowling
Now that it is summer, I am officially starting my re-read of Harry Potter, both for my own enjoyment and so that I can start writing my in-depth book to movie comparison reviews of them that I’ve had planned since last summer! They will be coming out of the next few months as I finish each book, so keep an eye out for those and I may consider doing in-depth book reviews as well, so let me know if you want to see that! When I’m writing this, June isn’t over just yet and I am currently reading the Philosopher’s Stone, which I am hoping to have finished before July starts, so I am aiming to get book 2, 3 and 4 read in July. I have said books 2-4 purely so I don’t set myself a huge goal and disappoint myself if I don’t reach it; however, I know myself well and I am fully reading to launch back into reading everyday and I adore Harry Potter, so I suspect that once I start, I won’t be able to stop, so I will likely get a few more read.
You Do You by Sarah Knight
I don’t know if I’m going to get around to reading any other books during my Harry Potter re-read because I tend to get so immersed in the world that I couldn’t possibly read anything else; however, if I find myself needing a break from Harry Potter, as unlikely as it is, then I’d like to read ‘You Do You’ by Sarah Knight. I read her other two books earlier this year and found them so useful, but I just never got around to reading the last one because of exams. If you don’t know, Sarah Knight writes self-help books, but they are quite different from the usual self-help books. She has been named ‘The Ant-Guru’ because her books are incredibly real and down to earth, there is a fair bit of swearing and she gets really real about what she does and does not give a sh*t about and that is a style of self-help book that I find incredibly useful.
Those are the 4 books I have on my TBR for July, although I suspect I will read a good few more than that 😁! What are you planning to read in July? I’d love to know, so leave a comment down below or come and chat to me on my Instagram (@theoriginalbookdragon)
Goodbye for now!
