 July is my birthday month and it's also YALC so I got lots of books this month!

I only received the July FairyLoot box today (31st July) so I haven't included it here.

For my birthday, I got Planets by Andrew Cohen and Professor Brian Cox, The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf, Lifel1k3 by Jay Kristoff and The Girl in Red by Christina Henry.

I bought Ms. Marvel, Volume 10 and Under a Dancing Star by Laura Wood for myself. 

The Starlight Watchmaker by Lauren James was a signed pre-order.

All the Bad Apples by Moïra Fowley-Doyle was sent to me by Penguin as I'm part of the blog tour.

The Storm Crow was in the July Book Hooked Box subscription box.


From YALC, I got:

Lost Boy by Christina Henry,
an ARC of The Loop by Ben Oliver,
An Illusion of Thieves by Cate Glass,
an ARC of I'm Not Dying Here With You Tonight by Kimberly Jones and Gilly Segal,
This Time Will Be Different by Misa Sugiura,
Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand,
Ancestral Night by Elizabeth Bear,
and Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan


It was my birthday this month!

It was also YALC (the Young Adult Literary Convention that is held at Olympia with the London Film and Comic-Con).
This was my fifth time going and I had a great time.


I'm Not Dying Here With You Tonight by Kimberly Jones and Gilly Segal
