So apparently I forgot I did this thing called Monthly Rundown because my last Monthly Rundown post was back in January lol Whoops. So here’s what happened in July!
Books Read: 17
- [7 Jul] The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones ★★★★★
- [8 Jul] A Sudden Crush by Camilla Isley ★★★½
- [21 Jul] The Voodoo Killings by Kristi Charish ★★★★½
- [22 Jul] The Heavenly Table by Donald Ray Pollock ★★½

Best of the Month: The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones ★★★★★
This series never fails to disappoint. It will be a very sad day when it comes to an end.
Least Favorite: The Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough ★★★
This was an obscure little read and not at all what I was expecting. Beautifully written but I’m not sure I went in with the right expectations.
Biggest Surprise: The Voodoo Killings by Kristi Charish ★★★★½
HUGE surprise. Huge. I won this in a giveaway and shocked myself by starting it immediately (usually those things tend to gather dust before I give them the attention they deserve) but wow, this was so fantastic!
Biggest Disappointment: The Heavenly Table by Donald Ray Pollock ★★½
To say that Donald Ray Pollock disappointed me is quite possibly the most disappointing thing I’ve ever said. Suffice it to say I had massively high hopes for this one and it just didn’t pull through. It happens.
I went on a bit of a graphic novel rampage and I rarely review those so that’s the vast majority of this list. My other reads will (hopefully) get posted in August sometime.
