A MidSummer Night's Reading...

I'm a little late with July's list, folks.  Sorry about that, but there was just no help for it.  I finally got my pre-order in from a book that EVERYONE and their mother has had for eons.  I was literally the last person in the world to get her copy and I just had to sit down and read as soon as I got it in my hot little hand. 

And, boy was it a fantabulous read.  I'm sure you're all just dying to know the name of said book, but since it was read in August, you'll just have to wait to hear about it later.  Na-na-na-boo-boo.

Okay, so on with my July Reading list!  And, let me tell you, I got so lost in all these books.

  • THE LOVER'S DICTIONARY by David Levithan ... YA literary
  • THIS GORGEOUS GAME by Donna Freitas ... YA literary
  • HOLD STILL by Nina LaCour ... YA literary
  • A STORM OF SWORDS by George R.R. Martin ... Fantasy
  • GONE, GONE, GONE by Hannah Moskowitz ... YA literary ARC
  • STORK by Wendy DelSol ... YA paranormal romance
  • ALSO KNOWN AS ROWN POHI by Ralph Fletcher ... YA contemporary ARC
  • FLYAWAY by Helen Landalf ... YA contemporary ARC
  • DEVIANT by Adrian McKinty ... YA mystery/suspense ARC
  • VAMPIRE INSTINCT by Joey W. Hill ... Paranormal
  • BEYONDERS: A WORLD WITHOUT HEROES by Brandon Mull ... YA fantasy
  • RAW BLUE by Kirsty Eagar ... (Aussie**)YA literary 
  • HOW I LIVE NOW by Meg Rosoff ... YA contemporary
  • BUT I LOVE HIM by Amanda Grace ... YA literary

That's my list for July, minions.  Did you read any on this list?  How did you enjoy them?  As always, book recs are always appreciated.   What do you think I should go for next?  I'll just be over here with my nose stuck in yet another book ;)

**I point out the fact that this is an Aussie book only because I had the devil's own time hunting this book down. Only after I begged it from a blog buddy did I get to enjoy it, and let me tell you, I'm so glad I got to read it!
