July 2020 Book Haul

This month I have noticed that I have gone down the Non-Fiction route with a lot of what I have bought. I guess I was missing it in my life and didn’t realise. But looking back I do have monthly phases in my book hauls of buying mostly one genre. I digressed completely there but I do have some incredible books on this list that I think you should check out. If you know me you will know I am the biggest fan of Ancient Egyptian history for me it is just incredibly fascinating and has empowering women within it. So when I heard there was a new edition of the Book of the Dead I had to have it. For me the most exciting book on this list is I’ll Be Gone in the Dark as I recently watched a trailer for the adaptation they are doing on HBO which looks incredible so I bought it. I finally decided to get The Court of Miracles which I am super excited for as it is fantasy and the French Court so guaranteed to be fabulous.

Let me know in the comments what books, comics and manga you are excited to buy this month.  If you have read any of the books I have talked about lets have even more of a discussion in the comments.
