Even though I don’t post TBRs every month, I’m doing so for July to keep myself on track and to share my reading plans with everyone! I love reading people’s monthly TBRs, which is just another reason why I should probably do so here on Fangirl Fury more often. I’ve split my TBR into ARCs (mostly from Book Expo), library books, and owned books. I’ll more than likely read more than what’s on this TBR (and let’s be honest, probably won’t read a book on here) since I’ve read at least 16 books in both May and June.

I definitely want and need to keep up with my Fall 2019 review books, but I also like borrowing and reading from the library as much as possible since I don’t have necessarily easy access to one at school. My college town’s local library is lacking a bit in their YA section and I don’t really have time during the week this semester to take the walk into town to go. I’m constantly having to renew books from my library at home since I’m at school more and I can only have more popular titles on hold for 2-4 weeks at a time.


The Map From Here to There by Emery Lord – At the time of this post, I am currently rereading or have just finished rereading The Start of Me and You. I considered holding off a little bit closer to January 2020 to read The Map From Here to There, but I’m just too excited to have a new Emery Lord book and reunite with my ficitional bf, Max.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – Speaking of books I cannot hold off on reading any longer, I will be diving into Leigh Bardugo’s Ninth House this month. I’ve had this book on my TBR since it was first ever announced and I’m still in shock I have a copy.

The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett – There a few things better than having one of your all-time favorite authors come out with 2 books in one year, with Jenn Bennett’s Serious Moonlight and Fall 2019 release, The Lady Rogue. In this case, one of those better things is having a review copy for The Lady Rogue. This is Jenn Bennett’s first YA fantasy book, so I’m excited to see what she does with the genre.

Unpregnant by Jenni Hendricks and Ted Caplan- Unpregnant is one of my most anticipated contemporary releases this fall, and it’s received nothing but rave early reviews.

Pretty Guilty Women by Gina Lamanna- I’ll read almost any book that has something to do with weddings, especially when there seems like there’s a Big Little Lies-esque twist.

Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi- Although I just enjoyed Emergency Contact, I’m looking forward to reading Mary H.K. Choi’s upcoming release. I’m also just so in love with this cover!


Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren –  I was fortunate enough to have read an ARC of Twice in a Blue Moon in June, which made me realize I need more Christina Lauren in my reading life. Everyone knows I’m a contemporary reads girl at heart, but I especially look for contemporary books during the summer. While its one of their adult books, Love and Other Words does have a somewhat YA twist, as the book alternates between teenage and adult Elliot and Macy.

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren – Like I said above, I’m on a bit of a Christina Lauren high right now and everyone has had nothing but glowing and positive things about their latest release, The Unhoneymooners. 

All American Boys by Jason Reynolds – I want to read this one to start some preliminary research for my English senior research project, not to mention that it’s about time that I’ve read one of Jason Reynolds’ books!

Owned Books 

Open Road Summer by by Emery Lord – I’ve been holding off on reading my UK edition (her UK covers are amazing!) of Open Road Summer since last September because me being me, try to save as many summer contemporaries for summer as possible! It will be bittersweet reading both Open Road Summer and The Map From Here to There this month because I will have officially read all of Emery Lord’s books.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake – I plan on trying to binge read what’s published so far in the Three Dark Crowns series between July and August, so I’m ready for the series finale, Five Dark Fates, in September.

Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West – I may hold off on Listen to Your Heart until August, but again I saved this book to have another summer contemporary for summer.
