Because of all the events going on at work, a majority of my July reads were for work. I loved the excuse to reread all of Megan Whalen Turner’s Queen’s Thief books, of course – especially for the first four books, because it was my first time listening to them on audio. I also reread a lot of comics, mostly rereads of stuff I’ve previously read in single issues, because they were quick reads that acted as a sort of palate cleanser between novels. Totally Awesome Hulk was my favourite of these – I love the four-issue arc about the Protectors, a group of Asian-American superheroes (which includes Amadeus Cho, of course, and my other favourites Silk and Ms. Marvel!) The Grounded storyline for GotG was fun while it lasted, and Mariko Tamaki’s Hulk is amazing.

Back in May, I had lists of new YA and fantasy novels I wanted to read throughout July and August. I put aside most of these, reading the books for work instead (and not regretting it one bit, because I loved everything I read this month!) I thought that I’d be eager to go back to my TBR now, but somehow, despite the fact that I’m currently in the middle of two new books (Love, Hate, and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed and 10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac) I feel like rereading instead. I’m probably going to move on to my next DWJ reread (Hexwood) soon – finally!
