So July is almost here and I thought it would be fun to do a post of books that are on my July TBR list. Most are ARC’s that I need to read but they are still books that I’m super excited to get to read so I wanted to share them with you all.
I’d love to hear about what you all are planning to read next month, let me know in the comments. Now let’s check out my July TBR list!

I am really looking forward to this one! I’ve started it and it’s actually really interesting so far!
Award-winning author Stephen Graham Jones returns with Night of the Mannequins, a contemporary horror story where a teen prank goes very wrong and all hell breaks loose: is there a supernatural cause, a psychopath on the loose, or both? Find it on Netgalley.
I just realized that this is by the same author as The Only Good Indians! I haven’t started this one yet but I’m really looking forward to it and given how well I’m liking his other book I’m sure to love this one too!
When twenty-nine-year-old Scarlett Vantassel comes to the conclusion that her life doesn’t resemble any of the things she actually wanted for herself, she drops out of school and moves back home, attempting to reconnect with the people she left behind.

YOU SHALL REAP WHAT YOU SOW Struggling with the effects of early-onset dementia, Dennie Keeling now leads a quiet life. Her husband is dead, her children are grown, and her best friend, Sarah, was convicted of murdering her abusive husband. After Sarah’s tragic death in prison, Dennie has found solace in her allotment, and all she wants is to be left to tend it in peace. Life remains quiet for twelve years, until three strangers take on a nearby plot and Dennie starts to notice unnatural things. Shadowy figures prowl at night; plants flower well before their time. And then Sarah appears, bringing dire warnings and vanishing after daubing symbols on the walls in Dennie’s own blood. Dennie soon realises that she is face to face with an ancient evil – but with her dementia steadily growing worse, who is going to believe her? Find it on Netgalley.
I’m really looking forward to this one. From the description to the cover. It just looks so good!
There’s something strange about the Silver family house in the closed-off town of Dover, England. Grand and cavernous with hidden passages and buried secrets, it’s been home to four generations of Silver women—Anna, Jennifer, Lily, and now Miranda, who has lived in the house with her twin brother, Eliot, ever since their father converted it to a bed-and-breakfast. The Silver women have always had a strong connection, a pull over one another that reaches across time and space, and when Lily, Miranda’s mother, passes away suddenly while on a trip abroad, Miranda begins suffering strange ailments. An eating disorder starves her. She begins hearing voices. When she brings a friend home, Dover’s hostility toward outsiders physically manifests within the four walls of the Silver house, and the lives of everyone inside are irrevocably changed. At once an unforgettable mystery and a meditation on race, nationality, and family legacies, White is for Witching is a boldly original, terrifying, and elegant novel by a prodigious talent. Find it on Amazon.
This one is from my bookshelf. I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile and so I have started. I was sad to see that someone had written inside my copy but it’s a really interesting book. It’s unusual in the best of ways.
That’s it for my July TBR list. I have a couple of other books for Blog Tours in August but because those are for specific Tours in August I didn’t want to include them in this list. It’s a lot for July, I have more that I should read but I’m trying to think in smaller piles to help me not feel like I won’t be able to read all the books that I want to.
Any good reads on your July TBR list? Anyone else have these books on their TBR list? I’d love to read your comments.
