What Deanna Read #66: July 2021

Hellooooooo!!! Where did July go???

Okay, we are in the countdown to the second half of the year and well and truly in it now. Are you ready for it? What plans do you have for the rest of the year?

On our part, not much. Our state has an outbreak right now and a large part of the city and suburbans areas are in pretty serious lockdown. In the country region where we life, high restrictions but no lockdown. Masks mandatory everywhere inside and outside. We are doing our bit and staying home except for going out for essentials being grocieries and food, and doctor's appointments. This is not so bad for us since we are super duper introverts and have worked from home for the last seven years or so. Being home is fine for us, but my heart goes out to those people who are strugglings and their jobs are affected. Enough of that gloom. Moving on...

Here's what I read for the month.

This month compensated for the very average month last month. I've had some fantastic reads and found a new-to-me favorite author. Hooray!!

First off, One More Day by Auryn Hadley. What a beautiful story!! It's heartfelt and moving and shines a light on cancer sufferers and the people who support them. Beautiful story with beautiful people. Run and get it.

I dived into the middle of a series based on a recommendation and read Treasure Of The Fire Kingdom by Cassandra Gannon. Such a fun story with a grumpy hero who looks like a monster and a sunshiney heroine who thinks he's the most handsome creature there is. There's hijjinks and shenanigans and it was so much fun. I had a big smile on my face the whole time I was reading the book.

Two fabulous TS Joyce reads this month with How It Will Be and Gray Back Alpha Bear. As always, Ms Joyce brings wonderful stories with beautiful characters filled with heart and emotion. She's got a lifelong fan in me.

Another new discovery this month after I got sucked in reading an excerpt from an ad. What a fun little excerpt but boy, the story packed a punch. It was filled with intensity and heat and heart. Man, it had me gasping. I should probably tell you who or what I'm referring to. It's Firefighter Griffin by Zoe Chant. I started on book three and have gone back to start from the beginning and have binged the series. If you enjoy shifter romance, this is another author I would highly recommend. It's right up there with my love of TS Joyce.
That's it from me. What did you read this last month? Do leave a comment and let me know.

Stay tuned for what Helen read too.

  1. Yes, August already. Unbelievable. I'm just sick of all the stop/start on going out etc. Put on do much weight in the last year or so, as have many of my friends. And I'm desperate to gey back to Benidorm. Plus a friend of over 50 years died in July too.
