After talking about our bookhaul and wrap up for July 2023, it’s time to take a look back at 2022. Today we have our looking back at our bookhaul post. Have we read the books we added to our shelves in July 2022? Keep on reading to find out!
July 2022 wasn’t a big bookhaul for me and when we posted our hauls, I had already read three out of the 4 books I bought that month. Is that still how it is a year later? Let’s find out!
It Happened One Summer – Tessa Bailey
Tessa Bailey is an author that’s hit or miss for me, but I really enjoyed It Happened One Summer. This was a fun summer read and it definitely lived up to its hype.
Nyxia Unleashed & Nyxia Uprising – Scott Reintgen
So it’s a year later and I still haven’t taken a picture of Nyxia Uprising, haha. The first two books in this series had me hooked and I did start Nyxia Uprising. Apparently, I got distracted and haven’t finished the series yet. I should though, because I believe I was already pretty far into the book.
Every Summer After – Carley Fortune
Every Summer After was a book I saw everywhere after it released. Hype surrounding a book can make expectations increase and that doesn’t always work. I flew through this book, but I can understand that some people didn’t like the ending. There were a few elements that I didn’t love, but all in all I enjoyed Every Summer After.

Last July is when I started sharing which audiobooks I spent my Audible credits on, so I finally have something to look back on! I got 2 new audiobooks in July 2022, but have I listened to both? Let’s take a look.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes – Suzanne Collins
Just like yesterday’s post this was another one where I got influenced by something I saw on TikTok haha. I love the Hunger Games and after seeing a couple videos talking about the prequel and the parallels with the main story I had to dive in. And I had to watch the movies again haha. This was an enjoyable read and I’m excited to see the movie.
A Master of Djinn – P. Djèli Clark
I’m a bit ashamed that I haven’t listened to this one yet. The novella and short story in this world were amazing and I’m pretty sure I’m going to live this one. I did start the audiobook at some point but with the magic system it was a bit to difficult. Most of the fantasy books I go though via audiobooks are rereads or low fantasy stories. But since I’ve listened to a lot more since then, I should probably give it another try soon!
