2021 Popsugar Reading Challenge - Update #7 & Mini Reviews

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to my seventh 2021 Popsugar Reading Challenge update with mini reviews!  I completed 3 books this July for a grand total of 32 of 50 books finished for the 2021 Popsugar Reading Challenge.  That puts me 64% of the way through this yearly challenge!  Without further ado, here are my thoughts on the books I completed in July for this challenge in the order I read them in:

❋ ❋ ❋ 
The Yard (Scotland Yard's Murder Squad #1) by Alex Grecian is a really good historical mystery thriller.  It really had me hooked right from the beginning and it rarely lets up.  That said, I just don't know if I'm interested in continuing the series though at this point.

My review is also on Goodreads and on my blog.


❋ ❋ ❋ 
Race to the Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse is a great stand alone MG fantasy adventure.  Rebecca Roanhorse has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I'm glad I decided to try this book.  I've always enjoyed seeing mythology and folklore brought into the present day, and this was a fun look into Navajo mythology.  If you enjoy Rick Riordan and Kwame Mbalia's sense of adventure and creative use of mythology, I have a feeling you'll enjoy this too.

My review is also on Goodreads.


❋ ❋ 
The Mysterious Affair at Styles (Hercule Poirot #1) by Agatha Christie is my first ever Poirot novel.  I've been told it isn't necessary to read these in order, but I decided to start with the first book in the series.  I've seen enough Poirot adaptations that it's more than time I finally picked up the original source material.  While it isn't my favorite Agatha Christie story, it was a good intro to a new -to-me character and his style (at least in book format, anyway).

My review is also on Goodreads.
