Welcome to another Monthly Summary on Pages and Tea.
July’s reading featured thrillers with a mysterious and spooky air to them.
I began with The Hollows, a mysterious tale featuring a holiday gone wrong as a father and daughter discover that their idyllic cabin in the woods is actually in a place with quite a dark past, a past that may be about to have an impact in the present day. I really enjoyed the air of suspense of this, and didn’t want to put it down until all the secrets were revealed.
Next up was The Midnight Man, the first of the Slayton Thrillers. This was similar in that it was a thriller with a slightly spooky air that added a little something extra. In this case there was a marvellously creepy abandoned old house, a Halloween game gone wrong, and trouble from the past coming back in the present. I enjoyed this just as much as The Hollows.
My third book of this month was Billy Summers by Stephen King. I was looking forward to a new Stephen King novel as I’ve been rereading some of his older books recently so something new was good. Billy Summers has no horror, although there’s a mention towards the conclusion of a certain possibly haunted hotel. It’s a story of an assassin hired for one last job, and of course, one last job is never that easy, and that’s certainly the case for Billy.
So, some good books read this month. I also updated my Challenge Check-In post, looking at the various bingo cards I’m attempting this year, and I had time for a book tag featuring a number of the books I’ve enjoyed so far this year.

Gotta love a thriller filled month! I just read an amazing thriller (Daisy Darker) and now I want more😁
Will have to check out Daisy Darker because thrillers definitely seem to be what I’m in the mood for at the moment 😀
I’m also in the mood for thrillers at the moment – we should all be reading light beach reads given the time of year but here we are in search of all the dark things. Your reads sound awesome and I love the mention of the (possibly) haunted hotel in the Stephen King book.
I had an idea to read something light given the time of year but somehow that then became cabins in the woods and possibly haunted houses 😀 And now I’m starting to think about what I might read for Readers Imbibing Peril so not sure whether I’ll get any lighter reading in but I might still try if there’s time before the end of this month.
