I feel so freaking accomplished! Overall I had a fantastic month with both blogging and reading and I’m pretty proud of myself. I read 9 full books and did a whole lot more posts than I usually do and actually kept on top of things pretty well. I’m not going to get my hopes up too much for August but hopefully I’ll do well this coming month too!
Books Read This Month: 10 (Including 1 DNF)
This has honestly got to be one of my greatest reading months all year, especially since there isn’t a single graphic novel or novella used as filler for me! It’s also one of the few times I managed to fully complete my entire TBR for the month as well! I am so freaking proud of myself. But I digress, this was a pretty mixed month for books with some good and some bad.
Favorite reads of the month: Mistborn, Contagion, I Am Still Alive, Scream All Night, and Sea Witch.
Least favorite reads of the month: Campfire (kind of meh and in the middle), Hullmetal Girls, In The Vines (DNF), Girls’ Night Out (another meh one), and Heart of Thorns.
So it’s pretty evenly split with more overall good reads than really bad reads. Which I was pleased with, personally. Also a random tidbit that I noticed while doing this, I only read two books that are a part of a series this month. So strange since I feel there aren’t many YA standalones out there!

I’m over half way through this book and so far I’m not really impressed with it at all. It’s not all that creepy and it’s so, so, so boring. Hopefully my next read “Ruin of Stars” by Linsey Miller goes much better!
