July Wrap Up

Top Ten Tuesday(11).jpg

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!

July Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(72).jpg

Fortunately for once I actually stuck to my July TBR! With the exception of “Daughter of the Pirate King” since I had to return it to the library where someone had a hold on it, so maybe someday I’ll get to it! I definitely didn’t read as much as I wanted to this month, I still did pretty good don’t get me wrong, but I got pretty hung up with “Want” and that put me into a mini reading slump there unfortunately.

Overall July was still a pretty great month and I’m hoping it went well for all of you, my fellow book lovers, as well!

Books Read This Month: 6

The Disappearances by Emily Bain MurphyDreamfall by Amy PlumAlex + Ada, Vol. 1 by Jonathan LunaPretty Deadly, Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnickWant by Cindy PonQueens of Geek by Jen  Wilde

I pretty much enjoyed all of the books I read this July which is pretty awesome! The only book I didn’t really like a ton and was “meh” would be “Want” by Cindy Pon unfortunately. I know it’s had a ton of hype but it was just a little boring for me. My favorites of the month would have to be “Dreamfall”, “Pretty Deadly Volume 1”, and “Queens of Geek” which were all pretty damn awesome!

What I’m Currently Reading:

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and VirtueMonstress, Vol. 1: Awakening

I should have finished “Monstress” by now bu I just haven’t had time to sit down and give that one my full attention but it’s pretty dang good so far and the art is beautiful!

As for “The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue” it is immediately addicting and I’m actually having a ton of fun reading it!

July Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(8)

So this month was great as far as reading went but pretty dang awful as far as posts! In my defense though I’ve been going to the lake where I have absolutely zero reception and summer is always a busy time since there’s loads of fun stuff to go do!

Now that it’s August I’m going to try my hardest to get my posting back on track since it will be my one year blogiversary! I really can’t believe it’s already going to be a year since I started book blogging but there will be separate posts about that for sure so for now let’s get this wrap up started!

I have yet to review any of these books ( I know, shame on me) and therefore don’t have an official rating on them because my thoughts aren’t really settled on a few. However, since “Nevernight” will be released in one week my review will be up sometime this week so be on the look out!
