July was a month of change for me. I moved (just 20 minutes away, but still) and Summer Reading still proves to be keeping me worn out at work, so this is another month of mostly mood reads. I never thought I’d use Kindle Unlimited so much, yet here we are…
Last month I read 50 books*!
*counting novellas and graphic novels
My reading amount continues to drop, but that is probably for the best!
Here are the top 8 books I read this month:
A decent haul this month, although much smaller than last month 😄
I started this series and couldn’t stop. Because I read the first one on KU I didn’t buy it, but I am planning on it sooner or later.
Reading Challenges/Goals Update
Goodreads Reading Challenge
Currently surpassed my goal by 60%. I’m not increasing it, we will just see how far I actually go.
»Pop Sugar Reading Challenge
38/52! I’m happy with this, but soon I’m going to need specifically searching for books to fulfill prompts.
»Read More Childrens/Middle Grade books
No middle grade books this month, yet I have 2 out from the library currently…
»Read More Diverse Books
Didn’t do great here either. A few titles could count, but a few out of 50 is not good. I need to do better.
»Series TBR Takedown
Lol this is so dead.
»Take Time to NOT Read
Now that I live with a co-worker I have spent more time talking with people after work. I’ve also been trying to make time to watch Veronica Mars. I’m one season in, but choosing to NOT read is such a hard decision…
»Additional Monthly Goals….
I wanted to read 13 ARCs… I read like 3 🙄 so that didn’t happen…
BUT, I did get reviews written for books read in May and June!! 🎉🎉🎉
At one point my ‘to-be’reviewed’ shelf was down to 10!! I mean… it is at 26 now, but even this amount is the lowest it has been in… months. Perhaps since February or March–like so, so long ago.
While I have had quite a few 4 star reads this month, I don’t think they are super memorable, so that’s why my Top Reads are fewer this month. BUT, I’m having fun and honestly, that’s the reason I read, so I’m happy even if I’m not fulfilling challenges.
