July Wrap Up (I might have skipped June)

~reading

How many books that I planned did I read?

I planned six and I read five of those, plus four others I picked up during the month

The Plan:

The Result:

For the Wolf is one I’ve just kind of hit a wall with. I don’t know why I’m not that into it, I’m just… not. So it’s kind of in limbo right now. I read some every now and then, but usually opt for something else instead. I’ll probably finish it… eventually.

I had been waiting on The Complete List of Jericho for a while and was so excited when it finally arrived! I’m glad it lived up to my hopes, and indeed, exceeded them! Tokyo Ever After on the other hand.. well, I was pretty disappointed with that one. It didn’t feel like it brought anything new to the kind of story it was, and overall I’m pretty meh about it all. I did have one more unexpected hit to round it out though, because 56 Days was WAY better than I expected!

I picked up a few others through the month as well (not surprising, right?). The School for Good Mothers is one I was invited to read through NetGalley and YUP it was right up my alley. Keep an eye out for that review!

The Lucky Escape was an ARC I was drawn to for it’s romcom happy vibes. It’ll be a good break in the winter when it’s published next January!

The Puma Years is one I got a while ago and started reading when I had nothing else particularly lined up… and once again, I LOVED it. WOW. Like, I finished it and immediately looked up the organization and started wondering if I could actually handle it or not. (Answer: not. I know myself…)

And finally, Stay Gold! This one is special for me because I snagged it on my trip to the library! My first visit to a library in about two years due to Covid, and also my first visit to my new library after I moved earlier this year. The library is awesome, and the book was too. šŸ˜Š

Well, not much. Some health stuff kept me pretty limited this month, so as you can see… a lot more reading than the past few months. šŸ™‚

I was still a little less active here than I typically am, so there’s not really a whole lot I want to highlight from July. One thing I did put a lot of time into, though, is the visual review gallery! It’s a much nicer way to see the full list of reviews on the blog. Whether looking for a specific book, or looking through to see what you might want to read, it makes it a lot easier (and prettier to look at!)

Here are some of my favorite posts I worked on this month, in case you missed them!

And here are some of my favorite posts by other bloggers!
