July Wrap-Up


     Hello, hello! Come on in and get comfy!  This month has zoomed right by.  Guess what? I have some news! First, this month might have been the best reading month I’ve had all year. Well, it was lol. I read a total of twenty-one books ( two not pictured) this month but more about that later. Let’s talk about the Book Buying Ban I put myself on this month….it was a success! 

     I maintained all shelf control and didn’t one click or take a stroll into Barnes and Noble. Don’t get me wrong, there were definitely some temptations. So many sales, so many sales. Will I ever do another one? Maybe next year. Tomorrow, it is back to business and I have some books  I need to buy lol.

   Lastly, I’ve met my Goodreads goal of seventy-five books. Woohoo. Reading is not a competition ( in my opinion), so it was never really about the number for me but with everything I have going on, I’m glad to have met my personal goal. I read fifty-five books last year so I’m glad to have gone over that number. I’ve been home since March ( back to work on Monday) so that definitely played a role. Now onto the books! I read:

*** July was a success. I also think I did a pretty good job of reading from my TBR. Of the twenty-one books, only four were ARCs. The rest I owned. Did I put a dent into my tbr/ owned books? No,lol. So many books, so little time. ***

How did July go for you? Did you have any standout books? Any disappointments?
