July Wrap-Up

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful July full of lots of good books. This month was actually pretty successful for me, and I’m happy that I finally picked up the pace. I’m still seven books behind on my reading goal, according to Goodreads, buuuut that’s okay. We don’t worry about that. Hopefully I’ll have more good months like this to catch up.

This month I read a total of eight books, and I think I wrote reviews for most of them:

  • Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
    • My rating: 3/5 stars
  • Gilded by Christina Farley
    • My rating: 3/5 stars
  • Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon hale
    • My rating: 5/5 stars
  • Circe by Madeline Miller
    • My rating: 5/5 stars
  • Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
    • My rating: 4/5 stars
  • Furyborn by Claire Legrand
    • My rating: 2/5 stars
  • The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle
    • My rating: 3/5 stars
  • The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith
    • My rating: 4/5 stars

I was able to read these mostly due to the fact that it’s summer, so no school, but also because I did quite a bit of traveling this month. First was Boston, the week of July 4th. While there, I did my orientation for Northeastern University and also did a bunch of cool tours to see the history of the city, which was really fun. We also went to Disneyland! It’s one of our favorite places to go as a family, and this year it was exciting because we saw the redesigned Pixar Pier. It was super cool and I’d totally recommend going if you have yet to see it.

July 2017 Wrap-up

Wd125_19 I cannot believe it’s already August!! Summer (despite my lazing about)
has passed so quickly. School starts in less less than two weeks for me…

So, the summer has been super slow reading for me, unfortunately. I reduced my Goodreads goal from 110 books to 90 books–hopefully I can reach it! I think it is a more reasonable goal, and I’m a little past halfway done.

I read 6 books in July (but one of them was only 100-ish pages lol). Here are my thoughts:

September Wrap-Up

Wd125_15

Well, another month gone. I can’t believe that it’s October already, although it doesn’t feel like it because the high here is still about 90 degrees (not exaggerating).

 

This was definitely a slow reading/blogging month for me, as I was adjusting to school, getting my license (16, whoop!), and planning parties. Overall, I read a measly six books. I’m definitely going to have to make up for this in October. On the bright side, now that I have a car and can drive wherever my heart desires, book-buying is no longer limited to Amazon (smirk intensifies.)

July Wrap-Up

Well… another month of summer gone. I cant believe school starts August 29th. July went by WAY too fast.

I haven’t really been keeping a list of my July haul, so I’ll just show you the books I read and the ratings I gave them. If they were really fantastic I’ll probably rant about it. Anyways, at nine books, this was a semi-successful reading month–although I try for at least ten a month. That way I’ll have quite a bit of leeway in my 100-book 2016 goal.

2016 Progress as of Today (8/2/16): 74/100 Books
