July Reading Wrap Up 2018

Welcome to the end of July and another Reading Wrap Up,

This month not only went quick but it feels like it never really happened, but then I look back at home much I have read and there is clear proof that the month was here and maybe my head was in to many books to notice the month going by (and I am not sorry for it). This month I not only read my TBR list and my Bonus books, I also read an extra 2 novella and 4 more books on top of my huge pile. So in total I read 17 books and I loved most of them.

This month I could not get enough of Contemporary and Romance novels. I would start one just before bed and I could not put them down till I had finished them. I have had a lot of anxiety issues and these books just leave me feeling happy so I think that is why I was eating them up this month.

On to my list of books I read in the month of July and my Star ratings:

  • When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon pgs. 380 – 4.5 STARS
  • Sleep Like a Baby Charlaine Harris pgs. 288 – 3.5 STARS
  • The Trial by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro pgs. 110 – 4 STARS
  • The Grim Grotto by Lemony Snicket pgs. 323 – 3 STARS
  • 16th Seduction by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro pgs. 355 – 4 STARS
  • The Thief by J.R. Ward pgs. 454 – 5 STARS
  • Carry On by Rainbow Rowell pgs. 522 – 3.75 STARS
  • Brave by Jennifer L. Armentrout pgs. 362 – 4 STARS
  • Attachments by Rainbow Rowell pgs. 323 – 4 STARS
  • Sassy Little Thing by Bella Jewel pgs. 219 – 4 STARS
  • Rainy Day Friends by Jill Shalvis pgs. 384 – 5 STARS
  • The Medical Examiner by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro pgs. 144 – 4 STARS
  • Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren pgs. 320 – 5 STARS
  • The Darkest Lie by Gena Showalter pgs. 442 – 3.75 STARS
  • Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson pgs. 464 – 4.5 STARS
  • Me, Please by Bella Jewel pgs. 219 – 4 STARS
  • Ronan by Teresa Gabelman pgs. 256 – 4 STARS 

TOTAL PAGE COUNT : 5,101

I have to say my Favourite book this month is a surprise to me because I have never read this author before and I only started this book when I did because it was on my phone and had nothing else on me at the time. Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren was such a fun read. I loved everything about this book and read it way to quickly for my taste, but the good thing about that is I can now read more of her books ASAP.

Well now to go figure out what I want to read for the month of August.

My Goodreads Reading Challenge

Hello and welcome to my new post,

I was looking over my blog tonight and noticed I never posted my Goodreads reading challenge number for the year. So I decided to look on Goodreads for the number of books I set my self to read for the year.

First thing I noticed was I set my goal as 75 books for the year and the second thing I noticed was I had already read 76 books. Yes you read right 76 books and I have no idea how that has happened being that we are only in July. So when I noticed that I decided to reset my goal to 100 books. I  know, I know its only 26 books for the rest of the year after reading 76 is just over 6 months, but I decided I wanted a lower number of books as the books I plan to read are a bit bigger than normal.

I have been setting Goodreads reading challenges for the past 4 years and I have loved knowing how many books I have read in a year. So stay tuned and see if I have to reset it again and what ends up being the total number of books I read by the end of 2018.

Have any of you set reading challenge goals ? and if so how many ?

Goodbye for now 🙂

June 2018 Book Haul

Welcome to my very first book haul,

I decided not only to share with you all what books I got in the month of June but also by writing down how many books I got in a month might keep me in check. This month I can clearly say that did not happen, whoops. The problem I have is so many books that I love seem to come out around this time of year and I keep finding new authors that are amazing. So in saying all that welcome to the very first book haul list.

  • The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
  • Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
  • Save the Date by Morgan Matson
  • Skulduggery Pleasant Midnight by Derek Landy
  • Without Merit by Colleen Hoover
  • Legendary by Stephaine Garber
  • Raelia by Lynette Noni
  • Draekora by Lynette Noni
  • Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
  • The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
  • The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

I plan on doing a book haul each month from now on as long as I get books within the month (who am I kidding I haven’t ever not brought a book in a month). I hope you enjoy seeing my hauls and if there is anything else you would love to see please let me know. I could always use ideas for fresh content.
