July Monthly Review & Book Haul

monthly review

It’s the end of July and the months are just breezing by! Summer’s almost over and next thing you know it’s Winter. Sorry for taking a while to reply to comments, I’ve been working like crazy this past week and actually running — I’m trying to run a 5k. Anyway, July was a great month even though I took a hiatus for a week or so because of family visiting. It made it kind of hard to get back into the reading and blogging groove after but I’ve been doing so well. I actually made a lot of posts ahead of schedule! Boom! So here’s the turnout for this month:

Wooo! Even with the hiatus and break, I was able to read more books this month than the last month! I didn’t stick to my TBR so well since I received more ARCs. I did read 4 out of the 7 that I chose for July! How was your month?! Did you get through your TBR?

Even though I couldn’t physically buy my own books, I made up with scoring all those ARCs! They’ll definitely keep me busy in the months to come. What did you buy or receive this month?!

    The blackmail boyfriend sounds really interesting adding it to my TBR and I’ll look forward to your thoughts on it. 🙂
