This month has been one intense reading month. I have read 24 novels, 5 novellas, 1 audio book, 1 poetry collection, and 2 audio books, which is way more than I expected, but I realized towards the middle of July I had to read all the books for August, and September. So to get myself in the mood, I have many read-a-thons planned for August.
If you’re interested in the books I’ve read, I’ve taken this screenshots from Goodreads (we can be friends there if you like). I crossed out the books I read in June, but I started reading Odd and True in June and ended up finishing it in July. I finished my first audiobook for the blog as well, Woodcutter. And I was really trying to get through my Netgalley books at the end of last month, so that’s why there’s a few more advance read books at the beginning of July.
Then I sort of remembered I was going on vacation in September and had to have all my reviews done for September done BEFORE then. Which made me go on this intense reading spree that won’t be done until the end of August. I was also able to read Wild Beauty and Forest of a Thousand Lanterns because my friend lent me her ARC. I was able to read some comics this month – Ms.Marvel which I loved and Lumberjanes. AND finally I got to Seafarer’s Kiss which I absolutely adored.
SO just ignore the repeats, I realized when I was going to take these that I didn’t have the two books I finished yesterday and will finish after I write this post – River of Teeth. I finally got to read The Library of Fates and go on that magical ride and I was send Warcross which made me unbelievably happy!
I have to go with The Kite Runner. Not only does it feel fantastic to get this off my TBR, but it was such a profound and emotional book. If you’ve read it, you probably know.

What’s Coming Up in August?
As I mentioned, I am participating in #ARCAugust, a Make Me Read-a-Thon (vote if you haven’t already!), #TheReadingQuest, and another WWRead-a-Thon. All of this is designed to get my butt into gear for all this reading. I have to read a book a day until I leave, and a review a day. Challenged? I am feeling the heat.
How was your July? Any exciting August plans?
