July: It’s a Wrap

It’s August already. Where is this year flying too? Next month I go to Barcelona, and the month after Florida, and then the month after is my birthday and the month after is Christmas, and then it’s NEXT YEAR. OK, so there may have been a mild panic there, but seriously, this year is flying by in a whirlwind of work, books, film, and a sport and it’s exciting and scary that it’s going so quickly in equal measures. I may not have read as many books as I did last month, but I read a lot of incredible stories, and ticked off some more challenges for Around the Year. I rated almost everything incredibly highly this month, and entered some new and incredible worlds.

In July, I read 8 books, which is 2377 pages, and all of which are new reads to me.

I read fiction books, a mix of Romance, Children’s, YA, Fantasy, Classics, Movie Tie-in and Contemporary

By Format, I read Audiobooks, 2 Paperbacks, 1 E-Book, 1 Comic/Graphic Novel and 2 Hardbacks. 

The average rating was 4.5/5 Stars for all of the books that I read in July.

I’ve read some good books this month, but the ‘Books of the Month’ for July is…

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

I think there is potential for thinking to myself that this hasn’t been as good a reading month as I thought when I look above, but in between the layers, I have been reading The Count of Monte Cristo for The Full Monte readathon and that is a long classic that takes time and effort to read. I’ve read a few different things this month and read enough for the OWLS Readathon Resit that my NEWTs Readathon TBR looks exciting and interesting. Bout of Books is back this month which is one of my favourite readathons, and between the two I am hoping to have a reading filled August, read and review some ARCs I’ve had for a little while, and finish The Count of Monte Cristo. Let’s see eh!

I’m ready for a book filled August, are you?

How has your July gone? What did you read?

Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
