July 2019 Reading & Blogging Wrap-Up


Happy August bookworms!

Where did the summer go?  We are just two short weeks away from the back-to-school madness and I am NOT ready!  July was much busier than I ever anticipated.  Between vacation, hosting out of town family, football, cheerleading, summer camps, and birthday parties, our summer is flying by.

Let’s see what I read & blogged this month…


What I read this month


Challenge Updates

Goodreads Challenge Update: 76/100 books read


#YARC2019 Update: 14 books read


I read 1 book for #YARC2019 in July: The Twelve by Cindy Lin.  You can see my progress for this challenge here ⇒ Year of Asian Reading Challenge TBR + Progress Tracker #YARC2019

2019 Goals Update:

» 80% NetGalley feedback ratio = 15 backlist ARCs ⇒ 7/15 ARCs read

Much like June, I did not read any backlist ARCs.  BUT I did post a review, so my NetGalley feedback ratio is now 69%.

» 30 physical TBR books ⇒ 17/30 books read

I read 4 books off my physical TBR in July!  I read Challenger Deep, American Gods, Trail of Lightning, and Normal People.

» No buying new books ⇒ 0 books purchased!

My local Books & Company held a sale where you could purchase any book for a penny a page.  For example, if you wanted a 500 page book, it would cost you $5.   As much as it pained me, I did not go.  I knew I would not be able to control myself.

» Read long books I’ve been putting off ⇒ 1/3 books read

I finally made some progress on this goal!  I read American Gods, which was one of the 3 “long” books I wanted to read this year 🙂

  1. Looks like you had a really great reading month! I’m so excited to see you enjoyed Red Sister— I had that on my TBR for July but didn’t get around to it. Thanks again for participating in my readathon. ♥️ Hope August is a good month for you!


  2. Looks like you had a great month! I hadn’t heard of Challenger Deep before, but I’m definitely adding it to my wishlist now! Especially since I loved his writing in Unwind. Have a wonderful August! xx


  3. How is it back to school month already I am so surprised that I go the school list letters the other day! The kids were even more surprised!! Did we even have a summer?!? Looks like you had a wonderful month of reading, I can’t even remember what I read haha.
