Hello bookworms!

If you remember back to my July TBR post, I took a little break from ARCs in July.  After a few ARC heavy months, I just needed a little break to read whatever I was in the mood to read.  It was delightful, BUT I am ready to start chipping away at my ARC stack again.  For August, I am planning on reading a few ARCs, but also squeeze in a few sequels from series I started last year.  I’m also super excited for my book club’s selection this month.

Let’s see what’s on the schedule for this month, shall we?

July 2017 Wrap-Up + Book Haul

WWU18

Goodbye July, and hello August!

I cannot believe how quickly this summer is flying by.  One minute my kids are getting out of school for summer break, and the next I am gathering lists for back to school shopping!  July was a crazy month for me, but despite all the craziness I did manage to read 9 books & get a good amount of blogging done!  Yay for productivity!  My biggest news this month is that we bought a new house.  Unfortunately this isn’t a simple move… we are completely renovating the house over the next few months before we move in.  My husband flips homes for a living, and assures me that he can get this done in 2 months.  I’m not holding my breath lol  My goal is to move in before Christmas.  Please send me good vibes for my sanity throughout this process 🙂

Let’s see what I got accomplished in July, shall we?

Dividing readers into two categories: loved it or hated it, The Roanoke Girls may just be one of the biggest controversial & twisted books of 2017.

*Book Trigger/Content Warnings: suicide & sexual abuse.  This review will not go into either.
