July Run-Through & Booktube-A-Thon TBR

July Run-Through

Since July is inevitably over and we are already into the first week of August, it is time for my July Run-Through. This is where I highlight all the books I have read and the posts that have gone up on the blog last month. Let us jump right in!

Books I Finished




Books I Started

Goodreads Challenge Update

So as you can tell from above, I read 11 books this month! That means I have now read 17 books out of my goal of 35 this year. It should technically be 18 books, but one of the books I read was not on Goodreads (Oh well..what can you do?).

Booktube-A-Thon TBR

So the Booktube-A-Thon starts today and I am so ready to get some reading done! I currently have A LOT of books on my TBR, but I don't actually plan on getting to them all. This is more of different book options I can choose to read based on how I am feeling. I have tried to do set readathon TBRs before and they just never work out for me. This time around, I will just be using Booktube-A-Thon to basically only read the books I am really eager to read or have been meaning to read for a long time on my shelves. No review books this week! I will not be participating in the challenges for the readathon, but in my wrap up we will see at the end how many I subconsciously completed.
