My birthday month is coming to a close. I read 11 books this month, and participated in 5 readathons. I managed to be successful in 2 readathons, 50% in one, and failed the other two. So let’s see what I read in July!

June Wrap Up and Book Haul

This is slightly late, but only by a couple days. I didn’t really read much in June since it was month two of my reading slump. However I did managed to read 3 novels, 3 graphic novels, and 1 ARC along with 2 DNFs. I also went a little wild and bought 15 books (three of them have been read). So let’s see what I did.

Books completed:

  1. Fence vol 1 by C. S. Pacat 5 stars
  2. Not Your Sidekick by C. B. Lee 4 stars
  3. The Backstagers vol 1 by James Tyrion IV 5 stars
  4. Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill DNF
  5. Fence vol 2 by C. S. Pacat 5 stars
  6. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz 4 stars
  7. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff 5 stars
  8. Roseblood by A. G. Howard DNF
  • The Black Mage (ARC) by Daniel Barnes 4 stars
  • My two DNFs were both by authors I love which sucked but hey it happens. My favorite of the month was Illuminae, and I’m definitely continuing on.

    Now on to this haul I spoke of. There is a store in a city near me called 2nd and Charles, which is a used bookstore. They also sell new releases, but I mostly go for the used books since I’m just getting back into reading and want to read past popular books. Plus they are cheap. I went there twice in the month of June. I also bought my first Book Outlet purchase, which was a total of nine books. 

    The image won’t load for this one, but my first trip to 2nd and Charles resulted in me buying Illuminae and Carry On. I loved both of these.

  • These are from my second trip to 2nd and Charles. Aristotle and Dante has been read, currently reading Simon, and the other two will eventually be read lol
  • My Book Outlet order (minus Beautiful Creatures which I already owned and am currently reading). Dangerous to buy the whole series when I’m not even done reading the first book but hey I’m liking it a lot.
  • Well, that’s all everyone! I know July has barely started yet I already bought 3 books and I’m still waiting on my signed copies of two others to arrive. I will read all of these at some point lol have a great day everyone!
