I’m going to be trying something a little different this month. Instead of my usual Wrap-Up and TBR, I’m going to make a combination sort of post that I’ll be using from now on because it’ll be a huge time saver.
I had such a great reading and blogging month! I hit 50 posts, YAY. I also read and reviewed five books this month, and I so could have managed six if I hadn’t hit a reading slump at the end of the month. Either way, I’m happy about the fact that I managed to read and blog more this month!

Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout [REVIEW]
A Court of Mist and Fury was my favorite read this month. I loved that book so much. It’s also the book that caused my reading slump and I ended up rereading it twice. Honestly, all of the hype surrounding ACOTAR and ACOMAF is well earned because wow.
Do I really have to wait until next year for the next book? I need to know what happens!
Last month I said I had to go on a book buying ban because I desperately need new shelves. I was successful! I only bought one book this month and it was an eBook for $.99. I also won a giveaway for an autographed book at the beginning of the month. So, June was not a book buying month for me.
Bought: Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Won: Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick
I also made a trip to Barnes & Noble on one of the days they were doing B-Fest and got some goodies. Free bookish stuff YAY!
I’m going into July without an actual TBR. I’m going with whatever catches my eye this month as I’m just starting to get out of my ACOMAF induced reading slump. Currently, the only books I’ve actually planned to read is Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig and Torn by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
But I’ve also just started Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins and it’s pretty great so far! Although I’m still within the first few chapters so we’ll see.
I only have a few goals for July.
- Keep up with blogging
- Keep up with school
- Keep up with work
- Read more
I managed to do a lot of blogging this month and I want to keep that pattern going because it’s been fun, and I love getting on here and chatting with all of you and reading your posts.
I do, however, have a feeling that toward the end of July I’ll have to take a tiny break again just to finish out the current class I’m taking. I want to ace that final paper!
I had a great month! I’ve also officially been blogging for three months. Which is crazy! How has it already been three months?
I didn’t stick to my June TBR completely. I ended up knocking off The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout because of my reading slump. I wasn’t in the mood for it. Who knows, maybe I’ll pick it up sometime this month?
I read five books though! That may not seem like a big deal, but I’ve been consistently only managing three books a month so I’m extremely happy about that. I hope I can keep that pattern up in July!
My first month as a college student went well, but I definitely need to get a handle on my procrastination. We have to do these discussions that are due every Thursday and I keep putting them off until the last minute. Oops 🙈. I ended up having to take a Mini-Hiatus this past week so that I could get myself to focus a bit more because I had a paper due. My Mini-Hiatus is officially over now, but might be making an appearance again at the end of July.
Can you believe it’s already July!? The first half of 2016 flew by! Here’s to hoping the second half of 2016 is a good one for us all. 😊
Anyway, I hope all of you had a great month as well!
What books did you read this month? What was your favorite? Did you have a good blogging month or just a good month in general? What do you plan on reading in July?
