Books Read: 4 (Saint Anything, The Start of Me and You, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, Golden)
All of these were books off my own shelves; three were purchased this year, and one was a book that has been on my shelves for a couple of years.
Books Acquired: None!
I have acquired a total of 23 books so far this year, and have already read 13 of them, so only 10 acquired and unread books -- pretty proud of myself for that one! I'm also halfway through a bind-up of the first two Lux books, so I'll soon be at 14.
Prequel & Sequel Challenge: None, it was a month of standalones.
Flights of Fantasy: None, I've definitely been craving contemporary!
TBR Challenge: All of my read books were off my shelves, but only one has been on my shelf for a while, so I'm up to 14 books so far this year!
The BlogI started off the month with deciding to do things a little differently here on the blog, and focus on the other aspects of my life beyond just reading. So far, I've shared a post about my yoga journey and I'm excited about writing other posts in the future. I also wrote two more updates on my reading (here's the first and second) and I'm thinking about doing these weekly from now on!
I also shared the Disney Princess Tag, which I found on Quinn's Book Nook, and joined in Top Ten Tuesday to share ten books that celebrate diversity. I wrote a discussion post on TBRs and I loved the comments that you all shared about the way that you manage your TBRs! I had never thought about heading to Goodreads to find my next book to read, but I was amazed that most of you do just that! My last post of the month was a library book haul -- my first one of these in a long, long time!
The Other StuffKnock on wood, but my car appears to be back to normal! Otherwise, most of July was spent just trying to stay cool -- it's been so insanely hot here! We even have water restrictions in place (no lawn watering, no washing cars, etc.) because there hasn't been enough rain. Let's just say that I am MORE than ready for fall to arrive. Anyone else feeling the same way?
What's happened in your life this past month? Do you hate car trouble as much as I do? Have you read anything interesting lately? Let's chat in the comments below, and thanks for stopping by!
