July Wrap Up

This month I was in the mood for a little steamy romance/smutty goodness, so I delved a little into that world and enjoyed what I encountered. I think because I was sick for the first few weeks of the month and I got into that weird little reading funk I didn’t want to have to focus too much on what I was reading and just picked something up that was easy and entertaining! Then in the last week of July the Reading Rush readathon was on and I managed to finish 7 books in that week. So overall July started off a little slumpy then as the month progressed I got my groove back and managed to have my best reading month so far this year… 21 books!

Overall Experience:

I had a great experience for the Reading Rush! I didn’t have a whole lot going on this week so I was able to get a good amount of reading in and managed to fit 7 books in 7 days. I read a total of 2734 pages over the course of the week and managed to finish a lot of books that I have been putting off for a while!

⭐️ 5/5 stars for The Reading Rush

June Wrap Up

I had a fantastic reading month, oh my goodness! Nothing below a 4 out of 5 stars. I don’t think that has happened to me since I started my blog so I am pretty stoked with my outcome for June! I think my not having a pre-established TBR was definitely a success and I feel I will be adopting that practice in the months to come because of how prolific my reading was. By far my best reading month I think ever…

April Wrap Up

I actually had a great reading month… I’m not quite sure how it happened but I deviated from my original TBR and actually read a lot more books than I was originally planning too and I’m not mad at it! I kind of listened a little more to my mood this month and read what I felt like reading instead of just solely sticking to my TBR and I feel like that approach really enabled me to read a lot more!
