July Wrap Up

I’ve had a pretty great reading month in terms of quantity, the quality of the books were a little average though. There was a lot that I thought I would love that were just kind of ok. I participated in two readathons this month which went really well and I read a lot of books that have been on my radar now for a while so I am definitely satisfied with that!

RR-full-deeplilac

The 2020 round of The Reading Rush will be starting next week from Monday 20th – Sunday 26th July. I participated for the first time last year and really enjoyed this readathon, I found it to be an incredibly fun and inclusive with a great community vibe. To watch the announcement video and hear all the challenges click HERE. I am going to try my best to complete the seven books, but I know there are a couple of books on my TBR that can actually fit multiple prompts so I may end up doubling up on a few… we’ll see how I go!

The Prompts and my TBR for the Reading Rush is:
