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!
