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!

🎲Becca’s Bookopoly Readathon🎲

I made the last minute decision about three hours already into the readathon to participate, which is pretty much how I roll. For all the information about the Readathon see Becca’s announcement video HERE. I have been watching her Bookopoly TBR videos pretty much since she started them so I was only too happy to participate in the first round! I knew I wouldn’t be able to complete all 8 of the prompts but I am happy I did end up finishing four books which was pretty much the overall goal.

The first prompt I chose was the Chance card pick from the 2020 board
