Well I ended up reading 22 books this month! I feel a bit sluggish and am excited that Halloween Bingo 2017 is happening right now. I need some new material. I had a lot of 5 and 3 star books this month.

I honestly did not get a chance to read that many books. I had a lot of work commitments and not too many things spoke to me. 

 

I read 27 books for the month of July. One of those was a DNF though. I have to start setting aside books I don't enjoy. It's kind of a pain to force read something that you are feeling meh about.

Books I Read This Month (June 2017)

Image result for june

 

More than at the halfway point fellow readers! Are you close to your reading goal or have you surpassed it?

As of today I have read 216 books and am 51 books ahead of schedule. My goal for this year is to read 337 books. I am off all next week so I am looking forward to some prime reading time. You will be sick of all the updates I will be throwing your way. I promise you.

 

I only read 17 books this month due to job pressures. Thank goodness the report I was working on went out today. I have never been so tired in my life. Everyone keeps yelling at me to go home and have a Happy 4th. But I wanted to get this post and another one out to you all.

Books I Read This Month (May 2017)
The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas
Always and Forever, Lara Jean - Jenny Han
Solitude Creek (Kathryn Dance) - Jeffery Deaver

Hope everyone had a great reading month!

At this point I am almost at the 59 percent mark for my reading goal for the year! At this point in time I have read 199 books/comics/graphic novels.


 

This month I read 46 books. Believe me that is all due to me going on vacation to Ecuador. 

 

My favorite book for the month of May was "The Hate U Give". Seriously, go read it. It's really good. A close runner up was "Always and Forever, Lara Jean." My least favorite book was "Solitude Creek." I am still mad I wasted my time on that series.

Books I Read This Month (April 2017)
Dreamland - Sarah Dessen
The Collapsing Empire - John Scalzi

Hope everyone had a great reading month!

At this point I am almost at the 50 percent mark for my reading goal for the year! I plan on reading at least 337 books. At this point in time I have read 155 books/comics/graphic novels.


This year I went easier on myself and am not doing that many challenges. Last year got a bit too much for me.

 

This month I read 29 books.

 

I honestly did not read a book that really knocked my socks off this month. I am just going to go with "Dreamland" though since it is a book I can see myself re-reading in the future (which is what makes a book 5 stars to me).

 

My least favorite book was "The Collapsing Empire". I got burned so badly by some of the new releases this past month that have been getting tons of hype. Between this one and "The Bone Witch" I am going to make sure that all other new releases I get, that I try to obtain them from the library first.
