Wow oh wow, July was one hell of a reading month for me! I’ve been seeing that everyone is slowing down in their reading, and even getting behind on their reading goals, but I’m ahead by 17 books currently!! Here’s everything that happened this month!

CITY OF LOST SOULS – CASSANDRA CLARE
Alas, I am nearly at the end of my Shadowhunters readathon, and I’m a little glad. This book dragged a bit in the middle but once I was past that it really picked up and I flew through it.
NEVERNIGHT – JAY KRISTOFF
I went into this so cautiously (I explain why in my review but in short, JK has done some things I highly disagree with) but the story was just so elegant and beautiful and it earned it’s rating of 5 stars.
I’M STILL READING!
The Half Drowned King
City of Heavenly Fire
The Kings Men
LET’S CHAT ABOUT JULY!
So the year is coming to an end in 5 months, that is an insane thought and to see myself being so close to hitting some reading goals (and so far away from others) is giving me mixed feelings. I don’t know if I will be reading alot of review books next month as most of my requested ones are september/october ones (pray for me guys, because there’s ALOT of them) so August might be a chance to get my TBR down, SPEAKING of that, I’m going to include how many physical books I own that I need to read each month a.k.a my physical TBR to maybe deter me from buying books I don’t need !
Total read this month: 18
Total read this year: 75
Current Goodreads goal: 100
Physical TBR: 88
Until next time,
