July Wrap Up

If you ever fall into a reading slump, do two 12-14 hour train journeys on your own and you’ll read out of sheer boredom if nothing else. That said, I read some really good books this month and some that have been on my TBR for a very long time. It was a good reading month, in terms of both quality and quantity. The readathons I took part in were really fun and I’m glad I did them (even if they all seemed to overlap).

Favourite Book

This is so hard this month (which is always good). If I was going to have to say only one book, I would say The Hate U Give because it is one book that completely lived up to the hype for me and that was hard considering just how much hype was surrounding this book. Contenders included The Wall of Winnipeg and Me, Uprooted, If I Was Your Girl, Before I Fall and The Hating Game. It was a good reading month.

Least Favourite Book

Easy. Taking Shots, the first book in the Assassins series. I have a high tolerance for ridiculous tropes in romance books, that is half the reason you read them after all, but never have I hated an ending of a book more.

Reading Updates

I read six ARCs this month (and I really need to go and give feedback on NetGalley), I took part in three readathons this month. BookTubeAThon and Fairyathon are finished (wrap ups to follow), and Read Your E-reader Readathon is still ongoing. I’ve completed my Goodreads reading challenge, Flights of Fantasy and my Mount TBR. I’m still working on my Diversity Bingo square as well as a few other summer reading challenges.

    1. 😀 Trust me, the amount of times I’ve been on plane/bus/train during the month of July, 40 isn’t that surprising. It’ll probably die down by the time I get home and stop travelling but at least I’m making a dent in my TBR.
