Wrap-Ups

July Reading Wrap-Up

Goodbye July, I can’t believe that you’re already gone! The beginning of the month seems so far ago, but somehow the month is over just like that! I went through a slump mid month, but picked up after that just fine! I think I hit a new Allison record this month! Stick with me and take a peek at the books I enjoyed this month!

Statistics

  • Books Read: 15
  • Pages Read: 5,985
  • Genres Read: Young adult, adult, new adult, contemporary, fantasy, romance,

Rereads First!

Only one reread this month! This was my fifth time reading ACOMAF and it’s still 5 stars for me! This will be seen many more times!

Newbies

5/5 stars. Absolutely a must read. Heart-wrenchingly relevant to what’s going on in 2020.
5/5 stars. Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors. This book is a great look at life through a mother/daughter perspective.

5/5 Stars: Fun, light romance novel with compelling characters!
5/5 Stars: This was BEAUTIFULLY written. Highly recommend.
4/5 Stars: The words in this story were entrancing and absolutely stunning. (Thank you NetGalley for providing an eARC in return for an honest review).
2/5 stars: Extremely problematic for me (see review/video for full thoughts).
4/5 Stars: Loved, loved, loved this book. Some questionable material, but still enjoyable!
3/5 Stars: Writing was a bit hard to follow, as was the story. The main character wasn’t enjoyable, but the premise of the story was good. Thank you NetGalley for providing an eARC for honest review.
First book was a 3/5 stars but the rest were 4/5! This was a compelling series to read and I really enjoyed the characters; especially Rose, Dimitri, and Adrian. I’ll be doing a full review on these soon!

Other Highlights of the Month

  • Started organizing my craft room into a library as well! I bought two new shelves and cleared ones I already had (And used for something else).
  • I got two Sarah J Maas autographed books!
  • I discovered there are a series of used book stores about an hour away from here and am going to plan a road trip!
  • I bought 14 books for $40 at the used book store in town!
  • I joined some monthly book subscription boxes.
  • I scored some Alice Clayton signed books on ebay, as well as a signed copy of Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles (my second favorite book).
  • I only fangirled about SJM books multiple times a day…oops. Sorry not sorry!

  1. Wonderful reading month Allison!!! Just found your blog, and love how many books we already have in common. 😊

    I fell in love with Regretting You, loved it so much 💕, same with THUG – a definite MUST READ!!! Also I have The Black Flamingo on my tbr for this month or September.
    I’m actually listening to One To Watch at the moment, almost done with it, and will check out your review.
