{Monthly Recap} – July

monthly recap

July was a really great reading month for me – 8 books!  In the same week, I received the two books I was most looking forward to reading in 2014 – and they were fantastic, surpassing all of my expectations.  Both definitely top my list of favorite reads for 2014.  I also reached my goal for the Summer Reading Program challenge!  It was a small goal, but that’s okay – I’m just glad I accomplished it.

Books I Read:

Love, in English by Karina Halle (Review)

Nash by Jay Crownover

Happenstance by Jamie McGuire (Review)

Landline by Rainbow Rowell (Review)

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover (Review)

Mean Streak by Sandra Brown (Review)

Up at Butternut Lake by Mary McNear

You by Caroline Kepnes

My Favorite Books of the Month:

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

I couldn’t pick just one – they both deserve equal recognition because they were amazing!

Books Read in July: 8

Books Read in 2014: 42

Things I’m looking forward to in August:

I never seem to read any of the books I think I’m going to read in the next month.  In fact, looking at my June Recap post, I only read one of the books I said was on my radar!  There’s that moody reader thing coming into play. Here are a few books I really want to read soon.  Maybe my goal for August should be to read at least 2 of these books, which will be better than I did last month!

And I’m really excited that Isla releases in 2 weeks!



What’s on your radar for August?
