I went into July knowing it was a busy month for us and even knowing that, I had high hopes to read so many books. Those hopes were almost immediately crushed though. In actuality, I read a lot in the very beginning of the month and then again at the end of the month, but for most of July, I just didn’t read. Between the belated anniversary trip my husband and I took, both of the kids birthdays, and lots of projects I created for myself to get the kids ready for going back to school, I honestly didn’t feel like reading.
In July, I read 17 books which equaled out to 5,992 pages (this is missing one books page count as it is still recently released and didn’t have a page count listed). This equaled out to an average of 193.29 pages read each day. In the order in which I finished them, these are the books I read in July:
- Devil’s Pass Caroline Peckman and Susanne Valenti
- Wicked Promises S. Massery
- Model Behavior Kelsie Rae
- Forbidden Lyrics Kelsie Rae
- Gild Raven Kennedy
- Sinner’s Playground Caroline Peckman and Susanne Valenti
- Neon Gods Katee Robert
- Dead Man’s Isle Caroline Peckman and Susanne Valenti
- Carnival Hill Caroline Peckman and Susanne Valenti
- The Sweetest Oblivion Danielle Lori
- Wolf Penelope Black
- Rush Penelope Black
- Sully Penelope Black
- Gilded Princess Penelope Black
- Widow Maya Nicole
- Drive Me Wild Melanie Harlow
- Make Me Yours Melanie Harlow
Of the 17 books I read in July, 16 of them were part of a series (94.1%) and 1 was a standalones (5.9%).
When it comes down to intended audience for the books I read, all of them were adult books this month.
My ratings for July were unsurprisingly almost completely four stars. I had 1 three star books and 16 four star books, and __ five star books. My favorite book of July was definitely Neon Gods by Katee Robert.
I think at this point, I’ve realized my goal to read more of what I own is just not happening this year. I’m definitely enjoying what I’m reading though so I’m very much okay with that. When it comes to where I sourced the books I reading in July:
- Owned Digital: 1 (5.9%)
- Other: 1 (5.9%)
- Kindle Unlimited: 15 (88.2%)
Lastly, I like to look at genres.
- Contemporary: 14 (82.4%)
- Fantasy: 1 (5.9%)
- Paranormal: 2 (11.8%)
