Monthly Wrap-up: July & August TBR

I can’t believe that July is already over. I turned a year older during the month and in terms of reading, it was fairly okay. I  read 11 books and reviewed 10 of them.

Here are the books that I read during the month:

The Chosen Child by Linda Huber-4.5 stars

Click on the titles to read my reviews of the next ten books.

Blogging update: I posted 19 posts this month which included 10 book reviews, a monthly wrap-up post and weekly features (Top Ten Tuesday, WWW Wednesday and Friday Finds). Unfortunately, my stats are lower than they have been in a while so I am not sure what’s up with that.

August TBR plus personal update

August is likely to be a very busy month for me. I have a number of meetings at work starting this week. I am in charge of planning for these meetings and so they tend to be very engaging for me. At school, my semester ends this month with a number of term papers, assignments and exams. This means that I may not be in a position to read and blog as much as I usually do. However, if I get the chance then I do hope to read the following books in August:

I hope that you had a wonderful July. Have a superb new month.

      Thanks Yvo, I do hope that you will enjoy it. It was my first amnesiac thriller, I guess that is part of the reason as to why I liked it so much. Happy reading to you too:-)

        If you liked the theme, Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson is also a great read. 🙂 I can’t wait to continue reading The Girl From The Sea now!

    Isn’t annoying when stupid work/school/real life get in the way of reading?? I feel your pain. Good luck finding the time for pleasure reading! May the Force be with you!

      haha thanks Michael:-) Happy reading!

  5. All of these books look so dark and mysterious from looking at their covers. Ten reviews in July is really awesome. I hope you get a chance to pick up the titles you mentioned in August and good luck with your exams and term papers!

    Congrats Dee. I admire your passion. I have a question, what’s happening to me? Nowadays i can’t even manage two books a month! or is it coz i keep drifting away to worlds where the characters exist, trying to interact with them there, trying to get into the writer’s mind and understand why he/she chose those particular characters for the narrative!

    Is that even normal??????? I love your book reviews!
