We have already reached the end of July! It has come and gone in double quick time and I went through something of a writing slump, but I managed to fit in plenty of reading and that definitely made up for it!
So overall I finished nine books in July, which is more than I have ever read before in a month. After finishing off the buddy read I started in June, I went on a bit of a reading spree which ended in a challenging but incredibly fun 24-hour readathon last weekend.
I am now only five books away from successfully completing my Goodreads challenge for this year. That really is beyond all my wildest expectations – I thought my target of 45 was ambitious, but in 2018 I have embraced reading like never before.
But without further ado, here are the books I completed in July:

I spent a lot of time with my blog in July, but there was only room for one proper discussion post, about the significance of a synopsis:
As for my own writing, it was a tough month, as I took three weeks away from my work in progress and found it hard to get motivated, but this week I returned to it and so far things have picked up. Long may that continue!
I had a new magazine article to write, too, and I found that more difficult than normal. But hey, 2018 has been a very productive year of writing so far, so maybe the going had to get trickier at some stage.
And this wrap-up would not be complete without sharing two of my favourite posts from elsewhere in the book blogging community:
- Let’s Talk About…Family Values in YA by the amazing Kelly at Another Book in The Wall.
- Routines and Writing Everyday by Alexia at The Bookworm Daydreamer.
I think that is everything…hope you all have a wonderful August!
Happy reading 🙂
