Monthly Wrap-Up – July 2018

Hello everyone,

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:

Writing 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:

I think that is everything…hope you all have a wonderful August!

Happy reading 🙂

  1. Well done for reading 9 books this month! I’ve only read An Abundance of Katherines from that list and I’d love to hear what you thought about it!

    1. Thank you! An Abundance of Katherines was an enjoyable, funny and quick read, though the ending was predictable.
      I love reading John Green’s books and his writing style, they are like a kind of escapism from other books I read!
