June Wrap-Up and July TBR

This week, I’m linking up with the Sunday Post.  Go check it out!
I can’t believe June is over already.  That’s absolutely insane. 
But that also means that I have 50,000 books I wanted to read this summer and only two month left to read them.
As this goes up, I’ll be on vacation which is really exciting.  We always have a blast and it’s been a long year.

So, that also means, vacation TBR!  I have more books that I’ll probably actually read set aside to pack.  But, oh well.  

How many books did I read?

 Looking back to count all of the books I read, I almost couldn’t believe it.  I read 18 books this month.  18.  I had no idea I read that many!  I suppose my reading really did ramp up once school was over.  It’s double what I read in May. 

How do my ratings look this month?


I read so many amazing books that I’ve wanted to read for a long time.   
I read 4 five stars books which is amazing.  It always makes me happy to find new favorites!

I also got my first book from Netgalley.  I did enjoy it - really cool concept and really awesome world.  It's been a while since i've  read anything Sci-Fi, so it was really nice.  Inherit The Stars by Tessa Elwood comes out December 8th, so until then, you can check it out on Netgalley.  Review will probably be posted on Goodreads sometime soon, but blog review closer to release date. 

This month was also, apparently, the month of Sarah J. Maas.  So much love for the Throne of Glass series and I can't wait for Queen of Shadows!

So, how is my Goodreads goal doing?  Really great!   

I’m so happy that I was able to catch up on my goal this month!  Now, I’ll be able to keep up and hopefully even get ahead some. 

July/vacation TBR

I didn’t make a June TBR.  So, no negative news to report there.  I did finally read and review Vanishing Girls, though, which had been on my May TBR.  Success! 

Here are the books I’m hoping to read on vacation: 

I don’t know if I’ll get around to all of them, but I’m going to give it my best effort.
As for the rest of the month, I’d really like to read Cress by Marissa Meyer and ACOTAR by Sarah J. Maas.  (also, still the Winners Crime)  Really, anything by SJM.  Maybe I’ll have to take it on vacation with me. 

So, that was my month in review!  What about you?  Leave me a link to your May wrap up and June TBR.

  5. I'm terrible about packing books for vacation. I always bring about 15 too many because I'm scared of running out. My Kindle has saved me a bit more recently though. Hopefully you get lots of reading done and have a great vacation!

  6. JEEZ 73 books?! that's so amazing!! i'm still doing summer school so i don't have much time to read but i recently just read six of crows which i will rave about XD

    and yay, you don't have any one stars! that's some serious luck <3

  7. Lots of great books to read, my suitcase used to more full of books than clothes, then I bought my Kindle and now I have more clothes in it!!
