July Wrap-Up!

Is anybody else freaking out just a little bit that it’s already AUGUST?!  Not only is summer flying by, but 2017 as a whole has been flying by faster than ever!  July is usually my best reading month, so I’m disappointed to say I only read 4 books.  However, 4 books isn’t terrible, by any means!

The Photo Traveler by Arthur J. Gonzalez \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Chasing Jupiter by Rachel Coker \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️



This month, I bought Where’d You Go, Bernadette and Illuminae at Books-A-Million.  They were both bargain books and only $5-6 each, so I’m pretty pleased!


I also bought the absolutely gorgeous Puffin in Bloom box set! 😍  It was nearly 50% off on Amazon, and I’ve had my eye on these books for quite a while, so I could not refuse!


I did the Mid-Year Book Freak Out book tag!

I also participated in the BookTube-A-Thon.  Check out my TBR and Wrap-Up!

That wraps up July!  I hope everyone enjoys the last few weeks of summer, and that everyone reaches their summer reading goals!!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I really need to finally read a Morgan Matson book. I think I have one or two of books sitting on my Kindle so I really have no excuse. And I absolutely LOVE that box set you got! It’s so pretty!!

    • I love Morgan Matson! You really should read one of her books when you get the chance. So far, I’ve read all of her books except Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, and I have loved them all. 😄

      Yes! I’m so happy to have gotten that box set, you have no idea (and especially that I didn’t have to pay $60 for it 😏)! 😍😄


  2. I love Morgan Matson and second chance summer! It’s def one of her sadder reads but beautiful, I need to go on a MM binge and reread all her books soon xD Score on that haul! HB of illuminae for $6?! Hope you’re having an awesome August so far ❤

    • Yes, Second Chance Summer is way sadder than her other books, but I still loved it! 😍 And I know!! I couldn’t believe I found Illuminae for so cheap. Books a million really has some amazing deals sometimes! I hope your August has been awesome so far too! I can’t believe how fast this month is going!!
