July Wrap-Up!

I read a total of 12 books this month. I read a total of 4,349 pages. This month was a little better reading wise. I still started off the month really slow. I had to read mostly arcs to keep up with all the releases! Next month is insane and I’m trying to get a head start but I’m not doing so well. I have also realized that you can request Picture Books on Netgalley! Oliver is obsessed with books and we read so many. I have downloaded some over the last couple of days to read with him on here! It’s been so fun. I will be sprinkling in some Picture Book reviews from time to time. 🙂

I have completed 42 books for my PopSugar Challenge

I completed 37 books for my Beat the Backlist Challenge.

I also want to talk about a new monthly post I’ve created. It’s all about highlighting the Birthstone of the month with lovely book covers. Check it out here if you want to see more about it. Definitely join in next month if you think it looks fun! ❤ I’ve seen a couple people participate and it’s been so awesome to see! Thanks, guys! I’m honored you have jumped in! ❤

The Head and the Heart

I’ve loved this band for so long. I love their music! I’m loving “Every Shade of Blue” so much. Tiebreaker and Love We Make are also great!


I was in the middle of a “re-watch” for a few months. I finally finished and then.. I started it over!! I’m just in the mood for this and it’s been so great. I love this show and can’t recommend it enough! ❤

Chris and I just started this a couple of nights ago and we are obsessed!! We are half way through the first season.

I hope that everyone had a great July and I hope you have an amazing August!! ❤

    • Yes! I did actually! I know, I’m so excited. My kid is reading through books like crazy and I don’t know why I didn’t think of the Picture books being on NetGalley!


    • Thank you!! Haha, I totally get that. I almost didn’t do it this month and thought it would be a slippery slope and probably not do it again! lol. So nice of him to make them!! Mine offered to help but I didn’t know if he would do it right. I might make him help next month! lol

  1. Great post! I keep hearing about the book The Bodyguard. Is it any good? I just finished reading LA Weather. Really great book. I love Schitt’s Creek! And, omg, Only Murders in the Building is such a great show! It was one of my favorite new shows of last year! The new season is just as good as the first one!

    • Thank you! Yes, The Bodyguard is really good! I have a no spoiler- review, if you want to check it out. I read it really quickly because I couldn’t put it down! I am SO excited to hear that about Only Murders in the Building!! We have one episode left in the current season. I can’t wait… dying to know!! haha

  2. I LOVE Schitt’s Creek! Such a fantastic show! And I just started Only Murders in the Building too. So weird! I’m only on episode 2 though. lol You read so many good books in July – I hope you enjoy your August reads too!


  3. Great reading month! I’m so happy you enjoyed The Bodyguard! Oh, I loved Only Murders in the Building. I think I’m saving the second season for this fall and winter, though. And we’ve tried to watch Schitt’s Creek but couldn’t get into it. 😬 Maybe we need to give it more of a chance?? I think we got like 6 or 7 episodes in. I know so many people love it. Happy reading in August!

    • Thank you!! We just finished season one of Only Murders in the Building! It was so good. We actually switched to Sandman because we’ve seen so many people raving about it. IT really got us pumped to watch it.. we’ve read like half the graphic novels together and really excited anyways! Schitt’s Creek is kinda cringey in the first but I would definitely give it more of a shot! It’s so lovely to see where they all end up and seeing their journeys.<3 I hope you have a great August!!
