July 2016 Wrap-Up and Challenge Update

Oh July oh quickly you came and went. I swear June was yesterday. Overall July was a good reading month for me! I read a ton of contemporary (the summer really puts me in the mood!) and I loved most of it. I also started binging Tessa Dare and predict I will be done with her back list before the end of the year. If you are hesitant to read historical romance, I reccomend Tessa Dare! I haven’t fallen in love with historical romance like I have her books. I plan on writing a whole post about it because she is an amazing writer and a lovely person!

All the books I read in July…

I also read Aftercare Instructions by Bonnie Pipkin (which I loved!) but doesn’t come out until 2017 and has no cover yet. 10 books is not bad for July since I have Comic Con craziness and Harry Potter craziness (at the store). I did squeeze Cursed Child in this month but that mostly has to do with the fact that it was under 300 pages and is written as a script. I may write a post about my feelings towards this book but not sure I have quite enough to say.

    I ordered my copy of Cursed Child over the weekend, so it should be arriving any day now! (fingers crossed!) I went back and forth for so long about reading it, but in the end I decided that I would l like to form my own opinion about it instead of just going off of what everyone else says.
    Happy August! 🙂

    Wow you are kicking butt at your challenges! I super loved The Anatomical Shape of A Heart, First & Then, and Romancing the Duke! I don’t read a lot of historical romance either but I’m being sucked in by Tessa Dare haha. Summer definitely makes me read more contemporary! I haven’t read the Cursed Child yet but I’m glad you enjoyed it. And I think 10 books is great, that’s usually what I average on a not-crazy month haha!
