Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2010

July: freedom, Sims 3, lack of reading, sickness, happiness, stress, relief. July was an odd month. It went far too quickly. I had something in my hands to read every day...and yet look at the abysmal effort on my part. Four book. Four. I pride myself on reading a book a day and in 31 days...I read four.

I am contemplating a read-a-thon, I am not currently working (yeay!) and am currently sick, which means confinement and lack of requirement to do anything. Although the drugs do make me a little drowsy...I can still deal. So in the next couple of days we may be seeing a 48 hour read-a-thon.

My Favourite book for the month would have to be: White Cat by Holly Black


In July I read 4 books.

  • Stray - Rachel Vincent 
  • Blood Song - Cat Adams
  • White Cat - Holly Black
  • Forbidden - Tabitha Suzuma

I reviewed 6 books.


I am setting myself a personal goal in August, READ MORE. For some reason my ablity to fly through books is failing, probably with the reintroduction of computer games into my life once again.

My TBR Pile at the start of the month was 1,013 At the end of the month it is 1,037 - might have to do another cull soon.
