July Stats

Looking Forward to August: I have already planned out my month and I'm super excited about what's on tap. I have some more Netgalley reviews coming, reviews of Supernaturally, Nightshade, and Wolfsbane, plus some less-publicized YA books. I'm going to keep reading and enjoying myself.  Of course, I also started my new job (!) so that will cut into my reading time. But it's totally worth it.

Looking Back at July: I participated in RedHouseBooks Netgalley July, reading 15 books. Unfortunately more than a few were not to my taste and I requested about as many as I read, meaning that my queue has not shrunk despite my good intentions. Oh, well-here's always Netgalley October!

I also attended my second book signing and hosted my first giveaway, which I think was a rousing success. Thanks to everyone who entered and who followed my blog-I hope to continue providing quality book-related content and I hope you stick around! Happy reading!
