July Wrap Up

Hi Bookies!

tumblr_on3yjfrru31snnbgwo1_500

This month has been a very productive month for me. I managed to read 15 books in July! I’ll list the books, some stats about them, then the overall stats.

I apologize, this posted for some reason long before it was meant to. So I took that down. It wasn’t completed and was supposed to be saved as a draft. I don’t know what happened. Here’s the full and updated one.

Let’s just get into this!

    1. I’d say Through My Bedroom Window if you’re looking for some good quick smut, Caraval if you’re looking for a book that keeps you guessing, Sapphire if you want some good smut with an interesting suspense factor, or A List of Cages for a hard-hitter ❤
