Monthly Wrap-up: July 2016

Well am I ever glad to see the month of July end. For me this past month was stressful and way too hot. Thankfully things are starting to look up and I am optimistic for the weeks to come. I don't really have anything to report other than that, so lets move on to my reading progress.

  1. 4 books is a great number Melissa :) And if you’re enjoying what you’re reading, that’s all that matters! Seeing you read Percy Jackson is making me want to reread the whole series XD. That’ll have to wait for after I’m done with uni though lol. Have fun reading your picks for next month. I hope you have an amazing August ^^

    1. Thank you Soudha! You are exactly right. Hope school is going well for you and that you have a wonderful August.

  2. I definitely want to read The Bookshop on the Corner - I am sort of hoping it might publish here in NZ and I might get a review copy, otherwise I'll be buying it! Happy to hear you really liked it.

    1. I hope you get a chance to read it. It was a nice book to read. Well worth buying in my opinion.
