June & July Wrap Up

August 3, 2014 wrap up 6

June and July 2014

It’s August already? How did this even happen?! I didn’t post my wrap up in June because I was so busy in July and didn’t want to half ass it because I love doing these wrap ups so here is a two month review 😛

June was SOOO busy so of course I didn’t get a lot of reading done. The most exciting thing that happened in both months was that my sister came to visit. I haven’t seen her in two freaking years so it was THRILLING. We shopped and lazed around, decorated my house a bit and just had fun. I miss her

Other than that, I’ve just been busy working, decorating and unpacking/organizing and that is basically my life. Luckily I am back to reading at my normal pace which is fantastic so I hope to keep that up for the remainder of the year.

Honestly, I have nothing to chitchat about, haha, so on to the wrap up …

Challenges

Goodreads Challenge: I have read 47/100 books for my challenge. I’m 10 books behind. I don’t feel great about this but what can I do? My reading decreased significantly due to moving, visitors, LIFE … so hopefully I can get this completed for 2014! *shrugs*

2014 Debut Author Challenge: I accomplished nothing in two months. Fail :/

2014 TBR Pile Challenge: YES! I read something from my TBR finally: Descendant! And I loved it so that just goes to show there are books that I NEED to get to!

2014 Review Pile Reading Challenge: I’m making fantastic progress on this challenge. 7 out of the 10 books read were review copies, whoop!

2014 Series Challenge: Nothing really here because I didn’t complete any, but I’m making progress with some series so hopefully there will be some numbers against this challenge soon.

2014 Prequel and Sequel Challenge: Also making progress here as well, in fact I am almost complete 🙂 YAYYY!!!

Notable Posts & Events

I posted my picks in the Countdown Survey hosted by Christy’s Book Addiction. It was so fun doing it … I always love making bookish lists <3

I participated in quite a few Top Ten Tuesday’s: Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year, Books On My Summer TBR, Favorite TV Shows, and Authors I Own The Most Books From.

I posted my review for The Art of Lainey which I ADORED. I cannot speak enough about this book really, it’s definitely one of my favorites of 2014. Took me totally by surprise, and one that I was actually not even going to READ! Ah, the thought hurts me!!

I got an absolute ton of books… June 01st, June 21st, July 05th, and July 19th.

      Wrap ups are fun, they are probably one of my favorite post types 🙂 I will still continue to do stacking the shelves because if I added books to my wrap up that would just get crazy but I will be doing these wrap ups for a while to come I think 🙂 I hope you do the wrap ups too Bieke, I love reading them!!!
