In July I read a total of 12 books, including 7 physical books and 5 audiobooks. The month started off strong and I had a ton of books I hoped to get through before my summer break ended, but exactly halfway through July I experienced a very unexpected life change and I could no longer focus on reading. Here’s hoping that August turns out better.

2020 READING GOAL PROGRESS
At the beginning of the year, I shared my 2020 reading goals. When I post my wrap up at the end of each month, I also want to reflect on the progress I’m making toward reaching my goals.
Read 100 books: 98/100
Explore more genres: horror & literary fiction
Buy fewer books: I think I only bought one new series set
Finish more series: I finally finished Throne of Glass!!! And I almost made it through the whole Twilight series.
Reread more: Twilight series & An Ember in the Ashes (I haven’t read the rest of the series yet)
Read at least two classics: 1/2 (none this month)
Read one graphic novel each month: Squirrel Girl
I really thought I would surpass my goal of reading 100 books in July, but it just didn’t happen for me. I read a ton of books in the first half of the month, but there were quite a few other books I expected to get through in July, and now I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by my TBR and ARCs. However, I am doing the best I can right now, and that’s all that I can do.
How did your month go? What was the best book you read in July?
