July 2020 Wrap Up

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?

  1. Love the diversity of the books you read, I have Saving Ruby for later this month, and I must agree with you about The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires it didn’t work for me either. But I really enjoyed Take a Hint, Dani Brown. 😀

    Have a wonderful weekend Caroline!!!
