My Bookish Month of July 2019

Hello and welcome to my overview of the month July! Christ what a month! It started great with a week off work, and I got lots of reading and blogging stuff done, I went through a reading slump, I crawled out of said reading slump, I had a crazy week at work/home and major fatigue as a consequence, it was the hottest day ever and I was soooooo sluggish because of all the heat that I’m astonished I got any reading done at all, let alone any reviews! Still, I have now read and reviewed ALL OF MY NetGalley ARCs (!!!) and in related news: I’m 43 books ahead of schedule for my Goodreads challenge. Not bad at all!

Anyway, this was my bookish July, and here’s some of what I’ll be posting this month:

This month I also surfed the Positivity Wave, and then I surfed it again. I also shared an extract of The Last Stage.

That’s not too shabby I think, for a sluggish slumpy reading month ? But what was my book of the month??? I loved a few and Careless Whisper did come very close to winning, but in the end I chose the book that broke my heart:

Thanks for joining me! I hope you had a good month too and here’s to a new month of happy reading!
