So July has come to and end. An exciting month and a bit of a tough month for reading haha. I had multiple job interviews, still hoping and waiting =]
You would think it was an easy month for reading with the #MakeMeRead It Read-A-Thon, but when that started Pokemon Go was launched. That resulted in me walking 65 km since and having a hard time finishing one book that week. Okay A Court of Mist and Fury is a big book hahaha…
So here is my Wrap-Up including the read-a-thon. I continued with my top results from the poll because I liked those books. I’m currently reading, and hoping to finish tonight [that will be tough with Formula 1 right now and Feyenoord playing a big game tonight], A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab.
Soundless was my longest read this month… I started reading this as a quick standalone before the read-a-thong started. I finished it a few days ago. I gave it 4 stars. My review will be coming shortly. It is planned as review #40, so keep your eyes out for it. ;] Rating: 4 quills.
Started: July 3
Finished: July 29
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown I read for the 4th time now. I will always love his work and be amazed of how trilling his books are. I’ve written my review of it, it will be review #60.
This book was a pre-read again before starting Inferno. I’ve had Inferno since day 1, but I wanted to read the other books about Robert Langdon before again. Rating: 5 quills.

So this was a day later, also tanning and relaxing under the summer sun. This was a quicker read, maybe because I had a good roll in this story =] The review is planned as #68. Rating: 5 quills.

How was your reading this month?
My August TBR.
So my augsut TBR will be a complicated one to plan… I got lots of digital copies from NetGalley I want to read and review. The #ReadThemAllThon starts on Sunday August 14th and will end on Sunday September 4th. So what to do what to do this month? I think I’ll start with a NetGalley copy.
A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet. NetGalley copy. I’m excited to read this one.
I got Between Two Thorns and A Little Knowledge by Emma Newman from NetGalley. I’m excited and will read this series completely in August.
I want to reaad the third book in the series of Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. I hope the summer will return and I can also read this one in my back yard while enjoying the sun.
This one was jsut granted to me trough NetGalley. I hope I can read and review it in time before the read-a-thon =]
I hope to have some time left befot the #ReamThemAllThon to read this beauty. I was so happy to be granted and ARC of this novel. To bad for living outside of the USA, so I got a digital copy trough NetGalley. But I’m still as excited to have gotten the chance to read this and review it before official release!!
I don’t know in which order I will read my #ReamThemAllThon books to earn the badges. For more information on which books I’ve chosen for this read-a-thon please use the link on the bottom of this post =]
