July Wrap-Up

July was a good and bad month for reading and blogging. As you probably heard I had a slight set back from typing and blogging due to a sprained thumb but I'm much better now! In case you missed anything on my blog or social media last month, this is what I got up to: 
READING

Books I Reviewed In July:

Sublime by Christina Lauren - I still can't stop thinking about this book and I'm not exactly sure whether I loved this book or was afraid of it.

Ruined by Amy Tintera - It was okay, but it wasn't really a stand out in a sea of YA Fantasy novels. 

Because of Lila by Abbi Glines - A new favorite by one of my favorite authors!

Trust by Kylie Scott - Absolutely loved the YA debut of another of my favorite authors!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber - finally finished listening to the audiobook but it was definitely worth it in the end! 

Riot by Jamie Shaw - back to a series I fell in love with last year. A great second book!

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald 

Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry - OMG why didn't I read this book sooner???

Chaos by Jamie Shaw - second favorite book in this quartet! 

Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry - review coming later this week!

BLOGGING
In July I participated in multiple cover reveals and release day blitzes as well as doing obviously a lot of book reviews and other posts for my blog. I've kept a heavy schedule, posting nearly once a day all month!

PUBLISHING
This month, I purchased the ISBN number for the print version of CurseBreaker, obtained the barcode, added CurseBreaker to Goodreads, and brainstormed some marketing ideas for pre-order incentives and more. Read my publishing timeline outline here.
