July 2017 Book Haul, Wrap-Up and August TBR



Hi there! I hope you are all doing well :)


I cannot believe that July is over! It seriously was the fastest month I have ever lived through, lol! SO many things happening all around, my head feels like it's spinning... 

Pictured above is my new-to-me bookshelves and I am SO happy with them! I can happily gaze and swoon over so many of my books now without having to leave my room, lol! Do you see how big my Maggie Stiefvater and Lauren Oliver collections have grown? I am so proud of those... 
I attempted to do #BookTubeAThon this past week - I started out good with a TBR and I did 2 instagram challenges, and by Wednesday, I just wasn't in the mood to read anymore - why does that happen? Especially when I was expecting to read more than I usually do, etc... I'm such a dork, lol!

ALSO, I've been on a huge "Collect ALL the Classic Books" kick!
Do you have a classic book that you absolutely love??? 
Tell me - I may need to add it to my TBR too!

How was your July??? What did you read??? 
Did you join in BookTubeAThon too??? 
Let me know in the comments below ;) 

In the meantime, here are all the books I've read and accumulated throughout July :)

    1. I received and purchased more books than I normally do, will be going on a semi-book buying ban this month... maybe, lol! Thank you :)

  2. Your bookshelves are so pretty! And wow, you got so many books! I also got quite a lot of books in July, not sure how that happened as I distinctly remember saying I was going to go on a book buying ban. XD

    I participated in the booktubeathon and I managed to read 7 books which I'm SUPER happy with! I figured, as it's summer holidays, I should try to participate in a readathon before school starts up and I have no more time to read! I'm really glad I participated though as it hauled me out of the slump I was beginning to fall into! :)

    I hope you have a wonderful August and read a lot of good books! :)
