It’s almost fall! I’m super excited about all the books I’ve been saving all year on my TBR pile to finally read! I’m a huge fall/spooky reading now and I can’t wait to unleash all of it this fall. I plan to read these books during the months of September and October (but might start a little bit in August because I have mad fall vibes fever). What do you plan on reading this fall?
I can’t believe July is already over with. July was a very good reading month for me as I finally came out of my reading slump and finished a few books! Here’s what I read for the month of July.
- Total Books Read: 3

Hello. Hi. Good day.
It’s been a hot second since I last wrote about the books that I’ve read on this page. But I’m hoping I broke this god awful reading slump I’ve been in for the past 7 months.
2020 was THE reading year for me (among other things). Then the pandemic hit and so did my reading slump. I’ve been consumed at work by taking on more jobs, less motivation in my free time, and a life slump hit all at once. But I’m not going to let that stop me!
Last week the Reading Rush happened and I once again participated. I haven’t really finished a book since April and I managed to finish a book I already started (Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley) and started and completed two comic volumes (Blossoms: 666 by Cullen Bunn and Jughead the Hunger VS Vampironica by Frank Tieri). I also started other books that I did not finish (Memories by Lang Leav and The Unleashed by Danielle Vega). This lead to me reading a total of 584 pages and completing 3 books.
My goals for the rest of July (haha let’s see since there are 4 days left) is to complete what I didn’t get to during the Reading Rush. This means I’m going to attempt to read around 10 books within the next four days. Whatever I don’t get accomplished will carry over into August. I feel like I finally have my reading mojo back and I can’t wait to read all the books again!
What are some books that have pulled you out of a reading slump?
Any who, back to reading I go! I have lots to get to before Midnight Sun gets released next week! See you soon for another bookish post!
Ugh. I’ve been sick. I’ve had allergies. But AT LAST, I finally feel better. And it’s wonderful to not have a Kleenex shoved up my nose 24/7. Last week I did not get a lot of reading done due to being sick and sleeping. Then over the weekend, I went to the Iowa State Fair for the first time ever which was a fun weekend adventure to get away from everything. I saw the cutest baby cow (pictured below), ate a bunch of fried food, and saw lots of animals. But now that my body is under control, I finally got to sit down and read for a half-hour tonight. And man did it feel refreshing. I got sucked back into Magnus Chase, which I’m enjoying at the moment. According to Goodreads, I’m only 34% complete with this book. This is a frustrating spot where I don’t want to be in for this month since it is the NEWTS readathon and I’m trying to get a lot of reading accomplished. But my plan for the rest of the week is to take care of myself, cook lots of homemade meals, exercise, and read to stay healthy and not fall back into a week of misery again! Below is the progress so far for this month.
It’s my favorite time of the year again the BookTubeAThon… wait hold the phone. Recently the BookTubeAThon has changed its name since last year to include everybody from all platforms and is now called The Reading Rush! I’ve participated in this readathon ever since it was started so to say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement. The past few years for this readathon I have been moving at this time so not much reading has taken place, but for once I’m not moving and I can’t wait to get home from work every day and read! In the video below is my TBR for The Reading Rush. What books do you plan to read?
Today I’m currently reading To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Going into this novel I was a bit hesitant. I felt like I was going into a reading slump all thanks to The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, so I felt like picking up a contemporary wouldn’t be a wise choice. I thought I would enjoy something fast paced, but To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before has a fast pace feel! The chapters are short and sweet and all of them are normally under ten pages long. Not only the chapters are short and sweet, but this book gives me a cotton candy feel. So far everything is light, fluffy, and adorable! I’m really enjoying this novel and I can’t wait to finish it!
