Wrap Up: July 2017

Hey Guys,
Can you believe July is over already? July was such a busy month for me so I didn't read quite as much as I'd wanted to. I headed to London twice this month, one to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on stage which was absolutely incredible and then again for a 3 day book convention. It was utterly amazing.

Book Haul:

My book haul is absolutely enormous this month as not only did another Zoella book club round come out but I also gained so many books at the book convention. Due to this my book haul section is split into different sections this month:

2017 Challenges Update:

This year I am challenging myself to:
  • The Totally Doable 2017 Reading Challenge
  • The 2017 Debut Author Challenge
  • The 2017 'Continue a Series' Challenge
  • The Zoella Book Club Challenge

The Totally Doable 2017 Reading Challenge

I am so happy with my progress in this challenge so far this year. Like last month rather than selecting books for the categories I just read what I wanted and then saw if any of them fit.

This month I read one more for this challenge, which was start a new series. I read A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab, which is book 1 in the Shades of Magic series.

Challenge Total: 11/12

The 2017 Debut Author Challenge

This month I read No Filter by Orlagh Collins

Challenge Update: 4/5

The 2017 'Continue A Series' Challenge

This month I did finish a series, however it was a series that I started this year so I am not counting it towards my challenge.

Challenge Update: 3/5

The Zoella Bookclub Challenge

I didn't read any Zoella books this month. Her new round has now been released but I am not adding that to my challenge yet. I'm gonna try and read these ones first.

Challenge Update: 7/16
