2017 Monthly Status Update: July


July was a fairly productive month for me, I got a good amount of reading done and some good Blog Tour posts. I also started a new workout program which I have been trying to stick with and its been working well for me to help me manage my time as well. I’m looking forward to using a couple vacations to catch up on my reading! So below is my progress for July:

Status of 2017 Reading Challenges:

  1. Finish 2016 ARC’s from NetGalley that I missed – Haven’t read any since last month so still have 27 to go
  2. Participate in 2 reading challenges – During May I participated in the Bout of Books challenge. Next one is scheduled for August (this coming month)
  3. Other goals:
    1. Write shorter reviews – I think I’m doing better at this, this past month I was able to get out a few shorter ones
    2. Continue establishing relationships – I think I’m doing it, we’ll see how it goes I guess!

Next Month TBR List:

I read all but one of the books on my TBR from last month, which was great. I’m trying to be ambitious for this next month with the ARC August and the vacation I have coming up. Might not get to all of these but hopefully will get to most!!
