July 2020 Reading Recap

Happy Thursday!
Another month of reading has come & gone! So I don’t know how I did it, but I am so close to hitting my 50 book challenge (I swear I don’t read all the time anymore, only in the evenings & on weekends really) & it’s only halfway through the year!

So with July coming to an end, here is my July Reading Recap & current TBR list!

2020 Reading Challenge
– 47/50

Currently Reading:
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
Fitness Junkie by Lucy Skyes, Jo Piazza

Completed in July:

  • The Shark Club by Ann Kidd Taylor
  • The Girl Before by JP Delaney
  • Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed
  • Me Before You by Jojo Moyers
  • Beach Read by Emily Henry
  • The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis
  • Dear Martin by Nic Stone
  • When Katie Met Cassidy by Camille Perri

My Thoughts:

  • The Shark Club: OMG, I loved this book right from the start. It had not only a cute story line that didn’t end up with a predictable ending but also shared the importance of sharks & all that which I love cause sharks are like my favourite! But yeah so it was a great read & I would honestly read it again & again!
  • The Girl Before: So this was one addicting book. It was a little bit on the thriller side to but oh my goodness, I could not put it down! I didn’t sleep well while reading this but I mean it wasn’t too long of a book.
  • Love, Hate & Other Filters:  Despite being a total teen book, it was awesome. We got to know the main character & her family, & her life as a high school senior while dealing with racism, & prejudice in America. I think everyone should read this book. It’s short & more of a teen read, but it really helps you understand how minorities are affected & would definitely still stand true today!
  • Me Before You: I know I am so late to the game with this book, but I finally got a chance to read it & my goodness, honestly I am so glad I did. I don’t know about all you that have seen the movie but it had me in tears, so I thought I was prepared for this, but l clearly wasn’t. It was amazing & I can’t wait to read the second one!
  • Beach Read: So I devoured this book & read it in no time. I actually stayed up late reading since most of my reading was in the evenings but like this isn’t normal for me anymore. I loved it, it was not only a nice summery book, but we had so much more going on, I can’t quite get into the details without obviously giving things away but i would totally recommend this book to anyone right now!
  • The Summer Deal: This one took me a while to get into, but then it hit a little turning point & then it got a whole lot more addicting.
  • Dear Martin: I have no words. Everyone really should pick this book up because this book hits important topics about issues happening right now in our world. It offers a perspective from those who are facing racial injustice.
  • When Katie Met Cassidy: I can’t lie, I didn’t expect this to turn out the way it did but I also maybe didn’t read what the book was about before I read it. It wasn’t bad but I felt it just needed a little more, like what did Katie’s family do/react to her letter, all that stuff!

TBR List or as I like to call it the ‘what’s unread on my bookshelf list’:
