What I Read in July, and Why I Failed

What I Read in July
July is officially over, and with that, comes another July wrap up. July was a pathetic reading month for me. It probably was one of the worst reading months I’ve had in years. Before the BookTubeAThon started, I only read 2 books this month. That is unacceptable in my eyes. I think July was just not a good month for me overall, and it really showed in my reading. As of right now, I was able to read 3 books in the past two days because of the readathon, but without that, this month of reading was just laughable.

Here is what I read in July:
1. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey: 3.5/5
2. Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson: 4/5
3. Nostalgia by M. G. Vassanji: 4/5
4. Ariel by Sylvia Plath: 5/5
5. A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf: 5/5

I’m glad I was still able to finish 5 books this month, but the fact I didn’t gravitate towards reading most of the month is sad to me. I can already tell that the readathon is helping me a lot in my reading. I have been behind on my reading goal, and I needed this challenge to refocus on my love of reading. I’m also in a better mood recently, so I’m hoping after such a disastrous reading month, I can have an excellent one in August.

What did you read this month? Let me know in the comments!

    I’ve had a similar slow reading month to you as well! But the Booktubeathon came along and has been a great motivator to read! I’ve read more in 2 days than really this whole month! Still, I think you did great! Happy reading! 😊
