July Readathons Wrap Up

Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little bookish corner of the internet! Although I’ve already written my July Wrap Up, I wanted to come back and address the bookish adventures I went on because of July’s readathons, Path or Pantheon, and Olympic Games. Of course, I laid out my plans in advance, which you can read on those links, but plans change, and so do to be read lists.

July ended up being one of my most successful reading months all over, reading in total ? books, which I’m still impressed by, all things considered! I did stick to a lot of my TBR, but also changed a few things around to try and tick as many off as I could while still preparing for a lot of upcoming blog tours – sometimes even book bloggers have to be boring and practical!

So without further ado, here’s how I got on.

Path or Pantheon

The Name of the Star (Shades of London #1) – Paperback

Athena and her children are recognizable by their stormy eyes. Read a book with a grey cover
The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2)

So there we are! I still can’t get over how many books I managed to read throughout the month and I’m so pleased with what I managed with regard to these challenges. Although some of the answers to the prompts changed, I think it was a hugely successful month in total, and in regard to these challenges. If you took part in either or both, I’d love to know how you got on! Let me know in the comments.
