Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2018

2018 Reading Challenge

Books read in July: 12

Books read in 2018: 109/150

I had been tracking the children’s books ARCs I’d been reading all year, and decided I didn’t like counting children’s books in my number of books read. SO! Edited my dates read in Goodreads to get an accurate snapshot of how many middle-grade and above books I’ve read this year. πŸ˜‰


The Ripped Bodice’s 2nd Annual Summer Romance Bingo runs from June 1 to August 31

Each square represents a book you’ve read this summer, and you fill in the square with the title & author once you’ve met the criteria. To get a bingo you need to get 5 in a row (vertical or horizontal) and for each row you complete you can enter to win prizes atΒ

      1. I don't include picture books in my total for reading either but that's about it – I'll put anything else on there (graphic novels, novellas, etc.) Great job on all you've read so far this year though. That's still a lot!


      2. I LOVE IT! Some of the categories are really hard, though, like \”Carriage Sex\” or \”Here Smells Like MAN\” where you don't know if a book will have it in there until you've actually read that bit.


      3. It DOES feel like cheating!! Plus, I had to keep changing my goal of total books read higher and higher. I don't count them for any of my other challenges, so I decided not to count them as part of my total books read. (Which is a pity, or I'd be DONE with the dang alphabet challenge by now… LOL)
