TBR goal of July 2020

People, it’s July! Can you believe it? I certainly can’t.

For me, July is the month when summer actually starts so what can I say now? Happy summer!

Hope everyone is good and spends a shit-load of unhealty time to read amazing books.

June 2020 was for me a month full of romance because I read a lot (more than I care to admit) of good-enough contemporary romance to last for at least half a year (but I am already planning on reading some more so I guess it wasn’t enough for me? Oh well).

Aside from that, I also managed to finish Sadie by Courtney Summers and Vicious by V.E. Schwab, both of which were on my previous month TBR goal so I guess I can say that I reached the goal I set. Yay! (Btw, Vicious? A gem, I recommend). I also managed to squeeze in some nonfiction by reading Ms Chimamanda Adichie’s Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions and another two cute rom-coms, Love’s Recipe by Mila Nicks and The Trouble with Hating You by Sajni Patel.

With that, I declare my June 2020 a bookish success!

Now, for this month I plan on finishing the three books I’ve already started. So, here they are:

The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow

Why do I want to read this book:

  • I’ve been approved an ARC and I am so excited!
  • This is a book about witches. I am never going to pass the opportunity to read about witches. I live for books about witches;
  • The cover is so super pretty, just look at it!
  • I’ve heard so much about Alix E. Harrow and even though I have another book of hers on my TBR, I haven’t got the chance to read it so this is going to be me doing this woman justice and reading one of her books;
  • I am genuinely excited about this book, I don’t know how to explain it.

The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien

Why do I want to read this book:

  • I think it’s been too long for me to go without at least giving this a fair shot; I mean, I saw the films but I want the experience to be complete;
  • I’ve been seeing so many people (re)reading this lately so I think there must be something in the air;
  • I found all three LOTR books on a sale so I impulse-bought them, now I am forced to read them I guess πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ;
  • I am genuinely interested to see how rich this world is; I mean, I am talking about fantasy and magical objects and all sorts of fabulous places and people. I want it all;
  • I think I will never be too old to read this (I think the same about HP anyway) so this is why at age 22 I am picking this up once and or good and read it like the child in me wants me to read it.

Head Over Heels by Hannah Orenstein

Why do I want to read this book:

  • I AM OBSESSED WITH GYMNASTICS; so, obvy, this is the main reason I picked this up;
  • I’ve been obsessed with rom-coms too lately so there is another bonus to it;
  • I really feel like tearing up just thinking that there is this amazing book about this amazing sport and about love and mental health and everything that is ugly but beautiful at the same time;
  • I also think the cover is super cute;
  • Did I mention that I am obsessed with gymnastics and I am willing to eat up every single detail about every single time a character here is pointing their toes?

With that being said, let’s make this July goal happening!

What about you? Anything interesting planned for reading this month? Just let me know! 😁

  1. Haha summer starts for you in July, here it hasn’t stopped raining since the last three days, plus it’s so cold all the time! I was actually planning to re-read Emma by Jane Austin, because I loved it so much the first time i read itπŸ’•

    1. Omg I would kill for a bit of rain now even thought it rained in June here almost every day! I haven’t read Emma yet (I know, shocker, it’s a classic!) but I hope you enjoy your re-reading! Maybe a cup of good tea or golden milk will be a nice companion for re-reading Emma!
