July Wrap-Up + August TBR

Last month I set myself 37 books to read I managed to complete 7 of them which include: My Soul to Save, The Crucible, The Zoo Story, If I Stay, OMG,Vampire Academy and Where She Went.
As I'm terrible at resisting books from friends and libraries, I also managed to read 2 books that were not originally on my TBR which include: The Hollow and The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
So my grand total for this month is 9 books which kind of sucks but...

I spent a great deal of my time this month, rearranging my bookcase rather than spending my time doing something useful like actually reading books, but this made me realise just how many books I actually own that I haven’t read which then led to me to thinking that there are going to be books that I own that I’m going to absolutely love, but there are also books I’m going to dislike. And so, this month I plan to read as many books off my bookshelves as I can so that I can make more room for the books I actually like, but also some new ones. So for the month of August, I plan to read 40 books in total.
