July 2016 Recap

Considering how little I've read this month is great realizing ALL the book belong in the favorite's pile but frankly it's no wonder.. As I started removing books from my list (July Goals) due to time running short I left the ones I was the most excited about. 

Total Read - 7 ebooks / 1783 pages (~58 pages a day)

Not as I would like my statistics to be, but I it's better than last month, and next month I'll be studying less so I'll be back to business enjoying my reads more freely.

So basically, everything I've read this month have been a favorite.

I started this month with the second installment in the "True North" series by Sarina Bowen - "Steadfast", while I had a few misgivings about the previous one, this one was EXACTLY what I would expect from Sarina to deliver - a touching story, a hero who is a hero exactly or despite being NOT your regular "hero" type - dealing with past mistakes and his drug addiction. 

Continued to "What Remains", a standalone novel by Garrett Leigh who is also one of my favorite authors. This one, yeah, I wasn't ready for it.. I don't really read the synopsis of her books, maybe right before I delve into them, and so I haven't realized I'm going to be crushed one hounded times before the story was over. Well, it's exactly Garrett's style so I'm not sure why I was so surprised! and yet, seeing a couple struggle with learning to love each other again due to head trauma leading to memory loss was heart breakingly beautiful.

and you know what I actually had another read of a hero suffering from memory loss in the third installment in the "Returning Home" series by Serena Bell - "To Have and to Hold" which was also the last book I've read this month. Though similarities can be drawn from the subject, they were totally and absolutely different. 

I even managed to read a short series this month, the second "sub-series" in the "Blueberry Lane" world by Katy Regnery - "The Winslow Brothers". I enjoyed these as much as I enjoyed the previous part of the Blueberry Lane series, though these ones felt more emotional which I really enjoyed! "The English Brothers" being more of a fun read dealing with less complicated stuff. I love me some romantic drama :)

That's if for this month reads, I had a really busy month, haven't read at least a whole week, and since I study twice a week, these are days I don't have time or energy to read at all.. I promised myself and also delivered through my registration for the following year - no more! once a week studying, and yeah, naturally my exercise routine but nothing major. I want to enjoy myself and not stress myself this year.
