What I Read in July

Hello everyone,

Today's post is my July Wrap-up. I managed to read 42 books, granted most of them were graphic novels and manga. Because I have such a long list of books I am only going to give my star rating and I might have posts up later this month with mini-reviews for the novels that I read this month.

 I've also decided to divide this post into six sections, the first section are all the books I read before all the read-a-thons I took part in, the next four will be my wrap-up  for each read-a-thon, and then the sixth part will be an update of how I am doing with my TBR jar challenge so far. Here are the books that I read in July:

My Personal Read-a-thon (July 19th) Wrap-up:

I managed to read one whole book and 100 pages of another book during my personal read-a-thon which is pretty good considering I ended up being busier than I expected that day! The book that I completed was:

27. Matilda by Roald Dahl
5/5 Stars

And I read 100 pages of You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith

24 Hour-a-thon:
I decided to take part in this read-a-thon on a whim. I managed to finish two books I had already started before this read-a-thon.
The two books I finished were:

28. You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith
4/5 Stars

29. With You Always by Jody Hedlund
3.75/5 Stars

And the books that I read from start to finish are:

30. Shopping For Time by Carolyn Mahaney, Nicole Whitacre, Kristin Chesemore, and Janelle Bradshaw
4/5 Stars

31. The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl
4/5 Stars

32. The Twits by Roald Dahl
4/5 Stars

33. Esio Trot by Roald Dahl
4/5 Stars

24in48 Read-a-thon:
I didn't do a TBR for this one because it overlapped with the last few hours of the 24Hour-a-thon. The goal was to read for 24 hours within the span of 48 hours. Since I knew that I would not be able to hit the 24 hour goal, I decided to set a goal for myself of 12 hours which even then was pushing it. I managed to get  8 hours and 55 minutes of reading done that weekend.

34. George's Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl
4/5 Stars

35. Anne of Windy Poplars by L. M. Montgomery
4/5 Stars

36. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
4/5 Stars

BookTube-a-thon Wrap-Up:
I also took part in the BookTube-a-thon, which started right after the 24in48 Read-a-thon on July 24th and went through until the 30th. If you would like to see my TBR and the reading challenges click here.

 37. Wanderlost by Jen Malone
4/5 Stars

38. James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

39. The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl
4/5 Stars

40. The Vicar of Nibbleswicke by Roald Dahl

41. Lost at Sea by Bryan Lee O'Malley

And then the last two books I finished in July were:

42. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
4/5 Stars

43. Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
3/5 Stars

My TBR Jar Challenge Update:
At the beginning of the month I shared my TBR jar challenge. This month I managed to read seven books from it! I am hoping that next month I will be able to get almost as many books knocked off my TBR.

Happy Reading,
Janelle L.C.
