Hey everyone! It’s that time of the month again – I’ve drawn my cards for the books from my ‘backlist’ that I want to read in July. I won’t lie, so far June has been very slumpy. I’ve read two of the six books I pulled last month and while I’ve made progress on previous month’s picks, I’m still kind of grumpy with myself. So let’s just ignore that and go on to the July picks!
Introducing the new cat cards that I picked up! I of course still love my gem cards that I got from work, but I had to get these and immediately wanted to use them for these picks.
The cards were not very kind to me this month, we saw our first ace and I wanted to cry since that meant I had to read a book over 500 pages!
- Ten of Clubs – Ghost Stories – Ghosts of Salem
- Five of Diamonds – YA – Summer of Salt
- Ace of Diamonds – Over 500 Pages – Days of Blood and Starlight
- Four of Clubs – Mystery – The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter
- Eight of Spades – In Progress (meaning something I have started but put down) – A Dash of Trouble
- Kind of Clubs – Rich’s Stack of Five – Goblin
I had Rich pick a couple books to add to the stack of five because a couple had been removed. There will be some tweaking of the board next month as I removed a couple prompts that didn’t really fit my selection of books.
So there we have it, I’m really hoping I will be able to knock a good amount of these out as well as some of the previous ones. I recently got a number of audiobooks for the previous picks and am trying to get back into listening to them. Working from home I have found that I don’t listen to audiobooks as much as I do at the office (at the office I could easily knock out a couple books a day) because I have other options of things to listen to at home. Fingers crossed I fall back into them!
Have you read any of these? Happy reading!
