How is July over already? I started the month with a two-week vacation…that’s probably why it feels like it just started. Vacations do that, don’t they? They make time pass in a strange blur, during which you’re not aware that time is passing. You don’t pay attention to the date or even to what day of the week it is. All you are aware of is the bliss of pool days, beach days, driving days, and walking the aisles of Target (because you are finally in a country that still has Target)…Or maybe that last one is just me.

Any way, here’s my July Wrap Up and Haul. I read 8 books in July. I also picked up a few at a rad used bookstore in Kona, Hawaii. I managed to partially stick to my used bookstore strategy and my used bookstore shopping list.

What was in my July 2017 book haul?

I held myself back and only bought four books at the shop. I had already brought six print books and my kobo with me on the trip and figured I should be able to fit four more books in my suitcase. It was overweight on the flight home.

My four new books from Kona Bay Books.

I also downloaded a few audiobooks for my commute and lunchtime walks.

What did I read in July?

At the end of July, I’ve read 52 books in 2017 . That puts me 69% of the way to my goal of 75 books in 2017.

In case you missed it

July was a slow month for trishajennreads. I’d planned to have two or three posts a week scheduled for while I was away. But alas, June was full of busyness and that didn’t happen. But, we did have a few interesting posts.

Book Reviews included

I tried out a lifestyle post to see if I want to expand my post categories and wrote about my obsession with floral patterns on clothing, stationary, and book covers.

And, I rambled about The Thorn of Emberlain and The Gentleman Bastards Sequence. If you haven’t started reading this series, I highly recommend it. If you have someone in your life who thinks reading is boring, this is a fab series that proves otherwise. Both my husband and I love it. (It’s really fun to have a book series that you and your significant other love, it leads to great conversations!)

July saw only one post about WWW Wednesday. Here’s hoping August will have a few more.
