July 2019 Wrap Up

 

I had quite a few things going on in July, so I’m kind of surprised I finished as many books as I did.  I definitely found some new favorites, too.

Top Ten Tuesday 7/30/19

 

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.   You can find each week’s topic on her site.

 

This week was a freebie and I didn’t plan anything out.  But I decided to try something at the last minute.  I won’t have details for the books because I didn’t schedule this ahead of time.

 

I’m going with Top Ten ARCs I still need to read.  These are ones I already have even though I’ll get more before the year is over.

I’m a new affiliate for Book of the Month YA. July Book choices.

 

I was recently contacted to become an affiliate for Book Of The Month YA.  Since I’ve heard nothing but good things about BOTM, I decided to give it a try.  Please note that this is not a website for Book of the Month.  I’m just promoting it.  You can follow the link below which will take you to the site.

 

I will be posting around once a month and the posts will always include my affiliate link.  Please know that I do get a commission for every new sign up using my link.  So thank you in advance to anyone who gives it a try.

Most Anticipated July 2019 YA Releases

 

I have to be honest.  I’m really glad that July is a bit of a slower month for book releases.  I feel like so many books came out from April through June and I need to catch up (like that ever happens).

 

As always, this isn’t a full list of books coming out.  They are either ones I’m most looking forward to or ones that seem to be pretty popular already.
