July TBR List + Upcoming Releases

In June, I read 5 books and am still on track with my Goodreads challenge - actually 1 book ahead. So that is super awesome! I made a mini-goal of reading 2 Owlcrate books, 1 book off my desk, and 2 Netgalley books. I read 3 Netgalleys and I'm currently reading an Owlcrate.
  1. I am working on reading my Owlcrate books. I have Roseblood, Caraval, Daughter of a Pirate King, The Upside of Unrequited, Eliza and Her Monsters, The Sandcastle Empire, and New World: Rising on that list too.
  2. The books on my desk I have: Dead in the Family, The Slippery Slope, This Savage Song, To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Simon Thorn and the Wolf's Den, and Aftercare Instructions.
  3. Netgalley books are on my need-to-read-like-last-year list. Last month, I reported having 70 books on my Netgalley list. This month, I'm starting with 70. I read 3 books but also added 3 to my list. :/ Whoops.
  4. I joined a new reading challenge: 20 Books of Summer. The premise is to read 20 books between 1 June and 3 September. 5 books down and 15 to go.
  5. I am participating in the 2017 Summer Bibibliothon and my goal is to read 4 books: the group book, Flame in the Mist by Renee Adieh, and then The Upside of Unrequited, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, and Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
Now that we're halfway through the year, I'm hoping to pick up speed and get to accomplishing some of these challenge goals. So here I'm noting my progress...

Goodreads Challenge: 26/52 books SLIGHTLY AHEAD
ABC Challenge: 12/26 books SLIGHTLY BEHIND
Travel Gnome Challenge: 16/23 books AHEAD!
Series Challenge: 0/10 series WAY BEHIND
Movie Adaptation Challenge: 0/3 books BEHIND
