August TBR List + Upcoming Releases

In July, I read 8 books and I am 5 books ahead of my Goodreads challenge! The furtherest ahead I have been this year so far and I could not be happier. I'm doing my post in a different set up because it looked overwhelming in bullets with so many books. So I'll talk about the mini challenge I did in July (like the one in June), list my Owlcrate and Books on my Desk, and quickly go over where I stand on my Netgalley books. Then as always, there are the main challenges I'm doing this year.

Read 2 Owlcrate books (3/2)
Read 2 Netgalley books (1/2)
Read 1 book off my desk (2/1)

Roseblood, Caraval, Daughter of a Pirate King, The Sandcastle Empire, New World: Rising, and the Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

I started July with 70 books and read 1 book, DNF'd 1 book, and added 1 book. So August starts out at 69 books.

The Slippery Slope, This Savage Song, To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Simon Thorn and the Wolf's Den (currently reading), Dead Reckoning, and Illuminae
