July Monthly TBR & Challenge Updates

I started to get a little slumpy in June but I took it a little easy and picked up some easier reads and I think I'll be okay. I finished 6 books in June and DNF'd 1 but I will most likely pick it back up on audio later in the year to finish. In July, I want to read two of my upcoming Netgalley books and then I will be working on my OWLs in preparation for NEWTS in August. I am going to try and read from past TBRs and books that I have received in the later part of 2017 and in 2018.

My Tentative TBR for July:
  • Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge by Lisa Jensen
  • #MURDERTRENDING by Gretchen McNeil

My goal is to finish 10 series in 2018. I have a page that lists my current series: here.
Books read in a series this month: 2 (Every Heart a Doorway, Saga, Volume 1)
Series finished this month: 0 (x) - Total for 2018: 3
Series started this month: 1 (Saga) - Total for 2018: 7
Series tally: 41 + 1 - 0 = 42 series in the middle of

My goal is to read 40 books published before 2018. I don't necessarily have a list for this.
In June, I read 3 backlisted books: Every Heart a Doorway, Miss Fix-It, Saga. My total is 36 backlisted books read.
