In July I read 14 books.


  • There were 2 male authors and 9 unique female authors.
  • There were 3 Indian authors and the rest were white.

About the books

  • 3 were audio books
  • 8 were fantasy
  • Only 1 was nonfiction


  • United States – Virginia, New York, California, Minnesota
  • India
  • England
  • A made up Middle Eastern country
  • Fantasy lands

Overall it was a pretty good reading month.  I have good feelings about each of those books (with only a few complaints.)  If I had to pick, I’d say nope can’t do it.  I’ve rewritten that sentence a few times with different books I can’t settle on an answer.

My most popular bookstagram picture this month was:

I’m sort of proud of this one taken to represent Goblet of Fire.

Bookish Adventures

I went to the Library of Congress, which was amazing.

I also went to a Harry Potter festival that was ultimately disappointing because of the crowd was HUGE and you couldn’t see anything.

  1. That Goblet of Fire picture is amazing! I’m sorry the festival was disappointing though – hopefully your next bookish adventures will be better!

  2. I stalk your Instagram photos on Twitter (like you may have not noticed 😉 ), and I loved your Goblet of Fire one. I didn’t read many books this month, but I’m hoping to in August. It’s too bad you couldn’t see anything during the Potterfest- I’ve never been to one of those.

  3. I love both of those pictures! I have taken a break from photo-a-day challenges, but hopefully will get back into them come the fall!
