July 2020 in Review

Updated: Jul 13, 2021

This was apparently the month of SJM books. I ended up starting all three of her series... Overall this was a pretty good reading month as I ended up reading a lot of 4 star books.

Here are all the statistics for the month!


I read a total of 10 physical books, and 3 audiobooks for combined total of 13 books and roughly 5,243 pages.

I did end up DNFing Exhalation: Stories by Ted Chiang (though I finished the majority of it) and An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir because I was just not getting into it. I also read Vol.1 of Bride of the Water God but I am not continuing the series so I did not see the need to write a review.

Here is a list of all the books I read. If you want to check out my reviews for them, click the links!
