Jules Just Read… July 2017 – #MonthlyReads #FinishedReading #BookReview #Books #BooksRead

I managed to improve on my June reading of just 7 books, and in July read 11 books, 1 sampler, and 2 children’s short stories 🙂

Having failed my challenge to read at least 2 paperbacks a month, for two months in a row, I managed 3 physical books in July, thanks to the help of my six year old niece, who came to stay for a few days last week 🙂

July 2017 Roald Dahl

The Fox and the Star is such a beautiful book. I bought it a few months ago and it has sat looking pretty on the spare chair in my reading room ever since ❤

I’ve not read any of the Bible since April, which is very naughty of me. I must do better!

Yippee! For the first time this year I’ve achieved my challenge to get my NetGalley shelf down to 5 books or less. I’ve got it down to just 4 books with no books pending, and of those 4 books, 3 of them aren’t published until October and November, woohoo! I’m so pleased I’ve finally done it. Now the challenge is to keep on top of it 😉

Here are the books I read in July…

    1. Thanks, Claire 🙂 Physical books are my next real challenge. Dying to read lots of the books I’ve bought. Reckon I should be able to start reading through some of those from about September (assuming I can continue to resist the NetGalley temptation 😉 xxx


  1. My NetGalley hates me there are so many books sitting needing read….
    I am with you on the Bible reading and feel terrible about it, the most I am reading atm are the daily verses I get sent to my phone :/

    1. I’ve been really strict with myself and hardly added any new books to NetGalley, while forcing myself to work through the remaining books in publication date order. If I can stick to my own rule of having no more than 5 books on my NetGalley shelf at any one time, I should never get behind again. Let’s see how I’m doing by the end of the year. I suspect Christmas books will be tempting me in a month of two 😉
