Monthly Rewind ~July 2017

Posted August 2, 2017 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Monthly Rewind / 45 Comments

Monthly Rewind is exactly what it sounds like. A post to summarize the past month: Books read, my quick takes on them, top posts of the month, what I have been watching and what’s coming up. I will be linking up to Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s Monthly Wrap Up Round Up.

Break from Books
  • I had a tough reading month but manager 7 books
  • A lot of it was my tendency to want to watch TV over reading. It is what it is.
  • There was work being done on our house and it continues into August. Almost done!!
  • The kids have had a great time in tennis and camp and it gives me some free time.
  • We took the kids to the aquarium and had a blast.

Tentative July TBR

I also have some books to read for the Make Me Read It Readthon.

What’s Ahead

This is our last month of summer vacation and the kids have a couple weeks of camp and then some down time before school starts. Other than that we are just going to take it easy and hopefully finish up all the work on the house. Reading wise I have the Make Me Read It Readathon which I am pumped for.

How was your July? What was your favorite book from the month?

  1. 7 books is pretty good considering it sounds like you guys have been super busy with renovations going on! And yeah sometimes in the summer I just feel like vegging with a show at night, and books kinda get laid by the wayside. I read Watch Me Disappear, curious to see what you’ll think of it.

  2. 7 books is still very good with everything you have going on! You’ve been so busy. I really like that cover for Watch Me Disappear. I need to read All Things New too. I don’t know why I’v been pushing it back. I hope your August is good too! Take care and happy reading!

  3. I am sorry to hear that you have been struggling with reading this past month. Hope that it gets better for you in August. And I just LOVE Aquariums…I am like a little kid sometimes.

  4. What kind of work are you having done on the house? We are about to tackle painting the outside of our house ourselves. Should be interesting. 😉
    I can not wait to read the new Higgins book!! I’m so glad you loved it!
    Can you believe summer is almost over?! I can’t believe Sunnie goes back to school in a couple weeks.

  5. I loved Final Girls! And Everything All At Once is AMAZIING. I really hope you get to read it in August and that you love it as much as I did! Also, sometimes it’s nice to take a break and watch lots of shows. :=

  6. You still read a good amount of books despite being so busy!

    I really want to read Wish You Here! I tend to binge watch more then reading as well. What have you been watching?
