Pride Month TBR

Diverse Summer Releases

Discussion: ARCs

My goals:

Read 150 books: I am 6 books ahead of schedule on 79 books! I’ve been traveling quite a lot in the past few days, hence ALL THE READING. It’s been great.

Try more genres: I haven’t read all that many different genres this month. However, In June I wanted to read books for the Ramadan Readathon and Pride month, so I was more focused on the content of the books than the genre. I only read 2/3 of my Ramadan Readathon books, but I read books representing ace, aro, gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, and non-binary characters so I’m counting this month as a win.

Read more ARCs: It doesn’t feel like I’ve read all that many ARCs because I’ve requested SO MANY MORE. I’ve already downloaded Beyond Trans, Grrrls on the Side, Undocumented and in College and City of Saints & Thieves.

Keep track of what I read: LOL NOPE.

Complete the 2017 Diversity Bingo: Not much progress here I’m afraid. I really need to get my butt in gear.

    i feel better to find out that i’m not the only one behind at my goodreads goal. however, yours is still much more impressive, considering you’ve read so far more than i’ve set myself to read throughout the whole year, hahah. i’m planning to catch up during winter break, but i also want to watch netflix all day. #stressfulchoices hahah
    i hope you have a great july, wendy!

    You had such a great reading month and congratulations with annual reading challenge. I like how diverse your reading is. What books did you read concerning Ramadan?

    I have also been trying to read more ARcs so that I can get back to my own books in August but like you. I read and request even more.

    All the best with your reading goals and happy July 🙂

      Thanks! I try and read mainly diverse books, and the non-diverse ones I don’t tend to review on here. The two books I read for Ramadan Readathon were Haldol and Hyacinths (a memoir about a Muslim woman with bipolar disorder) and The Things I Would Tell You (a collection of short stories, poems and plays by British Muslim women.)

      I just cannot stop with the ARCs! Thanks for commenting 🙂
