Booktube-A-Thon July 2016: Days 5, 6, & 7

I had a bachelorette party and bridal shower on days 6 & 7 so I figured I could combine these since I was so busy! Without further ado I will leave you with my final Booktube-A-Thon results.

Booktube-A-Thon July 2016: DAY 2

Day 2 has come to a close! I finished my first book today, Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos! It was spectacular! Very engrossing and moving. Wonderful writing, fully of depth and content.

2015 Book Challenge: July Minesweeper Challenge

I read eight books in July, so I got eight points…
