After a somewhat successful reading month in June, I wanted to continue that into July. I decided I wanted to revisit one of my favourite novels, like Pride and Prejudice, and of course, read some books I haven’t yet. I think my goal for this month is to read as many books as I can. If I’m not mistaken, the BookTubeAthon is in July, and I know there will be a week of nonstop reading for me coming up ahead. So, I’m definitely keeping this in mind with my reading pile for the month. Whatever the prompts are for the readathon, I may have to change, or add, the books I’ll read, but we’ll see what happens!
In July I want to read:
– Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen (reread)
– Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson
– One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kessey
– A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
– The History of Love by Nicole Krauss (finishing)
As you can see, none of these books are small reads. I think I just want to focus on reading the books I want, and try not focus on how long they are. I know with the readathon coming up, there will be the challenge to read as many books as you can in 7 days. I definitely want to do that, but I can’t plan ahead for it yet until the prompts are announced. I did make a little post about the event last year, which I might do again. Hopefully, July will be a fantastic reading month for me! I’m a little behind on my reading challenge, and I really need that boost.
What are you planning on reading in July? Have you read any of the books mentioned?
