Despite my resolution to keep some regular posts, I slipped up and forgot to post my July wrap-up last month. So, instead of doing it later, I thought I would just do a joint wrap-up for both July and August.
First off, Goodreads Reading Challenge:
11 full-length books, 3 novellas/short stories, 2 graphic novels and 1 re-read.
