Can you believe 2021 is already halfway over! I feel like this year, and especially this past month, has gone by so quickly. I haven’t done anything this summer besides work and try to stay cool inside. Hopefully I will actually get to plan some activities next month.
Now onto my monthly reading stats!
Books Read: 55
- Re-reads: 27
- DNF: 1
- ARC’s: 8
- Audiobooks: 10
- Comics: 5
- Webcomic: 1
- Paperback: 1
- Hardback: 0
I had one DNF this month but other than that it was a pretty good reading month. Most of the books I read were 4 stars!
- 10, 501 pages
- 54 hours 2 minutes
Genres and Tropes:
I had a pretty balanced genre month. I was surprised that I actually read multiple historical romances because that is not a genre that I read much of anymore. It was my first romance genre I read and it will always have a place in my heart but I rarely read multiple in a row like I did this month.
My tropes are all over the place like usual but I still find it interesting to see what I am reading more of. I am really interested in seeing the final chart at the end of the year.
Like usual, most of my reading was done with purchased eBooks. I did have quite a few ARCs, Kindle Unlimited and audiobook borrows with Audible (Borrowed section).
Most Read Author:
This month I stuck to a couple of authors as you can see. My most read authors were M.K. Eidem (rereads), Laura Kaye (rereads), Lara Adrian (rereads), and Scarlett Scott.
