Bookmark Lit Bulletin | July 2022

Posted August 17, 2022 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 0 Comments

BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

I felt like I was doing okay during July but there was a big stretch where I didn’t finish anything. I read another cookbook to help keep me on track and squeezed in one more book on the final day of the month. Unfortunately I had another DNF this month, which meant that I wasted a few days during my vacation reading something and not completing it. Oh well, August is shaping up to be way better!
