July 2015: Recap & Wrap-Up!


July was a really, really weird month. I had a lot of things going on at home and I’m guessing that was part of the reason I didn’t read as much but I sort of fell into a reading slump! I’m always an audiobook listener but I feel like I spent a lot more time listening to audios this month than reading a physical book!


  • Number of Books Read: 8 — I guess that’s not TOO bad! It’s one more than I read last month, at least.
  • Popular Search Terms:  “books like divergent” and “books like anna and the french kiss” // “lunar chronicles personality quizzes” // “otsp secret sister”
  • More Amusing Search Terms: “how to do french kiss step by step” // “throne of glass costume” (Yes, please) // “romance novel dead lover” (hmm)
  • Most Referrals (non-social media): Perpetual Page Turner, Rather Be ReadingGReads!
  • Where My Blog Most Often Leads You (non-internal/social media)Books Take You PlacesTripping Over Books, Book Nerds Across America

    I read Since You’ve Been Gone, too! I thought it was great, and glad I finally got around to reading it. 🙂
    I hope you’re able to get out of this mini slump you’re in. Re-reading the Lunar Chronicles will hopefully help! Happy reading, Brittany!

    Love your book photography. I need to start checking out my stats, especially the search terms and where people go next. Yours are always so much fun!
