28 Books. Go Lisa. I also managed to get to 41% on NetGalley. Woohoo.

I am currently working on reviews for November and December so I feel like I am on the ball. I start back at work next week so I know my reading will slow down but I am feeling optimistic that I can get to 45% on Netgalley before the year is out.

The best books that I have read this month are:

Floored, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 13 Minutes, Thirteen and I Was Born for This. Check them out people.

I hope you have all had an awesome summer.
