|Four free ebooks and two on sale|
|Bought on Abebooks|
|Thank you All Booked Up YA and Mary Had a Little Book Blog for the two signed books and old ARC|
Other fun stuff that occurred this month
- I participated in two read-a-thons and a few Twitter parties.
- I reached 200 followers through Twitter and I've gotten way more active on it.
- I signed up for Edelweiss and got my first DRC accepted.
- I reached 100 Bloglovin' followers.
- I was interviewed for the very first time by Pages Unbound.
- I featured my first guest poster: Kimberley Patterson.
- I participated in my first few book blitzes and blasts.
- I met and chatted with so many awesome people (especially on Twitter).
- I never once said I was bored, which I often do during my summer breaks.
- I came up with an idea of "Blogging Bucket List" that will be up and running soon for fellow bloggers to participate in.
- I came up with 20 songs to go on a playlist for the month (will be posted soon).
. . . I believe that's it. July was a pretty great month for me, but I'm looking forward to August being even better. I have good plans for this month.
