New-To-Me July Challenge Final Update

I can't believe it is this far into the year already but it's time for an update on how my New-To-Me author reading month is going! I will be looking mainly at new-to-me authors that I haven't read before.

Kermit looks like he's going to cry but actually I'm happy enough with progress. 15/31 read and 8/31 DNFed. So I've dealt with 23/31 by the end of the month. Not bad considering all my tv time this month!

  1. Great job. Kermit should definitely be wearing a happy face!

    1. I feel sorry for Kermit in this picture! I'm happy with progress this month despite losing a lot of time to Game of Thrones reruns and Masterchef Australia which had 62 episodes!

    2. Maybe that's Kermit after his voice actor was recently fired. Poor guy!

  2. You're trying some authors that I really like. Love Reilly and I'm going to go order Great Zoo Of China right now! I forgot all about it. You're doing excellent on your goal!

    1. Sadly I didn't get round to this one last month. Too many non reading distractions!

  3. Great job! Smile, Kermit!! :):)::)
