I can’t believe it’s August already! The beginning of a new month also means a 30 While 30 Update! WOOHOO!!
If you are new here you can find my original post HERE. The jist of it is this…I turned 30 in February and decided to make a list of 30 goals to complete in a year! At the beginning of each month I update you on my progress. Speaking of, here is this months update!
5. Read 50 books. (40/50) I was a reading FOOL this month! I really got into murder mysteries and read the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. I heard those were going to be made into movies soon and I had to read them!
First up I read Dan Brown’s Inferno. I LOVED this book. This book is the fourth in the Robert Langford series. The first two were made into movies, The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons.
James Dashner’s The Kill Order. This book is actually the prequel to The Maze Runner series and honestly I was a little confused throughout the whole thing. It was a good read but I guess I was expecting more?
The second in the Fallen series by Lauren Kate: Torment. I loved this series. I didn’t want to because I didn’t want to start another series but this one was a quick read!
Passion by Lauren Kate. aka Book number 3 in the Fallen series.
Rapture by Laurene Kate. aka Book number 4 in the Fallen series. My fave by far!
Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate. This book is a book of short stories that gives you an in depth look at some of the characters that you didn;t get the whole story from in the series. I love that Lauren Kate did this. Answered some questions I had!
I have been obsessed with James Patterson lately. I am really into murder mysteries (as I mentioned above and I love his stuff!) This would make a good beach read since it’s about a sailing trip and all…
I loved this JP book! Told you I was obsessed with murder mysteries right?
This book I listened to as an audiobook on my road trip to see my parents. LOVE audiobooks!!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I have wanted to read this book for a while but the waiting list at the library was FOREVER. I finally got to read this book and it was worth the wait! I really hope there will be a second book!!
The Last to Know by Wendi Corsi Staub. I really like WCS. She is a great author if you are into the whole murder mystery thing like me!
In the Blink of an Eye by WCS. This book was awesome too! Makes me want to take a trip to the east coast…
9. Reach 1200 followers on my blog! Since I switched to WordPress I lost my GFC and that made me sad because I thought I lost all my readers. Then I found my RSS feed and added that to my BlogLovin and as of July 31 I am at 1204 followers!!!! YAY!!!
18. Try 5 new Starbucks drinks. (6/5)
Not gonna lie…I did NOT like this drink one bit. #SorryNotSorry
22. See 25 movies. (10/25) I saw 2 more movies this month! I Wanted to go more but there isn’t really anything good out right now. Not that I wanna see anyway…
I know that a lot of people didn’t like The Lone Ranger but I LOVED it! Johnny Depp is HILARIOUS!! And WHite House Down stars Channing Tatum. Need I say more?
What have you been up to lately??
You have been a reading fool, love it :)
Love this idea! Totally coming up with a list :) wow I took a blogging break and feel like I’ve missed out on so much. Haha. Glad I’m back :) I’ve missed your blog! Oh yeah – why did you switch to WordPress?
Girl…reading frenzy!!! I thought I was doing good with my book list for the summer but you outdid me and in one month’s time? WOWzers! :) Keep it up!

Definitely added some books to my to-read list! I’ve actually read the first two books in the Fallen series but haven’t gotten around to picking up the next two and the short stories book. Definitely need to get on that now!
I picked up the first book for the fallen series or what not. I could not get into it! I’m just not sure if I can’t get into books right now or I really didn’t like it.
I actually really loved Starbucks Orange Spice. Which is weird. :)
