Book Riot Read Harder Challenge:
I am failing hard on this challenge. I started strong but the summer has been a doozy. My plan is to use August to springboard back into the Read Harder Challenge so stay tuned!

Book of the Month Club Pick:
Okay so the picks are , as usual, all amazing looking. I am currently torn between two books – The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware and All The Ugly And Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood. If you have read either of these, let me know what you think and help me decide!!

SO MANY BOOKS THIS MONTH. Thanks to the 24 in 48 readathon, I completed 13 books in July and put a big dent in my Goodreads challenge number. And with cooler weather on the fall horizon, I am excited for more months of lots of books and reading time.

Don’t forget you can read detailed reviews of all the books I read at goodreads.com/emurch, and if you have any thoughts about any of the books I’ve read this month tweet me @GameandRead. Also check us out on Instagram and Litsy, both @GameandRead. And until next time, happy reading!
