July 2019 Wrap Up


Hello friends! How was your July?

My July was….good, at the beginning of the month. The rest of July seemed to drag on, and on and on. Yet now that I’m thinking back on this past month, time flew by. I got quite a bit of reading done, which I’m happy about. I also posted a few things as well. I’m trying to post more than just book reviews, so if you have any post recommendations throw ’em at me.

I hope July treated you and yours well.

Holy crap, I read 25 freaking books in July. I’ve been having fun reading though, so I don’t mind at all that I read so much. I’m slowly working on finishing the series that I’ve read and liked. I keep on finding new-to-me stories though, so I’m getting distracted, haha.

So many…book reviews…YOIKES. My heart is so happy though. There are so many Fantasy and Paranormal books I’ve been reading.

There were quite a few books that I reviewed this July. I’ve been reading so much (yay stress), and I do try to review at least 98% of the books I read. I’ve actually read so much over the last few weeks that I have reviews up until last September, early October, hahaha. Oh! And I am trying to read more non-reverse-harem. So when I do end up reading something that isn’t reverse harem themed, I can use those book reviews as a divider of sorts, between the reverse harem reviews that I’ve got coming out.

recent posts

I posted things that were not book reviews in July! See what I posted this month:

Honestly posting things other than book reviews for the first time in a long time feels so good. I’m happy with the posts I put out this month.

what the people are saying
In the last few months I haven’t been active in the book community. I’ve been on my blog drafting and scheduling future posts…but in terms of actually interacting with other bloggers? I’ve been slacking. Though this July I was a tad more present in the bookish community.

Have you seen/read these posts? Each one of the linked posts have something that interests me. Maybe they’ll interest you as well.

July Journal

03; for the last few weeks I’ve been thinking quite a bit about what I want to do, life-wise.  I have many interests, and I want to explore them more. Maybe even sell what I create online.

also even though i’ve been posting here on my blog, i haven’t actually been active in the book/ish community. i hope that i’ll be able to pop back in…

31; I’ve been so tired lately, and today is no exception. Especially because my nephews were here and the older one is quite the rambunctious little guy…as toddlers are.

    OMG! HOW TO READ THAT MANY BOOKS? CAN I ASK FOR TIME EXTENSION? Lol haha! And I’ve been behind on reading the blogs in the community, but I’ve seen some of those posts on your list. I’m trying to finish writing plans today for this month, and if I have free time, I’ll visit the blogs on my list.

      Hahaha, it helps that I have absolutely no social life. Which means more time for reading 😎
      I’m relieved to know that I’m not the only one falling behind in catching up with the community. I hope you have a great day!
      Thank you for the lovely comment!
