July Wrap Up & August TBR (2019)

MONTHLY wrap up

Hi everyone! I know I say this all the time, but I can’t believe how fast July flew by! Maybe because this year has been crazy busy and in July especially, I fell into a routine that time just escapes me.

Either way, let’s get to my July wrap up!

  1. THE GIFTED SCHOOL by Bruce Holsinger {e-ARC} // DNF at 22%
  2. THE FURIES by Katie Lowe {e-ARC} // ✰.5

I don’t really have a lot stacked for August. I guess we’ll see how things go and how much I could read, but here are my priority for August:

  1. PERSUASION by Martina Boone
  2. ILLUSION by Martina Boone
  3. THE SURFACE BREAKS by Louise O’neill {e-ARC}

First thing first, I’m officialy an adult now! 21 is such a huge number for me (how????) and it’s really intimidating.

Second of all, you might notice the lack of my presence in the blogosphere. Not only for these past few months, but more for the whole 2019. I don’t know what happened but at this point, I’m already accepting that I am (probably) in a blogging slump, or just plain ol’ tired. Either way, I’m at the point where I’m perfectly fine of not posting in long stretches or time and only pop in once in a while.

Actually, I know what happened. This year I’ve been so scattered??? Like uni was a struggle. My reading ratings just dropped; at first, it was because so many of my anticipated releases have been disappointing me. Then I think it just bleeds to my other reads- it just affects you after so many disappointments, you know!

I’m so behind on my reviews and commenting back tho ugh. 

I’m currently doing my internship too and I just finished my first month! It was definitely challenging because the learning curve is really steep, but I also learning a lot of things and I love them! Failing and not understanding the concept can be frustrating, but I love what I’m doing: I love the pacing, the learning, and the feeling of things finally working after failing so many times :’) But yeah, it was tiring- not only because of the work itself, but more of the walking/commuting (I never really commute everyday like this before). It’s an experience, but I wish I have more energy to explore my surroundings more 😔

The place where I live is suuuper close to the library so I made a trip there. IT WAS HEAVEN. They just have the best books there! Sadly, since I’m only staying for 2 months, I couldn’t really borrow anything. I mean, I could read a 800 pages book in a day if I’m really pushing it, but I do want to spend time with my family, friends, and exploring too 😔 This is my first time experiencing having a library nearby and while I know for a long time how important libraries are, the fact that having it so close but not being able to utilize hits in a different way 😅 Not that I’m blaming the system, I totally understand why they made the rules! I just wish I have one back in my hometown, because it will save me a lot of money and space.

How was your July? Do you have any libraries where you live?
