July Wrap-Up 2016

In My Life

Summer is amazing! I took a darkroom photography class, which was really fun, even though I had no idea what to expect. My sister came back from her pre-college program at SCAD, so I’m not alone anymore (lol). All in all, there isn’t really anything to report, other than I’m having a blast and don’t want school to start.

On This Blog

I had 12 posts this month on my blog. I took part in the Make Me Read It Readathon, during which I read one and a half books, which was kind of disappointing.

In Reading and Reviewing

I read six books this month and caught up on one review (The Rose and the Dagger). I am now halfway through The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima, which is so far pretty slow but that I hope will get better.

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson — 5/5 stars (review)

These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly — 2/5 stars (review)

Shadow and Bone (Grisha #1) by Leigh Bardugo — 3.5/5 stars (review)

Siege and Storm (Grisha #2) by Leigh Bardugo — 4/5 stars (review)

Ruin and Rising (Grisha #3) by Leigh Bardugo — 4/5 stars (review to come)

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson — 5/5 stars (review to come)

In Writing

This was such a good month for writing!!! Finally, some honestly good news to report. I added over 32,000 to my novel this month, bringing my total word count to 50,000. This draft is going really well, and I’m very glad that I decided to start over one more time to make sure that I’m writing a draft that I’m excited about.


How was your July? What books did you read? What should I read next month?

    1. Yeah, it’s really long, but I actually loved that. It is a light contemporary read, but because of its length, it also gets to be a book with strong subplots and nuanced character development. Plus, the story is amazing, so I was happy to have it last longer than your usual contemporary romance.
