I really enjoy the summertime, y'all. It's not a secret, given that I've expressed my deep love for the season over and over on various forms of social media. I'm a sucker for sunshine that lasts for hours, breezy days and blue skies, trips to the beach or out of town; I'm definitely much more active in the summer than I am in the winter. July has been no exception to the rule! I'm a little sad to bid July goodbye but I'm super excited that tomorrow is my birthday month (my birthday is on August 5). I can't wait for the adventures I have coming up, including a trip up to Cape Cod to kick off the birthday festivities!
WHAT I DID
After a very chill Fourth of July weekend spent with Macky, I've been doing fun things like going to see Taylor Swift (my first time catching her concert!), attending a couple of signings (a massive RWA signing + a signing at Books of Wonder), hanging out with friends (ice cream dates and Target runs and hanging out at each other's apartments) and just spending as much time as I can keeping busy with life and projects and chores.
WHAT I READ
Of the 20 books I read in July, my favorites were:
WHAT I POSTED
Personal & Discussion // Water. Earth. Fire. Air., Destiny vs. Choice, In Your Wildest Dreams, Rearranging Your Reads, Summertime Adventures
Reviews // Jesse's Girl, Emmy & Oliver, Love, Deception & Danger, Abbreviations #12, Ana of California, Power & Passion, The Bourbon Kings, Racing the Sun, It Runs in the Family: Read as Thou Will, Fight for Freedom, A Window Opens, Come Away with Me
Features & Blog Tours // Find Me Tag, Books in Real Life: Every Last Word, The Sunday Mix (10), Tunes & Tales: Breathe In. Breathe Out., Screens & Scenes: June-July 2015
I have to admit that it's been a slow reading month for me when it comes to fantasy. I've only read three fantasy novels - The Assassin's Blade, Throne of Glass (PS - You should participate in the re-read that Bloomsbury is currently hosting! #ReadThroneofGlass) and Court of Fives. I'm reading Legacy of Kings this week though!
