Hello everyone! Today is officially the first day of August, and it’s also the first official day that I can call myself a University student. Over the last two days, I’ve been on my college campus for freshmen orientation, and I registered for my first quarter of classes! I’m so happy, but let’s get into all the bookish stuff, shall we?
So, I did manage to get through four books in July, even though one of them was a graphic novel. However, that’s still twice as many as both May and June…. so all things considered I’m not too mad about it.
- Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave | ★★★★☆ | Quirky, wonderful message
- A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas | ★★☆☆☆ | WAY too long
- In Real Life by Cory Doctorow & Jen Wang | ★★★★☆ | Heartfelt, geeky, relatable
- Mirror Me by Tara St. Pierre | ★★★★☆ | Unique concept, enthralling
I’m still reading The Well of Ascension and Lord of Shadows (off and on when I have time), and thank goodness I finally finished ACOWAR. Reading that thing put me in a huge reading slump, and not in a good way. In good news, I will be participating in two readalongs this month with the YA Book Bloggers group on Goodreads! Our contemporary pick of the month is When Dimple Met Rishi, and our fantasy pick of the month is This Savage Song.
I know I’ve said this the last several months, but this just wasn’t the best month in terms of blogging again. Recently, I simply haven’t been in the same blogging mood that I have in the past. This makes me really sad, but I just can’t seem to kick it! Hopefully once I get into a routine with school, I’ll be able to get back into a proper blogging routine.

I do have some fun posts coming up soon, as tomorrow is my 3 year blogging anniversary! I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for so long now, so I owe all of you many thanks in a special post tomorrow. I’m also very close to 1000 followers, which means I think it’s about time I host my first giveaway. Stay tuned for that as well!
I mentioned above how I’ve been attending my college orientation, but that’s really the only big thing in my life right now. Other than that, I’ve been relaxing and enjoying the summer. However, that has led to me being a little lazy in terms of reading and blogging… whoops!
If anyone is curious, I’m officially a chemistry pre-major as of today! That means that I’ve declared chemistry as my major, but there are a few classes (aka calculus based physics and organic chemistry) that I need to take to be declared a chem major. I will also be studying pre-med, so lots of fun things coming in the future.
How was your July? What was the favorite book you read this month? Is anyone else beginning to prepare for back to school? Let me know, I love talking with you all!
