June was a rather calm month, as far as I can tell. Looking back at it, not much happened, if I’m being honest. Even as I’m writing this, I cannot think of much.
♣️ I’ve had a week of holiday this month. I didn’t do much but it was really needed. Besides catching up on all the things that I didn’t have time for during the week – like getting a haircut, going to get some official papers and stuff – I really took time to relax. I really needed this holiday, since I’ve started to get scatterbrained and forgetful and I tell you guys, don’t collect your vacation days without ever taking them. Even if you do nothing, like me, you can definitely benefit from destressing.
♣️ I’ve launched the new design of the blog. It’s been up for about a month now. I’m so happy with it. What do you guys think? Is it pretty?
♣️ I’ve really bettered myself when it comes to blogging. I’m so happy with all the posts I made this month. Granted, I didn’t write anything during my week of holiday but still. It’s much more than I did the last couple of months.

There are a lot of reviews for these books that I still have to write. I’m super excited though. It’s not a chore, writing them all. 🙂
I was super busy writing reviews this month! Well, mostly because I was part of so many blogtours that I had to. (That’s not something I’m gonna do again, that’s much too much stress for me, reading so many books that I HAVE to read.) Anyway, here are the reviews.
Can you believe that I actually wrote something else this month? I managed TWO (!) discussion posts! I’m super proud. Here you can take a look.
Have I read the books from the Possibility Pile?
I mean….I read Girl Giant and the Monkey King. It’s one book, so it counts!!!
Did I reach my goals?
🦊 Goal 1 – Read and review eArcs/blogtour books ✔️
I definitely did that! I managed all of the ones for the blogtour! Super proud of me here! 🎉
🦊 Goal 2 – Read at least 3 books from the tbr ✔️
Yes. I did. I think. I mean, can somebody tell me when you can actually consider a book a tbr book? Right from when you bought it? Or only a month later? When does a book stop being a new book?
🦊 Goal 3 – Carry the book boxes down to the cellar ✖️
Yeah…that box did not move at all. It’s still in the same spot and I just kinda walk around it.
🦊 Goal 4 – Read a book with a LGBTQ+ character ✔️ ✖️
You know, that’s the reason why I don’t make tbrs. I just don’t stick to the things. I did not read a book with a LGBTQ+ main character but there were some side characters that fit. Does it still count? I guess?
🦊 Goal 5 – Finish making the blog shiny and new ✔️
It is! It’s shiny and new and I love it so much. 🎉
How was your month, friends? What did you do and what did you read and how are you?
