July wrap-up

Posted 18-08-2020 by Marion in Allgemein / 8 Comments

Hello, sweet peas!

Am I late again with my wrap-up? Yes. Yes, I am. Seriously, July was weird again and while I would love to talk to you about all the shit I was up to, I can’t really tell you. I feel like July was just so looooong, like eternally stretched. I was feeling rather bad mentally the last few weeks. I had panic attacks, was depressed and anxious and had really bad mood swings. I feel better now and really hope this isn’t coming back.

I don’t know if it had anything to do with it but July might have been my best reading month of all time. I got so much done, read so much and had so much fun. It even seems like that reading streak is continuing which really pleases me.

I also thought I might try something different this time. I think it’s a better overview. The link takes you to the goodreads page of the book.

Erm, yeah. I went totally overboard again. I really gotta rein myself in. I don’t know. It’s just so easy to get a new book when there are ebook deals that give you books for 99ct and it’s so easy to just click and have a new book. My tbr is off the charts by now and I think I will do a bookhaul post for all the books I have bought in the last few weeks.

I wrote one review in July again. 😂

I haven’t read too many posts in July but there is one I am particularly proud of.

Middlegrade settings I will forever adore

What have you been up to lately? Did you read anything fun? Did you write some post you are particularly proud of?

  1. I’m glad you’re feeling better now, and have had a great reading month. I loved The Land of Roar too and have Return to Roar. I see you have A Girl Called Owl – loved it!

    • I absolutely loved A Girl called Owl. I think I should reread it before the sequel is coming out. I’m so excited for Owl and the lost boy. 😀
      I ordered Return to Roar, it should arrive any day now. Have you read it yet? 🙂

  2. Oh no, sorry to hear that July wasn’t a good month for you mentally, but I am happy to hear you feel better now. Seems you had a great reading month, and I spy some great books on there, including some I still want to read (percy jackson, will I ever read it because I didn’t get to it during my vacation). Hope August is a great month for you!

    • Yeah, the last few weeks have not been fun but I feel better now and I hope it will stay that way. Thank you. <3
      And all the yesses for reading Percy Jackson. It's so much fun. One of my favourite book series of all time. 🙂

    I imagine this pandemic doesn’t help with any of the issues and feelings your experiencing. I’m glad to hear you’re feeling better.

    You have a great list of books read. I haven’t read any of Percy Jackson, but my daughter has been telling me I should. Just so many other books I want to read, too. Hair in All the Wrong Places sounds good.

    Thanks for sharing your books.

    • Thank you, Sharon. The pandemic is not too much of a problem actually, it’s just everything else. But it’s gonna be fine, I hope.
      And your daughter is absolutely right, you should totally read Percy Jackson. The books are great. 🙂

  4. Oooh, I absolutely LOVE your new design for showing the books you read! I want to change mine, too, but … I’m so lazy. And that looks like work LOL. You got a lot of books read last month! I’m so impressed. I also really need to re-read City of the Beasts and finish the series. I started it in Spanish when I was in high school, so … that maybe gives you a clue of how long ago it was. Do I remember anything at all about the series? Mmm nope lol.
