Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I did a wrap up, so I decided to do one for July.
My reading wasn’t great this month, since I’ve been focusing more on the Captain Guinevere sequel. I did finish one book and read 3 more:
I finished Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes, which I gave 4.5/5 stars because the character development never ceases to amaze me. Plus Magneo and my favorite cliché ever. And Magnus.
I also reread Cress by Marissa Meyer, so I was drowning in Cresswell feels and constantly swooning over my dear Carswell Thorne.
I finally read The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux, which I gave 4/5 stars. My friend is obsessed with this book and I get it now! I loved this book and am hopefully going to review it soon.
Lastly, I read Two Summers by Aimee Friedman, also 4/5 stars- it was so fun and totally the fluffy romance I needed. And it had France and a French boy I am still swooning over.
I’ve been all over creation this summer but am so glad I got in some reading, and my blog has substantially grown in the past few months; thank you guys! I hit 50 followers this month which is awesome and I am so excited.
For writing, I’ve been reading through my current project and begun editing, and I’m just glad I survived the rough draft. It was hard. I also wrote the beginnings of a contemporary I’ve had in my head for a while, but I don’t know if it’ll go anywhere just yet.
And on a completely different note, I saw the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean movie with a friend this month and I absolutely loved it! That ending had me bawling in the movie theater, mostly happy tears but also sad ones.
Hopefully next month I’ll get to read a little bit more, even as school starts back up. I’m excited for the transition from summer to fall, just so I can pull out my boots and sweaters.
What did you read this month?
