Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2020

Happy August! ☀️ Can you believe we’re nearing the end of summer? Time has been flying by, and I’m excited for cooler weather to come.

TIFFANY’S LIFE 🌺

This month was, as usual, spent at home. 🏠 I started my summer internship, and originally, it was supposed to be in-person but because of COVID-19, it got moved virtually. It was a ton of fun, and I really love the company that I’m working for and, luckily, also received a return offer. 🎉

My university announced their Fall reopening plans (but I high-key still don’t feel like it’s a safe reopening plan) so I’ve been debating whether I want to stay in Los Angeles or go back. I just want to get all my stuff from my college apartment, but the U.S. is doing such a terrible job of controlling COVID. 😭

BOOKS I READ 📚

This month, I read 24 books which means I’ve finished 138 books this year. 🥳 My favorites are definitely These Violent Delights and Punk 57, but overall, it was a great reading month with fun readathons and buddy reads~!

This month, I also participated in the Koreadathon and the Reading Rush. It was super fun and part of the reason I marathoned through so many books. 🐰🌙 In August, I’ll be hosting the Nostalgiathon, a readathon dedicated to your favorite childhood books, from August 7 – 16 so I hope you can participate!

  2. You’ve read so many amazing books in July! I’m really excited for These Violent Delights and thus far, the reviews seemed to be positive and it makes me even more excited! ❤🤩 I’m looking forward to nostalgiathon too, I’ve been looking at stacks of my childhood books to decide my TBR and it’s been a nostalgic experience. I’ll probably ended up reading more than the prompts as it made me want to reread all those books 🙂

    1. I’M SO SORRY I’M REPLYING SO LATE

      Thank you, Marie!! for all your sweet words always~ ASDFGHJKL I think I need to give Majesty another reread in order to give it a fair rating. It was somehow even more frustrating than American Royals, and the ending…hnnnnnnn I was so conflicted because it makes sense but it’s also frustrating. If you want to buddy read it, let me know!
