July 2019 Recap

Happy August, everyone! Hope you're all enjoying summer! It's been an extremely hot summer even for Florida, as evidenced by the monthly horror story I call my electric bill. :( Ah, well—at least we have air conditioning to stay cool.

I really slacked off in July, only reading 2 books and posting 1 review. :( I did finally get around to reading Victoria Schwab's Vengeful, which I was determined to cross off my 2019 TBR. Although I read consistently (I LOVE having a daily reading tracker in my bullet journal), most days I only got in a few pages either before work or late in the evening. Noticing this pattern has really made me think about how I spend my time and if there are any things in my daily routine that really aren't that high priority and which can be swapped out a few times a week for some extra reading and blogging.

I also lost the past week to a whopper of a cold that made it difficult to do very much other than sneeze, blow my nose, and sleep. I can usually fight this kind of thing off in a day or two, but I think I was really run down this time. I'm finally feeling like myself again and trying to get back on track with reading and blogging.

Have you read anything good lately? How has your summer been going?

  1. I’m glad you’re feeling better. I’ve also barely been reading because of work. I need to get better at managing my free time. I hope you’re having a good August!

    1. This month has just gotten busier and busier, lol, and I haven't had much time for either reading or blogging. Hope you're having a great August, too!

  2. I live in Virginia, so I totally feel you on the awful summer heat. Colds are never fun, but I'm happy that you're feeling better now. And I REALLY need to pick up Vengeful soon. It has been gathering dust on my bookshelf for months.

    1. I got Vengeful when it was released and just never had time to read it until recently. Hope you get the chance to read it soon- it was excellent!
