It’s time for another monthly wrap-up!! I had an excellent reading month for the month of July and I read a grand total of 13 books! So, without further ado, let’s get into it!
Books I Read:
Life of Pi by Yann Martel (4.5 Stars)
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi (5 Stars)
Everything is Awful by Matt Bellassai (3.5 Stars)
Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson (4 Stars)
Educated by Tara Westover (5 Stars)
The Endless Beach by Jenny Colgan (4 Stars)
Crash Override by Zoe Quinn (4 Stars)
Girl Online by Zoe Sugg (3 Stars)
So, I feel like I started off the month super strong with mostly 5 star reviews, and then it sort of trickled off into less stellar books. There were are few really great books from this month though!
Physical Books: 6
Things I Posted:
I enjoyed the posts I did this month. I have been toying with the idea of adding in another Book Review day per week, since I have been consistently reading so many books. What do you think?
This month was a fun month, mixed with a lot of just normal, boring life! I had some pool hangouts with friends. I went to two different 4th of July parties. I had my monthly Tea Party with my girlfriends. I went to the zoo with friends. And I went to see the Whitney biopic – which was super good, and super sad! I highly recommend it!
I also went to lots of doctor appointments. For those of you who don’t really know me, which is most of you, I have been having chronic neck, shoulder and back pain for about the past 6 years. I see a massage therapist every two weeks, as well as a chiropractor. My massage therapist told me that she really thought I should go see a specialist of some kind because she is just maintaining me so I can function, but she isn’t really helping me to get better.
Long story short, I was referred to see an orthopedist by my general practitioner. They had me get an MRI. They said I have a herniated disc that is compressing one of my nerves, and they have referred me to a physical therapist. I feel like there is more going on than they have found so far, but they told me to give it 8 weeks before we make any more steps.
So, some ups and some downs, and hopefully some answers soon! I’ll keep you updated as I find out more about my neck situation.
My August TBR Pile:
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows
Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
The Late Bloomers’ Club by Louise Miller
The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick
There are some repeats on this list from last month. Dragonfly in Amber is going to remain on this list until I get my act together and actually finish it! I really hope that will happen by the end of this month. Truly Devious is going to be a buddy read with a friend of mine, and we decided on this month! I’m excited to get to My Plain Jane and Stalking Jack the Ripper, as I’ve heard so many good things!
How many books did you read this month? Have you read any of the books I read? What about the books on my TBR for August? Let me know down in the comments!
Love and happy reading,
