July Wrap Up 2018

I can’t even be like ‘wow this year is going by so fast’ because July was the slowest month for me ever. July was a super shitty month for me in terms of my personal life. I don’t think I got a break at all. My mum had three seizures and ended up in the hospital again a week later for almost having a heart attack (all before her 44th birthday). I was left to help care for mum alone while also trying to balance my full semester of uni that I signed up for. I also got diagnosed with mild arthritis so it’s been a mess of a month.

Don’t get me wrong, some good things happened. We finally caught up on our rent. My mum had a great birthday. My mum made a full recovery and there was no heart attack. I got to go see the Masterchef Australia judges with one of my favourite people, as well as have a great day with her and her partner. I also now being treated for my mild arthritis (which is good!) and I got the work experience opportunity I wanted.

Some major highs and lows this month.

I also upped my Goodreads goal and managed to hit 100 books this month! Yay!

You’re not here to hear about my highs and lows of July 2018 though. You’re here to find out how many books I managed to get through. I managed to read nineteen books in July. Here they are. A lot of the reviews haven’t been posted yet, so prepare for them over the next month or so.

    • Thank you so much 💕 hahah, honestly, I’m just a fast reader. I’ve started using audiobooks but in general I have always been good at reading a lot of books a month. I’m sorry I have no tips 😂😂

      • that’s okay 😂 + I wish I could listen to a lot of audiobooks, but for me b/c I listen to a lot of fiction podcasts I can’t really get into audiobooks as much (it really depends on the book too!) ^_^
