JULY 2017 MONTHLY WRAP UP // What I Read This Month

This month has been one of the busiest months EVER, or at least in a long time. First I had to prepare for my trip and then I went to Croatia for a week. The day after I came home I went straight to west Norway to attend my grandmother’s funeral. The car ride took 8 hours one way. At the end of the month I participated in two readathons and moved some of my things into my BF’s apartment. We are planning on slowly moving in together. I also had one of my most successful reading months to this date.

  1. I was going to say I’ve been meaning to read ‘American Gods’ for ages, but having seen your rating, I think it’s shifted down my TBR list a place or four 😛 It looks like you’ve had a great month in regards to reading!
    I’m sorry to hear about your grandmother, though ❤

      1. I find he’s a bit hit and miss. I find people either absolutely adore his work, or they can’t stand it! I read ‘Norse Mythology’ last month and really enjoyed that.
