July Book-Madness!!! What I read :)

Hey, hope you are having a lovely month so far… Oh! wait! It’s freaking August… How the f%$#! is it August!!! It was January like 2 seconds ago and I am having an existential crisis about my personal life (As usual) but my reading has been pretty solid because I tend to avoid life through pages.

DARIA IS LIFE!!! 


I swear my social life so far has been pretty much “non-existent” and this year so far has been me “sipping tea & flipping pages” I am not complaining at all though but I would like to find balance in the near future but as for now….

 

Okay, enough of my not exciting life and let’s get to what is exciting BOOKS!!!

  

So July was an interesting month and one of the best reading months. I read 10 books & I loved some so much and two were disappointing. There is one that I started but I am kinda on the edge. I have reviews for most of them so I will link my review and use a gif ( or more) to summarize my initial thought 🙂

plot twist

Plot-Twist 🙂

Yep, the month was satisfying and I was truly happy with my progress. I had posted quite a no. of blog post from tags, book reviews and just random reading updates. It is always fun to interact to read others post and just bask in the world of books. It was also an exciting month for The Potter Heads (Harry Potter Fandom & Universe) with the release of Harry Potter & The Cursed Child but chances of me getting a hard copy is virtually impossible but I have been seeing a lot of talk both Good and Bad. I will restrict myself from reading it till the buzz dies down.

Otherwise hope life isn’t as shitty as it always is and if it does…

Happy reading Guys 🙂

  1. Epic reading month! Lovely post, I escape to my pages EVERY time real life is really sucky also lol. Sometimes it’s just what you need. So many good books I’ve never heard of! I just read The Fireman by Joe Hill & heard that majority of his fans didn’t think it was his best work. I found it entertaining at most lol soOoo I think I’ll give Horns a shot 😉
