SUMMARY: july

July passed by far too quickly; I’ve actually always hated getting halfway through July because it always reminds me how I haven’t done much in the summer and that the school year is starting soon. BUT! I got through my reading slump and somehow read 7 books in 7 days. In total, I managed to read 17 books this past month.

July was also #thegildedwolvesreadathon! It was honestly so much fun; thanks to everyone who joined us!
