I can’t believe July is over. But I can’t say that I’m not extremely, incredibly grateful for its leave of absence. July ending means August, and August is practically September, which means it’s basically Halloween, like, tomorrow. You don’t need to check my math, just trust me. #AlternativeFacts

I unfortunately can’t say that July was my best reading month. I work full-time but I also take night classes to pursue my Masters of Public Administration (aka my Leslie Knope degree), and the course load in July in preparation for Summer course finals was brutal. This Fall will be equally brutal as one of my two classes is in Constitutional Law (oh boy?), but it’s spread out over a semester so hopefully I’ve had worse. That is my mantra after finishing my statistics class with an A – if I can manage that, I can punch a hole through the sky with my fist. Or something. Anyway.
As always, I have no idea what I am going to be reading in August. I can extrapolate based on hypotheticals, but currently I am going to go with:
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab – I am participating in the Darker Shade of Readalongs this Fall, and August’s book is ADSoM! Here for it.
Save the Date by Morgan Matson – August is the last month of summer, and that means that this sucker needs to get gulped down like sweet tea on a muggy afternoon.
One or more books by Jenn Bennett for the same reason as above (they’re summertime books, y’all) – ideally, both The Anatomical Shape of the Heart and Starry Eyes, but we all know what they say about wishes …
I need to read Sawkill Girls and get it back to Katie before she disowns me for holding her ARCs hostage.
How was your July? Did we read any of the same books? What did you think? Tell me down below!
