Breaking news, this girl right here finally finished a book. It only took 2 and a half months, but I made it to the final page of Strange the Dreamer and it was as wonderful and magical as I expected it to be. Not gonna lie, the satisfaction of finishing a book was immense, but now I’m back to square one with a conflict on which book to read next.
In other news, June was a pretty standard month for me. More work and not enough play, but those random days off were well spent with good company. In terms of blogging, I’ve not been as active as usual, but I was proud of myself for publishing a discussion post and while it’s been a long time since my last book review, I was very satisfied with the outcome of my latest one.

I have some personal goals for July, but I’ll be keeping them on the down low until further notice because at this stage I feel like revealing them will just add more pressure onto myself.
One goal I definitely need to work on is replying to comments sooner. I’ve been slacking in my responses and have let just over a weeks worth of comments go unreplied. Apologies for that, but hopefully when things calm down here I can catch up on them sooner.
I would like to read another book in July, but I make no promises. Basically, my philosophy is to just wing it.
What was your highlight of the month?
Any plans for July?
