Monthly Recap

July 2020 Recap

Hi friends!

Another month, another recap. Is it just me or are months flying by right now? I feel like I literally just did my June recap, and I almost forgot about this one and now here we are a few days into August. Anyway, my July wasn’t bad. It was my birthday month so I treated myself to buying some books with a birthday discount I had, and I finally received some of my backorders from books ordered in June, so this month’s haul was pretty good. I’m still waiting on a book I ordered to arrive, but other than that, I’m going to keep my book haul as low as I can next month and try to get ahead on lowering my physical tbr!

I read some good books in July! My favourite (other than my re-read of These Witches Don’t Burn) is He Must Like You. After reading this, I also got to be a part of the virtual launch with Penguin Teen CA, which was really great! I had the opportunity to do a Q&A with the author and have a conversation.

Other than bookish updates, I just submitted my final assignment for my summer MLIS term! I’m 14/15 credits through my degree, and next term will be completing a co-op placement. I’ll be starting working from home which will be interesting, but I’m looking forward to the opportunity to gain some applicable experience!
