Hi everyone! Another month has passed and it’s time for my July Wrap Up Post!
What I did in July
July was a beautiful month. Once again, I worked a lot at my day job. I’m going to miss this job and some of my colleagues when I leave at the end of the month to move to Edinburgh to study Publishing, but I’m excited to see what new adventures await me there!
One of my best friends came over to Berlin, and we had some lovely days going sightseeing and eating in Berlin. One of the highlights was that we went salsa and bachata dancing. I love dancing so much and hadn’t been dancing for over 4 months, so I really treasured this opportunity. I like leading and following, and I got to do both that evening. Yay!
I actually managed to review all the books that I hadn’t reviewed yet, so I have no more books on my backlog! It was an amazing feeling. I’m going to try to review books that I’ve finished reading within a week from now on, so that I don’t end up with an enormous backlog again. Due to spending so much time, focussing on the backlog, I didn’t read that many books and after finishing all my reviews, I wanted to do some non-bookish activities.
This month, I interviewed Isra from the City of Spires series for my blog and it was so cool. She’s one of the most interesting characters and just a very intriguing person. The series is one of my favourites because of how it discusses oppression in a fantasy setting and how most of the characters are so supportive of each other. Here’s the character interview.
What I’ll be doing in August
My non-bookish plans for August are to meet up with some friends before flying to Edinburgh and move my stuff to Edinburgh.
I’m going to be participating in ARC August in August, since I have a few ARCs that I’m eager to finally read and I don’t want to be stressed with review deadlines during my first month at the university.
I am thinking of starting an Instagram account, that would include photos of books, of myself and of the places I go to. I’d love to know what you think of this idea? Should I do it?
