Hello everybody! Monica here. A bit late to post this but hey, better late than never. July was a weirdly busy month for me. I started my summer uni class, so I had that with its awesome two midterms, I had work and I had various commitments and appointments sprinkled in throughout. It was fun! The surprising thing though, is it’s also my most successful reading month for the year so far! How did I do?
Let’s get started.Just as a quick overview: I read a total of 16 things. These include 8 full books that I own, 3 ARCS, 3 graphic novels and 2 novellas/short story.
Yep! Those are all that I’ve finished this month and I can’t be more happy to be able to cut a huge chunk out off my ever growing TBR haha for the most part I think it was due to the fact that I finally succumbed to listening to more audiobooks than before. I wasn’t judgemental towards people who listen to audiobooks at all but for some reason I had this subconscious belief that if I listened to it instead of read it physically, that it wouldn’t count because I won’t remember it or something. That is not the case at all. Audiobooks actually worked better for me because I am mostly an auditory learner more than visually.
Of course, the narrator can make or break it, but for the most part it seems a tad bit more enjoyable to me. A lot of these I borrowed off of the library or Scribd which is good except, I have a gajillion books I own that needs to be read.
I did finish three ARCs that has been long overdue though so that’s fun! I have yet to write mini reviews for them and post it up but one step at a time. Also, some people might say that the individual volumes of comics that I’ve read isn’t considered a book can kiss my beautiful derrière lol if I want to I can and will even consider Wattpad novels and translated web novels as books too but I can’t get everything in life can I?
Anywho, not that long of a post, just wanted to let you guys know how last month went for me. Not too shabby in my opinion! I’m going to try to have a good month August as well before uni life eats me whole September. How was your guys’ July? Was it a good one? Not so much? Comment down below and let’s chat!
Lots of love,
