June 2021: Monthly Wrap-Up

As you may have noticed, it’s been a little quite over here on my blog during the month of June! I’m not going on hiatus or anything like that, but there likely will continue to be a lot less content popping up on my blog for the next little while. And that’s really just because I’ve been very busy – and very focused! – on finishing my thesis!

Because of that I’ve definitely been doing a lot less book reading, and a lot more research article reading! (If only I could count the 200 or so of those I blasted through this past month in my goodreads challenge! 😂) It’s also been a little hard to focus on blog writing when I’ve been so busy thesis writing…

The good news is I’m almost done! Like, in a couple more weeks this will all be over. (Just in time to prep for the oral exam… 🥲) But, until then you probably won’t be seeing me post too much – though I definitely plan to pick back up blogging a lot more once this whole thing is all done and behind me!

Books Read:

While I didn’t get a chance to read as much as I usually do this month, I still managed to finish 5 books! ☺️

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera | This book was really emotionally. I highly recommend!

Olive by Emma Gannon | This is a really interesting book about a woman contemplating being childfree by choice. Review to come!

A Sisterhood of Secret Ambitions by Sheena Boekweg | This is such a great historical read about a secret society of influential women. Check out my review here!

Mirrorland by Carole Johnstone | This book is super creepy, and very atmospheric. Between the gothic vibes, the unexpected twists, and the dark themes, I really enjoyed this one. Check out my review here!

Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon | This is a really great novel, bursting with heart, that totally swept me off my feet. Check out my review here!

Next Month’s TBR:

Switching it up this month and not posting a TBR for July, since I’ve fallen so far behind that it’s past the point of ridiculousness. 😅

What did you get up to in June?

What do you have planned for July?
