July Wrap-up

july-wrapup

On the last day of every month I’ll be doing a wrap-up with my favorite books, music, and posts from that month. 

In July, I worked a ton turned up the amount of books I was reading, and got back on my blog. I started taking Italian online from Wellesley college, as well! (Although my italian is horrible. Don’t make me say anything.)

Check out last month’s wrap-up: June

books

18798983Legacy of Kinds by Eleanor Herman | Goodreads

This is kind of my everything right now. I can’t stop talking about it! A re-imagining of Alexander the Great with some kick-ass heroines and incredibly well-written? YES.

19542841Fans of the Impossible Life by Kate Scelsa | Goodreads | Review

A beautiful story of friendship that I cannot recommend enough. This book surprised me in so many ways, and surpassed every expectation!

23015948Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten | Goodreads

Holy cow. This book floored me. Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls is shocking, honest, and despite not being super relatable for me, definitely a powerful read.

“Eventually” by Tame Impala

posts

 

During July, I had multiple non-book review posts, which I am proud of. I had three! music related posts: my Summer Playlist, my Favorite Spotify Playlists, and my favorite songs from the Paper Towns Soundtrack. If you haven’t checked these out and are looking for some new music, I’d definitely give ’em a click! Then, after going to go see ME, EARL, AND THE DYING GIRL, I wrote about my thoughts on the movie. Which were positive, considering I saw it three times.

July was a great month for me, but it’s end means closer to the end of school! I’m hoping to read a ton in August, and get content prepared for the beginning of school. I’m also looking to work on my college applications (!!!!!) and wrap up Italian classes.

Here’s a great August!

    DUDE I just finished LEGACY OF KINGS and I have very half and half feelings about it. The characters didn’t really work for me 🙁 I’m looking forward to reading FANS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE LIFE though! And giiiirl I’ve been really obsessed with Halsey atm. Yaaas

    • I AM SO SAD THAT LEGACY OF KINGS DIDN’T WORK FOR YOU 🙁 all the cries. But FANS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE LIFE is so good, and definitely a Jen book! Halsey FTW. <3

  • Looks like you had a great month Willa! I haven’t read any books that you mentioned (:P) but they all look great! And yes, Halsey, yes. 😉
