JULY WRAP UP | acing the olympic games readathon! reading 31 books in 31 days! πŸ“šπŸ’•πŸ₯°

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog and welcome to my July wrap up! This month I participated in the Olympic Games (Percy Jackson) readathon and absolutely loved it! I started out the month in lockdown and then ended it in lockdown so I was pretty much exclusively reading and watching Freddie Prinze Jr movies and eating my feelings! I did also start the month with the soft goal of reading a book a day (31) and I actually succeeded so I have a pretyy good amount of books in my wrap up for this month!

  1. You are SLAYING! So happy to see that you loved No One Was Watching too! And I clearly need to catch up on the Sunspot books now you got me started. I hope August will be a great reading month too. Stay happy and healthy during the lockdown; hopefully we don’t get extended like other states….
