July has been pretty good! I graduated from university, attended YALC last weekend, and got my first ever physical ARCs! Thanks to everyone who’s followed me this month, I’m now at 141 followers overall through Wordpress, e-mail and Bloglovin! I’ve only been running this blog since March so I am really thankful that it’s grown so quickly. I’m loving every minute of it and hopefully this blog keeps growing!
Now, onto my July wrap-up.

Thanks to YALC, I’ve got a lot of new books this month, including ARCs of Goldenhand by Garth Nix, Gilded Cage by Vic James, and Girl Detached by Manuela Salvi. I was planning on reviewing these a little closer to their release dates, but if there’s one you really want to see a review for then let me know! I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep away from Goldenhand!
I also got tagged three times this month! It’s lovely to be picked for a tag and I’m sorry I haven’t done them yet, I just haven’t had time to sit down and really think about them. So I will try and get through those soon.
I’m a little behind on my reading due to visiting my boyfriend and YALC, but hopefully I’ll finish The Little Red Chairs by Edna O’Brien soon. It’s an interesting book, but it changes POV quite randomly with no explanation and I’m not sure how I feel about that.
And lastly, I have other posts planned to surprise you all with, so look out for those.
How has your July been? Did you attend YALC? Any preferences on an ARC I should read first? Let me know in the comments below!
