July 2019 Wrap Up

Hi friends, it’s time for another monthly wrap up!

July was a good month. I saw GOT7 live in Dallas and it made my year. True it’s only July, but my love for them is so strong and seeing them perform live was amazing! 

Got7 Concert

 While I did cut back on my reading, I still read a few books. 

However, I seem to be forgetting that I’m on a hiatus because I was still obsessive about reading. I was always looking for new books or still trying to blog hop. I might extend my hiatus to August because I really didn’t take the time that I needed. 

I had good feedback on the manga section I included last month, so it’s back in this post! Once again, let me know if you like this or hate it. 

Now before we jump into books, let’s talk about music and TV.

I have had Baekhyun’s solo album on repeat all month. Every song on this album jams and I’m obsessed! It was definitely worth the wait because his voice is what my dreams are made of. 

TV

Nothing new here. Still watching Sweet Love Patisserie!

Books

Now to the main reason of this post, the books! This month I’ve read 11 books, 18 mangas, and 3 graphic novels.

Manga Wrap Up

Copy of Manga Wrap Up

Black Bird by Kanoko Sakurakouji – While I still love the two main characters, there’s only so far you can stretch a will they or won’t they situation. 5/18 VOLUMES

Waiting for Spring by Anashin – I am so in love with these characters! While the love triangle is getting a bit old (rooting for Aya!), I’m still invested. 9/11 VOLUMES (series is ongoing)

QQ Sweeper by Kyousuke Motomi  – While I did enjoy this prequel manga series, I would have loved more things to be cleared up. Now it’s time to start Queen’s Quality! 3/3 VOLUMES COMPLETED

Dreaming Sun by Ichigo Takano – While this was cute, that’s all I can really say about it. I can get the references for Fruits Basket though. It really does give off that vibe and that’s most likely the only reason that I will pick up the next volume.. 1/10 VOLUMES


So here is my wrap up for July, moving on to August!

  1. As always, your posts give me life and I wanted to say I love you ❤️ Make sure you take the time you need, we’ll all be here when you get back! ❤️ And of course, the list of these books have given me life and now I need a copy of Lock Every Door!

      1. I almost put a copy in my Book of the Month box. But then I saw that they had House of Salt and Sorrows. I was so torn! But I definitely think next week I might pick up a copy of Lock Every Door. It needs to be fall already because I have nothing but desires for thrillers and mysteries right now lol 😂 Awe, that makes my heart melt! ❤️ I love you, you’re a Queen!

  3. I love that you have a monthly wrap-up that you use to catch up your viewers on what you’ve been watching, listening to, and reading! I’m relatively new to blogging so it’s cool seeing all the different ideas that people have had on what to write about, but a monthly check-in is so neat. Glad to see you had a great July! 🙂

  4. I have been on a semi hiatus too Kayla and I am thinking about posting less often or at least, not every day of the week as I want to keep blogging being fun! You had not a bad month reading wise!

  5. I am highly anticipating more and more reviews of Lock Every Day because I have a feeling I’m going to love it but I’m not sure enough yet to buy it lol. I want my next Thriller read to be SO GOOD because I’m very very much in the mood to be fictionally freaked out right now.
