July 2021 Wrap-Up

July went by super fast for me! It almost feels like I blinked and suddenly the month was over and I’m well aware I pretty much said the same thing last month. Somehow times just accelerated and I hope the rest of the year won’t fly by as quickly. Where even is time going? But … before this all gets too deep, let’s take a look at the books I read during the past month.

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind  The Taking of Jake Livingston  God Pharm  Like a Love Song  The Course of Love

As per usual, click on the covers to get re-directed to Goodreads, where you are always welcome to add me as a reading buddy! My own reviews (where there is one) you’re able to find by clicking on the titles in the list above if there are posts for them.

July was good? There’s really nothing in particular that stood out as either amazing or bad. I DID finally get my vaccination and while I felt a bit tired and sore, it went over pretty decently. Other than that, I’m really struggling to think of anything noteworthy to mention. I may have returned to social media a bit more, but am still not spending nearly as much time on it as I previously did. I just feel calmer not thinking about it too much and mostly focusing on my DMs. So, if you need me, that’s where you can still easily contact me.

However, one thing I did appreciate this past month is that my lengthy commute to and from work gives me the perfect excuse to read more again. Since I’m not glued to my phone to check various timelines, I can just read and/or enjoy the landscape going by. I’ve really managed to get through quite a lot of books compared to the past, where I just got distracted by other devices or things I could do instead.


As excited as I was about last month’s reading experiment, I was just as pumped to share another one in July. Comparing my reading taste with that of Chris Evans was once again super fun and also surprising in many ways. I’m so very glad this is a whole series now, because it forces me to read outside of my comfort zone, while simultaneously wetting my appetite to go back to books that I want to read. I’m not sure I’ll manage to post one every single month, just because it’s very time and labor extensive, but you can definitely expect another reading experiment post in August! Feel free to guess who the next person will be!!

I have to admit that the Loki finale didn’t blow me away as much as I had hoped it would. While I loved so many of the new characters, I felt a bit torn about quite a few other aspects. The show felt a bit like an emotional downer, not portraying that spirit of mischief at all, but I did like how it really changed the entire MCU to come. However, something I did obsess over was this Loki fic with a reader insert that made you feel like you were part of the show. If you are ever bored and/or interested check it out here!

dang, I’m the one that needed a hug after the finale …


Once again, I’d like to point you all to some awesome posts on my fellow bloggers’ pages. I hope you’ll give them a visit, because they deserve some love as well!







I hope you had a pleasant July as well! Here’s to a great and relaxing August for all of us!

  1. These past two months have gone by waaaay to fast… I seriously have no idea where this year has gone. Also, yes for getting vaccinated! I got my second shot at the start of the month 🙂

    • It’s just all flying by!
      I’ve only had one vaccination, but I got Johnson/Jansen and therefore that’s the full set haha it’s probably also why i had a stronger reaction to it.


  2. I’m glad to read how July was such a calm month for you! That’s definitely better than a month filled with eventful things that keep torturing you on a daily basis. 😛 Hope you find a nice balance between your social media time and everything else. Your break seemed to have helped you a lot in understanding that we totally don’t need to be on all those social media platforms as much as we currently are! 😛

    I appreciate the shout-out too! Thanks, Kat! Stay safe! 😀

    • Well, I wouldn’t describe it as calm, as I was at a new job and just working all the time or trying to relax on my days off. The absence of something super noteworthy is not the presence of calm in my life haha
      Most of the time, I just need social media platforms for DMs, because more than half my friends are online these days, even the ones I used to know irl.

      And of course! I love your posts, Lashaan!! Always happy to share them ❤ Stay safe as well!

  3. I’m really happy you got to read a little more in the past month and I hope you can continue doing so. It’s sometimes scary to think how much time we spend scrolling endlessly when we could be reading, but there’s something so addictive (and wrong, ahah) about social media.
    I hope August has been kind to you so far ❤

    • Thank you, Marie! The three hour commute I have on a regular work day really helped my reading agenda as well haha but yes, less scrolling on social media was also good haha
      I hope August has been kind to you as well! ❤
