July Wrap-Up

July wrap up | 2015I wasn’t quite sure how to do my July wrap-up. Since I’ve been doing the Sunday Post, it seemed like it might be nicer to wrap up a whole month of blogging, instead of just telling you which books I’ve read. Sure, it’s interesting, but at the same time a list of books is also a bit boring, don’t you think? Therefore, I’ll tell you very briefly about what you might’ve missed this month on my blog.

If you’d like some more personal/life updates, check out The Sunday Posts I’ve been writing (they’re also linked below in my favorites).

July wrap up | 2015You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.

Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.

Are you ready to be strong?

  1. I often use my wrap-up to grab back at some of my goals I set for myself. 🙂 Congrats on completing your reading challenge! Are you resetting it for the end of the year, or are you just going to see which number you end up with?
