July Wrap-Up

This morning I woke up and realised I will be 24 in just over three months. I have been feeling like I might throw up ever since.

I’ve started another job. I’m waitressing again. I work three twelve hour shifts and have the rest of the week off. The plan is to use the time to figure out what I’m going to do with my life. If there are any updates on that front, I’ll let you know.

I’m going to Dublin, Ireland next week! That’s exciting! I am looking for a really great book to take my mind off of the fact of being on a plane. Recommendations are welcome.

So, the month in books.


This month I reviewed…

The Dead Ladies Project – Jessa Crispin

Thoughts: A beautiful book about travel, literary history and figuring out how to make these messy lives our own.

You Know Me Well – Nina LaCour and David Levithan

Thoughts: A cute summer read about gay pride, finding your best friend and starting the process of getting to know yourself.

The Unexpected Everything – Morgan Matson

Thoughts: A romantic contemporary with some serious family drama.

  1. Such a great reading month! Are you me? I’m going to turn 25 in a few months time and while I’m doing post-grad & volunteer work, I still don’t know where I’m going with life. I definitely need to reflect. My friend recommended me a new adult book called Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Reid, which was a little comforting because the protagonist’s future was also up in the air.


  2. Oh that’s so great you’re going to Dublin, I hope you will share lots of pictures, and have a great time. I get the fear of flying, I did it just yesterday and I HATE it so, so much. I find that reading or just going through a magazine kind of helps though. I hope you will have a great time! 🙂
