July Wrap-Up

This has been something of a big month for me.

I am officially no longer a waitress. I am officially no longer and intern.

I am officially an editorial assistant.


And I graduated 2 years ago this week. WTF?

A friend of mine started work as a qualified doctor. In a hospital. Where she plans to care for people’s vaginas. WTF?

I hung out with my school friend and her husband, who is awesome and someone I am glad to know. WTF?

Adulthood. Oof.

Let’s dive into safer subjects.


This month I reviewed:

The Upside of Unrequited – Becky Albertalli

Feelings: I would like to join the Peskin-Suso family, please?

Marlena – Julie Buntin

Feelings: Difficult but beautiful, this tale of addiction and grief will stay with me for a long time.

Radio Silence – Alice Oseman


Too Much and Not the Mood – Durga Chew-Bose

Feelings: A gorgeous, dream-like essay collection. Beautiful, whimsical and everything my brain needed.

I also talked wrote:

To the Bone: Authentic or irresponsible?

Mood Reads

5 Reasons to Watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Other than books: Some recommendations you didn’t ask for…

To read: THIS fantastic interview with Stephanie Danler, author of Sweetbitter AKA one of my favourite books of last year.

To watch: Lilly Singh talking success and hard work with Lewis Howes (review of her book How to Be a Bawse coming soon.).

To listen: Edie Falco on WTF with Marc Maron talking about being an adult with a chaotic childhood and why she’s too scared to talk to her heroes, even when she’s on set with them. I LOVE HER.

  1. An editorial assistant?? OH that’s SO cool, congratulations!! I’m really happy for you and I hope it will be great 🙂 ❤ ❤ Wishing you a lovely August! ❤


  2. Congrats on being an editorial assistant! That sounds really exciting.
    Also, I read Radio Silence this month too and it’s also one of my favourites ❤


  3. Congrats so much on your editorial assistant position! That’s amazing, and I hope you keep reaching any and all of your goals. ❤ I'm really glad you enjoyed RADIO SILENCE. It's a book I've had on my TBR for quite a while now, and really need to get to ASAP. Same with The Upside of Unrequited. Great wrap-up, and I hope your August is wonderful too. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! Me too! I have been floundering between waitressing and retail jobs for a couple years, so I’m really excited about this.

      Omg I can’t recommend Radio Silence enough! It really is such a wonderful read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
