So, July is now over and we are entering August. I have had a great month and not many major things have happened but a lot of mini stuff has. First and foremost I have done exceptionally well this month in regards to blogging. I had written 9 blog posts (including this one) this month. My stats for the month (excluding today) are 452 views, 226 visitors, 61 likes, 24 comments, and views from 28 different countries. That is really awesome for me I hope to continue to gain more and I hope everyone is loving my posts. This month I have gone to a cute little town called Helen and went tubing, I went to a lock-in as a youth leader, went to the pool numerous times, started an iPhone photography course, and cleared out a lot of junk in my room.
The Best Thing I Did This Month: I would say going to the lock-in was the best because it was a huge success and lots of fun. Sorry, I don’t have a picture I will next time.
Favorite Art Project I Completed: Unfortunately, I have not completed any art projects *CUE TEARS*. This is horrible because as an artist & graphic designer I want and need to always be doing something creative. Next month I have it all planned though so I will have something then 🙂
Now let’s take an inside view of what went down in July.
This month I read Vicious, Infini, Amour Amour, Silver in the Blood, A Conjuring of Light, and Damaged Like Us, plus I will have finished The Song of Achilles, & the Writer’s Bloom finished by today. In total that is 8 books completed 4 are Ebooks & 4 are physical copies. Next month I plan to have the same amount completed as well.
My top book(s) that I have read this month is between The Conjuring of Light & The Song of Achilles. My runner ups would be Vicious and Amour Amour.
My Best post this month was my Beauty & the Beast Book Tag with 84 views. My runner ups were my Vicious book review (54 views) and Infini book review (47 views). If you have not read my posts and would like to here is my July posts happy reading 🙂

This month was a slow one in terms of movies. Besides Bollywood films and a few others, the only other movies I watched are all old lol. I saw Kong: Skull Island, Beauty & the Beast (Live Action), Fast 8, Wonder Woman, Troy, Dracula Untold, Breaking Dawn Pt. 2, Transformers, Percy Jackson, Maleficent, The Notebook, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Baar Baar Dekho, Kidnap, Ram-Leela, and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. My favorites were Beauty & the Beast, Kong, Wonder Woman, Troy, King Arthur, & Dracula Untold. Most of these I saw before and just rewatched them but WW and the Bollywood films were all new to me.
As far as TV shows go I did pretty well. I am all caught up on Criminal Minds and Gotham. As of right now, I am currently watching Shadow Hunters and I am rewatching all the seasons of Nikita and Glee. I am waiting for Zoo to have the next season on Netflix so I can catch up on that as well.
Reading Challenge Update: I am currently as 23/30 books which put me at 77% complete. I am almost done with my reading goal which excites me because that means I will be over my goal.
The Non-Heir (The Black Mage Prequel Novella)
This is by Rachel E. Carter and I got it for free in an email as an Ebook so I decided it will be the next Ebook I read.
It was published January 24, 2017, & is a Fantasy
This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1)
This is by Victoria Schwab she is one of my favorite authors and all her books are 5 stars for me so, I am super excited.
It was published July 25, 2016, & is a Ya Fantasy
This is all I’ve posted on my instagram/bookstagram for July.
That is it for my July Monthly Wrap up 🙂 I hope you enjoyed and to all my new followers this month thank you and I hope you continue to enjoy my posts for next month & the rest of the year.
