wrap up ╳ JULY 2016


Hello! I’m here today with my July wrap up, it’s been so hectic the past two months so I wasn’t able to do a wrap up for June, but hopefully this July one makes up for it 🙂 These wrap up posts tend to get really long, but it seems like you guys are ok with the length, so grab a seat and read on!

Books I Read

If you remember, I set my goal to read 50 books this summer, that obviously didn’t happen yet. But, I have gotten into the swing of things for the month of July. I was able to read 7 books in July.
