July Wrap Up | also, a belated hiatus announcement

Copy of Copy of again, but better (8)

Hi folks! Long time, no see.

Before anything else, I just want to apologize for being largely absent this month, and say that I probably will not be going back to a regular blogging schedule until mid-August or even September. Between adulting, French lessons, and actually having some semblance of a social life for the first time, I really haven’t had any time to blog, so I’m going to give myself a mini-hiatus.


This month, I read six books, which isn’t all that bad, considering that my head has been swimming in verb conjugations this whole month!

not books

  • I haven’t talked about it much but the reason I’ve been away is that I’m studying French in Quebec, which is really exciting, and so different than what I’m used to. I’ve learned a lot this summer, and I’ve had so much fun, but that means I haven’t had much time for reading and blogging.
  • It’s total immersion, so we’re encouraged to read in French as well, and I’m literally only a beginner. I did buy Six of Crows and Les Miserables in French though even though I can’t freaking read it yet.
  • Also, adulting. Adulting is hard, send help.

hi how was your july? what are some of your posts i should catch up on??

  1. Ahh all the worlds between us’ cover is so pretty. 💕

    Ah, yes, adulting 🤦🏽‍♀️ iknow eh.. sometimes I get the feels of wanting to get back in school- adulthood with full time job and barely other human interaction is quite.. boring.

    Ouhh have fun in this french inmersion!! Feel free to chat with me if you want some writing exercice 😘 although i’m only in New-Brunswick, the province directly bellow the Quebec, I’ve only been there once that I can remember .. If you like roller coasters and rides, you should go enjoy « La Ronde » before it closes off !! That was what our little family weekend up there was for; we ended up starting with the roughest one, the Goliath and oh lord – never again. 😂 just the slam of my head from the thing stopping gave me a headache for the whole day..

    1. I did indeed go to La Ronde! I’m a coaster junkie haha so it was a must do for me. I actually found Goliath the smoothest of all of them? Le Monstre gave me bruises the next day because they really stapled me in so every time we hit an airtime hill the restraints drove into my thighs, ouch. I’ve never been to New Brunswick but I’d love to go someday!

  2. Hello, or should I say salut?? (I was going to try to say something else in French but realized that I remember almost nothing despite studying it for four years 😬) Hope the French immersion is going well so far! Glad to hear you enjoyed Spin the Dawn and A Darker Shade of Magic 😀 Happy August!!
