Well hello there! We’ve taken a hiatus from our Monthly Bookish Wrap Up posts for basically the whole summer, but we’re back! Can you believe the year is halfway over?! We have both been busy with big life changes like new jobs, new houses, new milestones, etc. so it’s been a bit tough juggling this fun passion project with the responsibilities of everyday life.
Just because we haven’t been super active on our blog doesn’t mean we haven’t been reading, though! Both of us had a pretty solid reading month in July 2021. Liz has been zooming through so many audiobooks because she had the wild revelation that listening at 1.25x speed is actually the best thing ever. Sami has been going strong with our NetGalley ARCs and plenty of ebooks. We will be doing a mid-year recap of our favorite 2021 reads very soon, so stay tuned!
Without further ado, here is our July monthly bookish wrap up. Let us know if you’ve read any of the books listed below!
