Monthly wrap-up – June 2018

Happy Sunday, friends! It’s the first day of  July and let’s pretend I am totally believing it and not freaking out that half of the year has already gone by.

Yeah let’s pretend I’m totally okay about that and… it’s wrap-up time!

in real life

The first week of June went by in a blur, as it always does whenever you’re having an amazing time, while the rest of it all was painfully slow.

I spent the first couple of days of the month on holidays in Berlin and it felt so, so very good to getaway. Despite my unease when it comes to travelling by plane, I managed to do okay and ended up having such a fantastic time discovering this gorgeous city for the first time. Even if I did not get a single thing that was said to be, because I don’t speak German. I really should learn. Anyway, if you’re interested to know more, you can read my full blog post about my trip to Berlin here.

Otherwise, the rest of the month was work, work, work and nothing too interesting to share, I guess. The routine and the adulting that’s never really that much fun anyway.

Oh, okay, I might have something. Remember how I mentioned that I might have another trip in the works for this summer? Well, now that it’s official, I can let you all know that you’ll still have me around all of July, most likely, but in August I’ll be leaving again for a week in one of my bucket list destination…. Edinburgh, Scotland! I AM SO VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS.

If you’re looking for me this July, I’m just waiting for August to finally be here so I can leave again.

Here are my very Berlin instagram pictures of the month…

on books

Goodreads challenge, I am totally nailing you right now. Even if I’m not reading as much as other people are, still proud of the amount I read and the books I read, most importantly, because I really haven’t had too many disappointments just yet.

Books I read

An entertaining read with a great setting, but some characters and elements bothered me a little too much. You can already read my full review here.

I loved this book so much more than I thought I would?! It was adorable, endearing, the characters were so great and I just wanted to hug everyone. Full review coming closer to release date!

This BOOK WAS SO GOOD?! I can’t believe I haven’t heard more of it. It was fast-paced and I just couldn’t stop reading and I AM SCREAMING. Full review here!

This book was recommended to me by Kathy and I loved it SO much – loved the diversity, loved the romance, loved the friendship, loved it all.

 

Well, this was a very beautiful book, both inside and out. The plot was a bit confused for me, at times, but I really loved the world as a whole and definitely will read more from the author. A massive thank you to the incredible Deborah for sending me her copy ❤

Getting into a Sarah Dessen book, I already know what’s going to happen. I’m going to smile a whole lot and it’s going to be adorable. Once again, this happened here and I really liked it.

IT IS HAPPENING I AM READING SIX OF CROWS AND I HAVE NO CHILL ABOUT IT. Okay I’m so very nervous. As I’m typing this, I’ve read about 60 pages and Kaz is already everything.

 

 

in-real-life

Definitely should get rid of this category. I know, I’m saying this every month and yet, here I am. I’m trying. I’ve been having random thoughts about my WIP and how to resolve some plot issues and things that just does not make sense, but as I’m writing this, I haven’t written anything concrete or took a real step towards editing that beast.

Someday. I’m keeping this category just to force me into guilt, to be honest. That’s working. Maybe the Camp NaNoWriMo frenzy this July will make me magically do something.

Travelling

 

 

 

So, writing this, I am realizing that I haven’t done any blogging-related discussion this week. Probably because I didn’t have time to plan it out well with my trip and maybe wasn’t as inspired as any other month. They’ll come back though – if you have any things, tips or and tricks about blogging you would like me to share or talk about, let me know!

I’m not sharing as many blog posts as usual, since I’ve been a little bit away, but…

Oh okay who are we kidding, I still have way too many posts to share.

    And you liked The Star-Touched Queen *.* I loved that one!

That book has been on my TBR since before it was released but I haven’t gotten around to reading it quite yet.

  8. Wow, Berlin and Scotland in one summer! Awesome!

    June was a… different sort of month for me. My daughter’s been having a difficult time, so I took a leave of absence from work to help her through it. Been busy with my blog even though I’m not at my normal job. Back to work tomorrow. Gotta pay off some bills, then I can quit and work on my home business full time.

    I wasn’t planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo, but I changed my mind. I was going to write anyway. I’m going to write a short story (guessing maybe six chapters, but these things sometimes run away with me) and finish the first draft of Like Normal People, which I started in 2016 (and was supposed to be a short story that I was going to throw together in an evening… Ha Ha).

    My favorite book of June? Maybe a tie between Strange the Dreamer and the first three books of the Ember in the Ashes quartet.

      1. I would say definitely make the walk to Arthurs Seat, the views from the top cannot be beat, and there’s something called Real Mary King’s Close. I’d try and get tickets for that too because if you like history it’s a good place to learn more about Edinburgh’s. The castle is a must obviously, and the Royal Mile Walk is a good place to find somewhere to eat as well.
        Oh that’s great to hear, and I’m sure you’ll love Crooked Kingdom too. I thought it was even better! 😀

    1. Ahhh thank you so much Aila, you’re so sweet! ❤ ❤
      I'm reading Crooked Kingdom right now and… I am very, very scared, I don't want to be hurt hahaha. I guess I just have to wait and see what happens, but I'm scared haha.

  25. Another productive month as per usual ❤️
    Your Instagram travel photo’s are gorgeous (as always) and I’m so happy you get to go to Scotland! Eeek, you must be so excited, I cannot wait to read your blog post on that as well as see all your lovely photo’s.

    I’m so happy you enjoyed A Quiet Kind of Thunder – It was definitely one of my favourites of last year! Also I can’t believe you finally read Six of Crows!! I still haven’t read it either, but I am so eager to do so! I saw on Twitter that you loved it. Also I loved your review of Tiny Pretty Things, another book that I have on my TBR that I eagerly want to read.

    I hope your July has been amazing so far xx

    P.S. I like the new header font!

  26. The Star Touched Queen is really good but the companion novel A Crown of Wishes is even better! You should definitely give it a try! Also I still have to read Six of Crows and Language of Thorns before King of Scars please help me. I am drowning in my TBR 🙃

  27. Omg I’m so happy that you liked The Star-Touched Queen 😍😍😍 *whispers* you should also read the companion novel A Crown of Wishes it’s even better than the first book and has so much banter!
    Now you’ve also read Six of Crows and I feel like literally the last person to not have read it 😂
