July 2020 Wrap Up

Hey friends!

Where did July go???? Like actually this month went by quicker than any month this year. I have been a busy bee and just feel like there isn’t enough time to do everything I want to do, so this month was not long enough!

Updates on me: I am still working from home. This makes it about 4 months now which is seriously crazy, it hasn’t felt that long! I don’t know how much longer Ill be working from home but I am soaking it up the best I can. I’m finding that it is different and I do miss being social, but I’m also loving it and find that I’m quite productive when I get to be in my home office, Its more relaxing to me and therefore I get more done! I know that isn’t the case for everyone, but its working for me!

Also – I kind of just stopped posting blog posts for the last couple weeks. I went to Kelowna around the middle of the month and ever since coming back I just found myself to be insanely busy. I just haven’t found the time to sit down and properly focus on writing posts and because I wasn’t fully concentrated I didn’t want to put something out that was half assed. So, I’m really hoping to get back into a schedule for August! I think Ill be posting a little less just so I can keep up and post quality content for you all!!

Reading updates: I was able to finish 5 books this month! I started off slow with reading. I finished The Heir Affair and then went into a bit of a book hangover haha I just didn’t feel like reading and couldn’t get into anything. But, I got over that and I started reading again and finished 5 books so I’m happy with that!

Currently Reading Book Tag

Hey bookish friends!!

I saw this tag on Reading With Jessica‘s blog 🙂 So fun!! Go check out her answers as well!!


How many books do you usually read at once?

I have been reading 2 books at a time! Usually 1 is an ebook that I read on my kobo and one is a physical book!

Recently though I have started reading a 3rd book on my phone when I am waiting somewhere or have random down time! So far, so good!

How do you decide when to switch between multiple reads?

I usually alternate between the books day to day. So, one day Ill focus on the ebook and the next Ill focus on the physical books. I will switch back and forth until they are done. Sometimes if I’m super into the book though Ill read that one and put the other to the side for a couple days!

Do you ever switch bookmarks partway through a book?

No hahahah I have never done this?? Do people do this??

Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?

Just all over the place 😂

On the couch, the windowsill, the computer desk, the kitchen table, the bed, in my nightstand, on the floor…. really they just get put down anywhere and left there until I pick them up again!!

What time of day do you read the most?

Mostly night time! Since I’m at work all day I don’t have time during the day to read very much. If I have the day off or on the weekend I will read during the day though!

How long do you typically read in one session?

Probably like an hour to 2 hours!

Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket off?

Noooo, I like never ever take the dust jacket off!

What position do you mainly use to read?

I like to curl up on the couch in my comfy little corner spot with blankets and cozy pillows!

Do you take your current read with you everywhere you go?

Very rarely! Only recently have I started to read on my phone so, I guess I technically take my current read with me! But I never take the physical book with me. Too much to carry and normally I don’t have time on my outing to read!

How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress?

I try to update it everyday but sometimes I forget!

What book(s) are you currently reading?

I am currently erading 3 books:

  • Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating (on my phone)
  • The Dark Continent (on my Kobo)
  • Truly Devious (physical book)

I tag you!! Anyone can join in on this one 🙂 I’d love to see your answers!!
