What’s Been Going On?
Hello my friends! It’s been a month since I came back from my June Hiatus, and I’m feeling good. This year has been a tough one for me. Certainly the state of the U.S. has been very stressful for me (and so many others!), plus I started a new job (which has been an adjustment, especially because I loved where I worked before). All that, plus being in a months-long reading funk, well I haven’t been a very happy camper.
But, you guys! I think, finally, I’m coming out of this reading funk.
I actually read 3 books in four days, and have been wanting to read more! Which is amazing and wonderful. I’m so glad to finally want to read again. I haven’t felt that much this year, and definitely not at all consistently this whole year.
I still didn’t read my normal amount of books in July, but I’m feeling good with my nine books.

Obsession of the Month
I’ve been really interested in reading journals lately. I’ve set one up for myself that is sort of like a bullet journal, but not in a notebook, and with no planner in it. I’m still working on it, but once it’s ready, I plan on sharing it on the blog. I’m having so much fun with it. It combines some of my favorite things – reading, paper crafting and planning!
