June & July Book Review
Hi, remember me? I haven’t been on the blog lately mostly because this summer has been a whirlwind. The days seemed to go by before I even started them, but the months seemed to drag on for what seemed like forever. We searched for a house in Denver in one whirlwind week, found a house, put an offer on said house, and then went through the longest and most anxiety-ridden escrow closing in the history of escrow closing. (Obviously I’m being dramatic, but I’ve never bought a house before so every up and down felt verrrry dramatic to me.). This closing, which originally was to take 25 days, ended up being pushed twice! But thankfully everything wrapped itself up, we got the keys to the house August 2nd, and then made the drive from CA to CO over that weekend. This blog mostly consists of beauty and book reviews and for the summer I pretty much only wore moisturizer and eyebrow gel, my hair in a hat, and a rotation of the same 3 athleisure outfits I own — so really there just wasn’t much to blog about, nor did I have the mental or emotional strength to even put rational words to paper (… or I guess, screen?).
A month has almost gone by and my mind is becoming a little more clear by the day (maybe it’s the clearer air in Denver’s high altitude that’s helping) so I can finally publish my book reviews for June and July! There won’t be a post for August because I didn’t read one thing. My brain misses books so much but it was preoccupied (i.e. the first paragraph). Anyways I’m glad to be back, I’m excited to read again, and I’m thankful for anyone who still came to the site over the past two months to see if there was anything new. I can’t promise these stretches of silence won’t happen again, but I’m going to try my best to keep they few and far between.
In the words of Taylor Swift, it’s been a cruel summer that hasn’t allowed much reading time but turning that around this fall! What books did you all read this summer and what’s on your nightstand or TBR for the upcoming months?
