June Wrap Up & July TBR

Good morning everyone!
It's been a while since I post or read anything. Not that I'm in a reading slump, but I'm still trying to juggle with my new schedule and commuting to and from work. I should've been more used to it by now so I think I can try to work something out next week. I can't promise anything, though. My new schedule is pretty hectic.

However, before fasting and work began, I think I'm pretty productive in terms of writing blog posts and reading books. On May, I barely get any reviews up because I'm not in the mood of writing anything. But last month I spent 2 days to write 4 reviews. I think the key is not to make it a burden and just do it when I wanted to. I also got new triggers that works whenever I went into writing blocks. So I think I can get past that problem and start writing my book reviews sooner than later.

June 2015 Book Haul
in a blue moon

I only acquired 1 book this month. I got it because I won a giveaway from Kak Ren at NARC 2015 that I join this year. I choose In a Blue Moon by Ilana Tan because she (or he?) is an auto-buy author for me and for some reason I didn't pre-order the book. So I asked for it and got it for free :D

  • The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales
  • Jane Austen - Emma

Books that I have to read to fulfill my reading challenge:
Again, my notes are MIA so I'll update this part later on.

UPDATE: After thinking it through, I decided not to list any book for this part because July is another hectic month and I don't think I'll get much reading done. I mean, I update this post on 18th July and I barely read any book this month :(
