July, where did you go? I took a hiatus in June and remained on a semi-hiatus in July, hoping to feel renewed come August. Friends, I am still feeling a little run down, so please be patient with me this month as I try to come back to blogging. This month I read six books which is what I am averaging these days. I’m focusing on looking ahead because September promises to be extremely busy for me and therefore, I’m going to spend August preparing myself for all the events coming up.

Favorite Book This Month:
My favorite read in July was Elizabeth Acevedo’s Clap When You Land. I spent most my time reading crying my eyes out, but it was incredibly moving and a story that will stay with me for a very long time. Review coming soon. Cover linked to Goodreads.
Least Favorite Book This Month:
Oh, Wilder Girls, I wanted to like you, I really did, but your plot just fell really flat for me.

What I Watched/Am Watching:
The Baby-Sitters Club: – I am still trying to finish up various series, but I did watch the new adaptation of The Baby-Sitters Club. I really enjoyed it and even cried a couple of times. I love how they’ve updated the series and am in dire need of a second season. Claudia was always my favorite as a kid, but I always knew I was a Mary Ann at heart. This time around, I think Dawn is my favorite.
