My July


I decided to do my reviews monthly instead of weekly. This way, my weekends won’t all feature my measly book haul and I’ll force myself to write more posts with actual content :)

July was slightly different than my first two months of blogging. I had to put my blog on a week-long break because I was hopelessly behind on my translation work, and I had some time to think about what I want my blog to be. I’m happier with it now than I used to be, so I think I did a good thing there. This is what’s been happening around here!

New Books

This falls under the category of Stacking the Shelves, which is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely people of Tynga’s Reviews.

I‘ve just finished Dark Child by Adina West and it was a pleasant surprise!

I’m on Bloglovin now, so you can follow my blog by clicking the icon on the right side –> You can follow me through other social media as well, I’m always glad of new friends!

We spent a week on vacation in our mountains, so I’ll be posting some pictures from our hiking trips soon. Before we left, we prepared everything we could for the baby, which is due in less than four weeks and I’m excited and terrified at the same time‼

 How was your month/week/day? Where are you spending your summer days?

  • I love Something Strange and Deadly and Half Bad!

    • Kaja

      Hi, thanks for stopping by!
      I loved both of these as well, they’re so original! :)

  • Sweet Unrest looks great! I’m waiting for more reviews to come out to decide if I want to really want to read it or not. Also, Half Bad! I need to get to that book as well.
    Crown of Midnight was brilliant.

    Enjoy your books this week! :)
    Happy reading!

    Nick – My Haul

    • Kaja

      Hi, Nick, welcome to my blog :)
      I have high hopes for Sweet Unrest and I’ll definitely be posting a review, so be sure to drop by again ;)
      Half Bad is REALLY cool, I liked how it was something quite different from the usual YA batch. The protagonist is a boy, which is kind of refreshing in YA fantasy…

  • Looks like a good haul! I still need to read Sarah J. Maas… Enjoy!

    My StS.

      Hi, Nikki!
      I enjoyed the 2nd Maas book better than the first, I have to admit, but the second was really cool and I can’t wait for the third part!

  • Crown of Midnight was great, you’ll definitely enjoy it and be craving Heir of Fire, I tell you :)

    Check out my STS

      YESSSS, I KNOW!! I’ve just finished it (and wrote the review!) and I can’t wait for HoF! :)
      Thanks for the comment, Courtney!
