Summer is basically over. I’ve got two weeks left before I leave home again until Christmas and I don’t know how to feel about that. Actually no, that’s a big fat lie. I feel like I’m one inconvenience or act of kindness away from crying today but maybe that’s because I’m tired.
While I’m sad summer is basically done with and I have to go back to real life, I am very happy with what I read in July.
Not gonna lie, I was hoping to read like a million books this month but obviously that was a big reach especially when you take into fact that I’ve been working full time, had my friend visiting for a week, had to go to Madrid for my VISA. In total I finished 7 books, and most importantly, I loved every single one.
Addicted to You by Krista & Rebecca Ritchie
I’ve seen this series all over the place on Tik-Tok and one of the romance booktubers I watch, Larry Reads, is obsessed so I finally decided to check it out before I get spoiled. I knew going into this book that it wasn’t going to be a super sweet and fluffy read – the romance is not one to model your own relationship after that’s for sure, but I thought it was really entertaining!
This book, and I’m guessing this series, reminds me of a soap opera or a CW worthy TV drama and that’s what’s keeping me reading. I’m a fan of a good guilty pleasure. Will I be admitting to the people on my English Lit uni course that I’ve been reading this? No. But I will definitely be slowly but surely working my way through the series.
Loveless by Alice Oseman
Finishing Loveless gave me a deep sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. For one thing I started reading it in June so it felt nice to just finish it, for another thing, I’ve been meaning to read this ever since it was first released but I had a feeling I’d relate a lot to this book and I just wasn’t read for that.
This book takes place over the course of Georgia’s first year of university so part of me feels like I should have read it last summer, before I started my first year of uni. The other part of me is glad I waited til after experiencing that for myself because I can relate more. It speaks a lot to finding yourself with Georgia figuring out she’s asexual and aromantic.
I related to this book a lot and even though it felt like it took ages to read, I’m glad I took my time with it and I definitely recommend it.
