July: The month that traumatized me

July is for horrifying

Ironically enough, it’s also my birth month. WHAT’S UP, UNIVERSE????

It’s been one hell of a month, that July. Whew! But let’s not focus on my three hospital trips. Go on and sit down, Bob and Becky. This is that time where I talk to you about what made July traumatizing yet awesome because:

  1. Stephen King book
  2. “Come and Hug Me”

While I only managed to read four books last month (I need to update my Goodreads account, yes?), it was a good month in Booknerd Kingdom. I barely crawled out of my room, let alone my house to finish gobbling up wonderful, wonderful works of fiction. The last book I read for July was “Pet Sematary” by Stephen King and while my nerves were all fried up, it was an awesome read nonetheless.

Meanwhile, it’s in the land of Kdrama Fever was where I laid low. I stopped binge-watching them and instead focused on finishing just one. I chose “Come and Hug Me” and dropped “Why Secretary Kim” and paused on “Master in the House.” (The latter is not really a kdrama but a kshow, though.)

Six Books I am Currently Reading and Oh Wow I Bet They are Ready to Murder Me

X MARKS THE SPOT

Amidst all the naps taken, meals eaten, and more taps taken I have managed to create a circus inside my head by juggling six books to read. I didn’t even realize it. That’s how serious my memory failure is. I pluck one book off the (sometimes virtual) bookshelf and think, “Oh great! This looks great! I’m going to read this.” And I read it with the enthusiasm of a child learning how to bike for the first time: Bound to crash straight into someone else’s front lawn. I pick one book, read a couple of chapters, lather, rinse, repeat. And before I knew it, I have six books that are in the “currently reading” limbo status.

A List of Things: Books Whose Words I’m Looking Forward to Eating

GOOD THINGS COME IN THREE

Since the last time I have blogged, I managed to miss 3.5 work days, finished reading one book (I know; I have magically transformed into a turtle — Sometimes, I turn into a sloth; other times I don’t even what I am anymore), and somehow managed to add a number of books in my TBR pile. Books I’d finish reading probably ten, twenty, 57634785 years from now. WHO KNOWS? It’s a surprise.

I’ve downloaded samples of books and most of them I enjoyed. Yay!
