Where has the summer gone? Time flies when you aren’t a college student. I miss my summers off!
Let’s see. I posted 5 reviews in July, although I wrote a few more that haven’t made it onto the blog. I had something of a review block — I keep feeling like I’m saying the same things over and over again. It took me almost a week to write the review for Stormdancer! I still have to write one for my blog, too.
I’m still trying to find the balance I mentioned in June, but I think that is something I’ll always be trying to find, especially as I add more to my life. Work + blogging + reading + reviewing + writing + fandom activties = BUSY!
