Bye, bye July!

Reading: July has been filled with different genres. From dystopian to historical fiction & they where all fantastic reads.  My favourite read this month is probably A Million Suns by Beth Revis. It was EPIC! I love that word!

How to keep a boy as a pet
by Diane Messidoro
Scored by Lauren McLaughlin
A Million Suns by Beth Revis 
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein 
Tempest by Julie Cross
Breaking the Devil’s Heart by H.A. Goodman (Review to come!)

I also reviewed two other books this month: 

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Lula does the Hula by Samantha Mackintosh

I have read six books this month, which is four more books than the last month.
I’m looking forward to August, I have lots of dramalicious reads* ready for me.

Travelling: This month I went with my best friend to a farm. I know! We just went and petted some cows. J It was seriously hilarious. We also had a picnic near the beach and because we were hungry for fast-food we picnicked with…MacDonald’s. & it was delicious.

Life: In April I finished my thesis and last month it finally was graded. I’m now officially (well, in September I get my diploma) a history teacher! Woohoo! So the question is now, what to do next? At the moment one of my goals is to find a fulltime job as a teacher (hopefully, damn the bad economy) and save money for my own apartment. I’m really hoping *fingers crossed* that these two huge goals are going to happen this year. We’ll see!

Goals for the next month are: 1. Eat more veggies! 2. Catch up with the third season of Pretty Little Liars (goal for the summer) 3. Take my vitamins everyday!

*Book Haul August 2012 will be posted on Sunday, the fifth of August.

Congrats on getting your thesis graded! History teachers rock-my awesome ones are the reason why I was a history major in college.

Oh wow, such an exciting month for you! Congrats on getting your thesis graded ^^ I'm only a sophomore undergrad right now, so it's gonna be a while before I'm in your place but that just sounds so exciting! And all of the books you've read sound very interesting ^^
