What Human Food Can Your Dog Have?

 

Not to lie I’m still living in Gozo, so I’m not in the best mental state, but it got better since my best friend did visit me. My endocrinologist did call me and gave me some news. News that I’m not ready to share with the internet yet. I can’t believe that I reached 900 followers in just one month since last month I reached 800 followers which is mind-blowing and I’m so thankful for you guys.

I read 66 books this month, most of which LGBT+ or written by black authors or characters with a disability. Some of my favourites were Watch Us Rise by Renée Watson, Ellen Hagan, The Silence Between Us by Alison Gervais and Run by Kody Keplinger. I have a question if I wrote another poetry book would you buy it?

Since, as you guy know, I’ll take part in read-a-thin, which is a month-long readathon and the challenge I gave myself this month is to read as many books from my kindle as I can. Maybe I can complete my yearly Goodreads challenge of 365 books so I can upgrade it to 400 books.Plus, next month is another poetry month for me. I hope you guys enjoy it.

For the reading rush, I read 18 books over 5414 pages, and I earned 12 badges. Here is the list of books I read:

 

  • Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
  • The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving by Jonathan Evison
  • The Heart Does Not Bend by Makeda Silvera
  • Fire Baptized (Santeria Habitat #1) by Kenya Wright
  • Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay
  • The Wedding Date (The Wedding Date #1) by Jasmine Guillory
  • If You Come Softly (If You Come Softly #1) by Jacqueline Woodson
  • Dust of Eden by Mariko Nagai
  • Party of Two (The Wedding Date #5) by Jasmine Guillory
  • Stay with Me by Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀
  • Queen Sugar by Natalie Baszile
  • The Boyfriend Project (The Boyfriend Project #1) by Farrah Rochon
  • Towers Falling by Jewell Parker Rhodes
  • Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams
  • Royal Holiday (The Wedding Date #4) by Jasmine Guillory
  • The Wedding Party (The Wedding Date #3) by Jasmine Guillory
  • Take a Hint, Dani Brown (The Brown Sisters #2) by Talia Hibber
  • Truly Madly Royally by Debbie Rigaud

  1. That is A LOT of books! I love how diverse your reading list is. I need to comb through it and start adding books to my TBR!

    Happy reading for August! xo
