July Wrap-Up

It feels extremely possible that I just wrote my June wrap-up, like–yesterday, and yet, here we are on the last day of July. I’m digging in my heels so that the summer doesn’t go any faster!

First off, I really felt like I was back in the blogisphere this month despite having two weeks where my body wanted to make me feel miserable, so yay, I was miserably happy?

And, I still seem to love the exclamation points! Woot!

Book World

I did 18 book reviews in July, and I think I even loved most of the books!



I was sent hard copies by publishers and author!

And because I want all da books, I requested some e-ARCs. So upcoming in August you’ll see reviews for:


and there will no doubt be many more reviews!

Writing World

I was so much happier with my writing output in July, even if I managed to flub Camp Nano AGAIN! I wrote over 20 pieces of flash fiction and poetry. The most viewed was Black Widow for Friday Fictioneers, which was about two siblings who, during a prank, force a startling confession.

Regarding novel writing, I have successfully disproved the theory that if you make a great announcement about writing a novel, you will be forced to fulfill that promise. And no, it wasn’t my intention just to debunk that theory (or maybe it was 😉 …naw). I announced it last month to you all, but I only wrote 1000 plus a few extra word–which does not quite make a novel although that would be a novel novel. So I’m not going to make any huge announcement about writing the great American novel next month. I’m just going to write and see what happens, and if anything does, I’ll share that!

As always, I look forward to participating in dVerse, Friday Fictioneers, Carrot Ranch, and the other wonderful writing opportunities. If you’re a writer who hasn’t explored these wonderful, supportive communities, check them out!

And, thanks so much to you all who have continued to make this blogging experience so excellent!

….still dragging heels, but onwards to August….

    1. Thank you!
      I have been a devoted Jessi Kirby fan after coming across one of her novels a few years back. I am looking forward to this one. She writes so beautifully!

  1. I like Goodreads for that, seeing my progress as well as a list of my books, gets quite messy trying to keep tabs on books we have read otherwise. Great accomplishments Sascha and I enjoy your reviews. Wishing you the best on your writing journey.

    1. you must friend me on goodreads! I like to see what other people are reading. I’m not always observant about the sidebars on blogs, but I am aware of what you read when I go to goodreds. 🙂 Or if you send me your info, I will friend you.
