July Wrap Up!

12:00 AM Serena 4 Comments

Hi, all! Wow, can you believe that tomorrow is August already? I sure can't. I'm so far down this black hole called denial because August means back to school and back to school means a Sad Serena. 

Let's not talk about August just yet. Let's focus on July for a little longer. July was an eventful month for me. I met one of my favorite contemporary authors, adventured in Disneyland a few times, and went to a couple concerts. I also worked on a bunch of summer homework, but that wasn't nearly as fun as those other things. 

Here are some concert photos, if you're into that sort of thing:

5 Seconds of Summer at their Rock Out With Your Socks Out tour!
All Time Low at their free acoustic set at The Grove!
And, as always, books were read this month! Here are all my July reads.

So that was July for me in a nutshell. How was your month? What are you looking forward to in August? Let me know!


  1. Ahhh looks like you had an awesome month in reading and concerts! Girl, I don't know how you go to so many haha they do seem fun though! I haven't read any of the books you have read (:P) but some of them are on my TBR so hopefully I can get them read! :) Great post!

    1. It was a pretty great month! And concerts are my fave! I try to go to at least one a month, if I can afford it. I think you might really like More Happy Than Not, so hopefully you get to it soon!

  2. Fun on the concerts. Live music is always a good time. I saw Styx last month (yeah, I was kickin' it old school LOL) and they still put on a good show. I've only read one book from the ones you shared here. I read Frigid by Jennifer Armentrout back in June so I could hurry up and read Scorched before her signing. She was at a B&N in Daytona in late June and it was great to get my copy signed. :)

    1. Live music is the best! So fun that you met JLA! She's on my list of authors to meet. I need to read Scorched soon!
