Wrap up for July

I feel like time is flying by way too fast, last month I graduated and today I'm going to find out whether or not I'm going to uni in August or September. I have no idea if I'm ready to go to uni or not but it's the perfect way to get where I want to be - in the publishing business. But more on that another day!
I think it's safe to say that I read a lot this month, I participated in the cramathon readathon where I read a total of 7 and a half books but other than that I just relaxed and read whatever I felt like! I managed to read a total of 18 books this month and 5 short stories, novellas and graphic novels.

Things that happened
It's not like I can say a bunch of stuff happened in July, because even though time has flown by I didn't do that much. BUT a lot of what happened was quite important!
  • I went on a four day trip with my boyfriend and his parents
  • I participated in cramathon
  • I received my first physical ARC: Omega
  • I finished 2 series! (Manga classics and The Hundred) I'm quite bad at finishing series, you can read about other series I need to finish here
  • I didn't buy a single book! I received quite a few from authors and publishers but I didn't actually buy any myself. 
  • I reached 100 followers on google+
  • My application to the University of Southern Denmark was accepted so I'm going to University September 1!
