July TBR 2017 // Personal Lives


Time to see what July’s bookish weather is going to be like! ๐Ÿ˜€ In this edition of our Monthly Kick in the Butt, we’ll go overย what we’re currently reading, what we plan on reading, our monthly quotes + our thoughts and a segment on what’s going on our lives!

Trang :ย The perfect quote for this summer ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 



I feel like I might have stolen my thesis director’s workaholic status this month. Every day was filled with something to do. But the funny thing is, it feels good! ๐Ÿ˜€ Let’s just say the biggest downside was just the lack of reading time and time to blog. Life can seriously be an anchor to blog productivity, I tell ya! July however looks super bright and awesome, so I’m psyched to set foot into it! Hope everyone else hasn’t had too many issues to deal with during June and have a wonderful month of July! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Love to see you guys having so much fun and looking forward to your next projects! But please don’t neglect blogging or I’ll be sad ๐Ÿ˜ข
    Your reading challenge is goals, Lashaan! I’m behind on 10 books, personally xD
    And I’m crushing on your quotes, they seriously couldn’t come at a better time ๐Ÿ˜›
    Amazing post, as usual!

    1. I’ll keep up with my blog posts, if you keep up with yours!!! I need more of them chocolate filled reviews! Or sour reviews! I do love rants. ๐Ÿ˜€

      I have NEVER heard someone say such a thing about MY reading challenge. I mean… I see people who have completed their challenges months ago and they had set it up to over 100!!! I definitely don’t think I read as fast as so many bloggers out here too. I’m happy that I’m always on time with my challenge though. Definitely tells me that I know what’s my rhythm and my max number of books (which.. by the way.. includes comic book trade paperbacks and graphic novels hahaha).

      Thank you so much for checking this out though!! Have an awesome month of July, Sophie!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Hahaha deal! ๐Ÿ˜› I love rants too, to be honest xD So you can expect some from me in the future hahaha
        Noooo it’s really awesome to be on schedule (or behind one book, I mean, that’s still pretty great!) especially for someone who struggles so much to read all the books in her list xD I’m ALWAYS behind. I hope I manage to catch up soon, though.
        And shhhh, those people are superheroes. We can’t compete! :O
        Thank you so much, Lashaan, and you too! ^_^

  2. I just love your monthly updates… so much awesomeness in one post! ๐Ÿ™‚ The quotes are killing it every time… Lashaan- all work, no play (read) makes a man sad! (It’s not even a saying, but you get my gist!) ๐Ÿ˜€ Trang- hellyea we want a post about your travels! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can live through you seeing as I’m stuck in an office for the summer that isn’t summer, more like wind, rain and fog and mist… the ‘magic’ of Ireland… ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Hahahah I appreciate that Liz! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You know how real the struggle is. Let’s try and make the most of our free time!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope your July brightens up and has plenty of good surprises (no one wants the bad ones) for you!

  3. I’d love to see a post about your holiday in Vietnam Trang, that’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go myself so I’d love seeing pictures and hearing stories about your travels. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also I really hope you enjoy Defy the Stars, I read that a little while ago and loved it so I’ll be interested in hearing what you think of it.
    I really love the quote you picked for this month Lashaan, I’ve heard it before (can’t really remember where though) and it’s definitely one that’s stuck with me. Also I hope you enjoy The Lying Game, I’ve heard some good things about that book but haven’t read it myself or anything.
    I hope you both have an amazing July. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. It is a great quote, isn’t it. It can however be used for bad intentions too though.. (think.. Hacktivists like Anonymous for example). The Lying Game will be my 3rd book by the author and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what new surprises she has for me! ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a wonderful July, Beth! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. It was super fun to read this post! I love that you guys used a lot of images and it is very easy to read ๐Ÿ™‚
    LOVE the “a goal should scare you a little” quote, and I completely agree!
    All the best to you both with work and research ๐Ÿ™‚
    PS. I think the social media buttons at the end of your post isn’t working? I’m getting some error messages from Photobucket.

    1. Our monthly posts are probably the easiest posts we do consistently and definitely makes it easier for everyone to know in a glimpse what’s going on with us! ๐Ÿ˜€ They’re also a nice change compared to reviews and what not hahah

      That’s odd.. I tried clicking them and they seem to work fine. I did see a Photobucket error while editing the post before publishing though. I fixed it before fixing, but I’m not surprised to hear this issue though.

  5. THAT IMAGE AT THE END, that’s so me ahah. I was so impatient for summer to be here but I’m kind of sad because well, being a grown up means working even when the summer is here and I’m sad ahah. I would LOVE to read all about your trip, Trang, if you feel like talking about it more? ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope you’ll both have an amazing month โค

  6. Ahhhhh I’m so excited you’re reading Defy the Stars! I can’t wait to see what you think. I loved it! Glad the two of you are having a good summer even if it’s full of work. Being an adult sucks am I right? LOL

  7. Hello, nice to meet you both here. I found you through the Twitter blog hop.

    God of small things is one of my favourite novels. Hope you will enjoy that one. I want to read Aster’s 4321 at some point but right now it is too big for me. Would love to see more news about the Vietnam trip btw

    1. Hi there, Resh! I am so glad to hear that. I actually recognize you from Instagram!! You have some of the most beautiful pictures/feed out there!! ๐Ÿ˜€

      That is definitely a reassuring thing to hear. I do hope it’ll surprise me in a good way. Here’s to learning more from you through our interactions!! ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Thanks Meggy!! It’s definitely been hella busy for the past couple of weeks, but it was all worth it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope that you have been having a fantastic month of June and wish you an even more beautiful July, girl!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Ehhh, that book is sort of on the back burner right now. I fear I’m going to have a similar experience as her most recent novel too. Unfortunate, but we’ll see once I finish it. ๐Ÿ˜› Wilde really has great quotes in his pockets! I always find myself impressed by what he had to say hahah Ohh and don’t worry about being “late”, I sort of am always “late” to most people’s post with the way I blog hop hahahah
