Like all the preceding months of 2018, July had passed by in a blur and it was over before I knew it but this was also a super busy month for me so I’m not surprised! July was the month of moving house, attending YALC last weekend, and preparing for my sessions at Nine Worlds in just under 2 weeks. Because I moved house pretty much bang in the middle of July I wasn’t able to get as much reading done as I wanted to but I still passed my OWLs and achieved an ‘Outstanding’ grade!

– Top 10 Beautiful Blue Books –
At first, I wasn’t feeling this week’s topic of ‘books with my favorite color on the cover’ but after doing some digging through my Goodreads shelves I actually had a whale of a time and had so many books to share I’ve had to separate the post out into 2 parts. For part 1, I’ve focused on beautiful blue book covers. Blue is not my favourite colour but I find many blue covers gorgeous and just had to feature them today! Part 2 will then be RAINBOW RECOMMENDATIONS because who doesn’t love rainbows and books?!

A whole new month has arrived quicker than it should have and it brings Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPIHM) with it. For those who don’t know what that means, AAPIHM celebrates the culture, traditions, and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. The reason that I emphasize the and in that sentence is that many Pasifika peoples are erased during AAPIHM. This was first brought to my attention by a Pasifika blogger who wrote about Pacific Island Books and Erasure in the Book Community, and which inspired me to write an awareness-raising article trying to bring this to the attention of bloggers I was in contact with.

Every month I start up with such blogging optimism and planning but it never seems to quite work out how I wanted it to go! I did get 9 books read but 4 of them were graphic novels and only 1 of them was themed around Autism Awareness Month which I didn’t get to review in time before the end of the month. I’ve not been doing too great with actually reviewing things on time so this is definitely something I want to work on next month. Over the next month, I am also hoping to continue my blog redesign so it should be a busy next month ❤
I do have two really exciting pieces of news for you all though, which you can catch later on in this post! ;D
