 Random Things I Did

I obsessed over Panic! at the Disco and spent hours watching random videos on Brendon Urie just being Brendon Urie and all the weirdness and sass that it entails, now I think I’m in love

I discovered My Chemical Romance four years too late. It is now my goal in life to be as stylish and diverse as Gerard Way’s hair pre-2017, of course.

I recently found out that I am a huge Twenty One Pilots fan. I sat down and listened to every single one of their songs and now they are my favorite band. I’ve been singing Forest for the past two days and it won’t come out of my head!

Really, I just listened to a lot of music this month

I also learned how to use Photoshop so, yay. I’m not very good, but I had to make a poster for a  school organization that I’m in and I think it went pretty well

And, I hosted a giveaway! I was giving away a signed arc of All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvatter. Thank you to all who participated!

 

What I’m Doing Next Month

School started at the end of August so I guess I’ll be doing a lot of learning. How fun.

 

Next Month’s TBR

There’s Someone in Your House by Stephanie Perkins

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvatter

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Each of these books have been on this list since July. Hopefully September proves to be a more successful time for reading.

 

Well…

Random Things I Did

– I went to Kings Dominion. There is that.

– I watched some stuff on Netflix. The Blacklist, Riverdale, Dexter.

– I was bored out of my mind.

– Basically, I’m just waiting for summer to end. I’ve reach my maximum point of boredom and doing nothing.

What I’m Doing Next Month

I haven’t the slightest idea. I guess we shall see. Hopefully more than I did this month. Hopefully. I said the same thing last month.

Next Month’s TBR

Most of my TBR is a lie. I tend to read what I want, when I want. I honestly just make these lists for the heck of it. Plus I have a lot of arcs now so might as well read them. But I then again I might not.

She, Myself, and I by Emma Young

There’s Someone in Your House by Stephanie Perkins

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvatter

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I said I would read those last two this month. Maybe in August this won’t be a lie.

Well…
