June 2020 Wrap-Up | The Awkward Book Blogger


I can’t believe June is already gone and over! It feels like just last week May was ending. I guess being super busy and in quarantine doesn’t help with the whole “days blending together” thing.

ACOTAR #4 Title Reveal


Thank you for the support!



Occasionally, someone will give my blog lots of love. I know on Instagram people have the practice of thanking that person on their story, but there was no convenient way of doing that on a blog. That’s why I thought I’d add this section to my monthly wrap-up. Thank you, Kira, for the extra support!


Life Update

I have felt a serious decline in motivation and energy this month. I started my summer classes, and let me tell you, nine hours (three classes) is a lot to handle. For those of you who are taking classes in the US and your university offers Summer I and Summer II classes, N E V E R take nine hours at once. It is A LOT. I don’t care how much you think you can do it. Don’t burn yourself out. It is not worth it. To put it into perspective, a normal semester is around 15 weeks, and on average students take 12-15 hours per semester. One summer session is 5 weeks. That means you are cramming 15 weeks worth of material in a third of the usual time. Multiply that by 3, and now you get my drift. It would be like taking 27 hours (9 classes) in one semester. That is twice the amount that is recommended for students. It is not fun, my dude. Not fun at all.

On the bright side, by the time this is posted, I’ll have only two weeks left before I can enjoy my summer break again.

Other than being extra tired these days, nothing has been happening in my personal life. Still hanging in there, as usual. Hope you guys are doing okay as well! Hopefully July will be less rough than June….


Until next time….

      Skyward is great, so far! I’ve heard nothing but great things about it, and now I can see why! I can’t wait to get to the sequel.

      I hope you have a wonderful July too! Thanks for stopping by ❤

    I also can’t believe June is already over – where is all this time going?? I read your review of Arch enemies (loved it!) and I adore Marissa Meyer so I hope you enjoy the final book in the trilogy I couldn’t put it down. Also, hope you have a fantastic month and I look forward to reading more of your reviews 🙂

      Thank you for the kind words! They really made my day ❤ Also, I think time is blending together for all of us right now XD

      Supernova is up there on the top of my TBR right now! I'm going to start it once I finish the books I'm currently reading….

      I hope July treats you well, and thanks for stopping by!
