June 2017 Wrap Up

June 29, 2017 Meme 8

Oh dear, June is here. Winter has arrived (both in the sense of the season in Australia, and the fact that GoT returns very very soon). And the year is half over!! I’m not ready for 2017 to be so far along. Not at all.

Despite my personal feelings about time passing, it’s been a great month on the blog! Gotta love consistent posting. I don’t know how we’ve managed it, but I’m not going to question it. Especially since it includes a little follower giveaway among those posts ;D





This month’s been a bit rocky, not gonna lie. It started with me feeling super burnt out just from life in general. I was getting over uni, constantly working, barely getting time to breath. The good thing about that is that I gave myself a week of nights off instead of studying, and that meant I actually read!! You can see some of the stuff I read in the photo below. It’s been nice, but I have to stop slacking off now.

Another thing that helped pull me out of this slump of life (aside from an amazing supportive clinician at my shelter medicine rotation) is I’m finally doing equine stuff!! Just being in a barn full of horses as they much their hay makes me happy, so working with them has been a dream. I wish my knowledge of horse stuff would just return faster!


I haven’t bought any books this month because I’m so busy (this may change when I go to Bookfest on the weekend), but a couple of publishers did send me books, both of which are loveozya!

  • THE UNDERCURRENT by Paula Weston

In a reflection of the business of life, Alise didn’t get time to fully write out her segment. This past month she had a birthday, got a promotion to full-time and has basically been getting the hang of full time work-life balance slowly but surely.

      Reading a lot in a massive binge is the best thing! Good luck with your book blogging partner! They’re great but it is different for a while

      Meanwhile down here the novelty of snow at Christmas is so strange. I’m too used to spending it sweating non stop all day haha

      I don’t think I remember what relaxing is anymore. So much to do, so little time, and none of it is fun stuff.

    I can’t wait you’ve almost finished uni Bec! I feel like when we met, you had just started! CANNOt wait to read The Undercurrent. That’s a fine reading list Alise, I love Dark Days Club!

      It’s so close and I’m terrified. Has it really been that long since we met??? Jesus, it’s flown by!

    It sounds like a hectic month for the both of – I hope you guys have a calmer July! :)

    I really want to read Ruined, The Dark Days Club and Lord of Shadows. I have Eon on hold at the library so looking forward to that arriving!
