I’m having a hard time believing it’s already July; since quarantine started, everything has blended together into one long expanse of monotonous social distancing. March feels like it was simultaneously last week and five years ago. I thought writing a monthly wrap-up would help break up the Groundhog Day feeling, so here’s a little overview of what I read and blogged about this month!

Unpopular opinion: I LOVE analyzing books in English class. Hear me out! English teachers definitely have a propensity to read a little too deeply into a text- arguably putting more thought into analyzing a book’s meaning than the original author, but I think there’s real value in interpreting the message of a book for yourself, even if you go a little overboard with symbolism.

My incurable mystery addiction continues! I can barely put into words how much I LOVED this book.
