I’m SO GLAD that this month is over! || June Wrap Up

Monthly Wrap Up Green

My internet wasn’t working over the weekend, so I couldn’t post this earlier and that annoyed me a lot (since I only had 1 post last week instead of 2). It wasn’t something I could help, but it still bothered me. Moving on from that!

June was such a busy month for me! It was the last month of university before the summer break, so that means I had a ton of exams and other things to do. I’m just so happy that that is over now! I’m so exhausted, but also happy as I have passed most of my exams (for some others I haven’t gotten the results yet).

Sadly it’s not over for me yet. As I do have two exams in July (this week that is) and I need to turn in two papers. But at least I don’t have any classes and can concentrate on studying and writing. Hopefully these things will go well as well! And hopefully the weather isn’t going to be too bad, I really don’t like the heat.

I don’t have much to say about June, mostly because I spent the whole month studying and not doing much else. It was a very busy month, but a boring one as well.


Wrap Up

I managed to read 2 books in June and I’m very pleased about that. Honestly I have no idea how I even managed to squeeze them in, when I had so many other things to do. (Okay, one I had to read for class, so I had to read it.) I’m also 4 books AHEAD of my Goodreads reading challenge, which makes me very happy!

Random other things that I read:

  • Poetry and short stories. – They were also for the exam, but from different authors and collections. So I really can’t count them and I don’t feel like talking about each individually. (That would require a lot of work, as there were many.)
  • Other books that I have started. – But I haven’t finished them yet, so we will talk about them in the future (once I actually read them).
  • Some cute fanfiction. – I just needed something cute and lighthearted in my life. Especially when I wasn’t feeling the best during the month. (I mostly read anime fanfiction, if you were wondering.)
Now, lets get into the actual books that I read in June!

Stephen KingPet Sematary by Stephen King

4.5 out of 5 stars

 

Wow. This book was sooo good! I didn’t actually read the synopsis for this book before reading it. Simply because I already know that I enjoy Stephen King’s books (he is one of my favourite authors). So this book turned out to be a lot different than I thought it would be. And I don’t mean that in a bad way.

This book was shocking in many aspects. The story took turns I didn’t expect it would. This book wasn’t gory, like many of King’s books can be, rather it was creepy and unsettling. The atmosphere within this book was fantastic. I highly recommend this book for everyone who enjoys reading horror! (And especially Stephen King.)


8852Macbeth by William Shakespeare

3 out of 5 stars

So this is the book, or rather play, that I had to read for class. It’s been a really long time since I have read one of Shakespeare’s plays and Macbeth was one I wanted to read for ages. (So I didn’t mind that we had to read it for class.)

It was an interesting play, with fascinating characters. I can see why so many people consider this to be their favourite Shakespeare plays. Sadly it just wasn’t mine. I just had some problems with it and things happened that bothered me. (I don’t want to go into details, I have talked about it in class and on an exam already.) My favourite is still Hamlet, if you were wondering about that. I’m still glad that I read this play and the discussions in class were great!


Wrap Up

This month I haven’t posted as much as I wanted to. Simply because I had no time, as I was very busy with university and other life stuff (which I have already mentioned in the beginning). I’m just happy that I managed to post at least something, plus it does help that I’m very proud of all the posts I made in June!

  1. I am going to keep my fingers crossed you passed ALL your exams, because no one deserves the stress of having to retake exams and you also have enough to do with the things still left for July. I hate the heat too 😦 it’s just too much. Makes me want to lie in bed like a potato and not move. So I am feeling for you big time.

    1. Thank you! 😀 I passed nearly all of them. Or rather I only failed one, which I already expected so everything is great! The heat is the worst. 😦 Same! When it’s hot I never feel like doing anything. And then I get frustrated with myself, which really isn’t the best combination. Hopefully the summer will get cooler soon, so that both of us can enjoy it more! 🙂

  3. The buildup to summer break is one of the best feelings in the world 😆 Congrats on passing the majority of exams, and I hope you did well on your remaining ones! I actually had to read Macbeth for my English Literature class a few months ago, and it’s still wonderful to now understand all the Macbeth references that people make 😊

    I hope your summer has been wonderful thus far! I enjoyed reading your post! 😊
