Dear reader,

Surprisingly, July has been a great month. It had its down times, I am still grieving but I also did a lot of things and had so much fun. I started reading again, I finally worked a lot on my thesis and am actually proud of what I’m doing and started going out again, well not partying but seeing my friends, going to the movies and to Disneyland. I also went back to London during July and went to YALC, and it was all a dream. I am very proud of all the progress I made because I was still sad and anxious but I can feel myself changing and improving nonetheless.

Without further ado, let’s go back to July and see what I read and loved!

Dear reader,

If you don’t know, I have a thing for quotes. Always had. As I have a great memory I tend to memorise as many as I can and it keeps me going. I even wrote down some on post-its and put them on my mirror to never forget some words. It always makes me happy to reread my favourite quotes and also makes me realise how powerful words are. That’s why I always share one whenever I post on Instagram – I love how words can make us feel better.

As quotes inspire me every day, I decided to share ten of my favourite ones – the ones which keep me motivated and help me on a daily basis when it comes to my mental health.

Dear reader,

The theme of this week is “books with sensory reading memories“, meaning books that are linked to very specific moments, places etc. As I tend to have a lot of memories with books I thought that it would be great to list some of those which were there during some very special moments in my life.

If you don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, it was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. A list of topics is up on that blog and every Tuesday you can create your own list, following the topic announced for the day, or just go with your imagination.

Without further ado, let’s dive into this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, which I organised in a chronological order!
