Monthly Book Round-Up: July

July was a bit more chaotic than expected, but I was still thrilled with my book progress! This month, I suddenly and officially started my new job as a Clinical Research Coordinator for an arm of the psychiatry department at a major Boston hospital. It’s meant that I’ve had (and will have) much less time to read, but I love the work I’m doing and the meaningful nature of the job makes it all worth it. But in case you are here to learn about books and NOT about my hectic life, here is a list of all the book I’ve read this month!

In total I read 5 ARCS and gave 8 books 5 stars!
