JULY WRAP UP | A Wonderful, Terrible Month ft. More books by Asian authors!

July was a wonderful, terrible month. Tell me I’m not alone.

School has reached a tyrannical, dictatorial level, and yet my sanity still remains (perhaps because it was already whittled down to none in the first place) and I’ve found many incredible books by Asian authors especially!
