Farewell Summer: a Wrap-up

Who else is going back to school next week?

Yep, the summer is almost over, and I can barely recall what I have been doing these past three months. I've been studying, and listening to Stephen King's It. I've been going to the gym... oh, and I binge-watched Marvel's The Defenders. That's quite an accomplishment, wouldn't you say?

Most importantly, I've been reading a lot. I read a total of eleven books. I wrote six book reviews, and one movie review. I'll get to the list very soon, but first, an announcement.

I officially have a Bookstagram account now! It's called Books on Fire, and it's basically my personal Instagram account that I made public. I also deleted all the selfies, and other private stuff. I'm posting almost every day. Book hauls, pretty pictures of books and Star Wars coffee mugs, it's all there. You can follow me there on @dinaratengri.

And now to the wrap-up!

Well, this sums up my summer of 2017. How did you spend yours?
