Hello Everyone! Welcome back to my another wrap up post! The summer heat is on and It was extremely hot here. With temperatures soaring high, I’m trying my best to stay hydrated. Well, coming to the books, I had an average reading reading month, but I did enjoyed most of the reads and I’ve found another favorite of this year. I wish I could share my full thoughts! Unfortunately, I’m still in blogging hiatus, but I will return soon.

TV SHOWS WATCHED THIS MONTH
It’s Okay To Not Be Okay is a wonderful drama filled with heart touching emotions, family, drama, and romance. If you’re looking for a good romantic TV show that focus on mental disorders then you guys need to check this out. I loved the entire fairytale aspect of this series. It’s totally worth a watch!
THE K2 is a good action packed romance drama. The plot was engaging and I’m glad romance isn’t the major focus. It heavily centered around politics and political intrigue. If you aren’t into them, then better avoid it.
Blade of Secrets (Bladesmith #1)
by Tricia Levenseller
I love books that has great mix of adventure, friendship, action, and a dash of romance. This book fulfilled everything and I immensely enjoyed it!
BLURB: Eighteen-year-old Ziva prefers metal to people. She spends her days tucked away in her forge, safe from society and the anxiety it causes her, using her magical gift to craft unique weapons imbued with power.
Then Ziva receives a commission from a powerful warlord, and the result is a sword capable of stealing its victims secrets. A sword that can cut far deeper than the length of its blade. A sword with the strength to topple kingdoms. When Ziva learns of the warlord’s intentions to use the weapon to enslave all the world under her rule, she takes her sister and flees.
Joined by a distractingly handsome mercenary and a young scholar with extensive knowledge of
the world’s known magics, Ziva and her sister set out on a quest to keep the sword safe until they can find a worthy wielder or a way to destroy it entirely.
