Taking a look back at what happened in the month of July.
Gen’s Life Happenings
- July has been the month of going to beaches. I’ve been a tourist in my own Island because I had never visited the beaches I went to. Everything was beautiful! Forget traveling to Europe, I’m staying in PR and going to all these gorgeous places.
- Even though I haven’t been up to date with blogging or visiting blogs, taking the break I needed was great. It wasn’t a full break since I was around but just going out with friends all the time and seeing my boyfriend definitely helped so I’m happy to have my mojo back!
Books Gen Read
I read 17 books this month! Only 16 are featured because Micalea Smeltzer’s new book When Stars Collide‘s cover releases this week. I had a really good reading month. There were lots of 4 stars with 1 or 2 5 stars (still deciding if I should bump Swear on this Life‘s rating).

Gen’s Memorable Mentions
Swear on this Life was beautiful! I read 82% of the book in one sitting! I was sleepy so I ended up reserving the rest for when I woke up. P.S. I Like You was such a cute and feel-good story. It’s my favorite by Kasie West <3 Out of Bounds was HOT! Hallelujah for all that hotness and sexiness and steaminess.
Gen’s Crush of the Month
Erik is a god. He’s a gymnast that’s totally ripped. I love his passion and I love how sexy and dirty this guy can get!
