Tomorrow is July?

Wow, it's hard to believe July will be here tomorrow!
Although, this month went kind of slow after school let out, which was the 5th.
I feel like I've been off forever.
Anyone else feel like that? Or did June go fast for you?

I also feel like July is going to go very, very slow for me. Mostly because I have nothing to do. I have dance twice a week, which is one thing to keep me busy, thank God.
I'm visiting the college of my dreams on July 6th. I visited last summer and loved it, so hopefully I'll still love it this summer too.
My major has changed since then...
Then I MAY be going to Ocean City for a few days, even though it's more like Ocean Shitty to me. I don't like that place very much, but hey, it's a beach. 
Something to do. Somewhere to be. So hey, I'm up for it.

And I'm starting a babysitting job on July 15th... and I'll, thank goodness, be making some money from that. And that's also something to do.

I need money because yesterday I spent every single dollar in my wallet.
And now I'm completely broke. 
I haven't been completely broke in a long time.
I need my May paycheck from dance.. now.

You guys know what I spent my last $21 dollars on?
Then, August is going to fly by. I'm going to Myrtle Beach and North Carolina from August 4th to the 14th. Then, after that I have like 2 weeks and then school starts.
I'll be spending my 17th birthday in school as my first day as a senior.
I think I already know the outfit I'm wearing. 
I'm obsessed with clothes/fashion. 

On another note, I'm trying to read a lot of books this summer. Specifically in July, since it's going to be a long and boring month. 
I read 14 books last summer. This summer I am trying to top that. 

In June I read 4 books, well, four and a half if you count one I can no longer read because it expired online and I was too late. 
Including Stunning (Pretty Little Liars #11) By Sarah Shepard, The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2) by Richelle Mead, Paper Towns by John Green, and Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins. 
And well half of When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle. 

In July I'm trying to read a lot more...
Right now I'm currently reading This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen. I'm not liking it at all so far. So, hopefully that will get better.
Next, I'm going to be reading Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. It seems amazing and the cover is beautiful, if you look over there on my "Up Next" section, you can see it. I tried to read her other book Amy And Roger's Epic Detour but the first 80 pages didn't catch my attention, and it was during a really tough time at school when I started it, so I never had time to read it, and then I just put it down. Hopefully I'll continue it at a later date this summer. 
But, I'm really excited about Second Chance Summer. It seems way better. 

There's also some other books I'm very excited about reading in July..

Those are the four contemporary ones I plan to read this month.
Then, I kinda just randomly bought this one...

I don't know how I'm going to like it. I hope I do some, or I'll have wasted my money. I know it's a trilogy, along with The Summer I Turned Pretty, and if I don't like those two books I'm not reading the ones after them. 
When I finish all these it'll leave me at 11 books read. Hopefully I can fit more books in July. I'll need to read at least 4 or 5 in August. I think I can do that. Most likely more. 
It's going to be a great summer of reading! 
What are you reading this summer? Any of these books? If you've read any of these, what did you think of them?
Have any reading goals?
Let me know in the comments!
Happy July!

Oh I love This Lullaby! How far done are you with it? It's one of my favorite Sarah Dessen books... the ending is really bittersweet. :)

I've been crazy with softball, and writing, so I haven't gotten too much reading done. I'm kind of hoping to polish up my novel before school starts. But whatever.
