Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2022

July 2022 Wrap-Up

 

I cannot believe it’s Blaugust already! Not only does it mean it’s past time for me to write my July wrap-up, but it also means the year is winding down and I really need to get some reading done to meet that pesky Goodreads challenge. Forever asking myself why I can’t be the person I thought I was when I set that challenge. Anyways, let’s get into what I was up to in July 2022!

 

Wrap-up: games

 

 

The three games I played in the month of July were Fire Emblem Warriors : Three Hopes, Animal Crossing : New Horizons, and the early access of Ghost Watchers. I did get back on Elder Scrolls Online for what amounted to a hot minute, did some crafting, got overwhelmed and logged off. I also played some games of Dead by Daylight and Fortnite, as per usual.

 

Fire Emblem Warriors : Three Hopes

In July, I finished my first playthrough of Fire Emblem Warriors : Three Hopes. I completed my Golden Wildfire playthrough, and am in Part II of the game in my Blue Lions playthrough. In this second playthrough, I’m definitely going to make sure I don’t miss out on recruiting Byleth and seeing the secret ending, which unfortunately is exactly what I did on my first playthrough. After I beat Blue Lions, I will definitely follow up with the Black Eagles playthrough and then I might even go back and replay Three Houses and restart and complete by Golden Deer playthrough.

 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

After seven months since I last returned to Animal Crossing, I have once more returned to this charming and wholesome game. How I can easily manage to get addicted to this game time and time again is really a testament to its enduring magic. I’m redoing my whole house, my island, and of course, procrastinating on these things by designing vacation homes constantly.

 

Ghost Watchers

My lovely friend Ash brought this Early Access paranormal investigation game to my attention. Unfortunately, though I found that this new game did some things better than Phasmophobia (like actually ridding the building of its haunter), I found it to be a lot slower paced than the game that obviously inspired it and sadly haven’t felt like playing it beyond the first time I tried it. If you’re a fan of this genre though, its definitely worth checking out for the better graphics, scarier entities, and new gadgets.

 

wrap-up: movies and tv shows

I really didn’t get around to watching anything in July, after the amazing months of May and June with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Stranger Things. I have a whole list of K-Dramas I’ve been wanting to watch and hoping to get to them in the month of August.

 

Wrap-up: Books

I did a little better in July with reading than I did in June, though I feel like saying that is cheating, as some of the books were a lot shorter. After all, The Latch Key is an incredibly short novella about the male lead from Half a Soul. I only managed to write reviews for three of the novels I read this month, most likely due to the sheer struggle of writing my Blade Breaker review, which you can check out below:

The jury is out on if I will get around to writing reviews for The Stardust Thief and Longshadow on top of writing my posts for Blaugust 2022. I really had fun reading both of these books and hope I can get around to reviewing them.

 

Wrap-up: webtoons

 

In July, I have really only been keeping up with three weekly-updating webtoons, Lore Olympus, Men of the Harem, and How to Be a Dragon.  I hope to eventually get back to other webtoons I was reading and to start following them again, but there’s only so many hours in the day.

  1. I have to admit, I want to play Animal Crossing SO badly. But I can’t let myself because I know I’ll get completely addicted to it.

    • You are smart. I thought I was finished with Animal Crossing? But it clearly wasn’t finished with me ? my Goodreads challenge is suffering

  2. ludollama

    Oooh those Olivia Atwater books looks good. I’m adding them to my list – will see if my library has them!

  3. ACNH is honestly my comfort game! I didn’t play it for so long because I burned out in late 2020 and didn’t return to my island until this year. Now I just enjoy playing occasionally and trying to figure out how to Get Good at terraforming my island haha.

    • It is just so wholesome and fun! I feel this because I spent a huge amount of time terraforming yesterday and it’s literally such a frustrating thing ?

        • Oh my gosh, I am the same exact way! And then I wish I hadn’t changed things in the first place. I try to use inspiration pictures but I always think the inspiration is better than what I actually accomplish too, haha.
