July Wrap Up

Blog Features & HeadersIn my personal life…

School starts this week which means I’m at residency. I’m actually sitting in the airport waiting for my currently delayed flight, but whatever. A lot of things are getting done for the wedding! Kiel picked out his tux and styles for his groomsmen, our gift for our guests came in, my shoes came in. It’s getting real everybody!

In my writing life…

I made it jut a little over halfway through a rewrite of my old MS and about 10k of the way through a new piece. I’ve also started a new middle grade MS that I’m hoping to pursue alongside my newer YA piece this semester. We’ll see how long that lasts since I’m getting hitched halfway through the semester.

In my reading life…

I’ve definitely had a slow month reading wise. I’m picking up more middle grade since I want to explore that more and hone in a good middle grade voice.

ARCs I’ve Requested/Been Approved For

On the blog…

I’ve already started posting less since school is back in swing. But I’ve tried to remain active for comments and likes since that’s what helps keep me visible. I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve done a book tag or a weekly other than Bring Your Own Book (which is fun so you guys should comment so I can tag you!) and I feel like I should stock up.

My July Reviews


Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

The Gallery of Unfinished Girls by Lauren Karcz


By J. M. Tuckerman

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.

  1. I love the cover of Little Monsters! Hopefully you’ll enjoy the ARCs and other middle grade books! I loved the Charlie Bone series when I was younger, it was Harry Potter-esque 🙂
