Bookish Happenings in July 2018

It’s quite a bit late this month (sorry!) but here are the “bookish happenings” for July 2018. Here I share with you awesome bookish events such as new releases, movie releases related to books, holidays, conferences, and other events. Obviously I’m not going to be able to cover everything, but if your reading palate is similar to mine, then hopefully you’ll find this information useful.

Release dates are for the book/movie in the United States, so it may not be accurate if you’re living in another country.
