Happy Sunday y’all! I cannot believe that it is already July. Where is this year going?! And Summer please SLOW DOWN!!! We have had a lazy, fun summer so far and I’m enjoying having little man at home. I do not want to send him back to school in 6 weeks ? June was busy but fun. We had something planned every weekend and were on the move during the week as well. Little man is participating in an online summer reading program geared towards helping him learn to read. We’ve just finished the second unit and I’m so impressed with how well he is doing. He is reading these Level 1 and 2 readers with little to no help AND he wants more which makes this mama’s inner bookworm squee!

Reading wise I think I’ve finally found my mojo again. I read 10 books this month. That’s still below my average of 12-15 but I’m getting there. I reviewed 12 books and still have several to review from my blogging break earlier this year. And don’t get me started on all the books I picked up at UTOPiAcon last weekend. I may or may not have lost my brain while meeting all those fabulous authors and picked up *cough* 70 *cough* books. I’ve got a lot of reading to do ?

Favorite June Read

Book Cover for "The Ghost of You and Me" by Kelly Oram

Honestly, hands down The Ghost of You and Me by Kelly Oram was my favorite. I love Kelly’s writing style and ability to draw the reader in. She is a fantastic storyteller and this book has all the feels!

Favorite June Quote

He knew what he was doing. He had to know. No one got to be two hundred fifty years old without learning how to make drinking coffee look pornographic.

This Week’s Book Fix

What are you looking forward to in July?

July is a special month for us. It’s our anniversary month. This year we will be celebrating 11 years of marriage ❤️ I love him more every year! He has taken a week of vacation for our anniversary and we plan to spend some time in the mountains with little man. We also have honey do lists to complete, a few DIY projects around our new home. I’ll share pics later this month when (really I should say IF) we get them done.

Reading wise, I have some great ARCs to read and a few blog tours to prep for. I am also in the process of creating a Throne of Glass reading group before Tower of Dawn hits shelves in September. Watch the Facebook page for more info on that.

What was your favorite read in June? Anything you are looking forward to in July? Is anyone going on vaca? Share below

  1. I think my favourite June read would be between the Extinction Horizon apocalypse series and the first two Game of Thrones novels. July is going to be all new authors to try which is pretty excing! Good to see that your kid is going to be a book addict!

  2. I don’t think I had a fave read, I read a lot of good stuff. Maybe the one I just finished Justice Calling. It was really good. Happy reading with all those great looking books.

  3. Awe, I use to feel the same and wanted summer vacation with the kiddos to last forever, but we were all ready by the time the first week of school rolled around. You had an awesome month and I hope July is a good one!

    • Thank you! I did! I didn’t realize there were more. JLA had shared it and it’s one of hers I haven’t read yet. Hope you have a great week ?
