Rewinding June

I've been falling behind on reading and blogging, but IN MY DEFENSE I was finishing school, moving, and bingeing shows on Netflix (Fullmetal Alchemist and Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries). So. But I'm working on getting back in the groove.

Books Read

Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell
The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash
Whatever Life Throws at You by Julie Cross
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
With Malice by Eileen Cook


With Malice by Eileen Cook: The ending made this underwhelming.
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab: Very interesting concept, but I didn't looove it.

Book of the Month

I'll be completely honest: I didn't love anything I read in June (though I really liked some!). I'm going to go with The Long Game because it was the book that I reacted the most to (if you've read it you know exactly what I mean). But it's not because I loved it--it actually kind of pissed me off.

Book Haul

Because of moving and the majority of my books being put into storage, I was unfortunately unable to film a proper book haul this month. HOWEVER. I do have pictures of my two big hauls: one from a Goodwill sale and one from, of all places, Dollar Tree.

And thanks to Riveted Lit, The Novl, Kerri Maniscalco, and Kathryn Ormsbee for ARCs of Holding Up the Universe, And the Trees Crept In, Stalking Jack the Ripper, and The Doorway and the Deep, respectively.

Tis the month for blog tours! Those for The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love (wherein I share my review), Lucky Few (wherein I match my look to the book), and The Long Game (wherein Jennifer Lynn Barnes talks about what it takes to write a thriller) stopped by. I also wrote up a discussion post about series that never end, and I shared my favorite books this year so far and their aesthetics.


I went to the Boldly Bookish Tour and met Tara Altebrando, Tiffany Schmidt, and (finally) Jennifer Lynn Barnes!

Aaand I GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE! (College of Arts and Humanities, Bachelors in Professional and Creative Writing.) (I should be wearing honors and have graduated magna cum laude don't even get me started.)

How was your June?
