June Monthly Wrap Up (2019)

Off the Blog:

Hey everyone! Man, June was a fantastic month! We celebrated my dad's birthday and we got him a lot of awesome movies which included "Aquaman," "The Meg" and "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle!"  I really enjoyed watching "Aquaman" and "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" was funny, although I still enjoyed the original movie more.  I also watched "Men in Black: International" in theaters and I really liked that movie!  Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson were awesome in that movie!

On the Blog:

I had another good reading month!  This time I read over five books (which I'm really happy about) and I had started reading "Illuminae" and I'm really enjoying it so far!  I can't wait to dive into "The Cruel Prince," "Our Dark Duet" and "Gemina" soon!  I also had a good month on Twitter as I'm posting the links for my book reviews over there and I'm still setting up my PayPal money pool!
