June Monthly Wrap Up!

Hello everyone!  June has been a slow month for me in regarding reading books since I've only read 5 books this month, but the best thing about this month was that I was able to read some books from my ARC pile and I'm planning on doing the same for July!  I have also noticed that I only had one 5 star read this month, which is unusual since I usually have more 5 star reads in every month, but I guess the books this month have just been good.

  3. Omggg I'm SO excited for your July TBR!!! The Raven Boys is like my ultimate favourite book so I hope you enjoy it.😍 And I'm also a huge fan of Looking For Alaska and The Hate U Give.

  7. Yessss I loved Gone Girl, Dark Matter and the Hate U Give and I hope you enjoy them too! Have a lovely month ahead!

  8. Lio looks like a really fun book. 4.5 stars - very close to 5 so a good reading month!

  9. June wasn't that great for me either but you read a 5-start! Oh I hope you get to the Hate U give soon! IT SO GOOD!!! I should get "Hola! Let's Learn Spanish: Visit New Places and Make New Friends!" for my kids and see if they FINALLY learn to speak Spanish [since it's my first language!] :)

  10. I read Looking for Alaska and enjoyed it--it was my first John Green book. I also read and loved Caraval this year--it's one of my favorites so far. I can't wait to read THUG as I've only read 5 star reviews so far.

  11. "In a Dark Room" has such a scary cover! Thanks for the post!
