June Wrap-up


I swear that there was no June this year. I really do think that’s what happened. Because, it went so fast!! It felt like the first half of the month was preparing for Portland, then I was in Portland, then I was working on stuff for my second, and final, year of grad school.

Basically, a lot has been going on!

Along with that, I’m very excited to announce that I’m an affiliate for Book of the Month’s brand new YA line! If you already have BotM, you have to make a new one. If you don’t, you can sign up and choose exclusively from five YA selections for $14.99 each month. Tomorrow they’re announcing their July choices, which I’ll post about.

You can go to our bio/home page and there’s a link that’s mine. What does that mean? If you sign up through it, I get $10. I’d love it if you all could if that’s something you can afford and are inclined towards since it does help this blogger out a bit. Or, you can click here to give it a look! The July choices are pretty damn good!

But, enough promo for this post. Onto what I read!

I read 30 books this month! I’m pretty proud of that number. Even more proud that my average rating was 3.8! May was a super low month, 2.9, so I’m happy that it went up and I did a better job of choosing what I read.

Below are links to my reviews with the ratings.

Reviews to post in July

  • If You See Her by Ania Ahlborn – 4.5/5
  • Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman – 4/5
  • Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley – 4/5

Thank you all for indulging my promo! I will be posting about that another time this month, just as a warning. I’m just really excited that BotM is taking this step and that they were amazing enough to let me be an affiliate.

    • Well, it’s kind of a long story. But, when I get off work or school or whatever, I read. (I also read at work when it’s slow!) I read and read and read. I also have multiple books that I’m reading at the same time — 3-5 usually. Plus, I’m not afraid to DNF and, unlike some people, I count DNFs in my total and rate them. If I cut out DNFs, it wouldn’t seem nearly as much.
