June 2015 Recap

I usually post these on the weekends, but I am hoping you were out and about enjoying the Fourth and not reading blog posts! But it is a new week now ;)
What the crap happened to June?? Gone in a flash. Most of the month I felt pretty crappy which put a huge damper on all reading and blogging. My motivation completely vanished. Luckily, I had left myself pretty open book schedule-wise as I was anticipating a lot of INSPY reading and discussion. This last week of June however, the whole family has had a cold and I find myself wildly behind on reading and blogging. 

In June I got bookish mail left and right and was absolutely LOVING it! Anything better than bookish mail?? I think not. 

Hubby had his birthday at the beginning of the month, which is always a blast. We also celebrated our 6th anniversary. Hubby actually worked, but he bought me the BEST roses and we went hiking that weekend. Then there was Father's Day in which I totally failed per usual. And Hubby has been working on this deck building project forEVAH. It'll get done next summer...

I read ten books in June. To be fair, two books were incredibly short. One audiobook. Two count for my Flights of Fantasy Challenge. Two count for my 2015 Library Challenge. 

4 Stars:
Season of Wonder by Lisa T Bergren
Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
Siren's Fury by Mary Weber
Blur by Steven James

3.5 Stars:
Home to Chicory Lane by Deborah Raney

3 Stars:
Two Roads Home by Deborah Raney
A Heart's Betrayal by Colleen Coble
A March Bride by Rachel Hauck (audio)

2 Stars:
Summer's List by Anita Higman

Yeah...this is going to be the sad part. Last month I talked about a steady decline. Well...it continued in a drastic way. 


The Two Other Posts

We finished Parks and Rec and have found ourselves in a pit of depression. PIT (see what I did there??). We've restarted Doctor Who and just finished season two on the 30th. Yes, we STILL cried. Every time people, every time. 

I also started The 100 on Netflix. I saw some people talking about it on Twitter and went out on a limb. Its not the BEST show out there, but it sure has a lot of drama! 

Food seemed to be a major theme. Most importantly THIS and THESE.

And as ever kid things. Baby Girl loved 'Going on a Bear Hunt' so this seemed appropriate. 

And that was my June folks. I hope July slows down and I can at least be present for most of the days. Also, HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!


  1. That's a great amount of 4-star reads for a month. Actually, that's a great amount of reading period! *glares at woefully behind GR Challenge stats* I'm glad you liked Siren's Fury and I've been curious about Fortunately, the Milk. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

  2. Happy belated anniversary to you both and happy birthday to your hubby!
    Happy July reading!

  3. It helps that at least 2 of the 4 star books were for the INSPY awards :)
    Fortunately, the Milk should be added to your list straight away. It's short and has great illustrations. Plus, Gaiman :)

  4. Aw, thanks Freda! I've got great reads coming up in July :)

  5. Mary Weber is *kinda* good ;)
    I loved my June mail!!
