|I thought my bookshelves would make a good button!|
I know I said I would be a posting machine once school got out, and while I have definitely been reading and relaxing, I haven't gotten around to posting. I felt guilty for a little bit, but then I remembered that it's my blog, and it's okay.
That being said, June is at an end. And just like I promised myself I wouldn't look at anything school related until July, I also let myself have the first 2 weeks of summer vacation to myself. However, I did clean, a lot, and I'm currently in the process of culling my bookshelves and reorganizing (I think I have finally reach the point where I know I need to get rid of things).
In any case, I thought that a monthly roundup of my finished books and random favorites would be fun, so here we are.
Let's start this month with the reads, shall we?
In the month of June, I read 9 books, which is pretty good considering we didn't get out of school until June 18, and 3 of those books were read over the last 4 days. In any case, I didn't read all that diversely, but I did read some great books.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling
Fables Volumes 5-8 by Bill Willingham
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy by Laini Taylor
For next month, I definitely need to read a few classics. I think first up will be a Bronte, and probably the Wharton I started over the winter. I also want to finish the Mistborn trilogy, as I read the first one back in May. We shall see.
And now for the randoms....
I thought it would be fun to talk about some other randoms from the month-things I've been loving, favorite moments, and more.
And of course, lots of shenanigans with the husband. This picture is from the Mumford and Sons concert we went to earlier in the month. We also have been hitting up some local brewers, as Matt is really into craft beer (me, not so much). We've also been going to the gym, cooking dinner and trying new recipes, and playing Mario Kart. I'm sure the happy period of being able to do things will come to an end when he gets sick of me being around all the time, but I'll enjoy it for now. :)
I hope you all had a lovely June! Bring it on July!
