June Confessions

Who doesn't love the month of June? It always holds such promise.  For me, it's the start of summer and the end of another school year. It means spending more time outside and of course, going to the beach.   I always cringe when I see the end of June, because I know that means summer is already starting to slip by.  Before I know it, it will be August.  But for now, I am going to enjoy and savor each and every moment.

Books Read in June:
1)  Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris
2)  Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie V. Rigler
3)  Spells (Wings #2) by Aprilynne Pike
4)  The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
5)  Rumors (Luxe #2) by Anna Godbersen
6)  Envy (Luxe #3) by Anna Godbersen
7)  Captivate (Need #2) by Carrie Jones
8)  Splendor (Luxe #4) by Anna Godbersen
9)  It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han (Review to come this week!)

My June Top Five:

1)  Favorite Book:  The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

2)  Biggest Let Down: Captivate by Carrie Jones

3)  Biggest Surprise:  Spells by Aprilynne Pike

4)  Favorite Post:  The Ultimate Beach Reads

5)  Favorite Part of June:  Visiting New York City and the birth of my best friend's twins!

On a final note, in early July I will be donating to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation through the program called Reading For a Cure.  I am donating money towards the cause based on how many books I've read  from January to the end of June.  I love donating to charities and paying it forward. This is truly a worthy cause. Please check it!


  1. I love monthy recap posts. I should start doing that, too. If I'd done one for June, Spells would've been my "biggest surprise" pick as well. And guess what? It's Not Summer Without You finally came into the library for me! Yay! I look forward to reading it and your review!

  2. Amazing job reading so much books last month. :) And visiting New York is on my list to do. :)

  3. Kris and Nina- Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!
