June/July Confessions

This has been an incredible summer for me.  I recently had a baby (DYLAN!) and have been busy taking care of him and enjoying every moment.  I spent a lot of June at the shore soaking up as much sun as possible and reading some great books.  Here are the books I read in June and July:

Books Read in June and July:
1.  Star Shack by Lila Castle (3.5 stars)
2.  Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel (3 stars)
3.  Silence (Hush, Hush #3) by Becca Fitzpatrick (4 stars)
4.  My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick (4 stars)
5.  Burn for Burn by Jenny Han by Siobhan Vivian (4 stars)
6.  Wallflower in Bloom by Claire Cook (3.5 stars)
7.  Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins (4.5 stars)
8.  Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson (4.5 stars)
9.  Forgotten by Cat Patrick (4 stars)
10.  Underworld (Abandon #2) by Meg Cabot (3.5 stars)
11.  Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols (4 stars) - Review to come!

June/July Top Five:

1.  Favorite Book:  Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson- I found this book to be such a nice blend of a serious, yet perfect for summertime read.

2.  Biggest Surprise: I would have to say that Sweet Evil took me by surprise.  I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.  

3.  Biggest Letdown:  Dearly, Departed didn't work for me.  I guess I am just NOT a fan of zombies.

4.  Favorite Post: Taking a mini vacation at the beach

5.  Favorite Part of June/July: The birth of my son!

My posts are going to be rather sporadic for sometime until I get used to my new schedule as a mom, but I'll be back before you know it!


  1. Second Chance Summer is definitely one of my fave reads of the summer. Can't wait to read whatever Morgan Matson writes next! :)

  2. Yay! I'm happy that you had a great month! :) My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick is on my To Be Read pile & I'm looking forward to reading it. It just looks and sounds super cute. :)


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
