June Confessions

Well, this month certainly flew by. I didn't read as many books as I would have liked, but I don't mind as I have been so busy enjoying summer and taking my little guy to the beach. I am so excited for July...more summertime weather and beach days! 

Books Read in June:
1. The House of Hawthorne by Erika Robuck - 3.5 out of 5 stars
2.  Rook by Sharon Cameron - 3 out of 5 stars (Review to come)
3.  Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan - 3.5 out of 5 stars
4.  Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton - 3.5 out of 5 stars
5.  Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas - 4.5 out of 5 stars
6.  Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone - 3.5 out of 5 stars
7.  The Secret Life of Violet Grant by Beatriz Williams - 5 out of 5 stars (Review to come)
8.  Ross Poldark by Winston Graham - 4 out of 5 stars (Review to come)

Illusionarium by Heather Dixon and Trusting Liam by Molly McAdams - Check out my "It's Not You, It's Me" post as to why this book didn't work for me. 

1.  Favorite Book Read This Month: The Secret Life of Violet Grant by Beatriz Williams is my favorite book of the month. I love historical fiction and Williams writes such interesting characters. I can't wait to read her latest novel this summer as well. 

2.  Biggest Surprise: I thoroughly enjoyed Ross Poldark. If you like historical fiction, this book shouldn't be missed. I can see why it is so popular after all these years. Keep your eyes out for my review this month and also an amazing giveaway! 

3.  Biggest Disappointment: Rook by Sharon Cameron really didn't "wow" me. It ended up just being a "meh" kind of book for me. I was able to finish it, but I struggled. My review will be posted next week.

4.  Favorite Post: My 2015 Picks for Best Beach Reads and My Summer Reading List

5.  My Favorite Part of June: My family vacation was by far my favorite part of June. Lazy days at the beach will always be my favorite as well as spending more time with my family.   A perfect combination.

I hope you guys had a great June! Thanks for visiting,


  1. I will have to look for the novel Ross Poldark. I just caught up on episode one and I really it. Of course the star is Aidan Turner which doesn't hurt!

    1. I think you would really like the novel. It reminds me so much of Jane Austen, except from a guy's perspective. I agree...Aidan Turner isn't so bad. haha. He's pretty swoon worthy. :) I'm glad you are liking it! Thanks for visiting!

  2. GAH! I so want to read The Secret Life of Violet Grant! Why is my TBR list getting so long, Christina?!? I'm so ready for vacation next week; I may not talk to Jonathan the entire time - ha! Great reading month!

    1. I love Beatriz Williams' novels, so I definitely wasn't disappointed by Violet Grant...such a great story! haha. I try to get caught up on my reading during vacation as well. It's the best! Have a great day, Tara and thanks for visiting!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
