June Confessions

Oh, man. How is June already over? I can't believe July is here already. I had high hopes to read alllllll the beach reads this month, but that didn't happen. I did spend one glorious weekend at the beach with my family and I did do some fantastic, albeit brief, patio reading, which you guys know is my absolute favorite.  Here's what I read this month:

Books Read in June:
1.  The Summer I Met Jack by Michelle Gable - Adult Historical Fiction - 4 out of 5 stars
2.  The High Season by Judy Blundell - Adult Fiction - 3.5 out of 5 stars
3.  Little Do We Know by Tamara Ireland Stone - YA Realistic Fiction - 3.5 out of 5 stars
4.  Shadow of Night (All Souls #2) by Deborah Harkness - Adult Fiction - 3 out of 5 stars
5.  Boardwalk Summer by Meredith Jaeger - Adult Fiction - 3.5 out of 5 stars (Review to come!)

1.  Favorite Book:  Unforunately, I wasn't "WOWed" by any book in particular. I read a lot of entertaining books and some books that were just m-e-h.  My favorite book of the month is The Summer I Met Jack by Michelle Gable. It combined two of my favorite things: historical fiction with a beachy vibe (part of it takes place in Hyannisport) and the Kennedy family. 

2.  Biggest DisappointmentShadow of Night, book two in the All Souls series, didn't impress me. At all. I stuck with it, because I loved A Discovery of Witches so much, but this book just left me feeling flat. 

3.  Biggest Surprise: Little Do We Know made me think about faith and friendship more than I thought it would! Stone really knows how to write about issues without it being overly preachy.  

4.  Favorite Post: What I'm Reading Next 

5.  Favorite Part of June: My weekend getaway with my family to Cape May, NJ was hands down the best part of June. I love spending the day at the beach with my kids. Now if only I could crack open a book there!

Things I Am Loving:
 Kohr Brothers Custard
Exploring tide pools
Yankee Candle's Meyer Lemon 
Scott Hawaii flip flops
American Woman (TV show)
Southern Charm (TV show)

Now onto July. Can we agree to slow down the summer now? What's the best book you read this month? Did any disappoint you? What are you loving? Let me know in the comments.


  1. Oh, I miss Cape May! I haven't been there in years. My sister goes every summer, though. I love Kohr Brothers custard! Hope you have some fabulous July reads.

    1. Thanks, Angela! You should come to CM sometime! It's probably one of the most relaxing Jersey Shore beach towns. Thanks for visiting!

  2. I’m glad you had a good vacation. I badly need one of those. Have a great July!

    1. I hear you! It was just a long weekend, but very nice to get away. Thanks for dropping by, AJ.

  3. I loved your Cape May pics. It looks like a beautiful place to vacation. I cannot believe it is July. This week went by in a blink. Happy reading!

    1. Thanks, Natalie! I know! The summer needs to slow down now! I hope you are enjoying your time off! Thanks for visiting.


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
