June 2021 Monthly Wrap-Up

Hello Lovely Readers!

Here is another monthly wrap-up! I say this every time but each month goes by so quickly.

June was filled with family visits and a lot of birthdays, which included my daughter’s 5th birthday! There hasn’t been anything else going on besides my husband doing summer school and he will be done this week so July is dedicated to family time before school starts once again in August.

My reading for the month was pretty consistent with other months from this year. I’ve been taking breaks every now and again from reading which helps to stay out of slumps. I have 8 arcs left since I did get more but I’m still knocking them out!

I’ve been playing videogames like usual too. Mostly it’s been World of Warcraft but also Mario Kart every now and then. It’s fun to play with my daughter and I’m glad we decided to get a Nintendo switch for her birthday. One day we will get Animal Crossing, haha.

We did watch Luca and Raya and the Last Dragon as a family. I think I liked Raya more but they aren’t in my top ten favorite Disney movies. I’d most likely give them a 3.8/5 stars.

That’s about it! Time to get on with the all of the bookstuff.

This month I managed to read 22 books, 1 manga, and listened to 4 audiobooks.

27 books in total!


My favorite book of the month was The Last Words We Said by Leah Scheier. It was so good! It had me crying but it was worth it.

My least favorite was A Spot of Trouble by Teri Wilson. It was just not my cup of tea and had too much petty drama that was meant to be funny.

    1. My daughter has been asking me for it, lol. It will most likely be a Christmas gift but maybe we will get it sooner.


    1. I have enjoyed a lot of books by Sarah KL Wilson. She is definitely a top indie author for me.
