I don’t like how fast this years going. It feels like we’ve just gone ahead and skipped the months of February to May. I’m happy to report that June has been another good reading month for me. I’m not someone that can read over 10 books a month, my mood reading is to unpredictable, but considering how slumpy a reading year I’ve had so far, 5 books is a major success. Life has been unsurprisingly uneventful this month. All I’ve really done is work and read. Exciting times. I’ve been craving an adventure as of late but sadly I don’t think I’ll be having one until next year.
Here are the 5 books I read in the month of June. As you can see I’ve been on a Katie McGarry kick lately and her books are so addictive and swoon-worthy, you simply can’t resist them. Crash Into You was my favourite in the series and for those of you that have read it you’ll know why. 😉 After exhausting my collection of Katie McGarry books I had an urge to read another fantasy and A Crown of Wishes was just what I was looking for. It had a strong hate to love dynamic between our two main characters and the world/writing was so magical.

No specific goal this month. I’m hoping this reading mojo stays with me for a while now. I’m currently reading The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta and loving it so far. After that I might take a step back into fantasy but you never know with my mood.
Blog wise I think it’s high time I start writing up some of my discussion posts. I’ve had a list of ideas for over the past years or so but organising my thoughts into coherent sentences is a major challenge. I wish the computer would just rip them out of my jumbled head and write it for me. Nonetheless, I’m hoping I can power through my conundrums and write up something semi-coherent.
My TV binge sessions have hit an all time low. The only program I’m currently following is the third series of Poldark and all I cay is, SAVE DWIGHT! However, I’ve been on a roll with my films. My brother has been putting his projector to use and most evenings we find ourselves watching films on the big screen. It’s the only way to watch anything!
One highlight of July will be having my best friend from university come visit me. It’s been too long since we last saw each other and a major catch up is needed. I’m also hoping I can book my flights to Canada for next years trip, although I’m still debating how long I plan on going for, I think budgeting and costs will be the deciding matter on that front. Besides that it’ll be another slow month in the life of Lois.
June was a great reading month for me.
What was your highlight of June? Any goals for July?
