June Blog Wrap-Up

Hey you guys! Does anyone else always say it, "Heeeey you guuuuyyyysss!" in their heads? I can't be the only one. Cyber cookie for those who know the movie! *ahem* Moving on. It's me, Naomi! It is finally my turn to do a monthly wrap-up thingy (we're working on a better name...more on that later this week)! We're trying something a little new with how we present our wrap-up, and I'm not ashamed to say that we're borrowing some ideas from Refracted Light, so go ahead and send some blog love their way. They have a really snappy-looking blog, and it is our life's ambition to someday follow in their footsteps. Or something. I really don't know what I'm talking about right now.

There are a few other things we've got in the works. Melissa is mustering up something quite exciting for this week! It's going to be so awesome! I hope everyone gets a chance to see it! I've also got a little something rattling around my head, to which I've already alluded, and it's going to be the very first thing that is all me baby! I'm so jazzed! Well, Melissa will be a part of it too, but we'll just leave that bit for now so I can revel in my illustrious glory! Mwahahaha!

A bit much perhaps? Yeah... Well! Onward to our brand-new-looking Monthy Wrap-Up Thingy!

Read this month
(To see how I'm doing on my Reading Challenges, check it out HERE!)


Splintered by A. G. Howard - This was the May pick for my book club. I didn't finish it in time for the meeting, but I did finish it shortly thereafter. It was kind of dark and definitely different from what I was expecting... in a good way, of course. I can't wait to see what happens in book two!
Mick Harte Was Here by Barbara Park - A coworker gave this to me and told me I simply must read it. I read it on my breaks at work and just fell in love with it. It was definitely a quick, heartwarming story. I recommend it to anyone looking for a children's book about coping with the loss of a loved one.
Legacy by Molly Cochran - This book has made me want to read more witchy books. I'm so glad I finally got to read it!
Poison by Molly Cochran- I was lucky enough to take part in a blog tour for this book. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first, but I still liked it. Great new take on Arthurian Legend, too!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - I can never read this book too many times, I tell you. This was the June book club pick, to which I might have had a hand in making possible. Gah! This book is so good! I want to live inside this story forever. Is it too soon to read it again?
Inkheart (audiobook) by Cornelia Funke - I grabbed this audiobook to listen to on my way to work. I LOVE this series and the narrator does a great job.
The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo- I've been reading this book off and on the last week. It's really interesting and I'm sure I'll finish it soon. I'm so happy I've decided to start reading more children's books!
The Summer of No Regrets by Katherine Grace Bond - I just started this one, so we shall see how I like it!

To read


Now I'll be honest, with the exception of Blankets (it's our July book club pick), these are subject to change. I'm a mood reader, so who knows what I'll be wanting to read soon.


Read this month
The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #2)

Withering Tights by Louise Rennison - Seriously full of fabulosity and shenanigans. And took me all of two seconds to read! What a wonderful little lark! 
The Elite by Kiera Cass - Totally not what I thought it was going to be. I love it just for that! 
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer - Still getting to the end of this one. It's getting so good I just can't wait to finish it!
The Sea Of Monsters by Rick Riordan - We're reading this as a family just now, and my husband is having a good time with it. I've read it before; I'm re-reading it with my family before I finish the series where I left off. Even my almost 2-year-old daughter listens while we read in the car!

So there you have it! What do you think? Good? Bad? We'd like your input!

  1. I'm gonna be honest and say that one of the main reasons I clicked this post is because of the Goonies reference at the beginning...because literally every time I see hear/see/say "hey you guys!" I feel like doing a Sloth impression. I'm glad that I'm not the only one! Lol! Anyways, I loved Splintered and can't wait for the sequel! I also really need to get started on Born Wicked, because I've had it on my shelf for a while and it's just begging to be read!

    Happy reading! :)

    1. That's awesome! I do the same thing whenever I see that too. It's definitely one of the best movies of all time.

      Born Wicked has been calling my name for a while now, too. And Splintered was good. Have you seen the cover for book two?! Morpheus!

    2. Yay! I'm so glad I'm not the only one! Perhaps we should all start saying it out loud and see if it catches on huh? I feel as if I am missing something, as I don't seem to know about all the cool books! I better get reading I guess!
