Updates About My Life This Month:

I’m so pleased that I was able to read so many books and start two new features this month despite going on a week-long hiatus! I’ve had so much wonderful reading material to choose from thanks to ALA, and I’ve been enjoying reading outside as much as I can. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll see most of my reading has been done by the pool lately! Aside from going to Washington D.C., I’ve also been integrating more outdoor activities as the summer progresses, such as taking up hiking as a hobby and journeying to some lakes to enjoy swimming. In August I’m taking part in the ARC August challenge, so expect reviews of some exciting titles!

    • DIMPLIN’ IS EVERYTHING. Seriously, it’s one of the best contemporaries I’ve read all year! Everything Everything was pretty great too…I love when hyped books live up to the expectations we set for them! My Life Next Door was also really good, and I was simply expecting it to just be a fluffy beach read. While it does have its fluffy moments, it definitely has heavier plot points worked it that keep it balanced and kept me as a reader super invested in the outcome.

  1. Woohoo! Look at you already surpassing your Re-Read Challenge Goal — that’s awesome!! And I’m happy to see you loved The Royal We because it’s one of my favorites šŸ™‚ I love your Relationship Role Models post, and I can’t wait to see what couples you highlight in the future!
