Well hello July and the second half of 2021. I’m starting this second half of the year with a brand new reading experience… a Kindle Paperwhite! Lol. A bit over-dramatic but I absolutely love it so far. It was a birthday present from my husband. It’s so small and easy to hold and a much better pre-bedtime reading experience than through the Kindle app on my phone. What took me so long to get one?!
This is my last week of work before a four week break. I’m so looking forward to it. I’m even excited about a couple items to clear off my desk before the end of the week. The boys are already enjoying their vacation and spent the last week visiting my parents. They tried to wrangle an extra week… really, they’re trying to get away from my schedule for them. Lol. At least they’re not providing too much resistance to reading time and have already selected their next books.
On that note, June’s reading list came in at 7 books. It was a busy month and I spent the last few days catching up on some teaching workshops and doing more non-fiction reading for those. June’s 7 were mostly romance and cozy mystery. A touch of Don Quixote and I started on another romance book written in Spanish.
Here’s what I read in June.
The Cozy Mysteries were Castaways and Longer Days and Beauty Expos Are Murder. There were two contemporary romance novels in The Fire God Tour and The Romeo Arrangement. One gorgeous historical romance, The Marquess Next Door and two contemporary drama/ romance in A Sumer Wedding for the Cornish Midwife and The Day That Changed Everything (How Not to Be a Loser).
Two of these books came via my Kindle Unlimited subscription; one was from the Netgalley collection; and four were for blog tours.
I’m adding just 5 to my TBR for this month as I don’t know yet how much I’ll have going on and want to leave space to be picky. I have two blog tours, one NetGalley and that Spanish novel to finish. Here’s the plan…
Solstice Spirits by Erin Johnson
Princess and Country by Emmanuelle Snow
Perfecto Para Tí by Kate Perry
Mrs. Rochester’s Ghost by Lindsay Marcott
Bars and Boxcars by Trixie Silvertale
