June Rewind & Review

Hosted by Bookshelvers Anonymous
After May, I think June was designated "chill time" in the blogosphere for me. Excluding the awesome book event I went to, I really cut back on blogging related things since life kicked up a notch with work and school and so much other stuff that it's been a blur. Leaving from where I left off last Rewind & Review (remember, I extended May's a little into June), here's what has been happening.

My Reviews
  • The Good, the Meh, and the DNF (three mini reviews with different reactions to them)
  • you can see, I didn't review a lot in June (but don't forget that I did have another that was attached to May's!), but I'm determined to make that up in July. 
My Meme Posts
Stuff I Was Given
  • OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Hydu (Simon Pulse via Edelweiss)
  • Gift card from Jen because although I was doing it as a gift, she still wanted to pay me back for getting her a signed Siege & Storm at the Fierce Reads tour. She is SO incredibly sweet, you have no idea. If you have never talked to her or read her blog, you are missing out in life, my friend.

Stuff I Bought 

A Few of My Favorite Blog Moments
  • Author Jessica Brody and I talked quite a bit before I met her at the Fierce Reads event...
  • ...where we hugged, chatted, and became absolute best friends...
  • ...and it's where I met LEIGH BARDUGO and got signed copies and took pictures with all the authors and I got to squeal about it all in my recap
  • Once again, really sweet bloggers on Twitter
  • And my not so favorite: being overwhelmingly busy, but that will hopefully change soon!
I've had better Junes, but this one wasn't exactly horrible...just more of a frustrating blur. I'm expecting big things with July, especially with it holding my birthday! 

Hope you all have a lovely July!


  1. I had *just* been looking up OCD Love Story & thinking about how interesting it sounded, and it's awesome that you got a signed copy of 52 Reasons to Hate My Father! :) I've enjoyed reading your posts and I hope you have a fabulous July!

  3. Well here's looking to July, then! Nice haul, Sunny. Hope you get some new pretties this month for your birthday. :)

  4. Busy is good, as long as you're having fun. :) OCD Love Story sounds cute...I think my sis picked it up a few weeks back, but I don't think she's started it yet. Hope you both love it! And thanks again for being the sweet, adorable person you are! Hope you have a fabulous July, and YAY for birthday months!!! :D

  5. I hope things start looking up in July! Busy can be better than bored, but feeling stressed is no fun. You'll have a lovely birthday month full of celebration and a little more time for relaxation. :)

  6. July is DEFINITELY the best birthday month of them all. :D Happy Birthday to you, my bloggy birthday month twin! :)
