June 2016 Wrap-Up


This month was like the month from hell in many regards that I really don’t want to get into now. Let’s just say that NOTHING went according to plan and there were very few pleasant occurrences, however, the reading (if less than usual) wasn’t so bad. I had literally every rating from 2.5 to 5 stars. So, there’s always that.

Not on the initial TBR:

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)   Video Rage: A Novel   Gambit   You Before Anyone Else   Children of Icarus   This is What Goodbye Looks Like

As always, click on the titles above to get to the reviews (or on the name of the people I read the books with, to get to their reviews if they are up yet) and on the covers to be redirected to Goodreads!


I don’t even know what else to tell you. This month was honestly quite a blur of being sick and working, reading and watching TV and doing virtually NOTHING productive whatsoever. It’s okay though and I see all the good things happening in July for sure! (Hopefully … keep your fingers crossed!)

Now, I have found a good rhythm blogging for me, posting 4-5 times a week seems like a good amount without burning out. Also, I celebrated 3 years of blogging, which is SO AMAZING. Thank you so much for sticking around! I still can’t believe I’ve been doing this for so long, but I cannot imagine life without it anymore. So, here are the posts from June:





How was your month? I hope it was better than mine. Tell me all about it in the comments! Tell me random happy things!

  1. Speaking of Red Rising, I’m listening to the audio book again, and I think that the movie adaptation might be better off as a Netflix series. I mean, that is a lot of material to cover. Even if you shorten the battles at the institution and a few other things, we’re still looking at maybe 2.5 hours. Perhaps the story might be better off in a format made for longer stories.


      • Hopefully a good one. It would suck if we had a repeat of Eragon, where they tried to shove a very complex story into two hours and it ended up losing some of the heart of the story.
        And with such an epic tale, too! The fanbase would be pretty disappointed, to say the least.


      • Pierce was working in TV and movie before becoming an author and he is working with the person who writes the script very closely. They are taking the time to really do things right, so I have faith in them until they prove me otherwise.


      • By the way, I think I know what most of my family would be if we lived in the Red Rising universe. Obviously, I’d be a Violet, though I think I’d enjoy being a carver more than a writer (I’d get to make the monsters, instead of write about them. 😉 ); my mom and dad, being rabbis, would be Whites; my sister Adi would be a Brown, because she’s a professional baker; my mom’s wife, my stepmother, would be a Copper, because she’s an accountant; my dad’s wife, my other stepmother, would probably be an Orange, because she’s an engineer; and my other sisters haven’t chosen careers or career goals yet, so I have no idea what they’d be.
        What would you and your family be? I guess you’d be a Violet, but I’ve been wrong before.


      • But the point of the colour system is that you don’t get to choose your colour. Your whole family would be one category, even if they didn’t like it. My eyes are brown, so are the ones of my parents … so I guess that’s what we would be.


  2. Sorry to hear that you didn’t have a great month! Hope July’s better for you, and congratulations on three years of blogging. ❤

    I've been seeing My Lady Jane everywhere and while I'm ambivalent about it, I'm glad to hear that you've been enjoying it so far. I think I'm just a bit confused like… is it YA? Is it historical? Is it modern historical? Yeah, I dunno. 😛


    • Thank you! I am putting all my faith in July for now.
      So, I would say My Lady Jane is alternate historical YA Fantasy. It’s super fun, but I am definitely going to write a full review as soon as I am done 😀


  3. I’m so sorry to hear that this month wasn’t great for you! Hopefully July will be a lot better 🙂 you’ve had a great reading month! And congratulations on your 3 year blogiversary!
