June 2017 Book Haul, Wrap-Up and July TBR



Hi there! I hope you are all doing well :)

It is really, really hard to try to understand that it is already July 1st!
Especially with how busy and chaotic June was for me, lol! 
I cannot even begin to tell you all the things that occurred throughout the month - enough to keep me away from most bookish things - which is why I never got to finish my reviews and nothing was posted all month long... 
I am lowering my expectations and taking away the pressure this month - I have set a realistic schedule for myself and do hope to follow through all the bookish things... I need to, for my own sanity, lol ;) 

To start, here are all the books I've read and accumulated throughout June :)

    1. I would LOVE to see these all in a bookshop! Unfortunately, I don't know of any here in the US that carries them in stock. I am so happy for the Book Depository to deliver to me so easily :)
      Because You Love to Hate Me is so unique and fun - I'm halfway through reading the stories already!
      Happy reading, and thank you!

  5. How was Moxie? It's on my TBR list! I just read (I know, I know it's July, not June) Denton Little's Deathdate by Larry Rubin and What Light by Jay Asher. I highly recommend both to you!
