Monthly Wrap-Up: June ’20

June ended with me taking a much needed break from blogging. In truth, I am still not ready to come back and after thinking on it, I’ve decided that for the rest of July I’m going to only make the occasional post. I have a couple of ARC reviews that need to go up including a blog tour I am participating in. I might put together a book haul post, but other than that, I don’t have any solid posting plans for the month. Come August, I hope that I feel refreshed and ready to jump back into blogging on a more regular schedule.

Favorite Book This Month:

I had several four-star reads in June, but my favorite of which was Claire Kann’s If It Makes You Happy. Kann writes such wonderful MCs. I have such a special place in my heart for Alice from her debut Let’s Talk About Love, but Winnie from this one has also dug her way into my heart. Cover linked to Goodreads.

Least Favorite Book This Month:

No read received less than three stars.

Reviews Posted This Month:

Mexican Gothic is a New York Times Bestseller!!!!! Sorry, had to add this because Silvia Moreno-Garcia deserves this and I am so happy for her.

Notable Blog Posts This Month + Looking Ahead:

Book Club News:

Latinx Book Club – We are taking a break for the rest of the summer, but are planning to come back just in time for Latinx Heritage Month. Find us online: Twitter/Goodreads.

What I Watched/Am Watching:

The King: Eternal Monarch: – K-Dramas are still my happy place. I am currently in the middle of this one and am really enjoying it. There are a couple of twists I did not see coming, so I am eager to find out how this one ends.

Pitch – I am rewatching Pitch and crying once again over the fact that we never got a second season. And how dare Kylie Bunbury and Mark-Paul Gosselaar tease us like that with that promo for the show. It’s already making me hope that maybe, just maybe, we can revive this show.

The Lovebirds – This was a really fun movie and I am so glad that it ended up on Netflix because it’s the kind of movie that is perfect to reach for during this time. Also can I just say how awesome it was to see an interracial couple who were both people of color?

July Releases I’m Excited For:

  1. Blogging can be quite straining. Take all of the time you need because mental health comes first!
    I’m looking forward to reading your review on The Only Good Indians and I’m glad you’re enjoying the kdrama The King because I’m really eager to watch it!

  2. I’ve been meaning to read If It Makes You Happy for a while now. I won it in a giveaway on Goodreads. I’m happy to see that you liked it! I really want to read Mexican Gothic girl ASAP! I haven’t been blogging as much and have just been doing it here and there when I am up for it. Sometimes a break is nice, even if you need to extend it a little longer or just post occasionally.

  3. I read Cinderella is Dead right at the beginning of the month and it was so good. A very quick read and super easy to get invested in.

    I also need to get my hands on Mexican Gothic. I think the cover looks gorgeous!

  4. I loved The Sound of Stars and will read this author’s next book too. I hope you loved it! I preordered Cinderella is Dead, but have had review promised books push it aside. August I hope to read it.
