The Sunday Post #3 - June 2016 in Review

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 

Welcome to July everyone! Today's post will be a month in review and I can't believe that June has already come and gone. What is even more unbelievable is how well I did at blogging in the month of June! I posted way more than I have in a long time and that makes me extremely pleased with myself. :) 

This month was a month for a good amount of reviews, some new (to me) and awesome memes, and the start of my BookTube channel! I was also approved for various e-arcs over at NetGalley and Edelweiss for the first time which was extremely awesome. I'm excited and somewhat nervous to see how everything plays out in July. I've been trying to keep up with my blog, reviews, and now my booktube videos so we'll see how it all turns out. 

Outside of blogging I have been extremely busy this month with preparing to move. My family is currently in the process of moving houses and it's been a blur of cleaning the house, getting rid of things we no longer need, and looking for a different place to live. It'll all be coming to a close at the end of July so I'm looking forward to finally settling in again and having more time to read. ;)

So I'm most definitely looking forward to July and what it has in store for my blog and reading goals. I'll be participating in two read-a-thons for sure this month so that is definitely exciting! I'm participating in the Make Me Read It Read-A-Thon and the BookTube-A-Thon which you can find out more about below. 

Let's get into a review of June!

How did your June go? Let me know in the comments below!



  1. I understand the struggle with keeping up with everything; I usually don't! :-/ I was wondering wht the first book to We Own The Night is? I didn't want to read a sequel and be super confused. XD

    1. Sure, The Sound of Us is the first book! I haven't read it yet but I'm sure it's good. :) And apparently the only connection between the two books is that some of the characters from The Sound of Us are mentioned in We Own the Night. Definitely give them both a try though! I'm wanting to read The Sound of Us once I get a chance. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Here's the link to The Sound of Us on Goodreads -

    2. Oh, okay! That makes sense. I definitely will! Thanks so much for the link, I really appreciate it! ;-)


What's on your mind? :)
