Happy July! I thought I'd try and type up a June 2017 Wrap Up for you guys and hopefully make it a thing for myself to continue.

Nonetheless, I thought I'd let you guys know which YA books I read this month as well as a few random favorites of the month. If you'd like to know which New Adult or Adult books I read this month, then head on over to Night Owls

The Bad Guys: Episode 1

My Favorite Young Adult Book of June was A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
This is the 3rd and most recent book in the series, but it is also the last one following Feyre and Rhy's story. This was such an AMAZING book and I had a book hangover for a few days because of it. :)

A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3)

One of my all time favorite bands is All Time Low and they released their latest album, Last Young Renegade, at the beginning of this month. It was quickly my most favorite album to listen to this month! The lyrics are relatable and so easy to sing along to.  I don't have a favorite song because I love each and every song on the album for different reasons but I really enjoy listening to Good Times.

If you haven't ever listened to All Time Low, then do so now! I just love them so much! Click on the album cover to visit their website.

I haven't been watching too many movies or TV shows this year so I won't always have an answer for this one. But this month I was able to watch Wonder Woman and it was AMAZING! Definitely my favorite of the month and one of my favorites of the year. So beautifully done, in my opinion! Also, I like looking at Chris Pine... But for real, this movie is awesome and you should totally see it if you haven't yet. Very empowering for sure!

I am looking forward to a few things in July. 
Lucky in Love by Kasie West is set to release on July 25th and I am ecstatic! I so enjoy reading Kasie West's books and I don't even have to know what this one is about to want to read it. 

But here's the summary just in case you'd like to know. :) 

Lucky in Love

In this new contemporary from YA star Kasie West, a girl who wins the lottery learns that money can cause more problems than it solves, especially when love comes into the picture. 

Maddie doesn't believe in luck. She's all about hard work and planning ahead. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. And then, to her astonishment --

She wins!

In a flash, Maddie's life is unrecognizable. No more stressing about college scholarships. Suddenly, she's talking about renting a yacht. And being in the spotlight at school is fun... until rumors start flying, and random people ask her for loans. Now, Maddie isn't sure who she can trust.

Except for Seth Nguyen, her funny, charming coworker at the local zoo. Seth doesn't seem aware of Maddie's big news. And, for some reason, she doesn't want to tell him. But what will happen if he learns her secret?

With tons of humor and heart, Kasie West delivers a million-dollar tale of winning, losing, and falling in love.

I'm also looking forward to Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7th! Spider-Man is my FAVORITE Marvel superhero and I have always enjoyed watching each reboot that comes out. I'm a little nervous about this one but I'm excited nonetheless!

So I'm currently trying to decide if I want to read Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett or Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith. Either way, I'll end up reading both of them but I just can't figure out which one to read first!
