Wrap Up: June 2016

My favorite June read is…

I can not believe that June is just about over. This year is just flying right on by isn’t it?! I didn’t even think that I had that much time to read this month, but I’m happy to say that I read 5 books and 3 comics this month! WOO HOO!! June has definitely been one of the best reading months so far this year. My favorite book (ha how about books) this month are milk and honey and The House of Bradbury! If you haven’t read either of those you need to add them to your summer reading list. They’re amazing!! I still haven’t been able to put all of my thoughts together for milk and honey… it blew me away. I can’t wait to share the full review soon.

I’d love to know what your favorite June read was so please leave it down below in the comments! Happy Thursday friends!!

Wrap Up: May 2016

My favorite May read would have to be…

Last month was complete and total madness. I was working long hours in office to stay caught up, had endless consults and meetings, shoots, and editing. I freaking loved every minute of it all though. The only downside to all of that was the fact that I didn’t read much at all. I’m not sure if I avoided it a little and was in a slump or if I really was just that busy and by the time I got to bed, CRASH. Now that I think about it, it’s both. What I did read over the past month was 6 books total (5 comics and 1 book).

The one book I read was a little difficult to get through. Find out why in the video, but what I’m loving about comics is how quick and easy they are to read. Not to mention, they’re SO much fun. The ones I’ve been lucky to pick up have had me laughing out loud or totally sucked into it. I think my favorite read this month would definitely have to be Sweet Tooth Volumes 1-3!

Wrap Up: April 2016 & May TBR

My favorite April read was…

I see a reoccurring theme here… I’m overly ambitious with my TBR! I really thought I would do better, but sadly didn’t. I guess I was just too dang busy enjoying all the fun things to do in Hawaii! My favorite April read was hands down Salt to the Sea! I HIGHLY recommend it and if you haven’t read Between Shades of Gray, read that first! It is so freaking good you guys!! I hope you enjoy the video and as always, feel free to comment if you have questions about a book or if you’ve read any of these. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy Wednesday friends!!

Book Review: The Assistants by Camille Perri

“There is so much money.”

Enjoyable! | 4/5 stars | Buy your copy of The Assistants

Overview: 
Tina Fontana is a 30 year old assistant with student loans looming over her head. In a moment of weakness, Tina cashes a huge check that will fully pay off her debt, however the scheme quickly begins to unravel leading Tina down a path she never thought she’d be down.

What I loved: 
Tina’s internal monologue, had me laughing often, super enjoyable!

What I didn’t: The story wasn’t very realistic and a little cliche in places.

If you liked The Devil Wears Prada: this one is for you!
