A busy September and good reads.
September was a little crazy. I flew to Nevada to go house hunting, put in an offer, got the offer accepted, packed up our home in Denver, made a big Uhaul move into storage in Nevada, flew back home to prep the Denver house to go on the market, and now I’m back in Nevada playing catch up!! Phew! What a month it has been. We’re thrilled to be so close to closing on our new home soon and it’s very bittersweet to see our home in Denver go on the market. We know it will be just as good to the new family as it was to us and can’t wait to begin our transition into life in Nevada.
Other than that crazy mess called life, I’ve been able to read a little bit here and there. I managed to read 2 comics/graphic novels, 1 poetry collection, and 3 books. I enjoyed everything I read and as you know loved some more than others. If I had to choose I’d say my favorite thing I read that month was Alex + Ada. It was just so surprising and beautiful. So happy to have volume 2 arriving soon and to continue on with it. You can watch my September wrap up below and don’t forget to subscribe because FULL reviews of each are headed your way soon 🙂

August was full of great reads!
August was insane! We traveled to Rio to watch my brother compete in the Olympics, we came home and bought a house. Now we’re in the process of boxing up our house in Denver and getting ready for the big move to Nevada. I really thought I would have read more this past month, but I can see why I didn’t… I did manage to read 3 books and 2 comics. What I did read was fantastic! I highly recommend them all and here you’ll get a glimpse into each read, but for full reviews you can click below! This past weekend we boxed up my entire office and it makes me sad to see the empty bookshelf, but I did pull a few out. Stay tuned for my September TBR!

My reads during the month of July… boy did it fly!
I swear I blinked and July was over! I can’t believe it’s officially August… anyone else feeling like this?! July was busy, but I still managed to read 5 books and 4 comics. The books I read were fantastic as always (huge thank you to BookSparks and Atria Books), but my favorite read would have to be Swear on This Life by Renee Carlino. Oh goodness it was AMAZING and I devoured it in two days. The reads this last month were all a little heavier and emotional so just a little heads up for those who want to read these! I highly recommend them all though and would love to hear what you think so if you do pick one up. Let me know!

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!!

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!
The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin
Lumberjanes Volume 3
Sweet Tooth Volumes 1
Sweet Tooth Volumes 2
Sweet Tooth Volumes 3
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!!

My favorite read this month would be…
March was a crazy month and while I didn’t get to every book I had hoped, I’m happy with what I was able to read. My favorite read during March would have to be Me Before You. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it and the movie was pretty great too!

My favorite book that month would have to be…
I read a total of 6 books during the month of January. They were really great too! I read and watched The 5th Wave which was awesome, but I think my favorite book that month would have to be Before We Were Strangers! It was SO so cute and I loved the characters (the main guy, Matt, was a photographer for National Geographic! I’m a photographer too so yay to this!!) Confess was a close second okay or maybe it was The 5th Wave… Anyways, you can watch the video for more of my thoughts and opinions or click below for more in depth reviews on each.
