Wrap Up: July 2016

My reads during the month of July… boy did it fly!

Advertisements

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!

Comic Review: Rat Queens, Sweet Tooth, & More

Another Saturday morning comic round up of reviews!

Happy Saturday! I’ve decided Saturday mornings are perfect for sleeping in, being lazy, and staying in bed reading some comics. Wouldn’t you agree? You know kind of like you did as a kid except with cartoons! My husband and I have started making this a little morning tradition the last few weeks and we’re absolutely loving it! Hope you’ll decide to join us for comic mornings and let us know what comics you’re reading!!

In my last comic review, I spoke about Sweet Tooth Volumes 1-3. It was a great start to this series (and find out how I came across it) and I couldn’t wait to continue. Today, I get to share the last 3 volumes in the series. It’s come to an end now and I’m a little sad about it… I highly recommend it! Other than that series I started two others. One that I was happy with and one that received a lot of hype, but I just didn’t love it as much. I’m looking forward to continuing with both though just so I can see if things will pick up and change my mind.

Comic Review: Sweet Tooth, Lumberjanes & More

A round up of 5 comics and their reviews!

One afternoon, my husband and I decided to drive up to Fort Collins and roam around. It was then we came across a cute little comic shop named Halley’s Comics. I kindly asked the man behind the counter for some guidance. We wanted something that we could read together and I told him that we really loved The Walking Dead. That was when he recommended Sweet Tooth. We bought the first volume just to give it a go and we have really enjoyed the series so far. It’s exactly what we were looking for. So thankful it was recommended and now we highly recommend it too!!

Favorites: Halfway through 2016

A collection of my favorite reads so far this year.

June has come and gone and so far I’ve read 39 books. They have all been great too which is why I wanted to share my favorite reads so far this year. I’m also really interested in looking back at the end of the year and seeing which of these makes the final cut for the end of the year favorites. I’m sure the list will change, but for now, I’m extremely happy with the lineup. I hope that you’ll find at least one you haven’t read yet and give it a go!!

Today, I’m dressed head to toe Americana and ready to celebrate! Sadly, Zach has to work so I’ll just be chilling at home. There will be sunshine, bbq foods, and of course a good book! Later, I’ll most likely stay home with our pup and watch the fireworks from upstairs. I love this time of year. I hope you all have a fun and safe holiday!

Happy Fourth of July!

TBR: July 2016

A great stack of books I hope to finish in July…

Hey friends! I’ve debated whether or not I wanted to actually do a TBR pile this month… I’ve been so terrible lately about sticking to it and end up choosing whatever calls to me, but I really wanted to get through this pile because the amazing BookSparks sent some really great reads my way in their July box. So, I’d love to get through them since a majority will be released this very month! WOO!! Stay tuned for full reviews as I work my way through. I’m currently reading You Will Know Me. What’s your first read of the month??

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.
