June 2019 Wrap-Up

Due to the blog hiatus I took, this June wrap-up is coming to you guys a wee bit late. Better late than never, though, right?!

I introduced a new feature on the blog right before I went on hiatus, which is a daily news round-up I’m calling Foxy Links (because, as you can see just looking at my blog, I love foxes). I love daily round-ups of relevant articles and posts, because who has time to read a hundred different websites and blogs? I hope you guys enjoy the daily Foxy Links posts!

Moving forward, I’m going to continue posting author interviews, except they won’t be a part of the Friday Favorites feature. I’ll just be posting interviews with authors and members of the larger book community as they come in.

How’d I do with my June Plans that I laid out at the beginning of the month? Well, I had planned on reading 30 books in 30 days, which I didn’t do. I read 17. Out of the 20 books I had on my June TBR, I read 8 of them, counting Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which I DNF-ed. Despite not making it to 30 books, I still think I had an amazing reading month.

For my 2019 Goodreads Challenge, my goal is 225 books. As of this writing, I’m at 75.

In terms of new books, I accumulated way more than I’d anticipated. However, I only outright purchased a handful of them. I also received some late birthday gifts and a couple of gift cards this month.

In no particular order:

Ebooks (not pictured):

As you can tell from my ebook purchases, I’m on a little bit of a romance binge. Part of that is due to it’s being summer, and in the summer I tend to read fluffy and/or steamy romances. The other reason is that I’m experimenting with new-to-me authors who will be at Apollycon next year, which I’ll be going to.

I’m very new to the romance genre, so if you have some recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
