I decided to change things up and try out monthly recaps instead of weekly ones, which I’m now calling ‘State of the Blog’. I’m linking this one up to two memes: Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 🙂
Looking Back on June
Oh my gods, I cannot believe June is already over. It flew by so fast. Maybe because it would take me forever to go over everything that happened in June in my life. But here’s the
cliff notes Sparknotes (Sparknotes is way more relevant now) version. Ready?
On the first full week of June, I had Senior Prom and Post Prom (an all night event held after prom back at school with tons of activities and prizes, designed to keep kids off the road, sober, and somewhere parents can supervise). The next week, I turned eightteen, took one last walk in my high school as a student, and graduted from high school. Last week, I went to lots of graduation parties, hit up Six Flags multiple times even though I’m not the biggest fan of rollercoasters, watched Now You See Me 2 (great sequel, but not as good as the first one), and hung out with friends. This week, I went to college orientation and another two grad parties. Needless to say, June was very eventful for me.

Through the Dark (The Darkest Minds #1.5, 2.5, 3.5) by Alexandra Bracken
Barnes & Noble (curse them!) had a three for $30 sale in the teen section so of course I couldn’t resist breaking my book buying ban. I was doing so well too! I managed to resist so many good BookOutlet deals and then B&N just had to come up with a way to get me to spend my money. *Sigh* The problems with being a bookworm. Your wallet will forever hate you because you can’t stop yourself from buying pretty books with beautiful stories.
Hehe, the only two books I actually read this month were The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (which was a reread…) and The Memory Book by Lara Avery, which comes out on Tuesday. Hey, I was really busy in June okay?
Looking Forward to July
I’m super pumped for July for some reason. Which is weird, especially since I don’t think my family is going on vacation this year. 🙁 But dorm room shopping! And I hope I can attend a book blogging event in New York City.
Pretty much the same goals as usual. You know, post more, comment more, use social media more, make more friends, etc.

Even though June was super busy, I still had a blast. Hopefully, July will be a bit more relaxing and allow me to keep up with blogging.
How was your June?
