The June Wrap Up:  With Movies, MasterClass, & SO MANY BOOKS

The June Wrap Up: With Movies, MasterClass, & SO MANY BOOKS

Happy July everyone! This month reminds me of picnics and spending summers at the lake by my family.  We didn’t have a lake house or anything, but there was a really nice beach in bicycling distance and there were some summers when we were there every day. Ah, life was so much simpler when I was twelve. Intense haul this month, mostly due to BookCon on June 1st, and a whole lot of ARCs?  Seriously, y’all are going to be drowning in book reviews in September because most of these books are published in September/October.  I’m both sorry for the […]

I blog mostly YA, and I have never read a Jay Kristoff novel before.  I have them all on my TBR.  Nevernight. Illuminae. Stormdancer.  I have always intended to read him, but I just haven’t gotten to that place on my TBR list yet. So, as a small blog with no fangirling history of Jay Kristoff, imagine my surprise when NetGalley emails me with it’s perfunctory “Congratulations!  You may now download your copy of LIFEL1K3!”  Color me pleased!  I knew this was an anticipated novel and I can think of so many other bloggers who would have killed to have this one […]
