June Wrap-Up

Hi everyone!

Today, I will be sharing with you my very sad June Wrap-Up!

As I said previously, I only read one book this month.

That book is Kissing in America by Margo Rabb, and sadly I REALLY didn’t enjoy this book. My review will be up soon.

Hopefully, you all had a wonderful time reading this month. Next month, I hope to read more!

Good Night Book Owls!

Where have I been? Please read.

Today will be a very interesting post, and one that you will probably never see again.

For the past FEW months, not just this one, blogging has been a chore for me. I feel like instead of saying “Yay! I’m blogging!” I have been saying “I have to go for a few minutes to post.” See the difference?

This has also been the problem with reading just this past month. Tomorrow, I will be posting my June Wrap-Up, and let’s just say, this months wrap-up is not like me. I feel like I’m reading for the blog and not for me, I have read to many ARCs, and am very overwhelmed by how many I still have to read. For this reason, I will not be excepting and ARCs unless they are from big authors, brands or publishers. I’m very sorry if that does not sound fair, but that is going to be what I will have to do.

I have also not really been in the mood to do anything related to this blog, because I started something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time (if you’ve stuck with me since the beginning you probably know what I mean). I will not be sharing the link to it, as it is not related to books.

But don’t worry, I’m not leaving! New posts will be up weekly, and I will have a post later this week explaining my new blogging schedule, but until then, daily posts will be up!

I’m really close to 100 followers, and I have worked 1 and 1/2 years to get here! I never would’ve thought that I would ever reach 100 followers, but I’m so glad that almost 100 of you like my blog! A thank you post will be up once I hit it! Please share my blog link to anyone who you think will enjoy it!

Anyways, sorry for this rambly post, you won’t be seeing another one anytime soon!

Synopsis:

Number ten is plastered on his team jersey and on his ego. In his own mind, Crown Sterling is the shit. He dates the prettiest women, he dominates on the soccer field, he pours money out of his pockets like it’s water. Until a debilitating knee injury puts him out of commission on and off the field. He’s sent to an isolated town in Louisiana to recoup, undergo physical therapy and heal. But it’s when you’re down that you find out who your real friends are, and what they value in you, if anything at all. All Lyra wants out of life is peace and quiet. She grew up with a regular, everyday family. When she turned sixteen, rummaging through her grandmother’s hope chest in the attic, she discovered a secret that would turn her simple, normal life into a ball of chaos that revolved around her. But while she seems to face her fears head on in her career, she lives a life that’s secure and well hidden. A new neighbor moved in next door and he’s decided that everyone needs to listen to his rap music, shattering Lyra’s quiet existence. Enraged, she stomps to the next townhouse over and who should open the door but a man whose good looks and charming smile knock her breathless.

How good looking? Just ask him.
How charming? He’ll tell you that too.
The king must be dethroned.
And a small town girl who’s been through hell is just the one to do it. 
Make sure you play in all of the games this week and win exciting prizes!
