Finland!! (I know deep down you love my corny jokes)
Reader, June has come and is just about gone. Have you been enjoying the heat? Do you have any big vacation or staycation plans? My family and I beach a lot…hit the movies…swim…grill…eat too many smores (if there is such a thing). We are summer people.
Let’s recap June, shall we?

Jennifer Mitchell, Bibliolater June Awards & Accolades
Favorite Book of the Month: Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. No books even compared to this rocktastic book. I’m OBSESSED. I squeal every time I think about it. Daisy. Billy. Camilla. Graham. Karen. Eddie. Pete. Rod. These are characters that will live with you for a long while.
Runner Up for Favorite Book of the Month: Jennifer Woodhull’s Sour. It made my heart smile. I’ve become a total fan girl of Jennifer’s work. The two rom coms I’ve read (In Other Words and Sour) were really entertaining.
Favorite New to Me Author: Taylor Jenkins Reid. Again….freakin’ Daisy Jones and The Six!
