It’s (basically) the end of 2021, and that means it’s my very favorite time of the blogging year: the couple weeks where I can make all of my content yearly wrap-ups and talk about my reading stats to my heart’s content.
Looking for an adorable picture book to read to that one toddler in your life who never wants to take a nap? Well, I have just the book for you…

Get ready for some deep questions to be answered and some tea to be spilled.

It felt like one long time vacuum. What did I even do this month?

I’m having a hard time believing it’s already July; since quarantine started, everything has blended together into one long expanse of monotonous social distancing.

I thought writing a monthly wrap-up would help break up the Groundhog Day feeling, so here’s a little overview of what I read and blogged about this month!
Take a classic, high-stakes, locked-room mystery, add some spicy drama, and you have a real page-turner.
This is probably the most unique historical fiction book I’ve read all year. My first read by Ruta Sepetys did not disappoint!
Wow! This is my first-ever time being nominated for a tag. A huge thank-you to Sidh Aneja at Just One More Episode for nominating me! He posts really insightful book reviews on his blog.

With 11 days until the official start to summer, we all could use a fun and fluffy contemporary, right? Add in a few adorable dogs and a splash of light romance, and you have the perfect June read.
