June 2018 Wrap-Up!

Hello everyone and welcome to another wrap-up! I'm not gonna lie and say that this month was great for me in terms of posting or reading. It actually kinda sucked. I did end up reading 6 books, but none of them were on my TBR and 4 of them were rereads. Hopefully July will be a better reading month but I'm just really struggling with this reading slump. It's not that I don't have time to's just that when I have the time to read, I want to do other things like take a nap or watch Bones. Anyway, let's just dive right in!

Title: Persuasion 
Authors: Jaymin Eve & Jane Washington
Rating: 5/5 stars

Title: Seduction
Authors: Jaymin Eve & Jane Washington 
Rating: 5/5 stars

Title: The Sound of Snowfall
Author: C.L. Stone
Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Title: Fallen Crest High
Author: Tijan
Rating: 3.75/5 stars
I had really high hopes for this book after reading Tijan's other book, Ryan's Bed. Unfortunately, I didn't find it met my expectations. However, I did really enjoy this book. I plan on continuing on with the series to see if it gets better. It's easy to binge this book and I was up until 2 hours past when I normally went to bed to read it, so that says something for my enjoyment. I like the premise of the story and I'm excited to read more! The only things that I had problems with was, at times, it was hard to connect to the characters and sometimes things seemed unrealistic or unexpected in a way that isn't probably. Otherwise, I did enjoy this story quite a bit!

Title: 5 Fathers
Author: Kate Morgan
Rating: 3/5 stars
This was a fun read, but not really memorable. It was a bit of a let down but I enjoyed it while I read it. I have a feeling that because of the ending, I will want to read the second book. Overall, I thought the smut was on point but the plot and characters could use some work.

Title: A Portrait of Pain
Author: Jane Washington
Rating: 5/5 stars
This was such a fun reread and I already miss this world and these characters. I love this series so much and I'm already looking forward to my next reread. There's just something about it that's so different from all the other books I've read.

I logged more hours watching TV and movies than I did reading (*hides behind a couch*). When I'm in a reading slump, I usually just want to watch Netflix more than read, so that's pretty much what I did all month. A whole lot of Netflix and Hulu.

First, I finished my binge of White Collar with the last two seasons. I was surprised that the final season was only 6 episodes. In fact, I'm still crying inside because I definitely wanted it to be a lot longer. Also, just the series ending in general made me cry because while it was a happy ending, it was also sad!

Next, I saw the new Tomb Raider. I've seen the ones staring Angelina Jolie and I've really liked them, so when this one came out I knew that I had to see it. My family bought it on AppleTV and we watched it one afternoon. I thought it was an excellent prequel to the Lara Croft movies and has definitely helped me understand those better.

After that, I binged straight through seasons 1 and 2 of Bones, and most of the way through season 3. What can I say, I love this show. It was always one that interested me when I was younger and now that I saw it on Hulu, I've started binging it. I'm obsessed and I don't care. There's also plenty of material for me to watch (12 seasons of it). I'm already thinking about the next time that I'm going to be able to watch it.

Lastly, I watched The Sixth Sense with my dad's side of the family. I thought I was gonna be super scared because they compared it to The Shining, but it wasn't that scary. There were some freaky moments but after a lot more of the movie, I wasn't scared.

Well, thanks for reading! Hopefully July will be a better month in terms of posting and reading! I have a large stack of review books to be getting through so there will hopefully be a lot of reviews coming soon!
