Monthly Recap
    How was your June? 
    Link up with your highlights, monthly recaps or favorites below!


    1. 19 books is great, Eva! I'm loving all the beautiful covers. :)
      I'm a little sad that you didn't like Defending Taylor, but I've noticed others aren't liking it either, so you're not alone. I really NEED to read The Scorpio Races soon!
      I hope you have a great July! :)

    2. WOW you read so many in June!!! WTG. I Almost Forgot About You looks interesting. That is crazy you had 5 DNF's, but better to DNF and move on then to suffer!

    3. Five DNFs!! Wow. I see so many here that I want to read. I really thought Invincible Summer would have been a good one; thanks for vetting that one. I'm finally going to dig into I Almost Forgot About You later this week after putting it off so many times.

    4. Wow 19 is awesome even with 5 DNFs!! I honestly need to start DNFing more. I am waiting for I Almost Forgot About You from the library - I can't wait to read it!! Hope you have a great July!!

    5. 5 DNF's is a lot but you did read a lot, so you kind of win!

    6. Sorry you had so many DNFs, but at least you had some great ones! And 19 books is more than I read lol, so I agree with the above comment that you still kind of win :-P

    7. Ooh you read some books that I really want to check out like The Assistants, The Girls, and You Know Me name a few. Sorry for all the DNFs; I hope you don't have any this month!


    8. I've heard really good things about The Scorpio Races, I'll have to give it a try.

    9. I wish I could read 19 books in a month!! I know a lot of people that do, but I just must be an insanely slow reader :( If I could read 20 books a month x's 12 months..... I could read 240/year!! OMG, my TBR would LOVE ME!!! Good for you though!!

      I really want to read The Girls, American Girls, and All the Missing Girls (a lot of GIRLS books!!) from your list.

    10. 19 books! You tore it up in June! :) So disappointing that Defending Taylor wasn't a bigger hit - esp. since you usually enjoy her books. I'm still considering All the Missing Girls... I don't usually go for mystery/suspense but that one sounds so good.

    11. You had a awesome reading month, Congrats!! I also read Girls in June but wasn't a huge fan of it.

    12. This looks like a great month, Eva! I've heard great things about the girls and vinegar girl. I'm sorry you had so many DNFs, that sucks! Definitely want to read Siracusa next month as well :)

    13. OmG, you read so many books!! Kudos to you!
      I got The Assistans recently (UK edition) so I'm looking forward to reading that one.
