The time it was a monthly recap {35}

Posted August 2, 2018 by Stacee in Monthly Recap | 1 Comment

You guys. I don’t understand how we’re officially in August.  This year has been flying by.

I’ve had absolutely no ambition for the blog lately.  There are a few factors, but that’s another story.  Regardless, I didn’t recap June, so this is going to be a two month recap.

Settle in.

In June I read a total of 18 books

And in case you’re counting, yes. There are only 17 books listed there and that’s because after finishing Wicked and the Wallflower, I immediately read it again.  That’s how much I loved it.

In July I read a total of 17 books

This was a lot better than I expected.  Between binging 5 seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in a week and a half and SDCC, I was at 8 books a week ago.  Hubs went out of town for four days and I lived like a hermit, reading as much as I could.

  • Paula Stokes sent me a signed arc of her upcoming book, Hidden Places
  • The Green PSI mailing for The Darkest Legacy had a bound manuscript + a hand written note from Alex
  • Nisha Sharma sent me a signed copy of her book, My So-Called Bollywood Life

  • Mysterious Galaxy made me scream by giving me an arc of Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness
  • The green PSI mailing for The Darkest Legacy had an early finished copy + swag {including a light bulb sippy I’m obessed with}
  • Disney sent a “Witch, please” mailing with Hocus Pocus + delicious cookies + swag

I also got the orange psi mailing with candy and a gift card to see The Darkest Minds, Jimmy Patterson Books sent me Girls of Paper and Fire, the blue PSI mailing had a movie tie-in copy of The Darkest Minds + swag, I ordered and received the special edition of Legendary from Goldsboro Books, I got my greedy hands on an arc of The Dark Days Deceit, and 20th Century Fox sent me a dvd of Love Simon.
