Month in Review: June 2014

Hello July! Summer is here with a vengeance...the heat and humidity are here along with crazy thunderstorms. I'm hoping this summer brings lots of reading time...the spring ended up being super busy work-wise and I'm not too happy about that! There are just too many good books to read and not enough time in the day to get them all read. I'm back to training for another 1/2 marathon (walking not running) at the end of the month, so I should be able to get in quite a few audio books. I just need to be better about setting aside an hour or two for reading...I foresee doing a social media ban each day - that might be the only way to get more reading in!

Here are my reading stats for June!
  • Books read:  14
Books I read:
  1. The Marriage Pact -- Linda Lael Miller (e-book)
  2. Kiss Me Like This -- Bella Andre (e-book)
  3. The Tailgate -- Elin Hilderbrand (e-book)

  5. Elizabeth is Missing -- Emma Healey
  6. The Collector -- Nora Roberts (audio book)
