Month in Review: June 2019

How is it that this year is already half over? I had a great reading month and I am hoping, now that summer is here, that this trend continues!!! I did manage to get my recap posts up from my time at BookExpo, so I will include the links here. And if you follow me on Instagram, I've been spotlighting each individual book I picked up...I'm having a great time doing so and getting excited all over about all the books as I discuss them. I can be found at @k2reader if you are on Instagram - you can see the latest posts over on the sidebar. I've been doing them 3 times a week - Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and I only started on June 12th, so I've done 9 BookExpo book spotlight posts so far!
