Did This Month Really Just Happen - June Recap

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

Paper Bindings - All Things Life, Books, and Blog Monthly Recap -
Your guide to what's happening at Paper Bindings.

June was...let's just not speak of it.

Why?

May was all about fun and my bookish BEAcation. But June? June was all about back to reality. Back to job hunting, back to bills, back to all that stress.

So, yeah, not speaking about June.

Thank heavens for my season pass to Universal, nothing like a fun escape from reality when you're having a stressful day.

Paper Bindings - June 2015 Recap

I always seem to favor either YA or Adult books each month. Poor little NA is neglected. 

Paper Bindings - June 2015 Recap

Paranormal wins once again. No surprise there.

But who is that in second place? Contemporary!? ME? How did that happen?

Paper Bindings - June 2015 Recap

I am looking forward to finish cleaning out my ereaders so I can go back to having higher averages.

I solemnly swear to no longer pick up free ebooks just because there is some remote chance in Siberia that I might enjoy it. From now on I will only pick up ones I am pretty sure I will enjoy. 

At least until I get them under control again.

July is going to be the month of whatever I want to do/read. No plans. No limitations. No rules. Having fun my way.

We also have a new feature coming to Paper Bindings. The little icon in the side bar may or may not give it away. :) We have some fun posts planned for the future so stay tuned!
