June Recap + Flights of Fantasy Update


June is one of my favorite months of the year and not just because it’s my birthday month. I love the start of summer. I always feel energized to make a ton of plans. I get to wear dresses most of the time. I can wear sandals instead of boots. It’s still light out at 8pm. A friend of mine recently said that she must be solar-powered because she’s just happier when the sun is out. And that’s exactly how I feel.

It’s been a busy month for me, especially these last couple of weeks and I’m looking forward to more of the same. But also more days and weekends where I can bum around and relax.

Anyway, here's what June has been like on the blog:

I only read one fantasy book this month and while that number isn't exactly impressive, the book I read was! If The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson isn't on your TBR yet, add it! I was happily surprised by this sequel and I can't wait to see what happens next.

  1. Hooray for June! It's just so much better when the sun is out and the days are longer; I know I'm much less grumpy and I feel like being out most of the time. Summer is my favorite <3 Here's to hoping July is amazing!
