Treat Yo Shelf:
June Monthly Recap
Welcome to my monthly recap post, in which I fangirl over the books I read this month, bookish items I acquired, book events I attended, bookish news, and/or subscription boxes I received in the month of June.
What did I read?
It was another slow reading month for me. Sorry, guys.
What books did I buy?
I was on a “Book Buying Ban” this month, but I did purchase one book, Autofocus, because I wanted the awesome swag that came with the pre-order.
What books did I receive from Publishers/Authors to review?
- Autofocus by Lauren Gibaldi from HarperCollins/HarperTeen (Hardcover & e-ARC)
- We Own the Night by Ashley Poston from Bloomsbury USA Children’s Books (e-ARC)
What books did I receive from friends/fellow bloggers?
- The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker (ARC)
- The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh (signed Hardcopy)
June’s Uppercase Box
June’s BOOM!BOX from Espionage Cosmetics
Bookish Swag I bought or received from Authors/Publishers/Bookstores/Bloggers
- Being part of my niece’s wedding and reading a Neil Gaiman poem during the ceremony.
- Bringing back my favorite Summer drink: Starbuck’s Green Tea Frappuccino
- Participating in the Irish Banana’s blog tour for Autofocus. I had so much fun taking pictures themed around my review for the book. Plus, I adored the book.
