Treat Yo Shelf & Giveaway: June Monthly Recap

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.

I bought NovellyYours’ Unbirthday candle and it smells freakin’ amazing!!! NovellyYours is an Etsy account created by Brittany at The Book Addicts Guide, and her book inspired soy candles are fantastic.

June Favorites

  • 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.
