June 2020 Wrap Up

Hey everyone! It is the end of June.. WHAT? How did that happen? The world is crazy lately and I guess being inside most the time just makes all the days mush together. I also feel like time is going by so quickly and I don’t have enough time to do the things I want to do YET I’m also doing nothing???? What the heck is wrong with me? Anyone else feeling this struggle right now?

Life update: this month has been another month of working from home. I have to say I’m getting used to working from home but also its getting lonely. I miss seeing people everyday. I’m mixed though… I like being able to roll out of bed and just be at home, but the social aspect is lacking.. I don’t know. I suppose I should be enjoying it while it lasts. Are you guys working from home? Anyone’s job gone back to “normal” yet?

Book buying update: So, this month I wanted to lay low and not buy many books because I have so many book I still need to read. So, I ended up getting 8 new books…. BUT its not as bad as it seems because 2 books were $.99 on my Kobo, 1 was a gift, and 1 was sent from a publisher! SO its not that bad!

What I added to my shelf this month:

  • The Royal We
  • The Heir Affair (from publisher)
  • The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (gifted)
  • The Guest List
  • Get a Life, Chloe Brown
  • The Cosy Coffee Shop of Promises
  • A Year of Chasing Love ($.99 on Kobo)
  • All Our Twisted Secrets ($.99 on Kobo)

So, with all of that info… lets head on into my fav things from this month 😊

  • Chosen Ones by Veronica Roth
  • The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
  • The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan
  • Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
  • The Second Chance Hotel by Rachel Dove

My Favourite Books This Month:

  • The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Royal We – ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Favourite TV Shows/ Movies:

  • Good Girls (Netflix) – Such an entertaining show! If you haven’t seen it, its about 3 moms who need money really bad so they decide to rob a grocery store. This starts to spiral out of control and they start to get involved in some dark things. Its pretty funny though so definitely check it out!
  • Blockers (Netflix) – It has John Cena in it… that is all you need to know πŸ˜‚
The Academy's Now Giving an Oscar to "Popular" Films, So Let the ...
  • Father of the Year (Netflix)

Favourite Songs/ Artists:

  • Lady Gaga – I am FEELING everything Lady Gaga has been doing lately! Just the style of music she is putting out I think is awesome in general. Happy with all her recent songs!
  • This is America – Childish Gambino
  • Kings and Queens – Ava Max

  1. Thank you so much for including my book review! I loved writing and I’m glad you enjoyed it. ❀ This month has been slower for me when it comes to reading because life is just hitting hard mentally but hopefully July will be much easier.

  2. I’m working from home too and I agree totally! I really like being able to work from home, I feel more relaxed, I don’t have to commute to work. But it is weird not seeing people… It feels really strange…

  3. I’m a coffee shop barista, so it’s not really possible for me to work from home.. ahah πŸ˜… That being said, even when our lockdown was still in place, we NEVER closed shop- I was one of the three employees that remained and kept the shop going.. thank god it’s not roughly β€œnormal”, as the increased hours got me quite overtired..

    I do still feel the same as you though ! Time seems to be going fast, while being all the same and my motivation is even worst than my usual..

      1. I slowered down, only 10hrs but hey πŸ˜… *when* the second wave hit, I doubt i’d do it again and have the whole shop on my shoulders again.. I got lucky to get skipped by the virus the first run, I wouldn’t dare try my luck again..
