Just in case anyone was still curious to know, the quote from last month’s wrap up post was adapted from The Little Prince and yes, I cried when I found out that a signed copy was about $10,000. If I ever win a million, you can bet that’s the first thing I’ll buy. This month’s title is from another older book, chosen largely because I got a sunburn this month, lol.
It took me a little longer to write this post than I meant for it to, but as many of you’ probably already know, I’ve been a bit incapacitated recently. But now that I’m here I can let you know that I only read 30 books this past month which is, unfortunately, four less than last month. However, much to my immense excitement I’ve also realized that I wrote 36 reviews in June! I’ve finally had a month in which I wrote more reviews than books I read and I am over the moon about it!
As for the best book I read this month, barring rereads since we all know if I included those it’d be Cress forever and ever, it was a bit of a guilty pleasure read that turned out to be much better than I ever imagined it would be. I really enjoyed Cinder and Ella far more than I initially thought I would. It’s a pretty fantastic story.
