Monthly Recap: June 2018

Posted July 3, 2018 by Rowena in Features | 9 Comments

June was for Chach coming home from her mission, Bren and Ken being gone in Utah with Chloe and spending as much time as I could with Baby Caiden. Summer has begun in So Cal and the weather has been pretty great so I can’t complain. Above, you’ll see a picture from Bren and Ken’s trip to Utah. They’re huge High School Musical nerds so they made Chloe take them to the high school where the movies were filmed and this was one of the pictures they took from there. Pretty cool and cute baby alert!

On with the books and other stuff…

My favorite read of the month goes to The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang because it was such a damn good story. I completely adored Stella and was obsessed with Michael. Together they were a fantastic couple and their romance blew me away. So, so good.

My least favorite read of the month goes to the book that I couldn’t bring myself to finish because it was boring. That book is More than Words by Mia Sheridan.

  1. Wow you had a pretty awesome reading month!! Sorry More than words was a flop. That sucks. However, you had lots of reads that were at least 4 stars so thats awesome! Have a wonderful July!

    • Rowena

      Thanks, Samantha! I was really happy with my reading in June even with More than Words being a flop. The Kiss Quotient more than made up for anything. Ha. Thanks, same to you!

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful month here darling. I have just been binge watching on my favorite tv shows. I have Melt For you on my kindle waiting to be read so I can’t wait to grab it up. My sister has visited the High School Musical sets too…she was a bit obsessed with the movies in High School. Looks like they had a blast.

    • Rowena

      Thanks, I thought I had a great month. What shows are your favorites? My daughter and niece are still obsessed with the HSM movies and they’re so old now. Haha. Melt for You is a book that I want to read soon. Wish me luck!

      • I can’t wait to hear what you think about Melt For you. Hope its a good one.

        Some of my favorite TV shows that I love to binge on especially in the summer, are Blue Bloods, Jericho, Star Trek, and Diagnosis Murder. Have you watched any of them?

          • Rowena

            Hey Renee! I’m sorry this is such a late response but I haven’t watched Blue Bloods in a long while. I’m so far behind in that series that I’m pretty overwhelmed by the idea of picking it back up again.

  3. Rowena

    I haven’t watched it, I’m like an entire season behind. What happened? I’m all kinds of nosy..haha.
