June Wrap-Up + Book Haul…A Little Bit Of This & A Little Bit Of That ;)

Hello Bookworms! When this goes live I’ll be counting down the last few hours in the office before I can do my FriYAy Dance ๐Ÿค—ย it’s been a long week & I am thrilled to finally start the weekend *huge sigh of relief* I’m actually participating in the #Smuthathon Readathon hosted by the lovely GingerReadsLainey & RileyMarie over on Booktube & so far it has been a awesome new experience ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผย Those of you lovely readers that have been around this blog for a while now know that I primarily read YA Fantasy/Fantasy however, sometimes a gal needs a pallette cleanser ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I am finding enjoyment in the books that I’m reading & so you’ll see the occasional New Adult, Rom-Com, or smutty read review on Lair Of Books. If this happens to be your wheel house, please leave me some recommendations in the comments down below ๐Ÿ’œย For those who love Fantasy, fear not! I have a ton of titles I’ll be reading & reviewing throughout the rest of the year ๐Ÿ˜‰ย But 1st, let’s Wrap-up June…

LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoffย (Unique AF! Kristoff really built a world from scratch including the slang, never read anything like this)โœจ4.5 STARS โœจย 

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher (Audiobook, not exactly what I was expecting–RTC)ย 

The Queen Of Crows (The Armored Saint #2) by Myke Cole (Really hoped this would’ve gone a different way but still hoping for a strong follow-up–RTC)

Whisper Of The Tide (Song of the Current #2) by Sarah Tolcser (Favorite read of the month! EPIC & satisfying end to this duology)โœจ5ย STARS โœจย

Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghartย (RTC Grace & Fury was a 3.5 star read for me; favorite item in this box is costume mask necklace. Would’ve LOVED the journal if it was for a full year, instead it covers July-December 2018)

JUNE BOOK OF THE MONTH

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoangย (Recently found out that this is a series and after reading & listening to so many rave reviews, this is exciting news!!! really looking forward to this read)

Season 2 binge of Luke Cage was even better than expected! This is a Netflix show I really enjoy watching with the hubby for so many reasons! Ok, for me it’s all about the Wutang soundtracks Luke listens to while he kicks a** ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผย Luke is so old school & the show reflects that. The first season really made me fall in love with this show but season 2 solidified that love ๐Ÿ’“ย Luke is going through a transformation of sorts & by the very end he isn’t the same man we’ve come to love and trust. Also, we get introduced to a new character who challenges Luke & I surprisingly ended up enjoying. Why of why did it have to end? season 3 where are you?


June was one of those months that had me feeling off kilter which was mostly due to Bookcon at the very beginning of the month. I didn’t expect to read much of anything but ended up happy withย the 5 books that I did finish. Surprisingly, I didn’t watch any movies. July however is already off to an AMAZING start so stay tuned for a more exciting Wrap-up/Book Haul for this month ๐Ÿ˜‰
