June 2014 Monthly Wrap Up

Well, summer is OFFICIALLY here.  This summer will be a little more hectic for me than usual because my husband has a sabbatical and we have a major trip planned, so things will be a bit more off-schedule than usual.  But, it's all fun!

In June, I read:
Benny and Shrimp by Katerina Mazetti
The Hatmaker's Heart by Carla Stewart
The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
Running Secrets by Arleen Williams
The Rummy Club by Anoop Ahuja Judge
No Country by Kalyan Ray
The Wife, the Maid, and the Mistress by Ariel Lawhon
The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman
12 Huge Mistakes Parents Can Avoid by Tim Elmore (review to be posted 7/2)
Wake by Anna Hope
In the Field of Grace by Tessa Afshar (review to be posted 7/3)

Right now, I'm reading:
On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder (still reading it to my daughter!)
Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani
The Boleyn Reckoning by Laura Andersen

In other news:

  • So this is going to be a weird month on the blog.  I'll be posting up until we leave on our trip and then there will be only 1 book review for the rest of the month (one that has already been scheduled).  It isn't that I won't have time to write reviews--I will have time for that.  I just won't have time to do all the following up on the posts.  As a result, August will be a BUSY month on the blog as I'll be scheduling any reviews I write during vacation to post once we get back.
  • I will, however, be continuing to post Saturday Snapshots--simply because there isn't nearly as much following up required for those.  No surprise, but the pictures will be from our trip and I'm expecting that these will go long past when we actually return!  If you would like to see more pictures as they happen, feel free to follow me at instagram.  I'm "mdawnott" over there (and I'm set to private, but if I know who you are, I'll approve you).
  • An update on my Summer Reading Challenge.  If you remember, I pledged to read 35 books between May 1st and September 1st.  Well, I'm at 25 now...I think I have this one!
