Here I am. I made it. This post was supposed to be up like three days ago, but I have only just gotten to it. I still working off the high from this long weekend. If any of you were wondering, my Canada Day weekend was fabulous and I loved every second of it!
On to actual business though…I am honestly at a lost here. June was supposed to be THE month. And it started out as THE month, but slowly it dwindled into some month. Here’s the thing…school has been a big issue these past couple of months so things have been real slow for me in academics and really great in the book world. Then….school decides to become a thing again…and basically it is one big mess. I am a big mess. And my reading/blogging suffered for it.
But if anything I did have a good month overall! I had some really great reads and got some even greater books. Plus I got to go to things!!! And I’m…well. I’m okay overall!
Let’s get into it shall we?
What Rendz Read
An Ember in the Ashes & A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
These were two rereads in preparation for book 3!!! I had the best time rereading them. I had forgotten a lot, so it was necessary that I read them again. AND IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING, I LOVED THEM AGAIN AND THEY ARE BOTH FABULOUS BOOKS THAT YOU MUST READ!
A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. UTTERLY FANTASTIC. IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND. I AM DEAD DEAD DEAD BUT SO ALIVE. I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE HURT AND HAPPY AT THE SAME TIME. My Full Review

Save the Date by Morgan Matson
For my first Matson book, it was quite fun..but I had my issues. Full Review to Come!
Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf
Ughhhhh I just wasn’t feeling it…Full Review to Come.
That’s a total of eight books! Plus two more that I started…which I didn’t finish, but you’ll hear about those more in next months wrap-up. Could I have done better with the reading?…yeah. But I hit a major slump after Reaper and there is a good reason for it!
Once again, my mail box was packed and I attended a few events where I was lucky to get books and I visited the book store a couple times too! So those are all my excuses for the big haul I’m about to unravel. *smiles*
Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
I was feeling down…so clearly buying a book was the cure! I am so excited to get to it!
Save the Date by Morgan Matson
I went to her signing in Toronto, and it was absolutely fabulous!

Posts from June!
My very first original book tag!! Have you had the chance to read it yet?
And a piece of fanart I shared on Twitter and Instagram in honour of my love for An Ember in the Ashes!
Do you like it? XD It took quite a long time to make, but I am very proud of the results!
I am so, so behind on so, so many reads. It is absolutely unbelievable. What I’m trying to say is that this list is going to be quite long, and I probably won’t get to everything, but I’m going to try!!! *The usual speech I give every month*

Well…I don’t feel stressed at all. I’m probably forgetting a book somewhere in there. Did I mention how big a mess I am at the moment? But I’ll just go with the flow.
Alright people. That’s it for this wrap up post. I have been slumping in terms of good content blogging lately, but I am hoping to up the ante this month with some more pizzazz and some fun things that I have planned! I hope you all stick around to read!
