June Monthly Recap

Here's our monthly recap!

We decided to start doing a monthly recap. Since we post and read a ton we will hightlight what our favorite things were and what we hope to read the upcoming month. If you would like to see all our posts, here are our weekly wrap-ups.

Our Weekly Wrap-ups last month:

Ash's Month!

♥ We saw Incredibles 2 in theaters

♥ We also saw Deadpool 2 in theaters. It's even better than the first one!

♥ Father's Day was this month, and we got my dad and hubby a new grill. 
♥ John entered a cook-off and got second place for his chicken and third for his ribs!

Some other great pictures taken in June:

June was a good month. I didn't do anything too special... and all the cool things I did, Ash already mentioned. Darn her. I don't take a lot pictures so I don't really have any to post. But it was a fun month. 

It was a pretty normal month of reading for me. I read 30 books for the month. So it was a good month for reading. The end of the month was a little slower for me.

How was your month of June? Anything new and exciting or just good ole' fun? Did you get a lot of reading done? 


  1. Some great books this past month! And some good ones you hope to read in July.
    Check out my June wrap-up post

  2. Som great books for all of you this past month and some I definitely want to read as well! The Others series by Bishop is a favorite of mine!

  3. Sounds like you guys had a great month! I just read a really good review of The Last Time I Lied, and I'm also planning to read Contagion and #murdertrending:-)

  4. Oooo Who R U Really! I remember reading that a while ago and liking it (seriously creepy, am I right??) so I'm so glad you both ended up liking it as well. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on The Elites, Ash. It's definitely a controversial middle book so I'm curious to see how it turns out for you. I hope you both have a lovely July!
