June Reading List

 June and July have been a crazy couple of months for me so I am a little late getting my ‘June Reading List’ up. However, I was able to get a little more back on track with my reading goal for the year. I am aiming to read a hundred books for this year. I was able to read five books during the month of June and am currently on books number thirty-two and thirty-three; I’m not sure if I will actually make it through a hundred books for the year, but hopefully I will land pretty close to my goal. 


Honey Pie, by Donna Kauffman

Honey Pie is the last book in the Cupcake Club series by Donna Kauffman, and I almost hate to admit this, but Honey Pie is my least favorite book of the series. I just felt like the storyline was trying too hard to bring everything full circle, and it honestly just kind of felt forced and fell flat. 


After inheriting her aunt’s property in Sugarberry Island, Honey D’Amourvell is determined to put down roots in this charming southern town. 


Once Upon A Royal Summer, by Teri Wilson

Love, love, love this book. Once Upon A Royal Summer is the perfect marriage of fairytale and real life. Plus, it is just such a great escape to dive into at the end of the day.


Lacey is thrilled to have her dream job of playing a princess at a theme pack in Florida. She loves the smiles that her job brings to the faces of children, especially to those who are in need of a special moment. Rumors fly around the theme park that the crown prince of Bella-Moritz is treating his young daughter to a trip to the theme park for her birthday. Prince Henry lost his wife four years ago and longs to treat his daughter to elements of a ‘normal’ childhood he never had. Disguised as tourist, Henry and his daughter are escorted around the park by Princess Sweet Pea {aka Lacey}; sparks start to fly between a real life prince and a theme park princess…


Savannah Comes Undone 

I didn’t realize until after the fact that Savannah Comes Undone is actually the second book in a series of three… So, I definitely recommend starting with the first book in the series, Savannah from Savannah {which actually has better review than Savannah Comes Undone}. This book has a good story line, but it is a little slow moving at times. I have read reviews on the first and third book in the series and they actually have better reviews than the second…


Savannah has a colorful mother who makes the lead story on the six o’clock news, which of course Savannah is mortified by. Her mother has chained herself to a downtown monument as a form of protest. 


Savannah who’s a journalist for the Savannah Chronicle. Along her journey Savannah discovers things about her mother and herself that she was not aware of before. Although a little slow, still a very fun read.


The Last Thing He Told Me

This is one of the best thriller books I have read in a few months. Highly recommend!


Hannah, who is married to Owen Michaels and is a stepmother to Bailey, thinks she is living a relatively normal life of running her own business, navigating the waters of motherhood, and playing the part of a supportive wife. Only to discover that her husband lead a completely different life before they met. 


Before disappearing Owen Michaels is able to smuggle a note to both his wife and daughter. While Hannah desperately tried to get in touch with Owen she finds that Owen’s boss has been arrested and that the start-up Owen was working at is under investigation. Hannah and Bailey both set out to discover the truth In the process of piecing together Owen’s past life they also realize that they are beginning to piece together an entirely new life of their own. 


The Anthropocene Reviewed, by John Green

The Anthropocene Review is not what I expected at all… I did not read the description of the book, and was under the impression that this was going to be another typical John Green book. When I first starting reading The Anthropocene Reviewed I was a little unsure, but ended up really loving this book. 


John Green tells short stories and experiences that are just a few pages long and then rates on a scale of five.
