So, since having to list soooo many books in the “books bought” section in my last monthly summary post, I did what any economically-sensible 20-something would do: I decided to not include that part in my monthly summary posts. 😛 This may change in the future because I do like sharing my TBR with you all but it just became such a hassle to keep track of!
Anyway, this month was a great one for me! I read 7 books, 4 of which were what I would consider 5 star reads (wow!), and got to attend some pretty great literary events like Luminato’s #ReadWomen2014 event, Luminato’s Literary Picnic, an advanced screening of HBO’s The Leftovers, IFOA’s weekly reading with Emma Healey, Tom Rachman, and Linda Holeman, aaaand I was lucky enough to be invited to have lunch with Emma Healey. I also made myself a list of 10 Things I’d Like to do This Summer (Besides Read)! I’ve already completed some of these tasks, so stay tuned for my update next week!
Outside of reading, my month has been pretty steady. The weather is finally feeling a bit more summery so I’ve been walking to the ice cream store and reading at the park a lot more! I love it. Those are probably two of my favourite things to do in the summer.

How was your June? Did you read anything great? What are you planning to read in July?
