Month In Review - June 2016

Happy July, Book Babes!

To start off the new month here's a recap of LAST month.

Slow Month - I gave myself a slow month so that I'd have plenty of time to be preparing for the very busy summer. There's a LOT going on over the next couple of months and I didn't want to be in a rush to prepare for all of it at the last minute, so I let June be leisurely on the reading front. I'm 2 books ahead of my yearly goal break-down at the moment, so I've got some wiggle room! I participated in Tome Topple and read 3 of my 500+ page books, which was a considerable win for me! I also read a lot of graphic novels in an effort to catch up on my Graphic Novel reading challenge for 2016, but overall I took it easy! July is a month of vacations so I'll be reading a lot and enjoying the summer-time.

Biblio Bebe - We're getting little boop's room together a little at a time and this month we've had fun painting and putting together the crib. I set up a little reading nook in there for story times. You can see a picture of it down in the Instagram section! Looking forward to buying LOTS of new storybooks for our little bibliophile to be!

How was your June?

Tell me all about it or link me your June Wrap-Up posts in the comments! I'd love to visit and see what bookish things you all have been up to recently!

Let's Be Friends!

Auggie is the 29 year old whirlwind owner of Auggie-Talk. A bibliobibuli by nature and a (potentially obsessive) lover of Diana Wynne Jones and Neil Gaiman. Not so secrety secret: She's been known to consume too much caffeine leading to hyperactive rants about her heinous lack of shelving and the high likelihood that Hermione Granger is her spirit animal.


  1. I love the photos and hope you have fun on your vacation!

  2. I just read The Raven Boys last month also.
