June Wrap Up

It's been a busier month than usual here on To Read or Not to Read? but I hope you're having as much of a blast as I am! Miss some of the recent goings on? No worries!

It was awesome to share the newly revealed cover of a middle grade novel I've been dying to read:

I also hosted a giveaway for Cheree Alsop's newly completed series GIRL FROM THE STARS SERIES. If you like tough heroines and space opera, check them out!

As you know, this was the Month of Memes! I had so much fun exploring corners of the book blogging world I've never seen before and I plan to keep on doing just that. I hope you'll stick around for more!

Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme I've been doing for awhile now and I really had fun with the two topics I participated in this month -especially the Favorite Heroines. I had no idea I had so many!

Now for some of the new memes I played around with.

Teaser Tuesdays are fun because it helps me keep ya'll updated on what I'm reading -which I'll be the first to admit I have gotten pretty terrible at. Don't look at my Goodreads 'Currently Reading' shelf. Seriously. Don't. Do. It. (I'm begging you.)

Shelf Control is exactly the meme I've been looking for! I have so many unread owned books glaring at me whenever I bring something new home from the library, so featuring one of these TBR beauties reminds me how good they sound. Look! I'm already halfway through The 39 Steps!

#BookmarkMonday is a fabulous idea! Have I ever mentioned how much I love bookmarks? How much I obsess over bookmarks? That I have a drawer full of them? Here's my chance to show off my collection!

I looooove Exploring My Bookshelves! Just another collection I get to show off. ^_^ But seriously, some of these topics are a little mind-bending. You answer specific questions based on your personal book collection. So far, this Father's Day one was my favorite. I *achem* went a little overboard.


Right. So. I'm a little into Harry Potter right now.

But just a little.

I swear.

Serendipitously, I came across an awesome weekly Harry Potter meme. So. Much. Fun. Unfortunately, since I haven't finished the series yet, I won't be able to participate every week, but I'll sure have fun with the ones I can!

And speaking of Harry Potter, July happens to be Harry Potter Month and participating blogs get to compete for points to win the House Cup.

I am so in.

Which means that all those Harry Potter book reviews I haven't gotten around to yet -any and all thoughts and predictions I've been taking notes on- are finally going to see the light of day on the blog this month.

Three cheers, anyone?

Thanks for visiting. Fly casual!

What was your favorite post from this month?


  1. LOL! I love how into Harry Potter you are right now because I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU every time I reread the series ♥ I'm really happy you're doing HPMotW from time to time and that you joined up in HPMonth too :D Happy July! x

    1. Yay! I'm so happy I discovered HPMotW, because now I have a whole blog posse cheering me on and discussing it with me! ^_^
      I really need to kick myself into gear for the HPMonth. It's such a fantastic idea!
