June Wrap Up 2018

June of 2018 may be my best reading month ever. I read eighteen books this month. I have read so many incredible books this month, with many coming in under a four or five-star rating – something I give out rarely. I am beyond shocked and, honestly, quite giddy over these ratings. I am so pleased to see a month where I enjoyed a large number of what I’ve read. June was also a month where I got super on top of all my posts, trying to post more bookish discussions and writing lots of reviews. A lot of these books don’t have reviews posted just yet, but they’re coming. I’m currently scheduling posts for August now (oops) so prepare to see them popping up and be patient.

Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother’s death, she leaves letters at her grave. It’s the only way Juliet can cope.

When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can’t resist writing back. Soon, he’s opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they’re not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, sparks will fly as Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.
