Books of 2015: June

June Books

This month I read a lot more books than last month!  It really helped that I spent a week at Victoria Beach with no wifi and no tv.  πŸ˜‰

11. Daddy Hugs by Nancy Tafuri
This was a cute little book.  For this month, I wanted to get books for Andrew to read to Autumn, so I picked mostly “Daddy” books.  This one was really cute.  There are little animal noises and it was super cute when Andrew would read those parts, too.

12. The Newlywed Cookbook by Kathy Moore & Roxanne Wyss
Lately, I’ve been borrowing cookbooks from the library to find new recipes! Pinterest is great, but I love being able to go through a book to pick things out.  This book had a lot of really fun ideas and I can’t wait to start making them.

13. Instant Mom by Nia Vardalos
I LOVED this book! Nia Vardalos is absolutely hilarious, and I love reading her writing.  She talks about how she got My Big Fat Greek Wedding made into a movie, and how she got her start in comedy, which I loved reading about.  The main topic of the book was about her struggles with infertility, and how they adopted a 3 1/2 year old girl.  Such an amazing story.  I recommend this book highly!

14. Veronica Mars: Mr Kiss & Tell by Rob Thomas
The next installment in the Veronica Mars story, this book was even better than the last one, imo.  Mostly because Logan is actually IN the book.  With the last one, I had been disappointed that he wasn’t in it.  I love Logan.  I read this one fairly quickly.  It’s a real page turner πŸ™‚ I enjoyed it!

15. A to Z of Wedding Style by Kate Bethune
This was a pretty interesting read.  Fun to read, too.  I read it cover to cover, as you would with a novel.. and I eventually skimmed and just read the things that I was interested in.  I liked the history in it, and the quotes from different people.  It was fun!

16. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Eh.  I wasn’t a huge fan of this honestly.  Mostly because I didn’t really like the main character.  I like John Green as a writer, this just wasn’t my favourite of his.

17. A Little Bit Wicked by Kristin Chenoweth
This was so much fun to read!  I love how positive Kristin is, and her writing style is great.  I really enjoyed reading this book and would definitely read it again.  Plus, it had recipes in it, too that I can’t wait to try.

18. Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen
This book was also eh.  I don’t know what it is… but it wasn’t really that enjoyable of a read.

19. Looking for Alaska by John Green
I’m on a bit of a John Green kick right now.  I like this one.  It was a sad story though. I wasn’t expecting it to be sad, and then it was πŸ™ well written though!

What have you been reading this month?

    1. I’m the same way! I’ve been slowly going through my stuff on pinterest.. but some of it is so old that by the time I get to it, I don’t even want to make it anymore.
      Plus, I have a vintage recipe box that I want to fill up with recipes πŸ™‚ This is the perfect way to do that!
