June 2020 Monthly Wrap-Up

Let me just be upfront about this. I didn’t do so hot with guessing which books I’d pick up in June. Epic fail for sure! I only read 4 of them!! Yikes. But, that’s okay. I did read some other books instead…

Here was my June TBR.

The Proposal ~ Review


Title: The Proposal
Series: The Wedding Date #2
Author: Jasmine Guillory
Release Date: Oct 30, 2018
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Blurb: The author of The Wedding Date serves up a novel about what happens when a public proposal doesn’t turn into a happy ending, thanks to a woman who knows exactly how to make one on her own…

When someone asks you to spend your life with him, it shouldn’t come as a surprise–or happen in front of 45,000 people.

When freelance writer Nikole Paterson goes to a Dodgers game with her actor boyfriend, his man bun, and his bros, the last thing she expects is a scoreboard proposal. Saying no isn’t the hard part–they’ve only been dating for five months, and he can’t even spell her name correctly. The hard part is having to face a stadium full of disappointed fans…

At the game with his sister, Carlos Ibarra comes to Nik’s rescue and rushes her away from a camera crew. He’s even there for her when the video goes viral and Nik’s social media blows up–in a bad way. Nik knows that in the wilds of LA, a handsome doctor like Carlos can’t be looking for anything serious, so she embarks on an epic rebound with him, filled with food, fun, and fantastic sex. But when their glorified hookups start breaking the rules, one of them has to be smart enough to put on the brakes…

June 2020 TBR

I don’t know why it’s always such fun for me to put together a TBR each month because I have yet to read everything on my TBR for a month. But, I think I just love lists and I love looking at books, so TBR it is! Mostly I look and see what’s currently available on my wishlist through Overdrive and/or Hoopla. This always changes of course, and I’m never sure about when holds will come through for the books that I had to put on hold to actually be able to get my hands on them. But, here’s a list of some potential reads for me coming in June. Oh, and I’ll be taking a little vacation this month, and I never get as much reading done as I hope to get done while on vacation. However, it’ll just be me and my family in a secluded cabin on a lake. So, I’m envisioning some sun soaking with a book in my hand!
