Stacking the Shelves & Wrappin’ It Up June 2015

Stacking the Shelves

We have reached the halfway point of 2015! WUT?! I feel a little like I’m back in the groove with reading and blogging, so lets see what I got up to this month…

The Books:

No purchases this month (that I can remember). Yus! After last month’s haul, I really didn’t need anything else to add to my shelves. Which likely means there will be purchases next month… ūüėČ

Movies and TV Shows:

This was the month of movies! I¬†took a free trial of Amazon Prime, which included access to unlimited Prime Movies. So I¬†watched Whiplash, Unthinkable, Non-Stop, Zero Dark Thirty, Taken 3, and The Lucky One. My sister recommended Whiplash, it was definitely… different, but enjoyable. Thrillers were clearly the theme for this month! And it was very weird to see Chapman from Orange is the New Black in a romantic lead role with Zac Efron!

 

Wrappin’ It Up!

As always, I’m linking to the latest Oh, The Books! weekly recap post so you can find more amazing things to read!

In Case You Missed It:

Confess Cover Reveal

This month I read and reviewed Ordinary Beauty (4/5), Confess (4.5/5), Slammed (5/5), and Nowhere But Here (3.5/5). I have read more than this, but I need to get some time to write up the reviews, and then cross-post too.

This month I also interviewed Catherine Linka, author of A Girl Called Fearless and A Girl Undone, including a giveaway for an eBook copy of A Girl Called Fearless. Discussion-wise, I asked if you ever get overwhelmed by it all, and wrote So. Much. Yes, which one kind reader described as being about women, feminism and books. I know in last month’s wrap-up I talked about a new feature releasing in June – fear not! It is on it’s way!

My most popular posts in May (except for TTT posts) were my review for All The Light We Cannot See and Do You Ever Get Overwhelmed By It All?

    Um, you didn’t buy any books this month?! WHAT? ūüôā I’m glad you’re back into a reading groove. Can’t wait to see your review for The Nightingale. i saw you gave it FIVE STARS, which is rare for you.

  3. Isn’t it a great feeling to be back into the swing of things (reading/blogging)? Unfortunately, I didn’t have as much self control as you last month. sigh. there’s just sooooo many good books to buy!

    I see you watched Zero Dark Thirty! One of my all time favourite. ūüôā How did you like it?

    I wish you all the best of July, Rachel! Also, thanks for the mention.

  4. You’ve had a productive month! Look at the posts and reading, and how do you find so many good posts to link up. I read a great post and then remember the topic and can’t for the life of me remember what the post actually was. I need to get a better bookmarking system I think. Some great links going on here, though. I love nothing more than a good blog link both for discovering new blogs, but also just for all the things you discover!
