June 2020 Monthly Wrap Up

June 2020 Monthly Wrap Up


I’m resigned to the fact that 2020 is just a raging dumpster fire of a year. However, I find myself actively looking for the positives that I can find. Here’s what I came up with in June:

  • My library opened up for curbside pickup, so I’ve been making use of that. The staff at the library knows me pretty well already.

  • My reviews are being posted in a timely manner. I posted all my reviews from June already, with the exception of two!

  • I’ve seen a lot of people coming together, supporting each other, and lifting each other up through these difficult times. It’s a beautiful things to see people working together and to be a part of this.


My favorite book of June 2020 was You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson.
