Monthly wrap-up – June 2017

Hello friends, happy Sunday! How are you? I hope your week as good, and overall…Your month! As always, it’s time for the monthly-wrap-up of life happenings, bookish happenings and more.

in real life

Every single time, the non-sharer in me dreads to share some things happening in real life, but sometimes it just feels GOOD to rant and also…you’re curious about it all, aren’t you? I’m going to quickly bullet-point my way through the un-interesting facts.

  • My summer holidays are booked! Well, half of them already, that’s for sure, time will tell if I’ll go somewhere else. I’m not going to say where I am going right now because let’s keep a little bit of suspens here but….I AM EXCITED.
  • Work has been exhausting like crazy and I basically don’t know how to adult. I’m very, very much looking forward to a break.
  • It’s SUMMER so whatever, I sweated my way through June – no one ever says it’s cold in France and let me tell you, IT IS HOT – and will keep on going.

on books

I had, once again, quite a good reading month – I feel like this year’s headed very well and I’m on track to complete my reading challenge for sure. Two hours of commute every single day surely helps me reach my goals quicker than I expected to. I also read a lot of contemporaries – big surprise, I KNOW…. But well. It’s summer?!

Books I read

.Adorable and funny contemporary.

Read my full review here.


Interesting book and friendship, but ultimately lost me in the end.

Super-cute / definitely living to the hype.




I just have feelings about this book. LOADS.

This is not YA but it was a nice, fun change and look on Twitter / social media and its influences.

In one word: ADORABLE.

That was not what I expected. A bit disappointed, to be honest…





I don’t have tons of things to say about writing. It’s been going, well somedays and desperately slow some other days, but I probably need to stop beating myself up whenever I write under 1 K on the weekends. At least I’m doing something, right? Anyway, whenever I feel down about it all, my sister screams at me anyway and I remember Joey’s incredible advice and I try and write.

If I’m too lucky you’ll read this in about like 5 to 6 years, but most likely the story will stay on my computer ahah.

on the blog

I have been having a productive blogging month – but if I’m being completely honest here, I’m also looking forward to do a bit less because blogging can be quite exhausting. Also I have been feeling a bit out of the loop and stressed out about twitter / blogging and the mix of them both. If I feel okay, good, even, on WordPress, I like going on Twitter but somehow don’t feel like I belong. Anyone having these thoughts? That being said, I am so, so wonderfully HAPPY to be able to blog and love it and have all of you wonderful people reading my endless ramblings. You all are the best.

  1. Wooo! Enjoy your vacation! I also really enjoyed The Young Elites! I still need to read the last book in that series! I totally feel you on the difficulty of blogging. I just got back from a 3 week hiatus! I hope you have a great, stress-free July!

    Here’s my Weekly Recap!


    1. Thank you so much, Tracy! ❀ Oh, did you enjoy the second book in The Young Elites series? I haven't read it yet but I'm eager to πŸ™‚ I hope you'll have a lovely July as well! ❀


  2. Hi Marie! I have read a ton of good books this month but the one that surprised me e most was Omens by Kelley Armstrong. I was afraid it would be a Horror novel but it was a paranormal mystery/romance and a great start to a series by one of my favorite authors Kelley Armstrong. I kicked myself that I didn’t trust her to write as she always does. I also opened my Free Little Library in my front yard this month and am excited to see it take off. I hope you are doing well!

      1. Last Sunday my post was about my Free Little Library. The concept is that you take a book and leave a book, so it’s a convenient source for books. My neighborhood has about five of them. With he number of free books we get it’s nice to pass them along!

  3. Thank you for sharing your updates for June!
    The Anatomical Shape of a Heart sounds very interesting and I added it to my TBR. I am also looking forward to reading You Know Me Well πŸ™‚
    All the best for your novel! I know how it feels to have bad days where the words don’t flow. Sometimes it helps to keep on plugging on, other times it is good to take a break!
    I am also on twitter but also not getting in the groove of things. I like joining writing chats (such as #storysocial on Wednesdays 9PM EST) which is a fun way to meet new people while chatting about writing. They do get time consuming though!
    Looking forward to #SFATW πŸ™‚

  4. Yes, I completely understand with the Twitter feeling of not belonging! All I do is retweet stuff on Twitter because I feel like my Tweets are useless! I have a Twitter for my blog which I haven’t started using but I’m thinking of starting to tweet on it.

  5. I’ve had a really great reading month and I’m really happy to have had two of them back to back! I think my standout read this month was hands down Now I Rise! I hadn’ really looked too much into the series before requesting the ARC for the sequel so discovering that it was AWESOME was really great!

    It looks like you had a really successful reading month as well! I’m really happy to see that you really enjoyed Queens Of Geek, Always And Forever Lara Jean and When Dimple Met Rishi because they are all on my TBR too and it gives me a positive push to read them soon whenever someone else loved them!

  6. Wow, holiday is always exciting, especially since you’ve been working hard and you totally deserve it! I haven’t read the books that you read last month so I can’t really give any commentary. But When Dimple Met Rishi is high on my to-read list. I’m sooo looking forward to getting the physical copy — hopefully soon enough haha.

    “If I feel okay, good, even, on WordPress, I like going on Twitter but somehow don’t feel like I belong.” –> This. Is. Absolutely. True. At least I also feel that way sometimes. I’ve been blogging for a few years and most of my bloggy friends have stopped blogging. I miss them so much cause we used to chat on Twitter a lot and these days my Twitter seems so lonely. So I guess I find it hard to fit in with the community.

    I’m super grateful though for the new people I met online recently! πŸ˜€ There’s indeed always a bright side to every negative thing.

    June was a productive month for me! I finished two books and I feel so accomplished since I didn’t read for months thanks to reading & blogging slump. I totally deserve a cookie! πŸ˜›

      I'm feeling better knowing you are feeling the same way about Twitter. I find it hard as well to fit in on here – at least we're not alone, and we have WordPress πŸ™‚

      YES, you deserve a GIANT COOKIE for that! This is so great – I hope this means your slump is gone for good and you'll be back on track with reading, blogging and loving it πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much for your sweet comment ❀ ❀


  7. I’m with you on feeling out of the loop on twitter. I tend to browse through my timeline instead of actually contributing to it. Plus book twitter can get really dramatic at times and I prefer to live in a happy bubble instead of letting the drama consume me.

    I’m intrigued by your travel destination. Is it someplace warm, cold or a little bit of everything haha.

    I adored the Anatomical Shape of a Heart. It was such a sweet contemporary and I especially love how sex positive it is.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Same here. I’m glad to hear you’re feeling the same way! I feel a bit better just browsing, or sometimes ignoring it. Twitter can be such an amazing media to connect with bloggers and authors, but it’s also overwhelming at times.

      Well it’s in Europe (I’m from France, I don’t know if you knew) and it’s not really that hot ahah πŸ˜› Any guesses? πŸ˜›

      I’m SO happy you loved The Anatomical Shape just as well – it was such a great story, I agree, and yes for sex positivity – there is too little of that in YA books.

      Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Lois, I hope you’ll have an amazing month ❀

      1. Plus I find it hard to juggle all the social media sites haha. Twitter to me is just a place for me to randomly spew some nonsense to the world. It definitely gets overwhelming and sometimes I feel like there’s this pressure that I have to contribute when I know I don’t have to, if that makes sense.

        I had no idea you were from France. We’re practically neighbours haha. I’m from Wales. So I’m thinking you’re off on a European or Scandinavian adventure.

        I’m told her new release, Alex, Approximately is also very sex positive and I am dying to read that book.

      2. That makes SO MUCH sense, really – I have this exact feeling. I feel like I should be speaking up and contributing but I’m not so much, and it makes me feel guilty. Weirdest feeling ever, isn’t it?!

        OH REALLY? That’s so great! I went a lot of times to England but never to Wales, I need to go there soon, it seems so pretty ❀ And you're right, I'm going somewhere in Europe and not too far from where you are ahah πŸ™‚

  9. it seems like you’ve had such a great reading month! i really want to read when dimple met rishi, it is definitely the type of contemporary that fits this time of the year for me. it’s now winter where i live, but i feel like i always want to read shorter and fast-paced books during the winter break, because then i get a feeling of being productive. i mean, if i take over five days to read a book, even if it is a 500+ pages book, i’ll be frustrated for not doing it faster. so, that’s why my plan is to read a lot of contemporaries for this month, hahah.
    i hope you have a fantastic july, marie! and have a great trip! πŸ™‚

  10. Oh it seems like you had a great reading month this month Marie, there are so many amazing books on your list! The Young Elites and Queens of Geek are two on my to-read list, two I’m hoping to get around to soon, this year at the very least. Also I need to read Always and Forever Lara Jean as well, I can’t believe I haven’t already because I loved the first two books in the series.
    I hope your writing goes better next month; Joey’s advice is right a dinosaur wouldn’t give up so neither should you! πŸ˜€

    I’ve felt a little disconnected blogging wise lately too. Things can get overwhelming sometimes, so I hope your new schedule/plans make things easier for you!
    I struggle so much with twitter too!! I feel like I don’t quite fit in there; it and bookstagram are the areas where I don’t *quite* feel comfortable online, and also I’m a bit more conservative than most twitter users. Not that different opinions are in any way bad, but sometimes it can all get a little overwhelming xD.

    You read quite a lot, so good for you πŸ™‚ even if the results in how much you loved the books varied. I hear you on the writing but also on the Twitter and not exactly belonging. I feel like everyone is having such relevant conversations on there, constantly reacting and commenting on time, while I miss half the stuff happening. I don’t think I am made out for Twitter.

    I’m loving how you showcased the books you read this month! 8 is a good number, right!? I’m so jealous of your 2 hour commute to devote solely to reading, lol… though I’m sure you get tired of it! I’m so wanting to read that last Lara Jean… I’m so glad you liked it!

    Twitter for me is where I share posts I LOVED and support some of my favorite bloggers. I’m not sure I get the point otherwise, though I do get a few hits on my blog due to tweets! They (the goodreads group for YA book bloggers) are planning a twitter talk for Cinder I was thinking to try that… it would be my first talk on twitter.

I also relate to your writing struggles. Some days, it’s great and I can write a lot, but I rarely write in the weekends (because I’m just too busy) and I beat myself up for it too.

    Oh, and I can also relate to the Twitter thing! I feel fine and part of the community when I’m blogging, but Twitter is a whole other universe. I feel like there are all these groups and everyone knows everyone already and I’m just floating around. I know it’s partly my fault because I don’t really tweet a lot (I never know what to say!), but it still sucks. I feel like I need a Twitter Crash Course πŸ˜‰

  20. Oh my gosh I am seriously the same way about Twitter and always have been. I just started my book-blogging Twitter account, but I’ve had a personal one for years and always felt uber awkward about using it and now that I have one for my blog – mainly because so many people of this niche are using it??? – I’m like….. what do I saaaayyyy? I don’t have anything of value to tweet about. And i don’t know how to interact with people there??? It’s all around pretty uncomfortable, but I am trying hard to find my footing in hopes that using Twitter will be rewarding (aka more blog traffic would be nice)!

  24. I find Twitter very intimidating…. I feel like if you are not on twitter EVERY day, then you are always out of the loop. I find it to be a time suck, so I don’t get on twitter too often. I really don’t know how people juggle blogging, boostagram, and bookish twitter… It overwhelms me lol

    1. AGREED. But there are just too many things happening on Twitter and I can’t follow, nor do I feel like I am “good enough” or something to actually contribute, so…I’m avoiding it at times ahah πŸ™‚
      I have NO IDEA how they do it. Just the blogging part is pretty overwhelming ahah πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much, Amanda! πŸ™‚


  25. Omg I must remember Joey’s advice whenever I feel bad about my writing hahaha thank you for that πŸ™‚
