Compared to my month of May, June wasn’t all that exciting. For the most part, my time was taken up with work, reading, and a couple of new TV shows. Surprisingly, I was able to read and listen to quite a few books this past month. Sadly, I didn’t really stick to my hopeful TBR list or from my owned books, but hopefully this month will be better.
What I Read
I read 11 books totaling in 3,391 pages. I read across a few different moods, mainly mysterious, emotional, and adventurous. As for genres, I mostly read science fiction and mystery, with contemporary close behind. I mostly read fiction books that were medium to fast paced. Out of the six books on my TBR, I only read two.

What I Watched & What I Hope to Watch
I’m not sure if I’ll always include this section, but I binged watched a couple different shows that I really got into and figured I would share!
Ted Lasso, season 1 – I can’t believe I waited to watch this!
Grimm, seasons 1-6
Lucifer, season 5, part B
There were also a few last seasons/ series finales I watched.
What I Want to Watch:
iZombie – I just started this. I found that I wanted something a little more quirky/comedic (at least until Ted Lasso is back). Interested enough to probably finish the series.
Physical – I watched the first episode; not quite what I was expecting, but I think I want to give it a shot
Kevin can F*ck Himself – honestly just watching because of Annie Murphy; not bad so far
Virgin River – just a week away!
