It Happened on the Blog-June 2019

It was my birthday month in June and I SPLURGED! I bought a lot of books and pampered myself as someone is wont to do when it’s their birthday. ๐Ÿ™‚




Reviews off the blog (Goodreads)–I plan on incorporating these reviews in later blog posts.

Stand Out Reads

Second Hand Curses is probably in my top 5 audiobooks. It’s a sort of fairytale retelling, where faeries are not friendly. The Corpse Played Dead was a book I was most looking forward to. I received the ARC via Netgalley. It did not disappoint.

Total Books Read

This month I’ve read a total of 7 books. Not bad really, for me anyway.

Book Haul

Okay, so I might have went a little overboard.

Video Game Reviews

None. But my review for Dragon Quest XI is incoming. Well, It’s not technically going to be a review. But, at least I finally finished it! Woot! ๐Ÿ˜€

Personal Update

Guess what? The birds that nested last month returned again and now we have 4 chicks. They just hatched and are so cute. My birthday was really nice. I had made a triple layer mousse cake. I wanted to test my skills and it turned out great. We went out to eat and it was just good times all round.

Goals for July

  1. I really have to get these outstanding reviews written.
  2. I want to at least write one Shady Talk article.

Aww baby birds. That cake you made sounds so good.


I’m glad you had a lovely birthday month, and yay for spoiling yourself! I really want to re-read Illuminae and Gemina as I still need to read the third book.

Happy belated birthday! It’s a good reason to splurge on some books. I hope you enjoy all the lovely books you bought in celebration ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s super cool how you have baby birds around, and a triple layer mousse cake sounds really good! My favorite June read has to be the Tawny Man Trilogy by Robin Hobb. I binge read it in just over a weekend; it was so good.

Best of wishes with your July goals!

Happy birthday! I hope you love all the books you bought. Have a great July!
