Hello, book lovers!
We’ve come to the end of June (way too fast if you ask me). With that comes the Sundown Rundown where I wrap all that I’ve reviewed this month. It’s a great opportunity to catch up on any reviews you might’ve missed this month.
So, as the sun is going down and the fireflies are lighting up, the summer ay turns to night, relax and take a scroll. Personally, I’m going to grab a glass of wine.

Magnus Chase has had a difficult life. Living on the streets and still grieving the death of his mother that he knows was murdered. Dying wasn’t much better. Winding up in Valhalla, Magnus must prove he is worthy by taking on a quest to prevent Ragnarok from coming too soon and awakening his sword is just the start. And oh yeah, it talks, so getting it to shut up is tricky too.
Favorite Book This Month: We Are The Ants was freaking phenom through and through! I geeked so hard and just fell in love over and over. Gorgeous story and imagery and writing.
Least Favorite Book This Month: Where the Truth Lies was just ridiculous and it sucks to say that. It felt like too much was being shoved together without much thought to the plotline. It came off self-centered and empty though it tries so hard to garner emotion. There just was just too much that didn’t need to be in it and too much that had no focus. I had such high hopes for this one and it fell like a meteor to the Earth.
Six books. I had planned to get a couple more in, I swear. LOL. This month has been jam-packed with exhaustion from work. I’m getting my schedule going again. But don’t worry. I’ve got several more books to jabber about.
More to come soon…
