Books I've Read & Places I've Loved: June 2017

The fact that it's almost July is crazy. It's already the second month of my summer vacation, and honestly, I'm amazed I've made it this far. June was definitely one of the hardest months of the year so far. I made plans that went unfulfilled, I started books that went unfinished, and I studied for tests that went unpassed (not a word, I know, but just for alliteration's sake). 

BOOKS I'VE READ

I hate to say this, but I didn't read any books this month. I started one, but it still remains unfinished on my bedside table. Like I mentioned above, this month was tough, but I have a few books I'm excited to read for July, so hopefully the end of next month will see me having read at least one of them :-). 

PLACES I'VE LOVED

Elk Grove Public Library

On the second day of my vacation, my mom had to go to the library for a work thing. I tagged along with her because I love libraries and there was the promise of coffee afterward (am I easy to sway? Probably...). While there, I sat at one of the wooden tables and worked on some of the things I posted this month and watched as lots of people came through to get books. Like I said, I love libraries but I hadn't been to one in a couple years. It was a great way to spend a Tuesday morning. 

 

Last year, July was the hardest month. I was going through a whole bunch of stuff, so in a way I was almost expecting this year to be the same. Oddly enough, June ended up being tough. Luckily, I have many traveling plans, writing ideas, and friends to see for next month. If your June was also kind of difficult, I hope July brings you lots of sunshine (but not a lot of heat because goodness gracious it's hot right now...).
