Bookmark Lit Bulletin | June 2020

Posted July 2, 2020 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 5 Comments


BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

It’s funny because I keep introducing theses posts like “wow, I thought X month was bad, now check out this one!” but genuinely nothing compares to the garbage pail that was June… and I mean that literally. I read FIVE books in June which is truly an all-time low for me since blogging. So low, in fact, that I completely forgot to even write this blog post. What even is there to wrap up? lol.

June: Read every day, even just a little bit ❌

Yeah. June was terrible. I barely read anything, to be honest. One of my FIVE books was even a novella. I really, really hope things change in July. We’re going to continue to spend a lot of time at home especially with the new puppy, so maybe I can enjoy some quiet reading time while he’s napping and we’re not working for 10 days (!!).


Puppy! | We got a dog this past week! I’ll be sharing more about him soon.

Watching/Eating Recaps | These are always fun and easy posts for me to write, so hopefully you’ll see some things we’ve been watching and eating over the past couple of months.

Vacation Reads | I’m going to be off work for 10 days starting tomorrow, so I hope to share a quick TBR post with my July reads overall as well as some specific ones I’m in the mood for during my vacation days.


Check out my July TBR post! ? (To come!)

How was your reading in June?
What do you have up next in July?
