Bookmark Lit Bulletin | June 2022

Posted July 4, 2022 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 1 Comment

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.


June was helped a lot by cookbooks, as is usually the case for at least one month of the year. I went a little crazy during a sale and read 3 out of 4 new ones in June. I also DNFed a book I was excited about, which sucks and took up a lot of reading time before I quit. Luckily I added a new favorite to the list this month in EVERY SUMMER AFTER.
