Bookish Discoveries of 2019

For this week’s Top 10 Tuesday prompt I decided to go with new authors I discovered in 2019. This list is all the authors that I read from for the first time and I loved them enough to want to continue to pick up either their back-list or any books they may publish in the future!

1Now one of my all-time favourite fantasy authors!

June Wrap Up

I had a fantastic reading month, oh my goodness! Nothing below a 4 out of 5 stars. I don’t think that has happened to me since I started my blog so I am pretty stoked with my outcome for June! I think my not having a pre-established TBR was definitely a success and I feel I will be adopting that practice in the months to come because of how prolific my reading was. By far my best reading month I think ever…
