If you’re a regular visitor of my blog, you know that I only listen to audio books that I’ve previously read and loved. If this is your first time visiting, well, now you know, lol! Rereading via audio is like finding your favorite movie on TV where you just feel compelled to sit and watch it because you love it so much. It’s fun to relive your favorite moments with no pressure. The following are my listens for June.


Lead by Kylie Scott

Kindle | Audible

I couldn't wait for Jimmy's story, to see how he ticked and to immerse myself in his world. Through Lena's eyes I totally got to do that and it was pretty freaking amazing! I would give LEAD 6 stars if I could! [Full Review]



Ride Steady and Walk Through Fire by Kristen Ashley

In preparation for Wild Like the Wind by Kristen Ashley, I listened to Ride Steady and then promptly started Walk Through Fire after that. Both of those books made my Top Reads list of 2015. I just need to read Rough Ride and I’ll be good to go! Ride Steady Review | Walk Through Fire Review



things-to-note_thumb2

My 5 year blogiversary was on June 17th. Woo hoo! It pretty much came and went without much fanfare because life was chaotic and I didn’t plan anything but still it’s worth mentioning because I’m pretty darn proud of myself. I’m a one woman show with my reading and reviewing so I’m thinking 521 reviews over 5 years isn’t to shabby.


Thank you dear reader for your support. I appreciate every comment, every follow and like on social media, and every interaction I have with all of you. Y’all are the best!


Have a great month,

Gretchen
