Monthly Bookish Awesomeness: June 2017

In which I recap what went down in the last four weeks here and outside the blog.

Y’all, Bookworms Unite! is returning for its third year in July 16th! Woohoo! One of our lovely hosts, Inah @ The Bibliophile Confessions, shared the deets, with a handy Beginner’s Guide infographic for those of you who are going for the first time. (Because, clearly, I have to say the most virginy thing.)

June had been both slow and fleeting. I turned one month in my new job—working with adorable, brilliant kids is so rewarding! I feel more settled in the blog.  I’ve reconnected with the publishing, no longer unaware of new releases and forthcoming titles. I saw Wonder Woman. And I spent a ridiculous amount of time on Froy’s Instagram one lazy morning.

  1. Looks like it was a pretty great month for you, Shelumiel! Congratulations on your first month-versary at your new job.

    I also really love that gorgeous graphic with all the covers making a rainbow. So fitting.

    And thank you for mentioning Wonder Woman; your praise reminds me that I still need to go see that soon. (Hopefully, it’s still playing in theater.)

    Once again, welcome back! We’ve missed you and your posts in the blogosphere. Have a nice July! 🙂


    1. Summer! You can call me Miel! 🙂 But not Lumi (don’t @ me Joey). And, yeah. Thank you! I’m really having tons of fun in my new job while at the same time learning a lot about kids. It’s been humbling and joyful so far. 🙂 I hope you can get around to seeing Wonder Woman soon, though, because a it’s SO GOOD and b it’s SO GOOD. Did I mention Wonder Woman is SO GOOD?

      You have a sunny, lovely July, Summer!
