June was a month of fun. Besides my birth month and the birth of this blog [it's turned one for the umpteenth time,] I actually had a really good time. Things got pretty stressful towards exams but that's natural, right? I'm glad to be out.
Hold it! No I'm not. Currently, I'm doing summer school so I can get ahead. It's awful. My teacher is horrible and to her, one little mistake will get me an 80% in her course. I want this to be over so bad but I have another three weeks to go. Also, things are due the day they're assigned so I have about 12 hours to do a major project every single day. #Pray4Me
In other news, I'm getting less books. This is good. I've been so behind on everything, I don't think I could deal with another crapload of ARCs. I'm also really happy because quality vs. quantity and all that. The ones I got, in my opinion, are of the highest quality. Not that I'm biased or anything.
I got to take two shots with my sister for Canada Day and I wanted to practice my photography. We played with sparklers because neither of us wanted to hear lame fireworks. I didn't expect these shots to match but they do and I think they look cute! I'm the one on the left - I know, it's hard to tell.
Nova's fun thing of the month: I take pictures of plants with books and sometimes people are like, "oh, that's so pretty!" I appreciate all those comments but really, I can't take full credit. I am not kidding when I say that sometimes, I'll sneak into someone's FRONT garden and use their plants as props for a shoot. It gets really weird when it isn't in my neighborhood. One guy in a different neighborhood had a rock garden and I really wanted to use it but he looked angry and he was out watering his grass so it was like nooooope.
ReviewRaincoast Books [Macmillan] are seriously my favorites. I received a copy of Tonight the Streets Are Ours, My Secret to Tell and Romancing the Dark in the City of Light. I haven't read any but both Leila Sales and Nat. D. Richards are authors I've had great success with! Ann Jacobus is a new author to me but I'm expecting great things!
I also received an eCopy of Signs Point to Yes!
Lastly, I got a copy of The Scorpion Rules from Simon and Schuster. Very excited for that one!
Yes! That's it for the entire month. I'm so happy because while it isn't crazy large, they're great titles! I hope you're as excited as me for the release of these!
