I am leaving for vacation tomorrow and I plan on bring a few books with me and thought I would share what books I will be taking with me. This is a bit repetitive since I did mention these books in my monthly TBR but I wanted to do it anyways.
I am going to be on summer vacation for 11 days and am going to Vancouver and Calgary. I am so excited! 😀 I have been to both these cities many times before but I just love it there so much. I don’t know how much reading I will get done but I am bringing five books with me.
This is the latest book by Kubica and I recently finished reading all her previous books and think she is a very talented writer. So, I am very much looking forward to getting to this one while on vacation.

I am so excited to share with you the very first PageHabit Historical Fiction box. This subscription box was created when Bookly Box and Quarterly CO. Literary merged and so you get elements of both those subscription boxes in one. I thought this was a great idea and knew I had to subscribe to this book box.
Pagehabit still has the Quarterly boxes, Young Adult and Literary, that is curated by the featured author but now they have a monthly box as well. The monthly boxes come in seven different genres Literary, Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Mystery, Horror and Historical Fiction. It was tough choice but I went with Historical Fiction because it is my favourite genre.
The book featured in June’s PageHabit box was The Underground River by Martha Conway. I was so happy when I found out that this was going to be June’s book because I read a great review over on Annie’s blog called The Misstery. Which I will leave a link for you to go and read her review of The Floating Theatre. The Title is difference but it is the same book.
The Underground River is set in 1838 and the Ohio River is used as a backdrop for this historical fiction. May Bedloe find employment on a theatre flatboat while working there she helps ferry unwanted babies of slaves to freedom. Sounds so good and can’t wait to read.
Other things that were included in this months box was a letter from the author, bookmark, page flags. bookish pin and pouch. I have since made use of these bookish goodies and love them. In my opinion you can never have too many bookmarks or page flags. 🙂
Another great thing about PageHabit is each month they will make a literary donation to a country in need. And this month’s donations will go to Zambia.
I recommend the PageHabit subscription box if your looking for a monthly book box. I do believe it is worth the price and shipping costs. Did anyone else get a PageHabit box and if so what genre did you get?
To get your own PageHabit Box head over to their website and check it out. 😀 Pagehabit.com
I ended picking up a few used books and e-books this month, nothing too crazy. Well, okay, maybe I went a little crazy and downloaded several free e-books. I am not going to go into much detail with the e-books because they pretty much are all new adult. I will leave links to goodreads so you can read more about them.
Lets start off with the list of e-books I downloaded this month.
The Money Game by Adam Smith
Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica
I did download this for $2 and have since read it and thought it was good but I did like The Good Girl better. Don’t You Cry is about a girl, Esther, that goes missing and her roommate Quinn is left to find answers. It also follows the perspective of a teenager, Alex, who befriends a mysterious girl that shows up at the coffee shop he works at.
They were having a used book sale at a local mall and so, of course I had to stop by and check it out. I did find four books I liked not as many as I was hoping for but there wasn’t much of a good selection. These four books are in pretty good condition and came to a whopping $6 dollars.

A Court of Thorns and Roses is a young adult fantasy that is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Feyre, starving and desperate for food goes out hunting near the “Wall” that separates the fey world from the human world. During, this hunt she kills a wolf, which unbeknownst to Feyre happens to be a Faerie. This angers Tamlin, a High Fae Lord, and he appears in his beastly form at Feyre’s house for retribution. He spares Feyre’s life and instead takes her back to the Fae World to live with him in the Spring Court.
At first she is distant and cold towards Tamlin but then sees he is not the beast she thought he was. There has been a curse that has been set upon the Spring Court and it is up to Feyre to break the curse. Continue reading “A Court of Thorns and Roses Book Review (Spoiler Free)”
