My recap is late! Things have been BUSY this summer so I’m ridiculously behind on the blogging front. *waves* I’m still here! I hope everyone is having a good start to the summer! Anyone going on any trips or vacations? Fun plans? Tell me about them!
As for me… here are some of my favorite things that happened in June!
Favorite Things in June:
I was so excited to moderate for the Bloomsbury Boldly Bookish Tour! It was a lot of fun and while I was SUPER nervous beforehand, Tara Altebrando, Tiffany Schmidt and Jennifer Lynn Barnes were so so nice! I had a fantastic time doing some Q&A with them.
These lovely authors were so sweet!
I was also SO HAPPY that Tonya was in town and that I got to hang out with her!! I hadn’t seen her in a year and I have missed her so much! We visited the Amazon bookstore, browsed other shops and was generally touristy around downtown Seattle and Pike Place Market! It was a gorgeous day and the water looked beautiful! I wish she lived by me all the time!
