June Standouts: Book Review Time

June was a kick ass month for books. I only read 10, but 5 of them warranted 5 star ratings. :O And only 2 got less than 4. Seriously, color me floored. Really, though, it only makes sense, since June is the best month ever. It gave the earth me, right? 😉 Are you guys ready for […]
