Monthly Rewind ~ June 2016

Posted June 30, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Monthly Rewind, Top Ten Tuesday / 37 Comments

Monthly Rewind is exactly what it sounds like. A post to summarize the past month: Books read, my quick takes on them, top posts of the month, what I have been watching and what’s coming up. I will be linking up to Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s Monthly Wrap Up Round Up.

Break from Books


  • In TV watching I binged Orange is the New Black and accidently binges Master of None. I highly suggest both. Plus I am loving UnReal this season.
  • I participated in Mudderrella for the second year in a row. It was a beautiful day and we had a blast.
  • We got to the beach a couple times this month which was fantastic. I can’t wait for more beach days.
  • My daughter finished her second year of preschool and her first dance recital.
  • My household was a cesspool of germs for a good portion of the month. So happy we are all healthy.

What’s Ahead

SO in July we have some parties, barbecues and one thing I am super excited about – Garth Brooks concert!! I am not really a country fan but I have always loved him and cannot wait to see him live. Other than that I plan to go to the beach a lot, the kids start camp and hopefully get a lot of reading in.

How was your June? What was your favorite book from the month?

    • I hadn’t read her books before but I loved this one. Oh wow that is a great first concert. Mine was New Kids on the Block 🙂 For the Garth Brooks show I was up and waiting for when they went on sale and was lucky to get tickets. Yes Yankee Stadium is such a pain though. Thanks!!

  1. I am SO jealous you are seeing Garth Brooks! I LOVE HIM. I like the 90’s country best, but I listen to some of it these days. At any rate, Garth has always been a favorite and I really want to see him live. He needs to come to me!!! haha

    Congrats to your daughter on pre-school ending and her recital! How fun! That’s great you all are feeling better finally. Being sick is awful, but especially in the summer months!

  2. So happy to hear that you had a really great month, Grace! I’ve always wanted to read With Malice, so I envy you at this point. Haha. 🙂 I haven’t heard of Garth Brooks, and I feel ashamed now! I’ll be looking up for his music in Spotify then! Hope you have a great July, and have fun!

  3. Oh, dance recitals are so fun! I have danced my whole life and I love it with all of my heart. My parents always found them a bit boring, but they always loved seeing me on stage. And Garth Brooks sounds like it will be fun. I am not one for country but I love live music. ❤

    • Master of None totally wasn’t what I thought it would be but I enjoyed it a lot. All the Missing Girls was awesome. It was I keep recommending to IRL people!! Ugh I didn’t love Luck,Love & Lemon Pie. I wanted to but it didn’t really work for me. I hope you like it more!!

  4. I feel you with the June sicknesses, we had them here one by one at my household and it was not pretty nor fun! Great wrap up as usual and some great books for the month too! I’ve heards heaps of good things about One True Loves so it’s been on my radar for a while now and hopefully I’ll read it soon!
