Summer Blog Promo Tour #1 and June Recap

As a teacher, it is always coconuts to me how fast June goes by. We always say July is the only month that is truly ours; we go until mid June before summer starts, and most of August is filled with curriculum work, professional development, getting ready for the first football games (maybe that’s just me), and crying into your pillow (jk, I love my job). Anyway, it’s already July, which means I have to soak up every morning at home with my coffee and kid, every evening walk outside without snow, and every afternoon spent with my nose in a book on the deck while my 2.5 year old (hopefully) naps!

In terms of blogging in June, most of my time was spent moving everything over from my limited Wix blog to a new WordPress. I did review a few books (Love and Luck, Listen to Your Heart, and Always Never Yours). Thus, I am basically starting from scratch all over again. My hope is to spend some quality time blogging this summer, connecting with other bloggers, and growing my following.

One of the ways that I will be doing that is participating in the Summer Blog Promo Tour hosted by The Book Bratz! The tour will be going on all summer, mostly on Sunday nights, and is a great way to learn more about awesome books, connect with other book bloggers and to collaborate about all things books, blogging and reading.


I’m super excited to be connecting with Becky over at Coffee, Cocktails and Books. I wonder if our blog names helped us to get paired together, hm… 😉

It is clear that Becky knows more about this blogging thing than I do, and I am hopeful to learn more from her! All through the summer we will be collaborating on posts with tags, memes, reviews, book-swaps and  more! Check out her bio below, check out her post about the #SBPT, follow her blog and Instagram and stay tuned for what we have in store!

Hi (Amanda’s) friends!

My name is Becky! I’m a fellow book blogger from NYC that drinks ways too much Starbucks, wears a lot of red lipstick, and can usually be found with my nose in a book. I’ve been a bookworm for most of my life and officially started my blog in April of last year! I’m a proud Ravenclaw, lover of demigods, and low-key obsessed with Aiden from the Illuminae Files.  

After taking a brief reading hiatus, I’ve been delving back into the world of YA fantasy, contemporary, and sci-fi. I’ve also been branching out into other genres such as thriller/mystery and literary fiction. Basically, I read a bit of everything! Some of my favorites of this year include Nemesis and Genesis by Brandon Reich’s, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and Legendary by Stephanie Garber.

I can also be found on BookTube and Instagram, showcasing some pretty covers, raving about new favorites, atoning for my book hoarding, and connecting with all my bookish friends! I also have a thing for unboxings and like to do those too!

When I’m not doing all things bookish, I can be found playing with my Shih Tzu puppy Alastor, watching make-up tutorials I’ll never be able to recreate, or enjoying post-graduate life (aka frantically trying to find a job).

I look forward to getting to connect with you all in the coming weeks!
