Last month on I Heart Romance & YA
Happy new month, Wormies! It’s June and I just found out that June is Audiobook Month?! Anyway, YAY! I did not know that this was a thing! I’ve mostly switched to audiobooks now and I am not looking back!
So, last month, I talked about traveling for work. And yes, I have been and will be traveling for work until July (that I know of). Despite all the traveling, I managed to read 12 books, with an additional 2 DNFs – Hot and Badgered by Shelly Laurenston and Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen. I feel so accomplished with 12 books!
I’ve also been hooked on PNR – especially with dragons or dragon shapeshifters! I highly recommend Juliette Cross and G.A. Aiken (who is also Shelly Laurenston)!
We also had a few friends over for swimming and barbecue! Because I am such a homebody, it was fun having them over to catch-up! Also, we’ve known each other since Kindergarten!
I read 12 books this month, you guys! I also DNF’d an additional two. I actually went as far as chapter 4 on both and I just couldn’t continue. With Hot and Badgered, the Badger shifter sisters were too quirky they were extremely annoying. For Pretty Reckless, I guess I’m not feeling LJ Shen’s writing at the moment. I also tried reading Vicious a few months ago and I couldn’t continue reading it, as well.
I have no changes with my longest and shortest book, but this screenshot was taken after I finished reading The Unhoneymooners so it’s showing 54 instead of 53.
I just read Fated and I am hooked to the series now! Thank you to my friend Teresa (@reads_romance) at Romance Reader for recommending this series!
I also got the ARC for Fix Her Up Tessa Bailey and it’s GLORIOUS! I can’t believe I waited this long to read this book! It’s funny and classic Tessa Bailey! Also, Georgie is an awesome birthday clown!

We managed to see two movies at the theater last month – Detective Pikachu (which I hated) and the live-action remake of Aladdin. I enjoyed Aladdin but I liked the changes that they made from the 1992 animated movie.
Watching the movie made me rewatch the animated movie again and I remember how much I loved it! Lea Salonga’s singing voice for Jasmine in 1992 is sooo good! And Robin Williams was THE Genie!
I am a Disney kid and remembering these movies always make me feel nostalgic! I can still remember most of the songs and some of the dialogue! I swear Pierre wasn’t too happy that I dragged him to see Aladdin! Also, I was 5 when The Little Mermaid came out in 1989 and I can’t remember
I am in search of awesome dragon or dragon shifter books! Please recommend them to me!
Also, how has your month been? Did you enjoy the long weekend?

I love the photos. That party looks fun. Congrats on reading 12 books! When my life gets busy, I pretty much stop reading, which makes me sad. Have a great June!

I really want to read Fix Her Up! I keep seeing is around and it looks really cute! The only dragon book I can think of at the moment is Priory of the Orange Tree! I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve heard really great things about it!

Pool party and BBQ sounds so much fun! Now I want to read Fix Her Up as it sounds exactly what I love to read in this genre.
Yes! I highly recommend reading Fix Her Up! It’s so good!
