I want to try something a little different for the end of the month, I want to share what we read, because sometimes it’s hard to figure out what you want to read next. I like to see what others have read to see if maybe I’ll like it too, that’s how I have found some amazing books.

This is not every books we read in the month of June, though it probably is for me sadly. My kids read way too many books for me to keep track of.
