June Reads 2016 *Day 8*

Another month has come and gone and I’ve managed to read two more books in that time. I am happy that I am still a book ahead on my Goodreads goal of reading 25 books in 2016. As I am writing this, I finished an ebook and am almost done with a book from my personal library. I am hoping to read at least four books in July and almost two books down is a good start to the month at only a week in. Here’s what I read in June:

L.A. Candy (L.A. Candy, #1)L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this story. I feel like it is very unique and not just a celebrity endorsement. I don’t know how true this book was to her life story or TV show, but I enjoyed it. I look forward to reading the next book. I also have the first two books of the spin off series. I will definitely be reading them soon now. All of the characters are dimensional for the most part. People are complicated and Lauren Conrad got that part right. I found it to be believable that this could happen, however unlikely as it sounds. It was witty without over doing it and I cannot wait to read the next twisted web of lies and half truths.

Confessions of a Shopaholic (Shopaholic, #1)Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I absolutely LOVED this book to DEATH. It was laugh out loud funny and highly entertaining. I could really relate to all of the cringe worthy moments. I am also drowning in debt, but I don’t spend like her. My debt are all student loans and a car payment. I would never want to be in debt over a pair of Jimmy Choos! I can pay for those by saving up. Her spending was ridiculous, which was partly why this book was so fun. That being said, I found Rebecca to be petty at best and downright childish at worst.

Now that I’ve reviewed these on Goodreads, I found out that I’m one book behind! It’s funny how in 30 minutes, I fell a book behind. Goodreads is strange. LOL. What have you been reading lately?

So, yes I went back to Kmart (I had to work obviously.) and I bought the next book in the series. I decided to use my SYWR (Shop Your Way Rewards) points as well as my discount, so I saved even more. This hardcover is a steal for 3.99 USD, when it goes for 18.99 USD at any other store.CoughBarnesNNoblesCough. This book ended up costing me only 3.34 with tax, saving me a pretty penny or two. I am really excited and happy that I bought the second book in the series, because if I love the first, I will want to read the second one. My bookshelf keeps growing and I am so proud that I have all of these lovely books to read and reread on a rainy day. I should really buy one of these books to give as a gift, but with my luck, this person will already have the book by then.

The Fame Game by Lauren Conrad

I have been wanting to read this book for awhile and when I saw it in the Kmart discount bin, I had to have it. It was originally 18.99 USD for this hardcover book and it was discounted to 3.99 USD. That really is an amazing deal on its own, but since I work there, my discount made the book 3.47 USD with tax. I am really into reading books written by celebrities at the moment, since most of them are really great books that are well written. They kind of have to be for the celebrity endorsement. Kmart also has the next book in this series on discount at least in my store. I am going to see if I have enough money to get it after paying my bills. I am pretty sure I can afford the 3.47 though. I am totally proud to have this pretty sweet book on my to-read shelf for when I have a chance to read this(pun intended).

With Love,
