This month has been pretty eventful, but relaxing. I went to a family reunion and it was pretty great. It has been years since I have seen everyone and it was nice to reunite again (I guess that is where the name reunion comes from). While we were there, we managed to get to a local amusement park, and even though I refused to go on any of the rollercoasters (I have a fear of heights and I HATE the feeling of my stomach rebelling whenever I try to go on any big rides.) I had an awesome time. I hung out at the water park most of the time and was able to work on my tan (which is a miracle itself considering my perpetual state of paleness).
I also went on a couple of day trips, so my blogging time was down this month. But, I managed to review three of the seven books I read this month, so I am going to count this month's blogging as a win.
The rest of the month I spent doing general summer things-- swimming, sad excuses of suntanning, reading, and ignoring my summer schoolwork. I can still do most of that fun summer-time stuff for another month, but I really have to get cracking on that schoolwork....
Books I Read

Goliath by Scott Westerfeld
It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han

I wrote one discussion post this month for the 2015 Book Blogger Discussion Post Challenge. You can still join in the conversation, and there are some pretty good debates going on.
I have read 42 out of 100 books for my Goodreads challenge. At the beginning of the summer, I had a foolish goal to catch up during the summer, but since this summer is already more than halfway over and I am still behind by 15 books, I do not think that is going to happen.
