#30junebooks @howjessreads #laughter My husband and I are really big fans of Kevin Smith. These books always make me laugh. The picture is of us meeting Jay and Dante from Clerks🤗 And my cat Kacy wanted to make an appearance.

#30junebooks @howjessreads #wildbooks I have so many romances where the male lead is/was a wild bachelor and he gets tamed when he meets the virginal lady of his dreams. It‘s a fun theme, even if it gets played out a lot.

Outlander | Diana Gabaldon
post image

#30junebooks @howjessreads #audiobook I LOVE audiobooks - mainly because I get motion sickness and can‘t read on the bus. So I listen to books instead. One of my all time favourites is Outlander read by Davina Porter. She‘s amazing and brings me right into the emotion of the story.

Birdsong28 That is not how I pictured her to look like!! Love her as she makes the books. I hope she does the books 9/10. She is one of the best narrators around. I think it's better listening to these books as sometimes the detail is just too much 2d
StayCurious @Birdsong28 agreed. And reading the accents can be challenging. 2d

post image

#quotsyjune19 @TK-421 #music “The Smythe-Smith musicale. Thankfully, it only came around just once per year, because Hyacinth was quite certain it would take a full twelve months for her ears to recover.” In the fabulous world of Julia Quinn‘s Regency England, one family is infamous for being less than musically inclined.

Heidi | Johanna Spyri.

#wanderingjune @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB This classic of my childhood reminded me of #mountains. And when you google images of the book it‘s all about the Alps.

TheAromaofBooks Oh, I have always loved this book. Did you ever read any of the sequels? 5d
StayCurious @TheAromaofBooks no but I‘d like to. I recently bought this copy of the book - I‘ll keep my eyes out for the others 🙂 5d
TheAromaofBooks Since the others weren't written by Spyri, I don't think they were quite as popular. I remember enjoying Heidi Grows Up, but don't really member much about it. I haven't found a copy of Heidi's Children yet. I have a few other Spyri books on the shelves that I have picked up at secondhand shops over the years, but have never actually read! 5d
BarbaraBB I loved Heidi too as a child. Perfect choice! 5d
