Princess of Thorns | Stacey Jay

I‘m a big fan of #audiobook(s). Even if I own a print copy, I‘m far more likely to read a book if I have access to the audio version—like today, with Princess of Thorns, a YA fairytale-inspired story I really enjoyed. #30junebooks

Just the Way You Are | Pepper Basham
post image

There aren‘t many covers that I absolutely do not like, but this one really bothers me. To me, the guy looks so poorly Photoshopped—his head seems slightly too big, his gaze is off who-knows-where, and I‘m not sure the light hits him quite right—it makes me cringe. (The story is adorable though.) #uglycover #30junebooks

Poet422 Did you notice that she “seems” to be wearing a green jacket, not a vest but her sweater covered arms are easily visible. I think they placed the photo of the female in a “in-house” artwork photo they had in stock. You are right though, nothing matches from left to right. Creepy [shivers like from a sound in the dark]… 7d

Preparing a rundown summer camp for tourist season on a small, struggling Maine island, the Grayson family has a lot to learn about life and love. As the renovation process begins to change more than just the camp, On a Summer Tide shares a story of reconnecting and discovering purpose. It‘s charming, fun, and perfect to read this time of year.

“Sailing and soldiering around the world has taken Caleb O‘Shea far from his native Ireland, so he never imagined that a promise to see a fellow crewman safely home would practically land him on his brother‘s doorstep. After spending years away from his family, Caleb isn‘t certain what kind of reception he will receive when he steps foot in Natchez, Mississippi. The one thing he knows for sure is that he won‘t stay long.”
