June Highlights

Hi everyone! I can’t believe how fast June went by and that we are already three days into July! 
This has been another busy, but fun month for me.

--The beginning of this month my mom and I sold some books at a used curriculum sale. I sold about half of my books, which was pretty exciting. I also found a couple books too. ;)

--In the middle of June two of my brothers, two friends, and I went to a carnival that our town puts on each year. We had a lot of fun riding all of the rides. :) We rode the rides from 1:00 in the afternoon until 10:00 in the evening. We did take about an hour break to come home and eat dinner, but then we went right back. When we did go back it was actually raining so all of the carnival rides were wet, but we still kept on riding. By the time we got home we were all cold, but it was a super fun day! :)

--My brothers and I have been swimming in our pool quite a bit lately.

--Last week I went whitewater rafting with two of my friends. I was super nervous, but after I survived the rapids it was really fun! :)

--Last week my cousin came to visit for the weekended. We all had a fun time visiting and catching up with her. :)

This past month I read 9 books. They were:
June Bug Chris Fabry 
The Bridge to Cutter Gap Catherine Marshall
Silent Superstitions Catherine Marshall
The Angry Intruder Catherine Marshall
Sierra Jensen volume 1 by Robin Jones Gunn 
Midnight Rescue Catherine Marshall
The Proposal Catherine Marshall
The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser by Hosanna Emily
Christy’s Choice Catherine Marshall

All of the books were really good. Well, except for June Bug. It was actually pretty good and I was enjoying it and it definitely kept my interest, but it did not end the way I wanted it to. Everything was going great until about the last chapter and some things happened that made me not like it so much anymore. There has been a couple of books before that I have almost cried through, but I actually did cry at the end of June Bug
But the rest of the books I read in June were great! :)

How was your June? Have you read any of these books? 

I’m looking forward to more fun summer days in July! :)


  1. Oh, thank you for mentioning my book! =D I'm glad you enjoyed it. =)

    It sounds like you had a very fun month! So you enjoyed the white water rafting? My brothers did it as well and loved it...but I'm not so sure that I would want to... =|

    And decluttering is so fun, isn't it?! I love the feeling of having LESS! =)

  2. Sounds like a great month, Rebekah!! :D Oh, that carnival and rafting sounds like such a blast. ^.^

    I have read...none of these books! O.o I want to read The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser though. I feel like I saw June Bug somewhere...I'll have to check up on that. Also, I saw a book by Chris Fabry the other day but, ack, I can't remember the title now. >_<

    By the way, I tagged you for the By the Book tag! :D Details here if you're interested,

    1. Yes, the carnival and rafting were super fun!!

      “The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser” was really good. I'm sure you'll like it. :) Yeah, “June Bug” was good up till the end. ;)

  3. Sounds like you had an awesome June, Rebekah! Haha, love how you said you found the rafting fun after you "survived the rapids" ;)

    My June was a ton of fun! But sad to say , I haven't read a single one of the books you listed! Going to go look for them in the library sometime ;)

    1. I did. :) I was pretty nervous going rafting, but yeah, after I survived it was quite fun. ;)
