Melody’s June 2017 Wrap Up

Summer TV is here and in full swing! My Summer ’17 TV watch list is here in case you missed it. I’m so pumped for Big Brother 19 (stay tuned on my thoughts so far after the first HoH, POV, and eviction). In addition, I am especially loving Dark Matter, Fear the Walking Dead, The Mist, & Playing House. What summer TV are you absolutely devouring right about now?

As for books, I’ve just gotten out of my ALA coma so stay tuned for my coverage on that experience. I had so much fun in Chicago with my writing critique group and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! In the meantime, check out my BEA recap and here’s a photo of my CP group at our CP, Axie Oh‘s ALA signing for her debut YA sci-fi novel, Rebel Seoul.

June Notes
* I’ve started watching k-dramas and I don’t know how it can get any better with the first k-drama that I decided to watch, W: Two Worlds. It is AMAZING. I highly recommend catching it on Hulu! I fangirl here.
* June was National Audiobook Month and I put the spotlight on Duplicity by N.K. Traver. If you’ve yet to listen to an audiobook this summer, make sure you check one out!
* My latest Loot Crate haul is below. The theme was Alter Ego and inside was a Spider-Man Webslinger Q-Fig Variant, Transformers G1 Optimus Prime T-Shirt, Hulk Bowl (my favorite from the haul), DC Comics Mini-Poster Book, and Power Rangers Loot Crate Pin.
