June was a very good reading month for me. Mostly a Colleen Hoover filled month too. I've always heard about her books but never picked one up.Now I'm determined to read them all. I managed to knock off 7 books off the PopSugar Reading Challenge.
Now onto what I read.*A book based on a fairy tale: Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover
I finally caved in and read this book and I'm so glad I did.I couldn't put it down. This was the beginning of my Colleen Hoover obsession.Daniel and this girl who he nicknamed Cinderella have a brief encounter in the janitors closet . He meets Six the following year and feels connected to her automatically. He soon realizes Six is Cinderella which doesn't make Six happy one bit. Six then confess her trip abroad to Italy wasn't what it was as she was telling everyone. She found out she was pregnant, gave birth and then gave the baby up for adoption. Daniel and Six managed to get past that and look forward to a future together. Personally, I was hooked and what to know what happens next with them. Keep my fingers crossed she makes another book about Daniel and Six. Definitely recommend this book and this author. Believe the hype.Her books are great!* A book that's under 150 pages: For Bear or For Worse by Meredith Clarke
This book was super short and I wished it was longer. Cole is a alpha bear shifter who meets Avery who he thought was a shifter in a shifter club. Turns out she's human which is a no no with the elders. Cole doesn't want a mate as of yet but the elders are breathing down his neck. He comes to realize that Avery is his mate despite her being human and risks his life to keep her safe. To do that he must leave the territory and take whatever pack members that stands with him. The book ends on a cliff hanger.I'll definitely read the next book to see what happens next.* A book with a blue cover: Barbarian's Touch (Ice Planet Barbarians #7) by Ruby Dixon
This book is the latest book in the Ice Planet Barbarian series. Firstly, I highly recommend this series and you can read the books standalone but I recommend reading from the beginning. In this one, two sister are awoken from the pods on the alien ship. One (Lilah) is very angelic but now deaf again due to the alien's removing her hearing implant and the other (Maddie) is a burst of energy and very productive of her sister. Lilah is then kidnapped by one of the other barbarians. Rokan, another barbarian is determined to save her and bring her back to the tribe. Come to find out him and Lilah are mates and go on a lil' adventure ride before they eventually return to the tribe. Her sister isn't too happy about that and thinks she's forced to be with him.Lilah convinces her sister that she loves him. The story ends with us wondering what will happen to Maddie. Will she find a mate too and be happy in love like her sister. Will she adjust to life on the Ice Planet? We'll have to wait for the next book to see what happens to Maddie.*A satirical book: Almost in Love by Kylie Gilmore
I'll tell you the god honest truth. If I wasn't doing this book challenge I would of stop reading this book and deleted it from my kindle one time. It's about a nerd who falls in love with his neighbor and he first tries being her friend and liking everything she does.Then asks her on two dates which end up in disaster. So his brother convinces him to be apart of a play and he gets the starring role as the pirate who is very aggressive. He manages to win her over with his aggressiveness that he's channelling from the role. He almost losing her by taking complete control about their relationship from her. But manages to fix his act in the end. Do I recommend this book. Nope. Pass.
*A book that is published in 2016
: Never, Never Part Three by Colleen Hoover
Now let me tell you about this series. I read Finding Cinderella which made me want to read the others. Once I read Never,Never Part 1 I had to read the rest. You won't believe the end in Part 3. I won't spoil it for you but I was thinking one thing which was true and another which was true. But Colleen Hoover took it to another level. Wow! Couldn't stop. I listened to this one and couldn't stop until I heard the end. I recommend this book and definitely this series. A must read.* A book that's guaranteed to bring you joy: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
I told you I was on a Collen Hoover kick. If you loved Finding Cinderella then you'll love this one. This one follows Sky and Dean. I won't ruin the book but I couldn't stop once I started. I totally wasn't expecting certain events. I was thinking one thing and that idea morphed into something else. A total page turner. If you need a book to read during a long flight. Read this. You won't want to put it down. Loved it.
*A book set in your home state: In Two Weeks by Jen Talty
Imagine you have two weeks time to figure out a way to make the man you've loved forever love you. But you convince yourself it's only sex. Now throw in a stalker who just won't go away.Jared has two weeks to find the stalker and Ryan has two weeks to convince herself that she's not in love with him. You'll never believe who the stalker is. The question is will Jared still take the job? Has he fallen in love with Ryan too? Hmm, you'll have to read to find out. I highly recommend this book. I couldn't put it down especially with a crazy stalker on the lose. And there was too many suspects to count.
I don't know if I can match June in July but here's my reading list for this month.
*A book you haven't read since high school: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
* A book translated to English: The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz
*A self-improvement book: Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success by Steve Harvey
*A classic from the 20th century: Dracula by Bram Stoker
*A book with a protagonist who has your occupation: By Design by Jayne Denker
* A book that takes place on a island: Appalcosa Summer by Tudor Robins
*A book that's becoming a movie this year: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

It has come to our attention that there is ongoing labor disputes with Canada Post. Canada Post may halt acceptance of new shipments and delivery and parcels on July 2nd. Due to this we have removed shipping to Canada from our Etsy Shop
until regular shipping resume. If you have any questions regarding shipments, feel free to contact us at any time.
Sales & DealsPosted by Gaetana Friday, June 24 2016 06:05AMWe've been celebrating all month long with giveaways in celebration of our 9th birthday of Satin Doll & Co. Even though our official birthday isn't until tomorrow the 25th. We're starting our sale one day early so it will be a 3-day event. So let the party begin.

But on a serious note, we wish we could personally thank each and every one of our customers and loyal Satin Doll supporters. 9 years go by so fast and next year will be 10. From the beginning before SDC, when I was selling my jewelry at my father's vendor location I knew this is what I'm supposed to be doing. Making and selling my own products. Owning my own company. We've met and spoke to so many of you over the years. Some have even become friends and we treasure each and every one of you because if you didn't support SDC and the products then there would be no SDC. So we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. To 9 more years.....

It has come to our attention that someone has contacted us multiple
times claiming that they didn't receive their giveaway prize from 6
months ago. Which was our Christmas giveaway where we gave away 4
products worth $53. This individual has been harassing us on all social
media networks wanting us to send them more products. We stated to this
individual that we have shipped their prizes 6 months ago and no items
were shipped back to us. Due to the time frame and being a international shipment that we can not verify if it was delivered or not. But they persist on.
In the 9 years we have been in business we happy to say we've never lost
a package and take pride in making all our customers are happy. We do
these monthly giveaways on our blog to give our customer base a chance
to own one of products without having to purchase from us. We happy do
these giveaways and are happy when someone wins. But for someone to
harass and tarnish our name is unspeakable to scam us to send them more
products. No we won't put up with that.
So unfortunately, we'll be halting our monthly blog giveaways until
further notice. We're sorry one rotten apple has spoiled it for
everyone. Especially our loyal subscribers who always enter to win. All
currently giveaway for our birthday have been shipped except one. We'll
be contacting that winner again for their shipping info.

We say today and one Friday every month,
FREEBIE FRIDAY! Once a month you can expect one freebie that you can
either download or DIY yourself at home. Due to popular demand this
month's freebie is our famous traveler's journal insert we made and use
weekly. You've probably seen them on our Instagram
account. Now you can
print, staple and use. Easy as 1-2-3.
Time and time again, I came across this style of insert but only for ring bound planners. It was so frustrating to find a layout you love but can get it for your planner. So my frustration made me do what I always do. Figure it out and make it myself.
As you can see it says "This Week" in a nice script font with a space to put the month and year. It's a 2 page layout with Monday thru Thursday on the left hand side and Friday thru Sunday on the right. With a section on the bottom for goals. You have enough space to decorate, write or stamp. I created it to fit a wide traveler's journal but you can cut it down or even scale it down by 75 or 50% when print for other sizes. Simply leave a comment below if you have any issues and I'll gladly help you in any way I can.
Here's some examples on how I decorated this layout.
You can get pretty creative.
