2. The inability to function at work/school because you were up all night binge-reading.

Sam cannot make it to the committee meeting today as she has a book hangover.

If I’m looking rough today it’s not for nothing. I was up late last night finishing the delicious new psychological thriller from July’s Sweet Reads Box and I’ve got a book hangover in the worst way.

Blogger truth: It’s a lot less fun to write a post when you’re not happy with the pictures to go with it. I mean that first one is fine but the rest aren’t where I’d like them to be. 😭😭 Hopefully the photo gods will smile on me next time. Until then, here’s the scoop on June’s Glossybox. The monthly subscription delivers five deluxe or full-size beauty products for $21 USD that add up to at least $60 in value. Continue reading Glossybox June 2020
