June 2016 Library Book Haul

 

I love the exhilarating feeling when I pick up new books in the library and load them into my tote bags!

While I have a sprinkle of business self-help books and a bio of Nikola Tesla, the majority of this collection reminds me of Gravity Falls with its paranormal and secret society themes.

Here’s my month’s reading:
