32. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - I liked this book. Overall I'm not a big fan of road trips but this one was very well written. Had little notes and photos in it which made me smile every time I saw them. The only thing that I find a bit weird is the development of the relationship between the main characters.

Haven't read anything in June because of my finals but I'll try to read a bit more next months.
