Another month has passed and we’re now half way through the year. It has flown so quickly. I just hope that the rest of the year isn’t as crazy as 2020 has been so far.
June has been a fantastic reading month for me. I read fourteen books, including my first ever audio book. It was almost fifteen books read but I didn’t quite finish Nine Elms. It was a big month for reading with others for me. I took part in a buddy read with my lovely friend Beth and three readalongs with the Tandem Collective, two of which are still going on.
So here is what I read this month:
- A Theatre For Dreamers ✮✮✮✮✰
- The Split ✮✮✮✮. 5
- The Lies I Tell ✮✮✮. 5
- The Phone Box at the Edge of the World ✮✮✮✮. 5
- I Know Your Secret ✮✮✮✮✰
- A Court of Thorns and Roses ✮✮✮✮✮
- Unbroken ✮✮✮✮✰
- The Colours ✮✮✮✮✰
- The Waiting Rooms ✮✮✮✮✮
- The Miseducation of Evie Epworth ✮✮✮✮✰
- Monstrous Souls ✮✮✮✮✰
- The July Girls ✮✮✮✮✰
- The Silent Wife ✮✮✮✮✮
- Sadie ✮✮✮✮✰ (Audiobook)
You can read the reviews for all of the books except for Sadie by clicking on the title. My review for Sadie will be posted in the coming week.
My BOTM was a close call again but I have to give it to A Court of Thorns and Roses. I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did and it’s opened up a whole new genre for me. That’s one of the things I love about Bookstagram though, it brings books to your attention you’d never have considered reading otherwise and it’s helped me discover a wealth of books and authors I doubt I’d have ever read without it. The other books that deserve a special mention this month are The Phone Box at the Edge of the World, The Waiting Rooms, and The Miseducation of Evie Epworth. These three outstanding novels were all contenders for my book of the month and are candidates for being in my favourite books of the year so far.
In July I have a busy month full of blog tours that I’m so excited about . I’m also looking forward to seeing what books the rest of the year brings and will be posting some of the ones I’m looking forward to most in the next few weeks.
Thank you to all the tagged publishers for the gifted copies of the books.
