Monthly Wrap-Up | June 2019

Hello Everyone and Happy Canada Day!

Summer is finally here and so is the beautiful weather. I haven’t been outside taking advantage of the weather yet, but that will change now that Wizards Unite is out!

Add me! 🙂

During the month of June, I managed to read 7 books. It was a pretty good month in terms of star ratings. Either I LOVED it or it was meh.

As usual, here are my top two books of the month from differing genres.

 

Best Books of the Month 1

my name is trouble

 

 

 

My Name is Trouble is an incredible teen mystery novel that reads like a modern story full of teen angst and cursing with the right amount of over the top ridiculousness that makes these kinds of stories work so well.

 

 

 

 

acadme's fury

Academ’s Fury is a million times better than Furies of Calderon. If you were lukewarm on the first novel, definitely check out the sequel because it’s incredible!

everything else 1

 


The Priory of the Orange Tree is a fantastic standalone fantasy novel is a genre lacking well developed standalone novels.five stars black

 

Cruel Intentions is a bully romance. I’m not usually a fan of bully romances, so I was hoping Davis would change my mind. Unfortunately, she did not. three stars black

 

Recursion is another incredible Crouch novel that I’d recommend to anyone. With great characters and a mind-bending plot, Recursion should shoot to the top of your TBR. is another incredible Crouch novel that I’d recommend to anyone. With great characters and a mind-bending plot, Recursion should shoot to the top of your TBR. four stars black

 

 

I’m usually not a fan of Clare’s collaborative work, but Ghosts of the Shadow Market is her best anthology yet! Almost all the stories offer something to the world and expand on characters who are offstage in the main books.five stars black

 

 

Three Women is an interesting take on nonfiction that reads like fiction. Taddeo isn’t here to hold your hand and make sure you understand the purpose of telling these women’s stories. Instead, they stand on their own and what you take from them varies.three stars black

 

 

I didn’t enjoy Middlegame nearly as much as I thought I would. My issues with the novel boil down to the poor execution of an interesting idea.three stars black

 

 

Have you read any of these? What did you think? What did you read in the month of June

  1. Looks like you had a pretty good month! Happy Canada day, if that means a day off work for you, hope you have an awesome day:-)

  2. Hope you had a great Canada’s Day! I need to try a Jim Butcher book too. Gosh, you sure do read a lot of books like it’s nobody’s business hahaha Your job must be soooo cool (just for the fact that it allows you to read so much especially hahah)!

    1. I did, thank you! I hope yours was good as well 🙂
      Butcher has not let me down so far! Cursor’s Fury was FANTASTIC! I ordered the third book about half through the previous book. It was just one of those moments I realized I was in it for the long haul with this series.

      I lucked out in the job department for sure! 👌🏻
