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

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.
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.
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.
