how are you?
I hope are all well!
Today I am going to be doing my June wrap up! This is my biggest wrap up I think I have ever had. I read a total of 30 books this month! I’m not going to lie and say that I am not impressed with myself this month😂.
I was going to count how many books I have per star rating but I’m not even going to attempt it lol. So let’s just get into the books I read in June:
5 star reads;
Promises forged (venators book 2) by Devri Walls
I am in loveeee with this series! I loved book 2 even more than I loved book 1! I can’t wait to move onto book 3! Beltrannnnnnnn…. that’s all I have to say!!! If you want to know more of my thoughts check out my review .
A witch in love by Ruth Warburton
I also read ‘A witch alone’ by Ruth Warburton. I gave book 1 and 2 five stars. This series is so nostalgic for me. I have reread this series more times than Harry Potter. It was the first trilogy I ever read and it holds a special place in my heart.
When wishes bleed by Casey L. Bond
I saw this book on kindle unlimited and the cover really intrigued me. Then I read the synopsis and realised that it was for fans of ‘the selection’ and ‘the hunger games’ and I was sold. I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed! If you love the hunger games and the selection or one of these two then I recommend picking up ‘when wishes bleed’.
The fifth curse by Cindy Stark
Most of these I gave 5 stars so I’m putting them here lol. This is the fifth book in the ‘teas and temptations’ series. I then read book 6,7,8 and 9 which are ‘It’s all sixes‘, ‘Spellbound seven‘, ‘Elemental eight‘ and ‘Nefarious nine’. I gave 1,2,3 and 7 4.5 stars and 4,5,6,8 and 9 5 stars! I don’t want to read book 10 yet because I think it is the last book in the series and I don’t want this series to end😢.
Crossing in time by D. L. Orton
I love taking part in TheWriteReads blog tours because it allows me to find amazing reads that I probably wouldn’t of heard of. I’ve read many time travel books but this is one of my favourites. I’m definitely going to continue with the series sometime. Check out my review .
The book thief by Markus Zusak
I had such a great time buddy reading this book with Asha. When I read this many years ago I didn’t appreciate as much as I do now. I forgot so much of the details and the characters I disliked them I really like now. I’m so glad I reread this book!
4.5 star reads;
The girl of fire and thorns by Rae Carson
Rae Carson has become a favourite author of mine. I’m so glad I read this book, it’s such a great book with amazing character development and world building. I have ‘walk the earth a stranger’ (her other series) on my shelf and am so eager to get to it! But I also want to read the next book in this series ‘the crown of embers’.
Alice in murderland by Samantha Silver
I also read the rest of the series which includes ‘Murder on the Oregan express’, The very killer caterpillar’, ‘Death Quixote’, ‘Pride and premeditation‘ and ‘Wurthering Homocide’. I gave all of them 4 stars besides book 6 (withering homocides) which I gave 4.5. I really enjoyed this series, it was so fun and entertaining.
4 star reads;
His scandalous lessons by Karina Kendrick
Katrina Kendrick was an author I had heard great things about but I hadn’t read any of her books. I was scrolling through kindle unlimited and saw this there and read it straight away. This was such a great read. It’s perfect if you are looking for a light romance read!
Everything to lose by Gordon Bickerstaff
This is another example of a book a I would never of heard of without a blog tour. I liked this book a lot. It has action and humour, science and mystery. I loved learning about the scientific aspect and couldn’t put this book down. For my full thoughts check out my review .
American royals by Katherine McGee
I was worried I wasn’t going to like this book because I had such high expectations with all the hype it was getting but I wasn’t disappointed. I can’t wait to get to book 2 which comes out really soon, which I’m so glad about because I can’t wait any longer, I need to know what happens!!!!
Orphans of the tide by Struan Murray
This was a fun Middle Grade Book. I wouldn’t read it again but I enjoyed myself whilst reading it. I will be picking up book 2 eventually though as I want to see what happens next.
The iron king by Julie Kagawa
I felt like I missed the hype with this one until Noly read it and told me it was really good! I trust her recommendation so I decided to give it a go and I wasn’t disappointed. Whilst some of it was very predictable YA stuff I still really enjoyed it.
An outlawed heiress and her duke by Denise Daye
This book is a historical romance book with a classic ‘girl dresses as boy‘ trope! Whilst this may not be everyone’s kind of trope I love it! I really liked the main characters. I read this book so fast, I couldn’t put it down. I want to find another book like this!
Better witch next time by Stephanie Damon
I was looking for a witchy murder mystery on kindle unlimited but came across this series. It’s a time travel witchy murder mystery with a hint of romance! It’s everything I love in a novel tied together! Each book in the series follows different characters but as far as I know they do connect together. I’m going to be reading the next in the series in July because I can’t wait.
3.5 star reads;
Broom mates by Morgana Best
I gave this book 3.5 stars. I also read book 2 ‘Broom with a view’ by Morgana Best which I gave 4 stars. I enjoyed this series when I read it but I don’t know whether I’m going to read more of the series.
Is the broom fits by Sarah Bourgeois
Another good witchy mystery book. I really like Sarah Bourgeois‘ writing style. This series is so long I’m a little intimidated but they are fast and short so it shouldn’t be a problem. Hopefully I will get to them soon!
Black magic kitten by Sarah Bourgeois
I was a little disappointed with this one. I liked it but there was something about it that annoyed me and I don’t know what it was😂. I don’t think I will be continuing on eight the series but it was an ok read.
Wilder girls by Rory Powers
I DNF’d this book at about 125 pages. I don’t know whether it was that I was reading about a pandemic during a pandemic that I didn’t like about this book or whether it was the writing style but I just didn’t click with it at the time. I might read it again some day but for now it’s just not for me.
Phew 😅 that took a while. I’m really excited about July. There are so many great readathons Im looking forward to taking part in! What are you all reading in July? How did your June reading month go? Let me know in the comments down below and let’s chat!
Thank you so much for reading!
