June Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday (18)

June was a fantastic month for me! Honestly it’s been really amazing to see my blog being supported so much by all of you it blows my mind and I’m extremely grateful for each and every one of you!

It’s also pretty great that I managed to read so many books as well although I have to say my June TBR did NOT go as planned at all and I’m so sorry…..

Hopefully I’ll stay a little more on track this month with my reading!

Overall I had really mixed feelings about the books I read this month, it seemed I either really liked them or really disliked them. My favorite read would be “Lost Boy” and I really did not like “One of Us is Lying” and “Dare Me”.

    It seems like you had a pretty great blogging and reading month even if it’s such a shame you didn’t enjoy all the books you got to in June. I’ve read the first Wicked + the Divine volume but wasn’t sure about it enough to pick up the rest – would you recommend it, is it a series that grows as it progresses? 🙂

    My favourite book I read in June was When Dimple Met Rishi, I sneaked it in on the last couple of days of the month and I’m glad I did because it more than made up for the lacklustre 2-star reads that had come before it – it was so cute and squishy and I’m glad I took the time out to read something light and fun in the midst of heavier things.

    I hope July brings with it some great books for you – happy reading!

      I do recommend continuing on with TW+TD but I also really enjoyed the first one. I would say it does grow quite a bit but it still remains a little bit confusing since everything hasn’t been explained yet. There are a lot more things going on though!

      Glad to hear you enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi, I just got a copy as well! It’s definitely a hyped book but I’m happy it’s worth it! I’m not usually one for light, fluffy reads but this one I don’t think I can say no to!

      Happy reading and I hope you have a great July as well! 🙂

    OO even though your TBR didn’t go to plan you read 9 books which is awesome! I’ve heard alot of people haven’t liked One of us is lying and it could be potentially triggering? Would you say the same?
    I’m currently reading the Throne of Glass series so i’m currently reading book 2 Crown of Midnight myself. Actually really enjoying it!

      Thanks Hannah!

      I guess I hadn’t heard of anything triggering with One of Us is Lying and I didn’t notice anything while reading, what are some of the things they were saying maybe I could think of it?

      How did you like the first Throne of Glass book then? I found it to be kind of meh but I’m glad you’re enjoying the second book because I hear it’s a lot better! 🙂

        I read a review which mentioned it has a harmful representation of sexuality and mental illness. I actually was hooked on Throne on Glass straight off, I think it helped that I didn’t have a clue what to expect going straight in so I was quite shocked it was about an assassin and i’m a sucker for like this whole training competition thing. I just finished Crown of Midnight too and it definitely has more shocks to it!

        Hm, yes I could see that I suppose! There are some moments where people either tease or alienate a boy because of his sexuality even though other characters come and defend him and I believe I know which character the mental illness is discussing now and I can see how it isn’t represented very well through one of the other POVs. Thanks for enlightening me though Hannah, I appreciate it because I honestly would have probably overseen it.

        I’ll probably have to give Crown of Midnight a go then! 🙂

    I have no idea how people manage to stick to set TBRs 😂 I’ve really got to read more of The Wicked + The Divine!! Lost Boy seems really interesting too!! Looking forward to seeing what you think of Dreamfall because it sounds so good so hopefully it doesn’t disappoint!

      The only time I can stick to a TBR is if I have actual real deadlines such as with ARCs or library books otherwise I’m the worst haha!
      (I realized I’d somehow skipped a period of comments and that’s why I’m here…..a month later….commenting) 🙂
