June Wrap Up 2021

June was an absolutely rubbish month for me, I felt like I’ve hardly had any time to read and blog, or just do anything in general. Overall I’ve just been feeling really low with no motivation at all. I’m already feeling a lot better this month reading wise and I have a week off work in 2 weeks so I can really get a lot of reading done!

Seen as I’ve not read much this month, let me know in the comments some of your favourite June reads! Now onto the wrap up.

June Books

The Lock In by Phoebe Luckhurst

I’m so happy I managed to get a place on the blog tour for The Lock In after seeing so much about the book the past few months. It was a really unique and fun book, perfect if you are looking for a funny and easy read with a hint of romance! You can read my review here.

The Mostly Invisible Boy by Casey Grimes

The Mostly Invisible Boy is such an amazing middle-grade fantasy, perfect for all ages! I really connected with the characters and I loved how imaginative and easy it was to visualise the fantasy world the author has created. If you like magic, action and adventure, you need to read this book! Read my full review here on The Write Reads blog tour.

Mirrorland by Carole Johnstone

It’s been a while since I have read a mystery or thriller but I’m so glad I signed up for the blog tour for this. Mirrorland takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions and I even found it hard to decipher what was real and what was the fantasy world much like the characters. It’s so unique, fast-paced and an overall enjoyable book. So if you love a bit of mystery and memorable characters definitely give this one a go! Read my full review here on The Write Reads blog tour.

Instructions for Dancing Nicola Yoon

It was no surprise when I started reading this that I would love it. I actually read this back in May but my review went live on the 23rd of June! I can’t shout about this book enough but be warned you will definitely need a box of tissues next to you. Read my full review here!

Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski

The book club that isn’t a book club has started a new series book club and Six Stories was the first one chosen. It’s very different from what I usually read and apart from me being very far behind the group and missing basically all if the chats I still really enjoyed it.

Buddy Read: Witcehs Steeped in Gold

I am so far behind with this buddy read. Someone just shout at me to sit down and read it right now. I got through quite a bit today while at the hairdressers and I’m started to get into it now. I’m still behind though… Can we all just appreciate how beautiful this fairy loot edition is though!

Blog Tour: No Number Nine by FJ Campbell

A few days ago I was thinking about what I wanted to read this month as I didnt have a lot of blog tours. That has drastically changed in the past couple of days because I just can’t say no! LiterallyPR has very kindly sent me a review copy of No Number Nine and I’ve also got a spot on the blog tour. It sounds like it could be quite heavy with dealing with loss but I’ve also seem some review that say it has it’s funny bits to it as well.

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

I never actually got around to reading this book last month so I am going to try really hard to read it this month. I’m off out on sunday to buy the final book in the series so I really think that will encourage me to pick this up. I just don’t want it to end though!

Blog Tour: Kings and Daemons by Marcus Lee

Another one of the many blog tours I have signed up for this month and next month. We all know or you should know by now how much I love fantasy books, especially dark fantasy! I still haven’t got bored of this genre eventhough this is really all I’ve read this year. So I’m so excited to read this and be part of the blog tour!

The Harm Tree by Rose Edwards

I was kindly sent a copy from Uclan Publishing in exchange for an honest review. This book sounds like the perfect fantasy for me as it has plenty of action, great characters, and dark magic! I’m really looking forward to reading this book and I just have to mention the cover because I love it!

Hydra by Matt Wesoloski

I’m very very excited for the second book in the six stories series. This one seems a bit darker than the first one which I absolutely love, making me even more intrigued to see what happens.

I’m so sorry to hear that your June wasn’t great, but hopefully this month is treating you a lot better. Great that you’ve started the Six Stories series – it’s amazing and you’ll love it!
