Hey booknerds! It’s crazy how fast this year is going! We’re already halfway through the year! And June went by in a flash!
Today I want to share my monthly wrap up with you all. I read 11 books including 2 rereads via audiobook. I’m starting to really enjoy audiobooks now though I only use them for rereads.
So lets get to the books I read this month:
Smoke in the Sun – I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this and I loved the story so much! It was amazing being back in this world and I’m actually sad we won’t be seeing more of Okami and Mariko. You can read my full spoiler free review here
The Night Diary – I did enjoy this book and it was great seeing an insight into what it was like when India and Pakistan split and how it affected the general population.
Between the Sea and Stars – I received an eARC of this book and I really loved this book! It’s a dark mermaid story and the first in the series. You can read my full spoiler free review here
Scythe – I have mixed feelings about this book. I did enjoy it and the plot twists were so unexpected but in between I did get a bit bored. I will continue with the series though as the ending was left on a really interesting cliffhanger
Sky in the Deep – I was so excited about this book was I was really disappointed. I didn’t enjoy the story and felt like not much happened. I know, I know, unpopular opinion!
The Raven Boys – This was a reread via audiobook and I loved it as much the second time around!
The Diminished – This book was really interesting and a unique story and I am really looking forward to reading book 2!
When Wings Expand – This book made me cry! It’s about loss of loved ones and grief and eventual hope in continuing with life. You can read my full spoiler free review here
State of Sorrow – I really enjoyed this book! There were many plot twists that I wasn’t expecting and I’m looking forward to continuing this series.
The City of Brass – Wow this book was amazing! I absolutely loved the story and the world building and the characters! Basically I can’t get enough of this book and I need the next book asap!
Cinder – This was another reread via audiobook. I loved being back in this world and there was so many little details I had forgotten and my love for this series has only increased!
As you can probably tell my favourite books this month were Smoke in the Sun and The City of Brass! If you have not read these books then you really need to change that and read them!
