Books Wrap Ups

June Wrap Up

July 3, 2019
June 2019 Wrap Up

Another amazing reading month! I read even more than May, admittedly there was one book that I really didn't enjoy but the rest were virtually five star reads across the board. I've got a few new favourite books and some new favourite authors now!

Song of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury

Song of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury

I'm so sad one of my favourite series has now come to a close. Melinda Salisbury is one of my auto-buy authors. The worlds she crafts, the characters all of it is simply perfect. Sorrow is perhaps my favourite character of hers thus far. I can't wait to see what she writes next.

Rating: 5/5

The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

I've been meaning to read Roshani's books for the longest time. I've had The Star-Touched Queen on my TBR for a while. I adored this book, it was just plain magical. The writing was something else. I've always seen people describe her writing this way but to read it for myself was unreal. It was a myth come to life.

Pax by Sara Pennypacker

Pax* by Sara Pennypacker

Pax ripped my heart out and then gave it back to me. It was such a super sweet read. I loved the little illustrations peppered throughout too. It's amazing how much impact a children's book can have on you. I'm a weepy person as it is but I was such a mess reading this. I messaged Sam in an absolute state trying to express how much I loved this book.

Peach by Emma Glass

Peach by Emma Glass

Frankly, I really didn't like this book. My review has a lot more of my indepth thoughts.

Norroway Volume One

Norroway Volume One

What a wonderfully weird little graphic novel. I'm definitely going to carry on with this series. The first volume was fun to read with super interesting characters and what felt like a promising start to the overall plot. I just wish there had been a little more explanation surrounding certain things like the curse.

Rating: 4/5

My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell

My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell

My Dark Vanessa changed me in a way I didn't expect. I both adored and abhorred this novel in equal measure as a result of the subject matter. It perfectly illustrates what can happen when a position of power is abused. It was unreal. Definitely a new favourite of mine, and a new auto-buy author too.

The Man with the Twisted Lip by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Man with the Twisted Lip by Arthur Conan Doyle

I've never read any Arthur Conan Doyle before but I certainly will be doing now! I loved the Man with the Twisted Lip. For such a short story it contained such a well developed and satisfying story arc. Even in this, you get a feeling of the relationship between Holmes and Watson and how it really is kind of like a man trying to look after a naughty child.

Once & Future* by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy

Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy

This book has everything you could everrrr want. It's absolutely incredible. From brilliant LGBTQIAP+ rep to dragons. Yep, that's right. DRAGONS. But not just dragons...SPACE dragons. Aside from that, the actual story is simply mesmerizing and you find yourself falling for every character. Even the ones you maybe shouldn't.
