June Wrap Up

September 3, 2020
June Wrap Up 2020

I do see that the month now reads Septemeber on the calendar but let's move past that, okay? Wonderful. June (all those many months ago) was an average reading month in quantity but fantastic for quality. I read outside of my comfort zone, found a new favourite author and finally completed a series that I've been reading since 2010. Despite the fact that it's a while ago I'm still happy when I see the list of books I read that month.

Angel Fever by L A Weatherly

Angel Fever by L A Weatherly

I've finally finished the series I started in 2010...granted I had to reread the first book but it's still an accomplishment. This was an entertaining series which I feel is the best way to describe it. There was instalove, unrealistic relationships and above all, there never felt as though there was any danger. Undeveloped side characters were killed off in an attempt to create some sort of tension but the three main ones, Willow, Alex and Seb always emerged unscathed. Fun, lighthearted and of the early 2010s.

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde

I now have a new favourite author and a new favourite book. Queens of Geek was utterly adorable and I read it in virtually one day. I didn't want to put it down because I needed to see that the characters I had got so attached to had their happy endings. Charlie, Taylor and Jamie were utter delights. They were imperfect, sweet and I just want them to be my best friends.

The Salt Path by Raynor Winn

The Salt Path by Raynor Winn

A lovely neighbour of Sam and I leant me The Salt Path after a brief conversation with wine over the garden wall and I can't thank her enough. I've now purchased Raynor Winn's second novel and can't wait to start it. This was unlike anything I've read before. Part nature writing and part biography you learn about Raynor and her husband, Moth's relationship and the circumstances that lead them to become homeless, terminally ill and then walk the full costal path. A beautiful book that really makes you realise you can do anything you want, providing you have a good pair of shoes on.

Giant Days Volume Three

Giant Days Volume Three

One of my favourite graphic novel series that I really need to catch up on. I mean I think we're on volume fourteen now and I've only read three. Whoops! Giant Days follows a group on University roommates and their friends through all the different and typically uni life antics they get up to. It's feel-good and fun but still manages to convey a lot of important messages in each volume.

Lumberjanes Volume Five

Lumberjanes Volume Five

Another favourite graphic novel series that I am also not caught up on. I'm saying it now 2021 is the year I catch up on my series...or at least I'll be attempting. Lumberjanes follows a group of best friends that attend a wilderness scout summer camp and the usually magical adventures they end up on. We've had ghosts, mermaids and if I'm remembering right I'm pretty sure a yeti. So much fun and I love reading about these characters.
