Best: The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney
Runner up: The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
Worst: The Leavers by Lisa Ko
I seem to be stuck at 7 books a month! But all things considered I think that’s pretty good for June, since I was on vacation in New York City for ten days (it was supposed to be nine but my first flight got cancelled) and I barely read while I was there. And I managed to review 6/7 – or 7/7 if you include my Goodreads review of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, which just said “Brilliant.”
It was a pretty solid reading month – this is the first time in ages that the lowest I rated a book in a month was 3 stars. Apologies to The Leavers – I feel a bit bad calling it the worst book I read this month when it really wasn’t bad, but I’m left with no alternative.
I’m also up to a total of 52 books so far this year – how I’ve managed that I literally have no idea, but it was exciting to see that number.
As always, my TBR isn’t set in stone, but here are a couple of things you can look forward to seeing on my blog in the upcoming weeks: I’m currently reading Chemistry by Weike Wang, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, and The First Day by Phil Harrison, all of which I hope to finish within the next week or so. I still need to read See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt and Yesterday by Felicia Yap by their August 1 publication date, and Hadeer was kind enough to lend me two of her books when I saw her a few weeks ago – The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander and The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin, so I’m really looking forward to getting around to those.
What was the best book you read in June? Comment and let me know!
