June has come and gone and so has this very strange end of the school year. I’m looking forward to my summer vacation and some reading and relaxing. Before I can jump into that, however, I have to look back on my reading month in June. I read 23 books this month, which I feel pretty good about. You’ll find everything I read below the cut.
I didn’t actually buy any books in June and I’m pretty proud of myself for that. However, I did order some books in May from Indigo and they came in this month. I also got my May OwlCrate box in and it was super exciting because it had a book AND a graphic novel.
June’s book for the #bestiemademe challenge is Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim. Kari has also reviewed this book, and you can find that here. She absolutely loved it, and honestly, this is another recommendation that she knocked out of the park. I really, really had a good time reading this book and I ended up giving it 4 stars on Goodreads.
Despite the fact that COVID-19 has thrown off OwlCrate’s usual schedule, I still really loved this box and everything that it had in it. I think that the theme (Full Moon Magic) was super fun and the items all really fit the theme. I just wanted to do a quick post to go over everything that came in the box, and my thoughts on the items. You’ll find that all below the cut.
The May book for the #bestiemademe challenge was A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer. Kari has been bugging me to read this book for a long time, as is the standard with all of the #bestiemademe books. And as with all of these books, Kari was right. I was really engaged in this story, and absolutely loved it. I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads.
