Wrap Ups and Hauls

June Wrap Up and Haul

I can’t believe we’re already in July where has half of the year gone, I also can’t believe that my summer holiday is over with as I’m now starting my last placement of first year and the longest at 8 weeks. I’ve had a great relaxing month in June and have been able to spend time sorting out my blog. This month I’ve finally got around to sorting out my About page, I’ve added a rating scale page, I’ve also managed to categorise all of my post making it easier for you to find specific posts and I’ve finally sorted out a blogging schedule which means that even when I’m really busy i should be able to get posts out.

The Books

This month I read 7 books. 5 of these were contemporary which is very unusual for me as I’m not the biggest fan of this genre and usually only read one or two contemporaries a year.

The first book I read was When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. This was a great summer read and you can read my full review here. I gave this 4 out of 5 stars.

The second book I read was The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This was such a powerful and important book that I believe everyone should read as it covers the extremely important topic of police brutality in America and the black Lives Matter movement. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. Review to come.

The third book I read was Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley. This was a great LGBTQI+ book and I loved the bisexual representation in it, though I didn’t love it as much as I hoped I would. I gave this 3.5 out of 5 stars and review to come.

The next book I read was Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. This was a quick fun read though I was disappointed with the ending as I feel it could have been done in a much better way for this reason I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.

The Fifth book I read this month was The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. This book was writing in the form of letters and covers some deep topics. I gave it 4 out of 5 starts.

This month I also reread Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. This is one of my all time favourite classics. I love the story and Jane and Mr Rochester are one of my favourite otps. I gave this 5 out of 5 stars.

The last book I read this month was Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. This is a retelling of the Iliad. This book was amazing and broke my heart. I gave this 5 out of 5 stars. Review to come.

TBR

I wrote my first TBR last month and while I didn’t stick religiously to it I still found it quite helpful. Therefore I’m going to do it again this month.


How has your month been?

  1. OH MY GOSH I love all the books on this list. I agree on Everything, Everything, I like most of the book but the ending could have been better. Our Own Private Universe has been on my tbr for a long time but I just haven’t gotten to it yet. Have you read The Lies We Tell Ourselves also by Robin Talley? I love that book too. Perks of Being a Wallflower is heartbreaking! I need to reread Jane Eyre too! It’s one of my favorite classics as well.

    1. The ending of Everything Everything is putting me off going to see the movie when it comes out. I haven’t read The Lies We Tell Ourselves but after reading Our Own Private Universe I definitely plan on reading the rest of her books. I am glad you love Jane Eyre as well.

      1. Same with me! The ending of the book is why I didn’t go to see the movie. I think you’ll like it! And I need to read Our Own Private Universe soon. Jane is fantastic!
