June Wrap Up

june-wrap-up-2016

Hi everyone! I can’t believe June is already over and it’s time for another monthly wrap up! This past month was a pretty decent reading month for me. I ended up completing 7 books and reading a total of 2,987 pages. (This page count includes the books I DNF’d, put on hold, and started but didn’t finish.)


Books Read in June

Last 3 reads (102)

WU2

In June, I read a handful of decent books and some really good ones as well. My favorites would have to be the ones I rated 4 stars – Wolf by Wolf, Walk on Earth a Stranger, and Stalking Jack the Ripper. Wolf by Wolf had an amazing plot and I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens in the conclusion to the duology! Walk on Earth a Stranger was more of a slow burn kind of book, but I really enjoyed it and was never bored. Again, I’m looking forward to what happens next in the series. Stalking Jack the Ripper had amazing writing, a fantastic main character, and a super interesting plot. I’m so glad I was able to read this one early!

Books I DNF’d

WU1

I got The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett as an ARC at B-Fest and unfortunately, it wasn’t for me. I read 70 pages before deciding to put it down. As for Summer Days & Summer Nights, I read a lot more before deciding to DNF. I kept hoping it would get better and when it didn’t significantly improve, I had to DNF. I’m disappointed because I was really anticipating this book!

Book I Put On Hold

Heir of Fire

I was having trouble getting into this book and it actually put me into a bit of a reading slump. I decided to put it on hold for now, but if I can’t get into it the next time I pick it up, I’ll have to DNF!

Book I Started But Didn’t Finish in June

A Book of Spirits and Thieves

I started rereading this book towards the end of the month but was unfortunately unable to finish it before June ended. I ended up completing it around 2 am on July 1st!
