Thanks to my latest WIP winding down (Hale and Gemini releases in three weeks!) and the kiddos out of school, I've swapped a lot of my writing time for reading time. I can take books to the park, nature center, beach, and all the other kid-friendly places, and it's done wonders for my TBR. Check out all these books I read in the month of June!
1. My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman
2. Ready Player One by Ernie Cline
3. Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore
4. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
5. The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay
6. Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
7. Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
8. Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater
9. Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab
Both My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry and The Sea of Tranquility were Book Club reads, and while I liked the first, I LOVED The Sea of Tranquility.
Shiver, Linger, Forever, and Sinner are the four books of the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, a Twilight-esque story focused on werewolves in Minnesota. Sam and Grace were just the cutest couple and I loved Cole's chaos added to the mix. He and Isabel were super fun!
Ready Player One was an 80's-inspired video game book that was really fun and creative, and I heard they're making it into a movie! Can't wait!
Reincarnation Blues was one of the ARCs I received at BookCon, and I got it signed by the author. This book still lives in the little corners of my heart. I can't even with Milo and Suzie. I'm never going to get over it.
And Our Dark Duet is the sequel to This Savage Song and it's just as epic, with beautiful writing and awesome monsters, and who doesn't love August? *swoon* The ending left me crushed. CRUSHED.
For July, I'm hoping to get to another ten books read off my TBR. What should I read? Here's what I've got:
