June Wrap Up

Hey everyone! I can’t believe we’re halfway through the year. 2018 is flying by, but that means we’re closer to my most anticipated read of the year – Queen of Air and Darkness! June wasn’t my best reading or blogging month because of moving; however, I read five books and I enjoyed all of them. I read two contemporary books and three fantasy. My average rating was 4.8, which is quite high. Most of the books I read this month made it on my list for 2018 favorite reads. Without further ado, let’s get into the wrap up.

1. The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang – This was one of my favorite books of the year. It’s adult fantasy inspired by modern Chinese history. I gave this 5/5 stars and I can’t wait for the sequel. You can read my review here.

2. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Reid Jenkins – This book was another one of my favorite reads of the year. This was such an unforgettable story. The writing and the plot was incredible. I rated it 5/5 stars. Review to come.

3. A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir – A Reaper at the Gates is the best sequel I’ve read so far in 2018. I loved Laia’s growth and the parallels to modern day issues. This was a 5 star read as well. I’m undecided about reviewing this book because it’s the third book in the series and I want to be careful not to spoil the other two books for anyone.

3. The Gentlemen’s Guide to Guide and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee – This was a fun read and I enjoyed the characters. I think this book could have been 100-150 pages shorter, but still a fun story. Rated this one 4/5 stars.

4. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – Lady Midnight was a re-read because I missed the Blackthorns and I’m obsessed with this series. I can’t wait for Queen of Air and Darkness in December. Gave this one 5/5 stars.

    1. I’ve only read this Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows in the Shadowhunter Chronicles. *hides* When I picked up Lady Midnight last year I didn’t realize it was part of an established world lol. I’m not sure if I’ll read the other series lol
