June 2022 reads

I truly fell back in love with reading this month! The characters. The emotions. The adventures. It was all such a journey through these books and I cannot express enough good things about how much I have loved these books! I can’t believe I read SEVEN books this month!!

A Court of Mist and Fury

Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book set a new standard for romantic storylines everywhere. Every detail was carefully placed to create a dreamy storyline. Phenomenal! I also love that Maas enchants you into this world in such a way you want to go back and re-read all the details over again to fully appreciate the story. Everything is interwoven & I LOVE IT!

A Court of Wings and Ruin

Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book is Feyre’s reputation era and I AM HERE FOR IT. This book *might* be my absolute favorite in the series!!

A Court of Frost and Starlight

Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I feel like I didn’t love this one as much as the other books in the series, but it was a fun Christmasy read! I am determined to re-read over winter to get the full, cozy effect. Also, I absolutely understand the need for this book to be the bridge in the series between the first three with Feyre, being the main character, and the transition to having Fayre being a side character and Nesta moving into a main character position.

A Court of Silver Flames

Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Unexpectedly, I really loved following the continuing storyline from the new perspective of Nesta. I feel like she was relatable without being predictable! SO SO GOOD.

The Love Hypothesis

Ali Hazelwood

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I don’t think a book has ever made me laugh so much! The banter was 20/10 and I felt like Olive was so relatable. I really enjoyed it, especially since I was really concerned about liking another book after the ACOTAR series; but it was PERFECT! I devoured it in three days & I am still laughing at some of the lines from it!

*borrowed from my local library; but will purchase my own copy as I can’t stop thinking about re-reading this one!

Circe

Madeline Miller

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Myths revisited for the modern reader! Madeline Miller weaves familiar myth characters in with new storylines. It was really a great, and fast read! The only complaint I have is that I wish that there was some more twists and turns throughout the book, it seemed to plateau especially about 75% of the way through.

The Secret Bridesmaid

Katy Birchall

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This one was good, but I feel like I wanted a bit more to the story. The main character, Sophie, is super relatable, and I love that there was a *hint* of romance with the focal point relationship being a friendship! It reminded me more of a start to a series rather than a stand alone book, with a lot of loose ends never being tied up!

Well, I hope your June reads were phenomenal as well! Happy Reading 🙂

*affiliate links used in post; however, I always recommend trying your local library for books before buying books (support your libraries!), but if I know I am going to love a book/series OR if there is a super long hold list, I will typically buy. I want to be transparent with my audience, so I will typically say if I borrowed a book from a library, if I don’t say than I bought the book. I appreciate your support if you buy, I might earn a small commission. Thank you!!
