June was a busy and stressful month for me, and what does one do when they’re stressed? They buy books of course. This month, many books were sent to me, and I bought quite a few!
I did most of my book-shopping online this month, but I did manage to snag two books from my local bookstore, with where I had a voucher to.
Without further ado, here are the books I bought in June:
The Record Keeper – Agnes Gomillion
After World War III, Earth is in ruins, and the final armies have come to a reluctant truce. Everyone must obey the law or risk shattering the fragile peace. Arika Cobane is a member of the race whose backbreaking labor provides food for humanity, she is destined to become a member of the Kongo elite. Everything changes when a new student spews dangerous words of treason: What does peace matter if innocent lives are lost to maintain it?
If Only – Melanie Murphy
Erin is about to turn thirty and her life is definitely not where she thought it would be. She hates her job, she’s jealous of her perfect flatmate and she has just called off her wedding. She’s trying (sort of) to make a fresh start and get things ‘on track’ finally, but where to begin? A trip home to Ireland to celebrate her birthday with her beloved grandmother is a welcome distraction, but what she’s not prepared for is the gift she receives: a secret family heirloom that will change everything.
I’m going on Holiday next week and I think this book will be perfect to take with me!
I followed the YouTuber Melanie Murphy for years, and I was really happy to hear that she was coming out with a fiction novel.
This story is based in Ireland, and I can’t wait to read it.
The FlatShare – Beth O’Leary
Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time. But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven’t met yet, they’re about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window…
Another book I’ll be taking with me on holidays, as I think this is a perfect summer read!
It’s a contemporary, with a very interesting premise, and I’ve only heard good things about this novel!
I’m exited to see how this book gets executed, and I’m exited to see the romance bloom!
Caraval – Stephaine Garber
Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. And whether Caraval is real or not, Scarlett must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over or a dangerous domino effect of consequences will be set off, and her beloved sister will disappear forever.
This is June’s Book Club pick, and I’m happy to say that I will be finishing this book today, so keep an eye out for my review on Goodreads!
I’ve wanted to read this book since it was first shouted at me by people freaking out about the last installment Finale coming out.
I’m so happy I got and read this book as It was everything I didn’t know I needed.
X-Men Days of Future Past – Alex Irvine
In a dark and dangerous future, the mutant-hunting machines known as the Sentinels rule America with an iron fist. Almost all mutants and superhumans have been exterminated. Only a handful of imprisoned mutants remain to fight against their oppressive robotic overseers! Now Kate Pryde, former X-Man, must travel back in time and warn her present-day teammates of the coming danger – and hopefully prevent this horrible future from ever taking place!
Keeper of the Lost Cities – Shannon Messenger
Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret-at least, that’s what she thinks…
I want to read more middle grade books in the future, and I think this will be a great place to start!
I saw Reagan over at PeruseProject rave about this book, so I knew I had to pick this up!
This is a really long series, so I would have to dedicate a while to these books!
i hope you guys enjoyed, how many books did you get in june? thanks for reading – nick
