Goodreads: My June Book Choices

Who can believe that it’s actually June already? I know I can’t! I’m really excited to get stuck into some new books this month and my oh my do I have a fab pile of books to work through! I got through quite a few last month, all things considered, so I’d like to be able to get through even more this month and finally get a hold on my ever growing to be read pile! Spoiler alert: it’s a bloody long one!

I’m going to kick off June with a few ebooks, particularly Victoria Walter’s short story The Summer I Met You. Victoria informed me that unfortunately this one won’t be published in paperback form as I had hoped, so I downloaded it to my kindle as soon as I could and I plan on getting through it pretty quickly. It’s quite a short one but I’m sure it’ll be just as good as The Second Love of My Life. You can read my review of that here, if you’re interested in checking it out. I’ve started and not yet finished reading The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood. I’m really enjoying this one so far, although the references to maths and physics are going a little bit over my head – I was definitely more of a Chemistry kind of girl. I also hope to read another few ebooks in June as I head off on my summer holidays with my best friends Leah and Lauren at the end of the month. I’ll only be taking my kindle with me so any beach and poolside reading will be done electronically. I’m going to give The Missing by C. L. Taylor a go as well as a recommendation given to me by Leah – House Rules by Jodi Picoult.

I’d quite like to get through a few of the ARCs sent to me by publishing houses as well. I’ve got The Butterfly Summer by Harriet Evans, Lie with Me by Sabine Durrant and The Jacq of Spades by Patricia Loofbourrow to keep me entertained whilst I’m off university for the next few months. I was also given a few books by a friend, The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett and The Humans by Matt Haig. I’ve already started reading The Humans and I’m really enjoying it so far. It’s very funny and I love the style of writing to this point.

Surprisingly, Liverpool’s absolutely beautifully sunny at the moment and I’m looking forward to taking full advantage of this, sitting out on Sefton park reading my book and sipping gin and tonics to my heart’s content (alongside doing some SERIOUS work, of course!)

What’re you planning on reading this month? Have you read any of my choices! Let me know!
