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!
