June | Wrap Up

June was by no means a bad month for me, but I did see my reading taper off slightly. Now, you’re probably going to look below and think I am making it up, but the fact is there were multiple days this month where I didn’t read a thing and that has not been the case for previous months. I know I still had an OK performance, and I did still finish the readathons I was taking part in, but I didn’t really read as much as I would have liked to. I did enjoy what I read though, again, and branched out into paranormal and sci-fi – two genres I would not usually reach for!

I went to South Wales for a weekend to visit friends and have an all around nice time, so I didn’t read too much for that weekend. I did also go away to Russia towards the end of the month, so excitement and preparation for this trip and then actually going on it will have affected things, but it was worth it for sure!

In June, I read 12 books, which is 4,051 pages, and all of which were new reads to me.

I read 12 fiction books, a mix of fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, paranormal, and contemporary romance.

By Format, I read 6 Audiobooks, 1 ebook, 1 eARC, 1 Comic and 3 paperback.

The average rating was 3.96/5 Stars for all of the books that I read in June.

I’ve read some great books this month, but the ‘Book of the Month’ for June is…

What Happens Now? by Sophia Money-Coutts

Well at least we are vaguely on time this month eh? The only reason this is late is because I flew back into the UK from St. Petersburg Russia and got home late Thursday night so I have waited until I was awake enough to finish it! As much as I am disappointed that I didn’t read more this month, I had a fab June so it was still a good month overall and that’s what counts!

I am ready for a book filled July, are you?

How was your May What did you read?

Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
