June Wrap Up!

Hello everyone! I can’t believe that we are in July but… here we are! As usual, time flew by and here we are with a new wrap-up, so let’s begin! And I am really glad to say that June was a month without DNF! Yay!

Books read: 14 + 1 really short short short story
Physical books Vs ebooks: 3 vs 12
ARCs: 5

The Amazing Ones!

Well, Theatre of Cruelty was a short short short story, but it was amazing, so here it is. And Snuff it was, it was… I don’t have the words for it. It was so so good. And amazing. And marvelous. You get the gist, right? I loved it to pieces! And then we have The Thief Who Knocked on Sorrow’s Gate. This is the third book in the series. I really really enjoyed the first book, the second book was okay but this third one? It was pure bliss! And now I have to continue it ASAP! I am looking forward to next book (and I am pretty sad that I cannot say the same for Pratchett’s book too, because The City Watch is the series I loved the most in the Discworld, and knowing there this was the last Vimes book was bittersweet, but good).

The Really Good Ones!

June was a really good month for my reading, I read a lot of good books, and a good number of them were ARCs too, so yay! And I am talking about The Witness For the Dead, The Coward, The Blacktongue Thief and The Helm of Midnight. And since I was a good bookworm this month, I have managed to write a review for the lot of them. I am feeling very proud of myself at the moment. And then I have read Boyfriend Material, and I had a great time with it, it was funny and it was a needed breath between more demanding fantasy and, last but not least, The Haunting of Tram Car 015. This was fast-paced and delicious. I am looking forward to the full-length book!

The Good Ones!

All of these books were good, every one in its unique way, and I enjoyed them, even if they weren’t special to me. The Serial Dater’s Shopping List has the kindest protagonist ever, Izzy has no a mean bone in her body and she was refreshing, and even if it is a fiction book it would be the perfect guide if you are interested in dating apps and services. But if you are not, well… there is not much to it. It wasn’t bad or really boring, but it wasn’t special either. Hard Reboot was a fast and interesting reading, and I loved the world-building, but sadly I didn’t care much for the characters. I enjoyed it, yes, and I would read another book set in this world because it was really interesting, but it didn’t stay with me once I finished it. Wicked Saints wasn’t bad, and I was really invested in a couple of characters, so I am a bit undecided toward the series. Would I continue it or not? To be completely honest, probably not, but the jury is still out with this one. Mr. Malcom’s List was pretty funny and lighthearted, and I enjoyed it, but I was hoping for something more. I read it with pleasure, and I enjoyed my time with it, it is one of those perfect book for taking a pause, and to spend some time pleasurably and without too much thoughts, but it could have been something more. What Angels Fear has a great MC, I really liked it, and the story was quite intriguing but it couldn’t keep my interest totally engaged. It was not boring, and probably I would try book two and see how that goes but… but I was expecting something a bit more engaging, and I cannot really say what went wrong here! And then we have When We Were Vikings, it was a peculiar book, not my usual choice, but I was intrigued by the idea, and I enjoyed it, Zelda is a great character and see her grow was good.

My Reviews:
The Blacktongue Thief by C. Buehlman
The Coward by S. Aryan
The Witness For the Dead by K. Addison
The Watch tv show
The Helm of Midnight by M. J. Lostetter
Shards of Earth by A. Tchaikovsky

Series:
Finished: 1+1 last volume published
Continued: 1

So, that’s all for my June. I have read some pretty amazing books, and even if I didn’t continue a lot of series (and I have started a lot of new ones, oh my!) I am pretty happy with it all, and I hope July would be another good month!

And what about you?  And have you read some of the books I have mentioned? And how were your past months?? Let me know!!!

Happy reading!
S.
