June Wrap Up

IMG_6570(1)

So  I read a total of 15 books this month! I had several ARC’s that I needed to get caught up on so I think about half of the books this month were advanced reading copies. I really LOVE getting advanced reading copies and free review copies, but I always feel like I need to read and review them ASAP. I mean, the publisher took the time to send me a free book, so I feel I should take the the time to read and review it as soon as I can. But I received so many in the last 1-2 months (awesome, thank you to all the wonderful publishers) that I got quite backed up, so I took the last week of this month to read all but 2 of them. I read some fantastic books this month and got more into the fantasy genre and I am really loving it!

“A Court of Thorns and Roses” by Sarah J. Maas  4/5 stars

“A Court of Mist and Fury” by Sarah J. Maas 5/5 stars

“All is Not Forgotten” by Wendy Walker (ARC) 3/5 stars

“The Assassin Game” by Kirsty McKay (ARC) 2/5 stars

“Last Seen Leaving” by Caleb Roehrig (ARC) 3/5 stars

I read some great books this month, my favorites being A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury. I also really enjoyed The May Queen Murders and would highly recommend these 3 books. I have posted full reviews for all of the books I have read this moth, except for the ARC’s. If you follow my blog, you will know that I only post reviews for ARC’s on my blog if I really love them, such as The Girls by Emma Cline or All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda (this was released this week, read it, it’s brilliant). Otherwise, I generally just send the review to the publisher and write a review on Goodreads and sometimes Amazon, if the publisher requests it. I have so many books I want to read right now, my book haul this month was a bit ridiculous as usual, but I reviews a lot of newer books because of my birthday, so I am currently trying to figure out my July TBR. What were you favorite books you read in June?
