June 2018 Reading Wrap-up


I didn’t get much read from my “official” TBR this month. I wasn’t really in the mood for a lot of it. As you can see, there are two DNFs on there, and only one finish. I’ve actually put the remaining books from this list back into my TBR Jar, and I’m going to construct a whole new TBR for July/August. I need to read what I’m in the mood for or I’m never going to read anything.

Past Month’s Reading:

Here’s my May-June TBR:

So… yeah, that’s it.

That doesn’t mean I wasn’t reading, though! Here’s what I read and reviewed:

  • The Strings of Murder by Oscar de Muriel (historical/murder mystery – 4 stars – review) (read May, reviewed June)
  • Shine by Candy Gourlay (YA contemporary/magical realism – 4.5 stars – review)
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik (historical fantasy – 2.5 stars – review)
  • Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen (YA historical fiction – 3 stars – review)
  • A Fever of the Blood by Oscar de Muriel (historical/murder mystery – 4 stars – review)
  • The Hunt by Oscar de Muriel (historical short story – no rating – not planning to review)
  • Zombie Playlist by K. J. Chapman (zombie apocalypse – 3 stars – review)
  • Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner (YA sci-fi – 3 stars – review to come)
  • I Had Such Friends by Meg Gatland-Veness (YA contemporary – 2 stars – review to come)

Currently reading:

Physical book: She Be Damned by M. J. Tjia, a Victorian murder mystery led by a courtesan/actress/private detective. I picked this up because the sequel is currently a Read Now on NetGalley but I’m not sold yet. I’m also slowly making my way through All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque.

Ebook: Having literally just finished I Had Such Friends this morning, no ebook currently on the go.

Audio book: A Mask of Shadows by Oscar de Muriel, book 3 in the Frey & McGray series. I’ve listened to less than an hour of it so far, and while it feels a bit different to the first two in the way it opens, I’m not passing too much judgement just yet.

Planning to read next:

As I said, I’ve got a new TBR for the next couple of months which I will post tomorrow, but I think Blackwing by Ed McDonald will be next.

How is your reading going?
