June 2019 Reading Wrap-up

This is a bit of a sparse post compared to  previous monthly wrap-ups. I was doing a musical, then I got sick, and work has been busy. So not only did I not get much reading done, but I also didn’t do much of anything else (Youtube, #bookstagram…)

Past Month’s Reading:

A bit of a slow reading month this month for a  variety of reasons, most of which can be summed up under the umbrella of “life got in the way”. Still, five books is better than no books.

    1. The Diviners by Libba Bray (YA historical fantasy/horror – 4 stars – review)
    2. The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder (playscript/comedy – unrated – not intending to review)
    3. Get the Girl Out by Lucy Bloom (memoir – 4 stars – review)
    4. A Summer Escape and Strawberry Cake at the Cosy Kettle (romance – 3.5 stars – review)
    5. Beau & Bett by Kathryn Berla (YA contemporary – 2.5 stars – review forthcoming)



I have a BookTube Channel where I talk about Australian books. I only got one video posted this month, though I intend to get a bit more on top of it in the coming weeks. Sadly, I didn’t post a single video this month! I really need to get back to that! (I do have two in progress, so you can expect better things come July!)

Favourite Bookish Photo:

Erm… and again, nothing to see here! I posted one photo to Insta all month and it wasn’t bookish.

You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: I am part of the way through The Women In Black by Madeleine St John. This book is considered a bit of a modern classic in Australia, and I am enjoying it so far.

Ebook: I am reading an ARC of Mother Tongue by Julie Mayhew, a YA novel set around the  Beslan School Siege in 2004. I have a feeling this one is going to be herat-rending.

Audio book: I am well on the way to finishing Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray, the second in the Diviners series.

Planning to read next:

I’m honestly not sure! Mother Tongue is the last of my ARCs that are due before I got to America in a couple of weeks. Guess I’ll see where the mood takes me!

What are you reading? 🙂
