If you had told me last month that I’d manage to get through the nineteen books I picked up to read in June, I would’ve laughed in your face. But here we are.
June has been the busiest month of the year so far – and also the most stressful. I’ve been working through a lot of anxiety and reading has become more of an escape than ever before. If I’m not sitting in front of the tv with a glass of wine, binging Schitt’s Creek, I’m reading. In fact, several of the books I got through this month were read within 24 hours or in one sitting (which isn’t something I typically do).
However, despite having read so many books, I actually wouldn’t consider this a “good reading month” because a lot of these novels received super low ratings. I just had a tough time enjoying them. Some were due to not living up to the hype, others were just boring, and the rest were challenging because they weren’t what I wanted after reading a 5-star book. Check out which ones did live up to my expectations (and which fell a little flat).
