For once I’m actually surprised that I managed to read so much! *lol* Okay, admittedly two of those seven books were mangas but still! At least 3 of my seven books had more than 300+ pages and this is quite an achievement. Rating wise June apparently wasn’t an all too good month though.
Well, at least I only had one 5 paws read and this was „Fruits Basket Vol.22“! XD Either I’m getting extremely picky lately or I need to find a good book that’ll sweep me off my feet. I might be inclined to say it is the latter. 😛
Still, overall June was a very productive month and I’m glad I managed to get in a few pages every once in a while . (Obviously to find some time to review those books properly is an entirely different matter though. *looks at my kid, raising an eyebrow* *lol*)
Anyway! Before I head to the official wrap-up and my monthly statistic I want to mention two things WordPress was kind enough to point out to me: In the last 9 months I wrote 100 blog posts and got a total of 1.337 likes for them. Which is just: WOW!!! Thank you all so much for following my blog and reading my posts! ❤ It makes me happy to be among so many talented and wonderful people and I really hope I’ll get to know even more of you over the years to come! 🙂
This said we can finally move on to my monthly statistic before I get all emotional again XD:
Books read: 7
Pages read: 2.060 (And the amount of pages is still sinking. 89 less than last month, but still 7 books. Weird. XD)
Average rating: 3.86 (Ohhh, as it seems I’m getting really picky now. *lol*)
Books that were on my reading list: 4 (2 from 2018 and 2 from 2019)
Leah on the Offbeat:
I had such high hopes for this and I guess that might have been part of the problem in the end. „Leah on the Offbeat“ was a nice and fast read but I had so many issues with the book and the topics it tackled that I just couldn’t give it more than 3 paws. I kinda hoped that it would be as fluffy as „Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda“ but that didn’t happen and I got a pretty unsatisfying bi rep instead. If you want to know why I was so unhappy you can read my full review here!
Lost in the Clouds:
THIS BOOK WAS SO CRAZY! *lol* Half of the time I didn’t know what was happening and was confused as hell but I also wanted to continue and find out more so despite my utter bafflement I still enjoyed it? *bites lips and frowns* Well, it definitely was something new. Haha! Guess I can’t say more than that and this will have to suffice. XD
The Empty Grave:
All the while I read this book I was struggling with my feelings. On the one hand I wanted to read this so badly but on the other hand I didn’t want it to end. It’s always hard to finish a series and „Lockwood & Co.“ was one of those that never truly leave you. I’ll miss all of Strouds precious characters but it was a good ending to a great series and I can’t ask for more than that. Thank you Stroud! ❤ If you want to read my review you can do it on goodreads.
This book made me realize that I need to steer clear of dystopian books for a while. *lol* Don’t get me wrong, the book was good but damn I hate injustice and all those dystopian books seem to have it aplenty. >_< In „The Power“ it were women that suppressed men and in „Vox“ it was the other way around and both scenarios made me angry af! XD So uh, no dystopian sci fi books for me. XD (At least for a few months…)
City of Ghosts:
My first Victoria Schwab book and I really enjoyed it! Since this was middle grade I’m really curious about her YA and adult books now though. I can’t wait to see what Schwab is going to do with a more mature setting so I’m totally ready to get lost in her other series. 🙂 „City of Ghosts“ definitely was a good start and caused me to crave for more.
Fruits Basket Vol. 21 & Vol. 22: 4 Paws &
This series!!! OMG!! THIS SERIES!!! ❤ My heart is so full and so empty at the same time! I really could have read at least 20 volumes more! Natsuki Takaya’s characters grew on me and to finish this manga felt like saying goodbye to a beloved family member. I’ll miss them all so much and Vol.22 made me cry so hard that my vision was so blurry I could barely read. ❤ My only five paws read this month and it broke my heart. *sobs*
So what about you? Did you read any interesting books in June? Maybe even one I had in my wrap-up as well? If yes, what did you think of it? Did you like it or hate it? Can you recommend me a new fave?
Talk to me and let me know! =)
