I officially hit my unofficial Peace Corps book reading goal this month – I have read over 300 books in the 27 months that I was here!
Books I Read in June:
Camp Half-Blood Confidential by Rick Riordan
This is the perfect book for you if you’ve ever wanted to know about the demi-god camp through the eyes of its campers and a really enthusiastic geyser spirit. You can read my review here.
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
I have so much love for this series, if you haven’t read it yet please do. You can read my review here.
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
The conclusion was so incredible and if you haven’t read this series before, please go do so now. You can read my review here.
Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith
This was a cute contemporary and a great read for the summer. I’ve never read a book about someone winning the lottery, especially not a young adult novel so this was an interesting premise. Check out my review here!
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
I’ve been so excited to re-read Harry Potter this month, but the Wizarding World Book Club still hasn’t provided any further information… so I decided to read this for now (and probably Quidditch Through the Ages Next). Be sure to read my review here.
I’m Not Your Manic Pixie Dream Girl by Gretchen McNeil
This was a cute learning about yourself/coming of age novel. You can read my review here..
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
I absolutely fell in love with this book (legitimately read it in one late night sitting) and you can check out my review here!
Kill All Happies by Rachel Cohen
I wanted to love it with it’s (abandoned) theme park setting.. Alas, this one just didn’t speak to me, but you can check out my review here.
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
This was a fun mystery that reminded me of the Breakfast Club and Pretty Little Liars. I really enjoyed reading it, you can check out my review here!
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
This was such a cute book and I loved the diverse representation in it. It is so nice to see more POC main characters in YA books. You can read my review here.
The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash
I loved that this book took place at NYCC because it spoke to my fandom loving heart. You can read my review here!
Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz
This was an adorable YA historical fiction based upon the (know well known) romance between Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler – you can read my review here.
A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
I ended up liking this book a lot more than a Star-Touched Queen, but you can check out my review and thoughts here.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
This book was so cute, frustrating and really.. everything. You can read my review here.
Amina’s Voice by Hena Khan
This was a cute middle grade book about friends, family, religion and being yourself in the modern world. You can read my review here.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
After watching the Netflix show, I knew I wanted to read the book and see how the show compared. You can read my review next week.
The Circle by David Eggers
I still don’t even know what to thing.. You can read my review next week.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
What would a slightly obsessive Shadowhunter month be without re-reading the series that started it all? Check out my review here!
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
I love this series… You can read my review here.
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
You can read my review next week.
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
You can read my review next week.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
The Wizarding World book club finally started, so I just re-read the first book from my favourite series yesterday!! I may write a little review for it, but seriously what can I say about the Queen? I’ll feel like nothing does it justice.
Books I Plan to Read in July (or am excited about publishing in July):
Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab
I have the first book sitting on my shelf just waiting to be read, so in all likelihood, I will read it once I get home in July. But I am excited that it’s coming out this month!
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
This book sounds intriguing so it’s definitely on my TBR – let’s see if I get to it. I have a big list of books I expect to read this month!
Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
This book is so pretty and it’s about a circus – so yes please!
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
I don’t know how quickly the Wizarding World book club plans to read the books in the series, so I may or may not be re-reading this next month. To be honest, I’ll probably become tired of waiting and just read them all at once.
City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
Are there any books that are coming out in July that you are super excited to read? What books should I add to my mountain of a TBR? Let me know in the comments below!
