This year I decided I would no longer talk about the books I didn’t enjoy (especially in monthly wrap ups) that way I can promote the books I love and spend the energy on them. So below is the best books I read in the month of June.
I don’t know why I put this book off for so long. Maybe I new the rollercoaster ride I was about to take. Because damn. All seven stories are breathtaking and gut punching. It was so sad. Damn you Benjamin.
This author is one of my favourites. I love how he writes its like calming music, even if it’s full of alot of heartbreak and grief. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5
Man when I put this book down I was so mad at Ronan and Adam hahaha. I won’t say much about this book as to not ruin it for anyone. But it was a great read. Ronan is always fun to read. The way all the characters are intertwining is really cool. There where times in this book I could have slapped the sense into my boys. But what can you do.
I didn’t know anything about this book. All I saw was it was like gentleman’s guide and pirates of the Caribbean. I didn’t know it had little mermaid vibes too. And man I loved it. Watching their love blossom and the tragic deal our merman had to make ugh it was just so awesome. I loved the rollercoaster. The more time I’ve had to think about this book after reading it the more I love it.
This is another merman book, but unlike the one above the main relationship to me felt like friends and not lovers. This also has a trans rep which I thought was pretty cool. And the way the mermaids speech is written was a smart way to do it. Overall it was a nice simple read. I was given a free copy from NetGalley for an honest review. 🌟🌟🌟/5
I enjoy a good Peter Pan story, yet I’m not a fan of the Peter Pan story. This story is the tragic backstory of poor James Hook. And Peter is evil as all hell in this. I think personally that this story would fit the Hook origins. I don’t think Peter Pan is this innocent creature. I loved how Brianna wrote this and I hope one day it could be a movie. Maybe Disney should go alittle darker and put this out. 🌟🌟🌟/5
“I am so like my Mama Bear. And we laughed. I’m sure we laughed. Did one of us know even then how April —that cruelest month— would follow, and that I would stand in her closet after, bury my face in the scarf she wore when we hugged goodbye—”
In this book of poems you follow a mother’s grief after losing her daughter to suicide. As someone who has lost a friend to suicide this book of poems really hit me in the feels. You can feel her pain through each poem inside. Literally brought tears to my eyes. I received a copy from NetGalley for an honest review.
