Ah, June. It finally started warming up this month to feel like spring around here. Along with that, the craziness of May wound down and I was able to take time for myself and for reading. All in all, a great month!
Although every book I’ve reviewed this month was a review copy, I really enjoyed most of them, giving the majority a four out of five mugs. I also listened to two audiobooks this month just for fun and those reviews will be coming soon, so stay tuned!
Ready to see the books?
Books I read and reviewed:
Baby Teeth won’t be for everyone, but if you’re a fan of creepy reads following dysfunctional families it might be right up your alley.
Bring Me Back wasn’t the best psychological thriller I’ve ever read but the writing was so gripping I couldn’t put this down.
The Burning was a compelling suspense story that dealt with some dark themes.
Shelved Under Murder wasn’t quite as good as the first book in this series but it was still a fun and entertaining cozy mystery.
Books I read but haven’t reviewed:
The audiobook for Behind Her Eyes was incredibly entertaining and I personally loved the twist Pinborough took on a prototypical thriller formula!
I listened to Annihilation on audio and then watched the movie and found the two to complement each other, coming at the story from slightly different persepectives.

On the stack for next month:
The first week in July, I’ll be taking an internet and social media break. I have a couple posts scheduled to go up that week but won’t be around to chat. But I’ll be back after July 8th to respond to any comments left and catch up with everyone! During that week, I’m looking forward to relaxing and spending plenty of time reading – and getting back into a more happy balance of review copies and just for me reads. Not sure how the red and blue covers theme happened here, but it is rather fortuitous given the red, white, and blue color scheme you always see around Fourth of July!
What are you reading or planning on reading next?
