June 2021 Reading Wrap Up

June was the best reading month I’ve had so far! I read a total of 17 books. It’s interesting to notice that the more books I read the amount of 4 and 5 stars has gone down, but thankfully I didn’t come across any really terrible books. I’m kind of amazed that it’s taken me a year to get back into my normal reading pattern, but I’m enjoying it while it lasts. Who knows how my reading will go once I have the baby! 😀

2 Stars: 1 book

I have mixed feelings about Gertrude Stein. Some of her work is really good and some of her work is just too weird for me. This book was just straight up boring unfortunately.

3 stars: 9 books

A lot of pretty good reads here! Piranesi and Convenience Store Woman were both interesting and a little weird (in a good way!), Kid Gloves and Body Full of Stars were traumatic birth books. And I reread The Catcher in the Rye and didn’t hate it this time! I’ll be sure to get back into my reviews soon.

4 Stars: 4 books

Some of you might recognize Next Year For Sure, because I read it awhile back and wrote a review of it. The rest of these books are first time reads and I had a really great time with them. I highly recommend 50 Things To Do Before You Deliver.

5 Stars: 3 books.

I completed my yearly read of Just Kids! It was a really good month to read it because I’d been searching for my next inspirational read and I figured, why not go back to a classic? If you want to check out a past review of it I’ll leave a link here.

That’s all I read last month! How was June for you? If you’ve written a wrap-up post don’t forget to leave a link to it in the comments!

If you enjoyed my post please consider checking out some others! I review books, film, as well as have some cooking posts under the tag “weekend cooking”. I write about queerness, polyamory, pregnancy and my normal life as well. You could also consider tipping me through Ko-Fi, which is basically the same as buying me a coffee! I have a patreon where I share exclusive poetic and writing content. Thank you for reading.

  1. Read The Bell Jar for uni ages ago. Absolutely loved it. I haven’t written a post for June yet. Impressed by how much you’ve read in a month. Struggling to find time, started listening to audiobooks when getting chores done. Hoping to read more in July.

    • Agreed, The Bell Jar is amazing!
      Audiobooks are great for getting chores done, I hope you’re able to read some fantastic books this month. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
