Oh my goodness! I didn’t get to half my TBR for the month of June. Summer is such a busy time. We are still doing some minor remodeling with our house as well. So crazy busy! However, I did read a few! Hopefully I have more suggestions for you at the end of July. Lets just go though my reads from June and I’ll give you a YES, SO GOOD or a NOPE.
A Fine Gentlemen was good. It had humor and mystery. Also for my reader that enjoy a proper/clean romance this was a very fun story. YES. Read it.
I listened to The Traitor’s Kiss on Audible and really enjoyed the story. It is a fantasy, but not too crazy. It was set in a time long ago, no magic or anything. Just a different time. Loved the characters and can’t wait for book 2 to come out. YES.
Since We Fell was my choice from BOTM. It is a mystery thriller that wasn’t that mysterious or thrilling. It started out good. The writing style was good and then somewhere along they way it stopped making sense. Characters were thrown in and out and all around and the storyline was not a good one. No. No. NOPE.
Fairest.. My love for The Lunar Chronicles is no secret. What is funny is that this series totally snuck up on me. I was so hesitant to read it. Everyone was talking about it. I think I had Cinder in my Amazon cart for like 3 years. No joke. I started it and didn’t really understand what all the hype was about but I kept going. When I finished I was so sad. It wormed its way into my heart forever! Fairest is a novella that tells Queen Levana’s story. I really enjoyed the added information. YES. Also, if you are reading the series then you should read it between book 3 and 4.
Color of Love was an historical romance about an Indian woman that was raised with an English family. She is unsure of her place in the world. Anita Stansfield likes to write books about hardship and trials and how finding God is the key to overcoming them and finding happiness. It is a proper romance as well. I did like this book but it was so so so slow. I kept rolling my eyes through out. Ha ha. Like, is this serious? As far as a recommendation goes I probably would say.. NAH. It was okay but I’m sure you could find something better.
Thanks for reading!
I know what you mean! I expected summer to be super relaxing with plenty of time for reading and endless cups of lemonade and here I am struggling to meet my TBR as the months quickly blur into one another! I’ve been looking for a good fantasy novel that isn’t too “out there” (if you catch my drift :)). I might just give Fairest a try (after I finish When Dimple Met Rishi, this :D).
I look forward to reading more from you soon, Happy Reading 🙂
I know! I had such high expectations for my reading list this summer but so far it’s been a bust! Fairest is part if the Lunar Chronicles and I really loved them. The first book is actually my least favorite but they build and build and at the end I was a little heart broken it was over. Lol. I’m hopefully going to read Heartless next. It’s also from Marissa Meyer. It’s a twist on Alice and Wonderland. ☺

Wow, really! Anything reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland is definitely an instant addition to my TBR! Yeah, I know what you mean, I love those moments when a book just gets soooo good and fulfilling and then suddenly everything draws to a close and the fictional universe created collapses. I felt that way with The Night Circus.
