I am so excited for June. Summer weather can’t come quick enough for us New Englanders. It took me forever to weed through my overwhelming TBR pile to come up with the perfect list for June. I’m planning on getting through as many books as I can this month, since last month was quite the failure. So, without further adieu, let’s take a look at the list!
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
I actually began this book in the month of June, but I’m on the way to finishing it. I really enjoyed Cinder, the first book in the Lunar Chronicles, and I am already loving Scarlet so far. If you are unaware of this series, it is a sci-fi play on our well-loved fairy tales. Scarlet loosely follows the story of Little Red Riding Hood. However, it also continues to develop the characters introduced in the first novel of the series, including Cinder aka Cinderella. Cinderella the CYBORG, among other things. (Ps. This book was totally in my TBR of April…. clearly I’m slacking, try not to judge me.)
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
I know I’m not the only one who has seen the book plastered all over the book world! It’s literally everywhere I look. But how can it not be with that beautiful book cover. The Unexpected Everything seems like the perfect read to kick start these summer vibes. I decided to purchase the audio version of this book. Perfect for listening to on the beach, relaxing in bed, or even working out in the gym!
Red Queen by Veronica Aveyard
Red Queen!!! I need to catch up on this fad. I want to be up-to-date with the love over this book. Plus, I can’t explain why, but I have had this fascination with royalty for months. (Probably because of Game of Thrones, Outlander, AND Reign.) I also have a thing for dystopian fiction.
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
Historical fiction is taking over my book shelf. I remember in high school, (and if I’m being honest, in my undergraduate career…) I was terribly horrible at history. I couldn’t remember dates or historical events for the life of me. I feel like historical fiction actually gives me a chance to pretend to be history smart, even if half of it is fiction. This story follows two sisters and their journey to fight the Nazis as they invade France.
Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
This book has literally been on my bookshelf for years! Firstly, as previously declared, Sarah Dessen is currently one of my favorite authors. Her books are perfect for summer reading. In fact, Keeping the Moon takes place in the summer. The New York Post describes the book as a “Down-to-earth Cinderella story.” I can’t wait to read it! I don’t know why it has taken me this long.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I have become completely and utterly in love with Rainbow Rowell. I just want all of her books. ALL OF THEM. Ugh…look at me, I’m already FANGIRLING. Ha. I just have a feeling I’m going to be relating to this book very, very well.
I’m so excited for summer, you guys! I hope you guys are too. Let me know below what you plan on reading this June.
