June was an exciting and at times boring reading month for me. I read an additional 4 books this month which brings my total for the year to 26 books out of my goal for 50 books. I think that this month was also the most spread out in terms of ratings as well.
Let's get into the Roundup.
5 Star Books
My two 5 star books for the month of June were The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennet (you can find my original review here.) and Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert (you can find my original review here.) I loved both of these books and they are 5 star reads for me for very different reasons. The amazing storyline of the characters in the Vanishing Half to the romcom humor of Dani and Zaf in Take a Hint, Dani Brown. Both of these are must-reads for me and both of these must be added to your to-be-read list.
3 Star Book
This month, I did not have a 4 star read, but I did have a 3 star read. My 3 star read for the month was Home Before Dark by Riely Sager. (You can read my original review here.) Home Before Dark was a brand new book category for me as my first thriller. A thriller that I spent the first 2/3 of the book not being thrilled by, the hit here is the last 1/3 of the book. The last bit makes the other boring, slow, tedious bits worth it. If you love a good thriller, you will be thrilled by this and you should add it to your to-be-read list if you can handle the majority of the book not being worth it.
2 Star Book,
For this month I had one 2 star book, and I think that One to Watch is my first two-star book and probably my lowest rated book since I started doing book reviews. (You can read my original review here.) One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London was not and is not a one to read as far as I am concerned. One to Watch is basically bachelor/bachelorette fanfic with a fat female lead. I found it to be boring, edduninspired, and the romance storyline didn't make much sense to me. I would skip adding this to your to-be-read pile.
Alright! That's all folks! See you in July for the July 2020 Book Round up!
