June Wrap-Up

Here are all the books I read in the month of June!!! I hope y’all enjoy!

other-broken-things

1. Other Broken Things by C. Desir

Rating: 5/5 stars

I really loved this book. I thought it was different than most contemporaries I read and it was pretty real. No sugarcoating just brutally honest and just overall really interesting and well written,

the-owl-service

2. The Owl Service by Alan Garner

Rating: 1/5 Stars

Yeah….I really didn’t like this book at all. It’s said to be a “children” or “middle grade” book but I found it confusing and just boring. It just did a horrible job when it came to development.

girl-in-pieces

3. Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

Rating: 5/5 stars

I found this book to be so interesting. It’s way different than what you normally see and I think that’s a good thing. I feel like this is a book a lot of people can take something from. The author just knows how to grab you and pull you into the mind of Charlie, the main character. Excellent writing and excellent book.

the-hat-trick

4. The Hat Trick by Tom Earle

Rating: 5/5 stars

I really loved this book. The story was amazing and just hooked me in. I’m a hockey fan so I was hoping to like this book despite the fact that the last hockey book I read was horrible. This story was so interesting and different and I even questioned if this might have been based on a true story it was just that well put together.

the-fever-code

5. The Fever Code by James Dashner

Rating: 3/5 stars

I thought this book was pretty good. It was a little tough to get in to because it’s been at least a year or two since I read the series. I feel like the lack of answers to some of my questions is why I didn’t love this book. I felt like it was kind of just repetitive and wasn’t really necessary for the series.

on-which-side-of-the-road-do-the-flowers-grow

6. On Which Side of The Road Do The Flowers Grow? by Wendell E. Mettey

Rating: 4/5 stars

This book was very interesting full of great stories. Each story carried an amazing message and it just made me love the book even more. I thought it would be nice to try something different and it was.

sanctum

7. Sanctum by Madeleine Roux

Rating: 3/5 stars

I didn’t think this book was super good, but I didn’t think it was bad. It was a pretty good story and I found it interesting and spooky. It’s also a pretty quick read which is another reason I like this book.

catacomb

8. Catacomb by Madeleine Roux

Rating: 3/5 stars

I thought this book was pretty good, but I don’t think it was necessary to the trilogy. I had more trouble getting through this book as well. It was slower and it wasn’t as spooky as the other ones. I mean it wasn’t a horrible book, but it wasn’t the best book either. It still was pretty interesting though. I also liked the ending.

faceoff

9. Face-Off by Michael Betcherman

Rating: 4/5 stars

I thought this book was pretty good. It threw me for some loops that I wasn’t expecting and I’m pretty happy with how this book turned out. I’m glad I finally picked it up. Also, who doesn’t love goalies haha. This book isn’t your typical hockey book, but that’s what made this book good.

soundless

10. Soundless by Richelle Mead

Rating: 4/5 stars

This book was so good! I’m glad i finally picked it up. It’s a quick and adventurous stand alone novel. I found it so interesting and fun to read. The way the author describes things is almost magical. I really enjoyed this novel and the adventure it took me on.

Exit, Pursued By A Bear

11. Exit, Pursued By A Bear by E.K. Johnston

Rating: 4/5 stars

This book reminded me of Other Broken Things in the sense that it was pretty clear cut and honest instead of like some contemporary that tends to be cheesy. I really enjoyed this book and following Hermione and her stuggles. This is one of those books that deals with a subject that most try to avoid when in reality more books should bring attention to it.

grant-fuhr

12. Grant Fuhr: The Story Of A Hockey Legend by Grant Fuhr and Bruce Dowbiggin

Rating: 4/5 stars

I enjoyed this book and reading about Fuhr’s career. I’m a sucker for goalies and so learning about everything he went through and how he is as a person is pretty cool. It was a very good read and I might read it again when I’m not rushing to finish books haha.

behind-closed-doors

13. Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris

Rating: 5/5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! It kept me guessing and wondering what was going to happen next! I was worried that it was just going to be an over hyped book but I was pleasantly  surprised and understand all the hype surrounding it, because the author’s writing was amazing!

14. Home Ice Advantage by Tom Earle

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

I liked this book, but not as much as I liked Earle’s other book, The Hat Trick. This book did have an interesting story I just feel like maybe it could have gone into a little more detail at some parts. but overall it was pretty good.

when dimple met rishi

15. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Rating: 4/5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. I thought the story was very cute and I loved reading something diverse. I just really enjoyed this book and how strong Dimple and Rishi had to be and I love that they both depended on one another so deeply. Just adorable.

I hope y’all enjoyed seeing all the books I read for the month of June and I hope y’all enjoyed reading a bit about why I gave them the ratings I did!
