What I Read in June 2020

It’s such a nice feeling when you look through your TBR stack (or more of a list in my case) and are just so excited to read all of the books on it. Lockdown has meant I’ve gone back to using NetGalley a bit more – for ease more than anything – so I’ve had the chance to read some very exciting new books. Plus a few I’ve been meaning to read for ages:

My June Reviews:

(Click on book title for my full review.)

/ Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

/ Evil Under the Sun by Agatha Christie

/ The Weekend by Charlotte Wood

/ A Theatre for Dreamers by Polly Samson

/ Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge

/ Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

/ The Truants by Kate Weinberg

June was a cracking little reading month: The Truants, Mexican Gothic and The Weekend are all new summer 2020 releases and although they couldn’t be more different from each other, I highly recommend all of them.

My non-fiction read was Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race. This was a hugely eye-opening, important book about the intrinsic, institutionalised racism problems in Britain and the role we can all play in ending this.

I was lucky enough to take part in the blog tour for A Theatre for Dreamers – an atmospheric read that transports you to a Greek island. Perfect if you’re in the mood for a little literary weekend break, due to the lack of real holiday opportunities right now.

Agatha Christie even made an appearance this month too. Evil Under the Sun is a brilliant Hercule Poirot story that sees him trying to take a holiday on the Devon coast, but – as always seems to happen to him – murder follows him there…

And there we have it! Totally enjoyed this month’s books and July is looking like a great reading month too. What’s on your summer reading list?

Until next month, happy reading!
