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!
