It’s July tomorrow – that’s just nuts. Somehow 2021 is half over. I think I’m OK with that… every day towards the end of pandemic life has got to be a good thing. But onto books!
My reading rate has been high recently, I’ve been very good at just stopping a book and moving on if I’m not enjoying it, so it means I can crack on reading books that spark something in me. Like these!
My June Book Reviews:
(Click on book title for my full review.)

/ Dead Man’s Folly by Agatha Christie
/ Peach by Emma Glass
/ Divorced, Beheaded, Died… by Kevin Flude
What a ride this month’s reads have been! There was a few murder mysteries in the mix – from some classic Agatha to a brand new release from Katie Lowe to The Brighton Mermaid that I’ve been meaning to read for ages (and so glad I did!) – murder mysteries are always going to be one of my favourite genres and these three were all great reads.
Peach, Animal and Inferno all turned the spotlight on women’s rage and mental health. All wildly fascinating and beautifully reads (Inferno is non-fiction, about the author’s time in a psychiatric unit due to postpartum depression) they left me thinking and the characters are still imprinted on my brain.
I actually managed two non-fiction books this month, with Divorced, Beheaded, Died… being the second – an excellent little snapshot of the kings and queens of Britain, if you’ve ever wondered who they all were or wanted to know the key facts about each – this is your book.
What have you been reading this month? Let me know below!
Ooooh, I have The Brighton Mermaid on my Kindle – maybe it’s time to read it!
