I have stopped pretending that I will be back to my pre-pregnancy reading pace any time soon and am now just taking the months as they come. Having said that, this was still a surprisingly good month quantitiy wise, especially given that my daughter apparently decided that sleeping anywhere that isn’t her father’s or my body is unacceptable, at least during the day. Which is lovely! But also kind of exhausting. Also, I have not managed to drink my one tea a day while it was still hot for what feels like ages.
I have also stopped pretending that I can adhere to any sort of TBR or reading challenge and will now just read whatever I can manage. I have been saying that for ages and still held out hope.
Books I read in June:
- The Chiffon Trenches by André Leon Talley: 3 out of 5 stars
- Black Light by Kimberly King Parsons: 3 out of 5 stars (mini-review)
- Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall: 4 out of 5 stars
- Archangel’s Heart (Guild Hunter #9) by Nalini Singh: 4 out of 5 stars
- Daddy by Emma Cline: 1.5 out of 5 stars
Favourite of the Month:
Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall is all kinds of brilliant. I listened to the audiobook read by the author herself and really appreciated it.
I read 5 books, 4 of which were written by women and one by a man. I read two short story collections (none of which blew me away), one paranormal romance, one memoir, and one essay collection. Three of those books were ARCs. I am not doing well with reviews but I am trying my best.
