June Roundup 2020

Hello my lovelies, another month is over and another is soon beginning. I can’t believe how quickly the world is spinning or how fast the months are turning. It seems to be happening quicker than I can blink my eye. The world is moving far quicker in the world of COVID-19 than it has ever moved before.

Anyway, onto the post. I didn’t read as much as I would have liked to have read this month. Things got a little complicated and stressful and reading took a backseat to it all.

The Good

So, 3 of the 7 books I read this month stood out for me.

Dirty Little Secrets by Jo Spain – was a fabulous read and a very complicated book that really makes you think and re-evaulate how you view the people around you, especially your neighbours.

Six Wicked Reasons by Jo Spain – was a compelling read with multiple POVs to digest. It was intriguing in its setup and it was very much a character based book where the characters propelled the storyline.

Wonderscape by Jennifer Bell – This book was so imaginative and so different from any other children’s book I’ve read recently. It was very original and actually quite complex. I loved reading this and I’m desperately hoping that there will be a follow up book.

The Bad

The Strangeworlds Travel Agency by L. D. Lapinski – Was not a good book for me. The concept was brilliant but I just found it missed the mark completely and there was too much waffling and not enough content to make an interesting read.

The Woods by Vanessa Savage – This book did still rate rather high for me, but if you’ve read my review, you’ll know how disappointed I was by the ending. The ending was just really basic and even then it managed to be rather confusing and I ended up with a sour taste in my mouth over it all.
