I hope you’re doing well!
It’s that time of the month again – wrap up time! Overall I’m quite happy with the amount of books I read this month. I had a bit of a mini reading slump in the middle of the month so I’m happy to have read 7 books. I know some were graphic novels, poetry and shorter reads, but a book is still a book! 😊
I hope you enjoy this wrap up,
23. The Passengers – John Marrs
Thoughts: This was such an action packed book with so many twists and turns. Perfect for fans of the TV series Black Mirror, it leaves readers questioning their own morals and sheds a light on gang mentality, cancel culture and the affects Social Media has on people’s opinions of others.
24. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Vol 2 – Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Thoughts: If you’re a fan of the TV series, you totally need to read the comics. There’s currently 8 in total and they’re quick reads. Volume two contains the last four comics. They’re certainly darker than the TV show and go into more details about certain characters, which is interesting to read.
25. The Paper & Hearts Society – Lucy Powrie*
Thoughts: What an absolutely lovely book I wish was around when I was a teenager. Its about a group of friends who begin a book club to share their passion for reading. It includes many pop culture references and a beautiful trip to Bath. It’s out this month and I would definitely recommend giving it a read.
26. Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race – Reni Eddo-Lodge
Thoughts: This is an absolutely necessary and important read about race, and the way black people were and still are being treated in the U.K. in particular. It’s completely eye opening and emphasises how much inequality still exists, especially for black women and how casual racism is being overlooked when it needs to be acknowledged and tackled.
27. She Was The Storm – Cherie Avritt
Thoughts: This is a moving and greatly written collection of poetry that deals with emotions, mental health and heartbreak. It’s perfect for fans of Rupi Kaur’s milk and honey.
28. Where There’s a Will – Beth Corby*
Thoughts: This was unlike anything I’ve previously read. Hannah begins a journey to complete a set of tasks set by her great-uncle Donald that has passed away. It was such an interesting book, deep rooted in nostalgia – it’s the perfect summer read.
29. in the absence of the sun – Emily Curtis
Thoughts: Another moving and powerful collection of poetry. It focuses on mental health and building yourself back up after being hurt. Emily Curtis is a brilliant writer.
Wow, all the books this month are four star ratings! It’s very rarely I have this many books with them same ratings. As you may have noticed, I tend to be quite reserved in my ratings, so if I book gets four stars, you know I really enjoyed them. 😊
So overall a successful reading month!
