What I read in June 2021

Another challenging month, as my brain continues to fire crap at itself. I read ten books, which is less than I usually read, but still good! Seven of them were for tours, so I’ve had lots of review-writing to keep me busy, at least.

Mary Jane, Ghosts, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, This is How We Are Human, Fragile

Mary Jane, by Jessica Anya Blau - 5*

Ghosts, by Dolly Alderton - 4*

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, by V. E. Schwab - 4.5*

This is How We Are Human, by Louise Beech - 4.5*

Fragile, by Sarah Hilary - 4*

Fear Less, Mirrorland, One Last Time, A Cut for a Cut, The Beresford

Fear Less: How to win at life without losing yourself, by Dr Pippa Grange - 3.5*

Mirrorland, by Carole Johnstone - 4*

One Last Time, by Helga Flatland, translated by Rosie Hedger - 4*

A Cut for a Cut, by Carol Wyer - 4*

Looking ahead…

The Missing Sister, Rabbit Hole, Good Samaritans, The Great Silence, Invisible Victim

This month I’m planning to read the new releases from three of my go-to crime authors - Mark Billingham, Mel Sherratt, and Doug Johnstone. Having enjoyed my first Will Carver book, The Beresford, for a blog tour, I also intend to read the copy of Good Samaritans that’s been sitting on my Kindle for an embarrassingly long time.

I didn’t get round to reading the Lucinda Riley’s The Missing Sister as planned last month, so I’m going to try to get to it this month. I was so sad to read about her death from cancer shortly after this final instalment in a series I love was published.
