June Reading Round-up #Amreading #bookaddict

June 2020 reading wrap up

I don’t know about anyone else, but I just can’t get my reading groove on this year. Concentration? What’s that? Attention span? I think I’ve heard of it, but I’m pretty sure I don’t have one. Plus, there’s that pesky pandemic, which we can blame pretty much anything on.

So, yeah, I only finished twelve books in June. If this sounds like a lot, please keep in mind I usually read four to five books a week.

Spoiler alert! – I didn’t actually finish twelve books. I DNF’ed two books (How to Choose a Guy in 10 days and His Human Nanny). Normally, I don’t include books I DNF on Goodreads, but since I bought these books and made it past the free chapters, I decided to add them. Okay, fine! I’ll admit it! Adding them also made me feel better about my dismal June reading habits.

Spoiler alert #2 – As long as I’m being embarrassingly honest here, I should probably admit that two of the books are actually novellas. Like a Wolf with a Bone and My Kind of Town, both from Shelly Laurenston, are short reads in her Pride Series.

The good thing about this list? Those books I did manage to finish I enjoyed for the most part. Avery Flynn is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. And I never turn down a chance to read Pippa Grant and Cynthia Eden. I’m up and down on Aurora Rose Reynolds. Her stories seem to repeat themselves an awful lot, but I did enjoy Hooking Him.

Favorite book of the month? This is one I didn’t expect to enjoy but stayed up half the night reading – Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. I thought it was smart and witty and readable. I recommend it to anyone looking for a pandemic read.

How did your June reading month go?

    I was surprised to see that I only read 12 books in June also. Yes, let’s blame it on the pandemic. I read 20 books in April, though.

    I checked out your favourite book of the month, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, and have put a hold on it at my local library. There’s a huge waiting list so it will be a while before I get it.

    I read this in the early morning and thought about how little I’ve actually read during this time. I’ve started like three books, but haven’t been able to just sit and read through. This gave me so much motivation. I have my glass of wine right now and am about to sit this evening and just read this book by Kimberly Jones called “I’m Not Dying With You Tonight.” Thank you for the push/reminder! Hugs.
