JUNE MONTHLY WRAP UP

Hi everyone!

I’ve been a very lazy person so this wrap-up post is kind of delayed but oh well. Better late than never!

LOTS of stuff happened last month! June is Pride month, as you all know, hence one of my favorite months. It doesn’t hurt that I didn’t have to go to school for that whole month either.

So let’s go over everything (probably just 50% thanks to my memory) that happened in June!

BOOKS I READ

 

So in the month of June I read a good amount of 10 books! I’m pretty satisfied with this since I had loads of other stuff to do in the holidays.

I had taken part in two readathons- Pride Readathon organised by one of my good friends Saimon along with Dhruv and the Books n Beyond readathon.

The Pride Readathon was a month-long event where we were supposed to read as many diverse and LGBTQ+ books as we could. You know me, I can never resist LGBTQ books, hehe.

I read 5 books(one overlapping with the other readathon) for this readathon and these were:

Simon was a re-read because what better way to start Pride Month! This book never really fails. And I finally managed to review Simon vs semi-coherently. Check out my review in this collab post with my friends over at BlueMoonArchives!

This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year and I really liked it! The Simon and Bram moments were to die for and Leah was pretty relatable but there were a couple of issues which is why I couldn’t give it a full star rating.

Loved this book so much even though it was kind of sad and depressing? Adam Silvera totally killed me with that plot twist I am so SHOOK. HUGE TRIGGER WARNING FOR SELF-HARM, DEPRESSION, BULLYING and HOMOPHPOBIA.

I had huge expectations from this one and while the asexual and biromantic rep was great I wasn’t very happy with the plot and other stuff that was happening…

The BnB Readathon had three prompts and I read the following books for it:

This book was pretty diverse and some great representations of anxiety and bisexuality were there but somehow the magic was missing.
3.5/5

This book is one of my best reads of the year so far! Everything was just so fantastic- the characters, plot line, world building WOW, You have got to read it right now!

Another of my most anticipated reads that lived up to the mark! Although it was rather slow paced the ending totally made up for it and glued all the pieces together and it was all so beautiful in the end I totally did not cry!

Beside these I also read The Hate U GiveΒ for the Banned Book Club which I reviewed in my post hereΒ , The Sun and Her Flowers which I did not like at all and gave 2/5 stars. I guess Rupi Kaur isn’t for me. I also ended up DNFing Snow Blind despite my numerous attempts to get on board with the author’s writing style. It just didn’t work for me.

BOOK HAULS

 

I didn’t really haul many books this month. I think I just bought Landline and Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell who is one of my all-time favourite authors. I’m really intent on collecting all her books and I’ve got like 4 already so yaay!

 

Taking about Rainbow Rowell…

 

SHE ANNOUNCED THE SEQUEL OF CARRY ON AND I AM SO FREAKING HAPPY I HAVEN’T STOPPED FLAILING EVER SINCE!!! IT’S CALLED WAYWARD SONS AND OMG I JUST CAN’T WAIT!

TWO THOUSAND TWENTY

 

How am I supposed to survive till then?!?!

Okay so you guys probably don’t want to hear me rant so I’ll sum up the rest of the stuff in bullet points cause I’m obsessed.

  • I was running out of space for my books so we cleared some space for a shelf in another cupboard yaaay!
  • I went to a really nice vacation to Andaman islands and there are loads of pictures on my twitter if you want to see!
  • I have 100+ lovely WordPress followers, 200+ if you count the mail subscribers and I am so thankful you guys!
  • I am dying under projects and my TBR pile bye bye world, I shall miss you.
  • These wrap up posts are all over the place and so messy but I somehow like it?
  • SOMEONE KIDNAP ME I DON’T WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL NOW *sobs*

 

I think that’s it? It was one hell of a month and I am currently buried deep under all the posts, specifically tags I am supposed to be writing 😦 Next few months may be rather hectic because my exams are coming up soon so we’ll see how that works out.

 

How was your month? Did you read any of the books that I did? Are you looking forward to Wayward Sons??? Did you do anything special for Pride Month? Talk to me about it all in the comments below πŸ™‚

    Also it’s okay if you don’t like Rupi Kaur, I don’t like her either and have strong opinions about her style of “poetry”.
    Also good luck with school ahh do glad mine is over!

    It seems like you had a great reading month, so many amazing, diverse books! Glad you enjoyed Simon, Children of Blood and Bone and More Happy Than Not, I can't wait to read the latter two as well.

    • Yes, she is a wonderful writer! Carry On is slightly underrated which I don’t get at all.

      Yup, it was really fun reading so many different books, and most of them were great! COBAB and More Happy Than Not are definitely worth the hype! Huopeyou get to them soon πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ

    • YESSS! Such a gem πŸ’™
      Ahh don’t be scared. The characters are great, the plot felt a little meh to me? I think it’s just me. Plus I got to know a lot about asexuality and birimance and that was totally worth it 😁

  5. So cool that you got to do so many readathons πŸ™‚ they are also so fun. I am sad that I won’t really be able to participate in the Indian readathon ;_; and unexpected family trip has come up. I’m glad I at least read the Punjabi Widows early! So I *sort of* *sort of* participated in advance xD

    Congrats on your followers πŸ™‚ super happy for you.

    I hope July is a great reading month, as well as a good month all together πŸ™‚
