I’ve said this in each of the past couple of round up posts. But this past month? Don’t really have any recollection of it. Too much happened and too little sleep was had. So as for what my 2019 reading updates June will contain? I honestly don’t know myself. Promising – I know 🙂

What I thought

Well, nothing, really. For at least half of these – I think. Because I had to read them because my students read them and I’m the kind of person that then needs to read them myself. That’s all the ones without an author mentioned, by the way.

But in all honesty, there’s only a couple here that I have an actual opinion on beyond the review I wrote on them. On the one hand, there’s Isolde, which is a translation of a book that was published by a Russian author a while back. And it’s a very Russian book. Like, stereotypes-Russian. There’s a review coming later this year, but for now: it left me sincerely mind-f***ed.

The other ones? Fanfiction. Apparently it’s a thing now that, whenever life gets overwhelming? And, you know, all my books are packed up – because moving. Well, I go back to old favourites in the form of fanfiction. Honestly, The Commoner’s Guide to Bedding a Royal is GREAT.

Anyways, that’s what I read this past month. While it’s kind of a lot of books? June hasn’t really been the greatest in terms of reading enjoyment. However. That should improve. I have, as of the day of me writing this, exactly 7 days left of working. And then I get to relax for a while. I mean. I’m looking forward to it. A lot. So here’s to July being a better reading month than the last one has been!

What have you been reading lately? Be sure to let me know below!
