What I Read in June 2021

Before I share the books that I read and what is in my to-be-read pile, I wanted to share that the Salt Lake City Literary League Book Club is officially meeting in person. It was so great to finally get together to discuss last month’s book. If you live in Salt Lake City and want to join the July book club comment below or send me an email. We are reading The Ugly Cry by Danielle Henderson. And if you live elsewhere click here to find a book club near you. 

What I Read in June

Malibu Rising: I got this on the day it was released and had to dive right in. Taylor Jenkins did not disappoint, and yes I do want to move to Malibu and surf now. I loved that this book took place over a 24-hour period too. The characters were all so well written and there is some character crossover from other books she has written. 

The Ghosts We Keep: this was our May book club pick and I am not going to lie … it was extremely sad. This book follows Liam who lost their brother in a tragic accident and follows them and their family as they navigate the grieving process. This book was extremely well written and does a great job of showing what grief looks like. It also brought up some great conversations and questions in my book club so if you can read this one with a friend I highly recommend it. 

The Push: I saw Grace Atwood from The Stripe share about this thriller and immediately added to my cart without even reading the summary. And whoa is all I can say. If you like psychological thrillers, then you will love this book. Trigger warning about postpartum anxiety and psychosis and motherhood. I was literally on the edge of my seat the entire book and even the final sentence just completely threw me for a loop.

Instead of doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing, I got intentional. I started asking “what if” all the time and I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to do things at the perfect time or the right way. Instead I took a little leap here and another there to create a life I love.
