It feels like July is already slipping away because we started the month off with a long weekend, which is why this blog post is going up a little bit later than usual. June was such a good reading month for me. I feel like I was playing “catch up” on a few books and I finally finished them!
So let’s talk about this month’s books! I finished 5 books and I really liked a lot of them. Get your Amazon cart and library holds ready for this list.
Everything I Read in June 2022
The Story of Jane: The Legendary Underground Abortion Service: I downloaded this book when the news broke about the leaked Roe V. Wade draft. This book is a very hard read, but also one that I highly recommend. It took me close to 2-months to finish because I wanted to be able to really understand everything rather than just glazing over certain parts. One powerful message I took away from this book was that you don’t need to be extraordinary to make change, and that average people coming together is what makes a difference. There are a lot more books to read on the topic of abortion healthcare and the women’s movement. The next couple that I am adding to my list is this one and this one.
Rivals: Katherine McGee did it again! I was really looking forward to reading this third addition to the American Royals series and I loved it. This book really sucks me into a different world and I can’t help but become obsessed with all of the different characters. One thing McGee continues to do well is make me care about everyone in the book, not just one storyline. If you haven’t read this series yet, start here.
Regretting You: I had been saving this book for a rainy day or necessary distraction and I am so glad I did. As always Colleen Hoover delivered a beautiful book and this one follows a mother-daughter relationship that is anything but easy-going. There is of course tragedy and love wrapped up in this book. Bring your tissues.
Unicorn Space: you may know this author from her book Fair Play, but this is my first dive into one of her books and it was excellent. This book is all about making time for your passions and how important that is even when you have a job, kids to take care of, relationships to maintain, etc. If you have been feeling uninspired or just generally stuck, this is a great book to pick up.
All the Things We Don’t Talk About: this book follows Morgan, a teenager who is raised by their neurodivergent father and is haunted by their absent mother, Zoe. When Zoe makes a reappearance in Morgan’s life things come crashing down. Overall I enjoyed this book, but I had a hard time connecting with all of the characters so it took me a little bit of effort to get into it.
This month is my birthday month so I will be filling it with a whole lot of good books that I can’t wait to share with you next month!
