I’m a couple days late on this but here is what I’m currently planning to read in the month of June. I’m very much a mood reader so my TBR is subject to change – actually it’s very likely to change!
Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab (not pictured above) – This is getting released on June 11, so I don’t have a copy to show yet but I’m really excited for it. I will 100% be reading this one. It’s one of my most-anticipated.
A Darker Shade of Magic by Victor Schwab – I’ve been meaning to start this series for what seems like forever . My YA bookclub, Life & Lit, voted and this book won so I’ll 100% be reading this one. Feel free to come join us – we have lots of fun in the group! Almost 400 members – VERY active.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – This is another series that I have been wanting to read for awhile. The Goodreads group that I co-run voted for this one. The group can be found on Goodreads at Forgotten YA Gems – again another fun group! Almost 600 members.
Frogkisser by Garth Nix – This will actually be my first Nix book and I’m really excited about it. It’s a middle-grade retelling of The Frog Prince.
Geekerella by Ashley Poston – I’m not normally a huge light contemporary reader but I’m broadening my horizons this year and giving it more of a chance. This book looks adorable! Strangely enough, it’s only 320 pages but feels like it weighs 20lbs. You might want to keep that in mind when buying this one if you get sore wrists easy. I am not expecting it to be very comfortable.
House of Furies by Madeline Roux – I am almost finished this one as I’m typing up this TBR. I was really excited to see she was writing a gothic horror YA novel. Look out for that review coming soon!
The Upside of the Unrequited by Becky Abertalli – I got this in my Owlcrate box back in April. Looks cute and has LGBT+ representation. I’m not 100% sure what representation exactly because I try to go into a lot of my books blind but I’ve heard good things overall.
Eliza and Her Monster by Francesca Zappia – Another lighter contemporary. The only thing I know about this book is that the protagonist is a comic book writer and she suffers from mental illness. I believe it’s anxiety but don’t quote me on that. I’m hoping the representation in here will be good. Looks adorable and I’m obsessed with the cover!
Girl Mans Up by M.E. Girard – I actually had never heard of this one until recently. Chapters/Indigo (Canadian bookstore) was having a 50% off sale on realistic contemporary books. This is another LGBT+ novel. It features a young, lesbian from Canada who is struggling fitting in because of the way she appears. Sounds fantastic, again I really hope the representation is solid here.
That’s all I have planned this month. Lots of them could change and if I have a good reading month than several more will be added. If you have any recommendations or have read any of these books let me know!
