June Reading Wrap Up

June turned out to be a great reading month for me! I read a total of eleven books, and definitely found some new favorites (you can see the list below – they’re the ones with five-star ratings, in case that wasn’t clear). I’m also really proud of myself for reading pretty diversely this month; I read a classic novella, a nonfiction classic, two thrillers, a high fantasy novel, a (semi-)contemporary bestseller, an adult fantasy retelling, a young adult dystopian, a comic, a graphic memoir, and a new young adult historical (magical realism) novel. So, it was good.

Let me know what the best book you read in June is! And keep reading to see what books I read this month.
