Happy June everyone! I know I probably say this every month, but how is it June already? I feel like it was just January. But it’s June. Which means it’s time for another monthly reading list! I’m keeping this one very short because I really want to finish my May reading list. I got a bit busy last month, and didn’t get to everything I was planning on. I picked a few shorter reads I’ve been meaning to get to, and I think they’re going to make great summer reads!
In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire. I love this series! They’re such great, quick reads. I’m looking forward to this one because I hear it has a Goblin Market. And I think it might be the only one (so far) set in a logic – as opposed to chaos – world.
The Mermaid’s Voice Returns in This One by Amanda Lovelace. I never thought I’d fall in love with a poetry series, but Amanda Lovelace proved me wrong. I’ve really enjoyed the first two books in this series, and I’m excited for some feminist poetry.
Beowulf, translated by J. R. R. Tolkien. Little-known fact about the author of The Lord of the Rings: he was also a prominent medieval scholar. And, at one point, he translated Beowulf. No offence to Seamus Heaney, but, from what I’ve read of it, Tolkien’s translation is better. I think because he was also a fantasy author, he was able to do the story justice. I love Tolkien and Beowulf, so I think it’s time to finally read it in it’s entirety.
That’s it for my June reading list. I need to catch up on a few ARCs as well (I have quite a few that are being release in June or July). Hopefully it’s a great reading month!
What’s on your June TBR?
