Stacking the Shelves: June

This month I’ve added a YA book – an unusual pick for me – with a fat black queer protagonist, a debut novella about sex and obsession, a thrilling sequel to one of my favourite May reads, and another debut about a feminist cult.

Mid-Year Reading Round-Up

Can you believe we’re in July already?! As we’re halfway through 2019, I’ve seen a lot of people doing ‘Mid-Year’ posts, mostly the ‘Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag’, created by ReadLikeWildfire and Earl Grey Books. I will be doing the tag sometime soon but first, I decided to check in with my reading goals. I want to see if I’m on track to achieve the targets I set myself at the beginning of the year, and also take a look at any trends that seem to have emerged so far! I haven’t included anything I’ve read the past week or so, so these stats are for exactly the first six months of the year: January 1st to June 30th.

I ended up reading some really great books, most of them ended up being four- or five-star reads. Let’s have a look at what I read!

Most of the books I added to my TBR this month are future releases, so I have time to cull my current pile before they come along! Here’s what made the cut in April.

April’s Monthly Round-Up

I thought I’d steam through books in April because I had so much time off but turns out I struggled to find time in the first couple of weeks! I spent four lovely days in Yorkshire with my family and managed to read a little in the evenings. After that, my mum came to stay with me in London and we were super busy seeing the sights so I didn’t get my butt in gear and buckle down with my books until the second week of April, but I quickly made up for lost time!
