Wrap Up| June 2020

Welcome to my June Wrap Up! I had another lovely month of reading. I read six books and three graphic novels. I did enjoy most of what I read in June, but a few also let me down.

1. Heartstopper (Volume one to three) by Alice Oseman

Rating: 4/5 stars

Goodreads Synopsis: Charlie Spring is in Year 10 at Truham Grammar School for Boys. The past year hasn’t been too great, but at least he’s not being bullied anymore. Nick Nelson is in Year 11 and on the school rugby team. He’s heard a little about Charlie – the kid who was outed last year and bullied for a few months – but he’s never had the opportunity to talk to him.
They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and sometimes good things are waiting just around the corner…

Review

Book Review: Woven in Moonlight by Isabel Ibañez

Hello everyone! I hope you’re doing well!

Today, I have a review of Woven in Moonlight by Isabel Ibañez. I was so excited to read this book when I heard about it and it didn’t disappoint. It sounded like it would be a different fantasy read, which it was and I really did enjoy it.

Goodreads Synopsis: A lush tapestry of magic, romance, and revolución, drawing inspiration from Bolivian politics and history.

Ximena is the decoy Condesa, a stand-in for the last remaining Illustrian royal. Her people lost everything when the usurper, Atoc, used an Continue reading “Book Review: Woven in Moonlight by Isabel Ibañez”

Recommending Books to Anne With an E Characters

Hi everyone!

It’s no secret that I absolutely love the TV show, Anne With an E (and I’m still holding out hope for its renewal), and I’ve been wanting to write a post about it for ages. I thought a post recommending books to loved characters from the show would be perfect (and hopefully, you also find some books to read). Anne of Green Gables means a lot to me, when I was a child I can remember watching the films in my Granny’s house, and loving them. I started the show, a few years ago, with no expectations, but I was absolutely hooked. It became one of my favourite shows, and if you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend that you give it a watch.

Now, let’s recommend some books! Continue reading “Recommending Books to Anne With an E Characters”

Panemathon TBR

Welcome to my overly ambitious TBR pile for the month of June as I’m participating in Panemathon! It is a wonderful readathon and it is so accessible. You can really make it suit you and your reading habits.

As you can see however, I am not making this easy this easy for myself! You see, Panemathon is a competition, just like The Hunger Games. You sign up (closes May 31st!) to the district of your choice and earn points for your district. I’ll be representing District 8 and I highly encourage you to sign up for 8 too!

I’ll leave a link at the end of the post where you can find more information about how Panemathon works.
