I read 9 books in June, which isn’t bad considering that I had a huge workload this month.
I’ve had a break from my own writing this month, so I’ve read some middle-grade books instead: ‘The Secret Detectives’, ‘A Glasshouse of Stars’ and ‘Between Sea and Sky’. I enjoyed all of them!
I’ve read a couple of ARCs from Netgalley. ‘Outbreak’ – a near-future novel set just after the covid pandemic – and ‘The Ash Museum’, which is a wonderful multi-generational YA novel set in three continents.
I’ve been wanting to read more by Daphne du Maurier ever since reading ‘Rebecca’, and finally listened to an audiobook of ‘Jamaica Inn’ this month which very much reminded me of the works of Thomas Hardy. I also read ‘Holy Island’ by LJ Ross (but wasn’t very keen on that one!) and a detective thriller set in Tokyo: ‘Unknown Male’.
Have a great month of reading, everyone! 📚
I’ve put links to my reviews under the relevant covers. If you click on the covers, you’ll get a link to Amazon if you wish to buy your own copy – I get a small commission if you use my link, at no extra cost to yourself 😉
One thought on “What I’ve been reading: June 2021”
Yes, Jamaica Inn does have Hardyesque elements, doesn’t it – although I think far more violent and frightening than any of Hardy’s works. But the landscape and the use of landscape is very familiar. And well done for reading that many books in a busy month, too!
