Monthly Wrap-Up: June Wrap-Up and the Halfway Point

We’ve reached the halfway point! How??


It’s crazy to think that 2022 is halfway over. It doesn’t quite feel like it. I’m planning a few midyear posts to go up in the next month or so, so watch out for those!


As per usual, we’ll start with the books I read this month:

–        The Second Death of Edie and Violet Bond by Amanda Glaze

–        My Body Created a Human: A Love Story by Emma Ahlqvist

–        The Drowning Sea by Sarah Stewart Taylor

–        One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle

–        Sweater by Emily Hepditch

–        The Complete Elfquest Vol. 2 by Wendy Pini and Richard Pini

–        Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

–        Forging Silver into Stars by Brigid Kemmerer

–        Blood Atonement by S.M. Freedman

–        It’s All in How You Fall by Sarah Henning

–        The Ghosts of Paris by Tara Moss

Eleven is a pretty decent number for me. I tried so hard to read another few books in the last three days of the month, but I wasn’t feeling it and I had too many other things to do to prepare for July (and getting ahead in the coming months). So, as part of my wrap-up, I’ll let you know how far I got in those other novels:

–        Doctor Glass by Louise Worthington – 37%

–        The Many Daughters of Afong Moy by Jamie Ford – 13%

–        Dream On by Angie Hockman – 18%

I’m aiming to finish all of these very soon.

My favourite book from June was One Italian Summer. I enjoyed it the most, have the least negative things to say about it, and it surprised me more than anything else. The mother-daughter relationship that was explored in this novel is unlike any I’ve read about before and it got me on such a deep emotional level, both as a daughter and someone who wants to be a good mom to my future children. I highly recommend reading it or checking out my full review if you aren’t sure!

I don’t have a least favourite book from this month. I enjoyed every one of the novels that I picked up on some level.

I also don’t have much of a novel update. I got another three chapters down, but I switched my focus to planning the next four months of my blog reading/reviews. I want to successfully get ahead in that so that I can write and do some other things without the added stress of feeling like I’m constantly falling behind. So, as always, I’m hoping to do better next month!
