June Wrap-Up

June didn’t go as well, reading-wise, as the previous months. I finished a total of 6 books, which doesn’t sound to bad, until you realize, that of those 5 books, 2 were cookbooks. Cookbooks are really quick to go through, so I’m not even sure if you should count them, but I do (because I really want to have read 5 books!). Then, I also finished an audio book. Meaning I only really read 2 books this month, and finished reading one that I started in May. Not really my best score. Actually, my worse score since I started keeping track. There was however a book that I started but then DNF’ed. I just couldn’t get through it.

Anyway, there must be times, where reading just isn’t a priority and obviously this was one of those months.

Here are three books I finished:

  1. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery – By far my favorite book this month! I loved Anne’s voice. You can find my review here.
  2. The Circle by Dave Eggers – I wasn’t very impressed by it, but I can imagine they might’ve made the movie a lot better. I haven’t seen the movie yet though, maybe it’s a bit mwah too.
  3. Jungs sind wie Kaugummi by Kerstin Gier – This was the audio book I listened to on the way to my parents. It was kinda funny, but definitely not one of her best works.
  4. Die Laufmasche by Kerstin Gier – Also not one of her best works. Funny, but a little predictable.

Seeing the three books I read lined up, it makes more sense why I didn’t have a good reading month. I just didn’t have a lot of great books to read after Anne of Green Gables. I even DNF’ed another one. The epiphanies one has while blogging, right?

I hope you’re reading month has been a bit better than mine. More books, better books and maybe both! What did you read this month?

Ps. I’m hoping to do a review of the (vegetarian) cookbook once I’ve tried some of the recipes.

  1. That edition of Anne of Green Gables is so pretty! I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my Classics TBR. And cookbooks totally count. (I’m a pescetarian, so I’m interested in your review!) Awesome post, and I hope July is going well for you reading wise and otherwise.

    I’m new to blogging and book reviewing, and I was wondering if you had any tips for newbie bloggers and book reviewers.

    If you have the time, please check out my blog @breenysbooks. I’d love any feedback. Have a wonderful day.

    1. I’d seen the book around before, but never thought of picking it up, because it just didn’t seem very exciting. Boy, was I wrong!
      A first review will be up in a week or so. (It’s written and scheduled).
      One tip I can give you is to look at lots of different blogs and see what you like and don’t like when reading them. Use this to make your blog and writing your own. I really get annoyed by gifs on blogs for example, so I don’t use them on mine.
      Have a great week!

  2. That Anne of Green Gables edition is stunning; I already have a copy but I’m thinking about buying that one as a gift for my friend since she hasn’t read the classic.

    I’m sorry to hear that the The Circle was ultimately disappointing. That was the chosen book my class was given to read when I was a freshman undergraduate; I never read it though since the synopsis did not really seem to be for me. I know it’s gotten popular again after the film was released though. >.<

    1. After the Netflix show I really (finally) had to read the book and what better to do that with than a gorgeous edition? My boyfriend got it for me after I had put it in the basket on Amazon, but hadn’t bought it yet. 🙂
