June Wrap-Up: The Last Half of the Month Sped by me!

Hey bookworms! Where is my summer going?? I actually want this summer to take it’s time, but if this week is any indication I doubt it will. Fall will be my last semester and that fact is a bit scary! Any who no more scary talk about that future, but let’s reminisce about the past as in what I read in June. In June I read a total of 14 books (which is way more than I thought)!: DNFed 2 books, read 4 graphic novels, 5.5 audio books, 1 hard copy book, and 1.5 ebooks! So let’s talk about the books going in the order of what was read first.

June Wrap-Up

1. Finding My Prince Charming by J.S. Cooper

Finding my Prince Charming

This was my DNF and it was because I couldn’t take it! I gave it a 1 star if I Goodreads would’ve let me give it a lower rating I would have. For more reasons why I didn’t finish this book I talked about it in The Nintendo Book Tag.

2. The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern

The Book of Tomorrow

My first audio book of the month! Honestly by the middle of this book I realized Cecelia Ahern had officially become one of my favorite authors. The sense of mystery and magical realism of this book had sucked me in! This book was a 5 out of 5 stars.

3. We were Liars by E. Lockhart

I didn’t love this book, but I really liked it! I felt such a nostalgia reading an E. Lockhart book again after so long. Confession that I’ve only read one of her books, but it helped me when I was younger. The mystery in this book could’ve been a little stronger and the reveal wasn’t my favorite hence the 4 out of 5 stars for me!

4. Amulet Volume 1 by Kazu Kibuishi

Amulet Vol 1

Honestly isn’t my favorite graphic novel read, but I can see why it is meant for a younger audience. I think it’s perfect for a middle grade read to keep their attention. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars, but I don’t think I will continue with the series plus library graphic novels worry me.

5. Enthralled by a lot of authors

This was my second DNF. Now don’t get me wrong I really loved  the two stories I read! I want to pick it up another day, but I am was not in a collection mood.

6. If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern

If You Could See Me Now

Honestly I adored this and would kill for a hard copy of this book. The audio book was amazing and loved the narrators. I definitely recommend it for a first listen. I adore this and it is 5 out 5 stars for me and it is my second favorite Ahern book.

7.  Ms Marvel Volume 1 by G. Willow Wilson (author) and Adrian Alphona (artist)

Ms Marvel Vol 1

This was a good read a 4 out of 5 for me. I definitely loved her family and her explaining the need to fit in. This had very good character development

8. Vampire Academy The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead (Author), Emma Vieceli (Illustrator), Leigh Dragoon (Adapter)

Vampire Academy Graphic Novel

Adore it! Talked about it in my last Top Ten Tuesday so if you want to know it was a 5 out of 5 stars =)

9. A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

A Game of Thrones

Finally finished my reread and it was a 5 out of 5 stars. Can’t wait to get deeper into book 2

10. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

The Princess Diaries

My third audio book and my first time to the series! I loved that Anne Hathaway narrated this book! It was a 4 out of 5 for me and a good start for me!

11. Princess in the Spotlight by Meg Cabot

Princess in the Spotlight

I loved this one still narrated by Anne Hathaway. 5 out of 5 stars. You really find out who the characters are and Mia becomes more of herself as a character.

12. Princess in Love by Meg Cabot

Princess in Love

The last one narrated by Anne Hathaway and was super cute! Another 5 out of 5 stars for me!

13. Echoes of Us by Kat Zhang

Echo of Us

A great wrap-up for this trilogy. This is the read that I half read and half listened to. I really loved both aspects the reader was one of my favorites. I am sad to see it end, but I really loved the concept of this series and definitely recommend it for new sci-fi ish readers. 5 out of 5 stars

14. Pandemonium by Chris Wooding and Cassandra Diaz

0-439-87759-8

This was a really good read and I gushed about it in Day 7 of my challenge post. It was definitely my favorite read of the month. 5 out of 5 stars!

So that is what I read for this month bookworms! Hope you don’t mind, but my July TBR will be a separate post tomorrow. Have you read any of these? Let me know your opinions and what you read for the month of June either by comment or link! Happy reading!
