June Books

 I had a really good month with 47 books. Part of that number was helped by the fact that I decided to clear out my reading list by reading some of my shorter books. In addition to reading 11 graphic novels this month, 13 of my books were under 300 pages (and 2 of those were even under 100 pages). I also finished several series I started years ago (IrredeemableRed QueenPrincess Jellyfish, and Assassination Classroom). My binge of The Dragonian series which started right at the end of May also ended in June. It was a productive reading month.

June 2018 Round - Up

Hello everyone.

I hope it was a good month for everyone, so far for me it was even though I was in a bit of a reading slump, still am but I'm slowly getting out of it... I think. Also I'm writing this post almost a week early since I have some stuff coming up and not sure if I will be able to post in  time, so I figured I get it done now ( June 25th) .

On a happy note, tomorrow (June 26th, 2018) will be the release of Iron and Magic  (The Iron Covenant)  by Ilona Andrews, a new series in the Kate Daniels world surrounding Hugh d’Ambray and Elara Harper. I'm super excited about this book and hear only good tings about it, I will however wait for my paperback before I read it ;)



I'm currently reading The Prophecy, the fourth and final book in the Titan Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. So far I'm really enjoying but I'm sad to say there are a few editing mistakes, that can be confusing sometimes. But overall I enjoy it and I really missed Seth, Josie and friends :)


The Prophecy (A Titan Novel) (Volume 4)


After that I think I be going back to The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon,the second book in The Bone Season Series. It is still very dense but great universe but I think this one is a lot easier to read now that I understand the world more. I just wish I wouldn't have waited so long between the books.


The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)

I don't have any real goals for July, other than just continuing to read some of my review copies for the most part. I've been switching between ARC and books on my TBR and that seems to be working fine, I might keep that up and for every review copy I read I will read a book of my TBR.

  Oh there will be a great new giveaway coming soon. Keep your eyes open for it :)

Kiersten White's Bright We Burn the third book in the The Conqueror's Saga will be released July 10.2018, I'm really looking forward to it and that is one book I must get in July for sure.



Now to my June reads,as always you will find the buy links in the review that are linked .

If you live in the US have a great 4th of July

Have a great July and Happy Reading!


Ain’t She a Peach? by Molly Harper



An Atlanta ex-cop comes to sleepy Lake Sackett, Georgia, seeking peace and quiet—but he hasn’t bargained on falling for Frankie, the cutest coroner he’s ever met.

Frankie McCready talks to dead people. Not like a ghost whisperer or anything—but it seems rude to embalm them and not at least say hello.

Fortunately, at the McCready Family Funeral Home & Bait Shop, Frankie’s eccentricities fit right in. Lake Sackett’s embalmer and county coroner, Frankie’s goth styling and passion for nerd culture mean she’s not your typical Southern girl, but the McCreadys are hardly your typical Southern family. Led by Great-Aunt Tootie, the gambling, boozing, dog-collecting matriarch of the family, everyone looks out for one another—which usually means getting up in everyone else’s business.

Maybe that’s why Frankie is so fascinated by new sheriff Eric Linden…a recent transplant from Atlanta, he sees a homicide in every hunting accident or boat crash, which seems a little paranoid for this sleepy tourist town. What’s he so worried about? And what kind of cop can get a job with the Atlanta PD but can’t stand to look at a dead body?

Frankie has other questions that need answering first—namely, who’s behind the recent break-in attempts at the funeral home, and how can she stop them? This one really does seem like a job for the sheriff—and as Frankie and Eric do their best Scooby-Doo impressions to catch their man, they get closer to spilling some secrets they thought were buried forever.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli


Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.



4-4 ½★ 



Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco



Following the grief and horror of her discovery of Jack the Ripper’s true identity, Audrey Rose Wadsworth has no choice but to flee London and its memories. Together with the arrogant yet charming Thomas Cresswell, she journeys to the dark heart of Romania, home to one of Europe’s best schools of forensic medicine…and to another notorious killer, Vlad the Impaler, whose thirst for blood became legend.

But her life’s dream is soon tainted by blood-soaked discoveries in the halls of the school’s forbidding castle, and Audrey Rose is compelled to investigate the strangely familiar murders. What she finds brings all her terrifying fears to life once again.





The Valiant by Lesley Livingston


Fallon is the daughter of a proud Celtic king, the sister of the legendary warrior Sorcha, and the sworn enemy of Julius Caesar.

When Fallon was a child, Caesar’s armies invaded her homeland, and her beloved sister was killed in battle.

Now, on the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Fallon is eager to follow in her sister’s footsteps and earn her place in the fearsome Cantii war band. She never gets the chance.

Fallon is captured and sold to an elite training school for female gladiators—owned by none other than Julius Caesar. In a cruel twist of fate, the man who destroyed Fallon’s family might be her only hope of survival.

Now Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries and deadly fights—in and out of the arena. And perhaps the most dangerous threat of all: her forbidden yet irresistible feelings for Cai, a young Roman soldier.





The Night Ferry by Lotte & Soren Hammer



Sixteen children and four adults are killed in a devastating boat crash in Copenhagen. Detective Chief Superintendent Konrad Simonsen is called in, only to discover that this was no accident and that one of the passengers has a very personal connection to the homicide team.

Reeling from this revelation and not knowing who to trust, Simonsen follows a trail that eventually leads him to Bosnia and a network of criminal misconduct. All evidence points towards one shady figure: a high-ranking army specialist with a suspicious past. But the more Simonsen digs, the further the truth slips from his grasp.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-06-15 15:10
The Walker Papers Series by C.E. Murphy Comes to an End


Originally published at midureads.wordpress.com on June 15, 2018.


I started reading this series back in 2012. Now that I have finished it, I am going to miss reading about Joanne’s road to self-discovery and some amazing male characters — who didn’t take over her story or act like assholes.
Above is an infographic on why I loved this series the way I did!
