It’s the first of the month, so time for our bookhaul! How did we do in June? Did we add a lot of new books to our shelves? Or were we good? Keep on reading to find out in our June bookhaul!
So I ended up adding more books to my shelves in June than I planned. It didn’t help that I visited a bookstore three times during the month (including a new pretty one I visited for the first time). I added 14 new books to my shelves, but I also read that many physical books, so while my physical TBR didn’t get any smaller, it didn’t get bigger either, haha. Let’s see what I got!
Funny You Should Ask – Elissa Sussman
Right before the newest book by this author, Once More with Feeling, released I received an eARC. Funny You Should Ask has nothing to do with this book, but I kind of want to read this before diving into Once More with Feeling. A journalist interviews a Hollywood heartthrob and ten years later a reunion interview is scheduled. I have no clue what to expect, but I’m excited to pick it up.
The Fiancee Farce – Alexandria Bellefleur
The Fiancee Farce is a book I read an eARC of before it released and I absolutely loved it! I couldn’t find this US cover anywhere, but my boyfriend suggested a bookstore where he found the US cover of another book and it was there. So I decided I needed this book on my shelf. Fake dating is my favorite trope and this book does it well!
Love, Theoretically – Ali Hazelwood
So far I’ve loved Ali Hazelwood’s books. They seem to have the same formula, but I don’t love them any less. Love, Theoretically is the newest one and I’m hoping to read soon. Our main character earns extra money by offering her services as a fake girlfriend. This is going to be interesting!
Alone with You in the Ether – Olivie Blake
So far I’ve only read The Atlas Six by this author and now own all of the books she’s published so far. haha. Alone with You in the Ether is one I had in my hands every time I visited the bookstore and I finally decided it was time to take it home. This isn’t a typical love story and the reviews I’ve read say it’s emotional. Sounds like my kind of book!
Unfortunately Yours – Tessa Bailey
Tessa Bailey’s books tend to be hit or miss for me, but I ended up really enjoying Secretly Yours. So of course I needed Unfortunately Yours to not only finish the duology, but to enjoy one of my favorite tropes marriage of convenience. I’ll actually be finishing this book when I’m done writing this post. I’m enjoying it just a little more than the first book.
The Night in Question – Kathleen Glasgow & Liz Lawson
After loving The Agathas I ordered The Night in Question (even though I have an eARC). I’ve been really in the mood to read physical books, so I wanted to make it just a little easier to pick this one up. I’m excited to see what mystery these two solve this time.
One Dark Window – Rachel Gillig
One Dark Window was a book I’ve seen quite a bit on bookstagram and booktube and the reviews have all been positive. My Discord book club had this as a weekly read and I decided to join. This book was one wild ride and I loved it! I’m anxiously awaiting the sequel.
Royally Not Ready – Meghan Quinn
Meghan Quinn is a go to author for me when I want an amazing romance and some laughs (even though her books do deal with more serious things as well). I don’t own any physically though and with the release of the book after Royally Not Ready I decided to make this my first physical Meghan Quinn book. I’ve heard amazing things about it, so I want to be able to annotate this one.
The Grimoire of Grave Fates – Edited by Hanna Alkaf & Margaret Owen
I just have to say how happy I am that The Grimoire of Grave Fates has a floppy paperback edition. That really makes my heart happy. This fantasy murder mystery was written by 18 authors and sounds really good. I’m curious to see how these 18 authors brought everything together to make it one story.
Flawless – Elsie Silver
Flawless is a book I’ve seen everywhere, as well as all of the books in the series that have followed so far. I haven’t picked them up yet, but when I saw this new cover I had to have it. People on the cover are just something I don’t care for. Cowboy romances are new to me and I’m excited Flawless will be my first one.
Ink Blood Sister Scribe – Emma Törzs
Ink Blood Sister Scribe had me sold when I read in the synopsis that there is a library filled with magical books that have to be guarded by two estranged sisters. I love magical stories that involve books in any way.
Shanghai Immortal – A.Y. Chao
At first this really was a cover buy, but I’m happy to say I actually bought this after reading the synopsis and some positive reviews. I feel like this is going to be a great fantasy adventure.
The Only One Left – Riley Sager
Riley Sager seems to be hit or miss for a lot of people. The first book I read I didn’t care for, but I have a feeling that The Only One Left could be one that does work out for me. It does seem like a good book to read in the summer.
Her Majesty’s Royal Coven – Juno Dawson
Her Majesty’s Royal Coven is another book I’ve had in my hands a few time when at the bookstore, but didn’t end up getting. This is a book about a group of childhood friends who just happen to be witches. When I was at the cash register the employee that was helping me said she was currently reading the second book and that this book was amazing even if the ending was shocking. I’m curious!
I once again didn’t get any nee physical books. Work is super busy this month (do I just repeat this all year until summer break? Haha) and I’ve mostly been reading through audiobooks. I would like to get myself some books this summer but it is also time to first get through some more of my TBR…..
Tower of Dawn & Kingdom of Ash – Sarah J. Maas
The end of my Throne of Glass reread is very near. This month I got the last two books in the series. I’m currently listening to Kingdom of Ash and I have to admit I’m scared to continue. The most heartbreaking moment ever is very close now and I’m dreading reliving that scene. I love listening to these audiobooks but I have been crying a lot haha.
So that’s our June bookhaul! Have you read any of these? Or have you added any books to your shelves everyone needs to know about? Let us know in the comments! We’d love to hear from you.
