Time for the scariest post of the month, haha. Now that we’ve looked back at June to see what new books we added to our shelves and what we’ve read, it’s time to look back at last year. Did we actually read the books we added to our shelves in June 2022? Keep on reading to find out in this month’s Looking Back at Our Bookhauls!
I’m always afraid to look at our bookhauls to see how I’ve done. In June 2022, I added 7 books to my shelves. Let’s see how many I’ve actually read.
Gild, Glint & Gleam – Raven Kennedy
Read, Currently Reading, TBR
The Plated Prisoner series is still one I keep seeing everywhere. The fourth book got pushed back a bit, so I slowed down my reading so I don’t have to wait as long. I read Gild, the first book in this King Midas retelling, and ended up loving it so much more than expected. A lot of people say they didn’t care for Gild, but they get better. I’m working on Glint now and I’m still really enjoying the story. I’ve also seen some stunning fanart.
The Confidence of Wildflowers & The Resurrection of Wildflowers – Micalea Smeltzer
I actually read this duet last month and I should’ve read it sooner!! These books were so addicting. Salem & Thayer don’t have the most typical love story and it’s very heartbreaking at times. I couldn’t put them down and I even loved that we got Thayer’s POV in The Resurrection of Wildflowers. While I do think the second book could’ve been cut down a lot and turned into an epilogue, I still loved every minute of it. I now really want to read more by this author.
The New Girl – Jesse Q. Sutanto
I loved Dial A for Aunties and Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers, so I thought I would also love a YA thriller by this author as well. Unfortunately, I was wrong. The beginning of The New Girls started off really well and had me hooked. Things got a bit dramatic (I mean I know it’s high school, but still) and the ending was kind of predictable in a way?
Meet Me in the Middle – Alex Light
So I haven’t read Meet Me in the Middle yet, but it’s still a book I’m interested in. This book deals with the aftermath of something tragic and grief. I guess I just wasn’t in the mood for that when Meet Me in the Middle released. I will read this one though.
Read: 4/7 – 57.1%
Currently Reading: 1/7 – 14.3%
TBR: 2/7 – 28.6%
June 2022 was another month with no new books for me! I did start sharing my Audible books in July so next month will be a bit more exciting in my section haha.
So that’s our Looking Back at Our Bookhauls for this month! Not that many unread books for once. Are we slowly getting on top of our TBR’s? How is your TBR doing? Let us know in the comments.
