June 2019 TBR

Ever hopeful that I am, I’m making yet another list of books I hope to read this month. Books that have sat on my coffee table, in the lounge, staring up at me not quite pleading, but almost! Yes, I know, how very whimsical of me. But you know what I mean. I’ve had a weird couple of reading months in which, well, I’ve bombed out. Slump? Ennui? I have no idea. I’m either hitting a brick wall, or the books I’ve picked and read are just not grabbing me, or I’m not in the right head/reading space at the moment.

Anyway hoped for reads in June are:

  • THE KINGDOM OF THE BLIND by Louise Penny — Tried, tested, and always true to her vision. I can count on Penny to deliver me out of my reading slump.
  • AND FIRE CAME DOWN by Emma Viskic — This is the sequel to Resurrection Bay, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Hoping this one woos me too.
  • DESCENDANT OF THE CRANE by Joan He — I had hoped to read this last month, but after being so disappointed with The Candle and the Flame, I kind of put off reading this one. But that cover keeps beckoning me.
  • THE GOLDEN TRESSES OF THE DEAD by Alan Bradley — I think I’ve kept putting off reading this one (I’ve carried it over for at least 2 months now) because it’s the last Flavia de Luce mystery, ever! I think June is a good month to read it, right?
  • US AGAINST YOU by Fredrik Backman — Another carry over from previous months I just haven’t picked up.

And you, what do you have lined up for June?

      Oh, I believe you. It’s because of you that I started buying and reading Backman. I loved Ove and I’m sure I’ll love this one too. I think I need Bear Town as well … 😀

  2. Here’s hoping you get to this! Enjoy💜

      Oh, I hope so too, Jonetta! I’m beginning to wonder if I should take an extended break and come back at it, on my summer holidays!

      That’s the thing with books, like a lot of entertainment, it can be all about mood, right? Funny how we can love an author, want to read this or that, but if we’re not in the right mood, it’s all for naught! 😉

      Hope you enjoy your reads too.
