Welcome to my June Wrap Up. I didn't have a great reading month, finishing 5 books (4 books off my TBR). I also received 4 ARC's this month, and I continued my new goal of reading 1 Shakespeare play and 10 Shakespeare Sonnets, as well as 5 Brother's Grimm fairy-tales, and 3 'books' from Les Miserable by Victor Hugo. I hope to keep this up every month for the rest of the year. I guess we will see if that actually happens.

I have reviews up or coming up for these books so as usual this is just going to be a brief run down on each book I read.

Without further ado, let's get into my June Wrap Up...

The Twins At St Clare's by Enid Blyton: I didn't love this book. I have been having a great time reading Enid Blyton classics over the past few month and whilst I did enjoy this book it just wasnt as good as the others I have read. I found it a bit to slow and I had trouble caring about the characters. I love Enid Blyton but this book wasnt a favourite of mine.

The Key by Kathryn Hughes: This book started really slow. I was having trouble staying interested in it at the beginning. Just before the half way point it really picked up speed and I couldn't put it down. I am so glad I stuck with it, because it was so worth it in the end. This book is definitely worth the read.

We Are Young by Cat Clarke: I really enjoyed this book. I was hooked from the first page. I was able to related to so many of the characters which made this story really captivating for me. I loved the story and the was it developed. I will definitely be reading this book again in the future.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon: This was a nice, easy to read book. I enjoyed it but I didn't love it. I found it a little to predictable for my taste and I had trouble sympathising with the main characters. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a quick, light read.

From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon: I really enjoyed this book. I wasnt sure about it going into it but it really drew me in and kept me interested until the very last page. I honestly didn't want this book to end. I am so glad I pick this book up. I will be definitely be reading it again in the future.

Shakespeare: I read 1 Shakespeare play and 10 Sonnets in June, I also read 1 Shakespeare Poem. I read the following Shakespeare Works This Month:



Sonnets 51-60

Les Miserable: For those who don't know this novel, it is broken up into character sections with each character section containing 'books'. Within each of these books are chapters. These 'books' come in various sizes, it is just the luck of the draw really. I hope to read 3 'books' each month. I have read the following 'books' this month:


- Book 8: The Noxious Poor

The Idyll In The Rue Plumet And The Epic Of The Rue Saint-Denis:

- Book 1: A Few Pages Of History

- Book 2: Eponine

Brother's Grimm: I am happy to say that I not only completed my goals of reading 5 Brother Grimm Fairy Tales in June, I doubled it. I read the following Tales this month:

Herr Korbes

The Pack Of Ragamuffins

The Death Of The Little Hen

The Owl

The Wonderful Musician

The Mouse, The Bird, And The Sausage

The Crumbs On The Table

The Louse And The Flea

The Wolf And The Seven Little Kids

The Wolf And The Fox

That's it for my June Wrap Up. I hope you all had a great reading month. Let me know what you guys read this month in the comments section.

Until my July Wrap Up...

Happy Reading...
