Although I had half of the month to do whatever I wanted (summer break woohooo), I was very worried about my exam grades and whether I would graduate or not, so I didn’t read nearly as much as I had originally planned 😔
However, the books I did read were generally good, so that sort of makes up for it 😉
Books read: 4
Pages read: 1457
Favorite read of the month: Lies by T.M. Logan ♡
Lies by T.M. Logan
This is a domestic thriller that, for once, follows a male main character who spends a lot of his time home with his kid.
Going into this, I never expected to like it as much as I did. And from reading the synopsis, I definitely did not expect the story would go that way – let alone the plot twist! Best read of the month, for sure 🙌🏼

★★★★★ 5/5 stars
This Does Not Leave this House by Julie Coons
I believe this is the first non-fiction I’ve read thoroughly. I can’t stress enough how important Julie’s story is.
It’s a memoir in which the author tells us how she broke two different cycles of abuse – first, in her family, then in her marriage. It’s a book every adult should read, I’m sure it will have some effect on anyone that does pick it up – and it could potentially save someone by preventing them from getting caught up in a similar situation.

★★★★☆ 4/5 stars
Ensina-me a Voar Sobre os Telhados by João Tordo
As you can tell, this is a national novel, so I’ll be very brief (hasn’t been translated 😔).
This book had an interesting plot – there are two lines of narrative, about 100 years apart from one another. I liked the way they intertwined, but this was a weird story. Although I enjoyed it, I just wasn’t a fan of the story and all the philosophy that was thrown in there. I can’t stand philosophy to begin with 😩
★★★☆☆ 3.5/5 stars
The House at Saltwater Point by Colleen Coble
I picked this one up because I remembered it’s going to be published very soon, and I like to review books right before they come out. I received it through Netgalley, and boy am I glad I requested it 🙌🏼
This is a mystery novel, but it has ROMANCE! What a wild concept, I know. But I’m pretty sure this is the first mystery novel I read that gives me that same feeling I get from reading YA contemporaries – pure joy. 💕 The romance is not the main subject though, and nothing romantic actually happens until about 80%, so if you’re not in it for the romance, you’ll still enjoy this one – the plot is very gripping!
Oh, and I have something new to add to my reviews now – I’m so excited!!
Doesn’t it look so pretty? I’m obsessed, I hope you like it as well!! 😍

★★★★☆ 4/5 stars
So June was not my best month, but I am definitely planning to make up for it in July. I want to at least double the amount I read in June – Goodreads tells me I’m 14 books behind schedule, so I better shape up 😋
