I actually can’t believe I’m writing TBR June (even if we are almost half way now).. I swear it’s still January? This means I’ve been blogging for six months this month, it’s mad!
However, I’ve been seriously slacking on my reading and my book-related posts recently – I’ve been spending more time watching Youtube videos and Netflix and less time reading, but I’m going to fix that this month (with the exception of Orange is the New Black obviously).
You may have seen me mention in my May Favourites that I was loving finally reading Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I loved it that much that I’m currently on the second book, Walking Disaster. The book is your typical good girl meets bad boy kind of book but with lots of drama – and I love a bit of drama. However, the second book covers the same period of time as the first book, but it’s all from Travis’ point of view, as opposed to Abby’s. I really love it when books do this. I find the book really hard to follow if the POVs keep switching within the book, so actually having two separate books is a much better idea. It sounds kind of boring and repetitive, but actually seeing it from a different POV makes a whole other story. If you like a romance, this is definitely a book/series you should check out – especially if your in your late teens/early twenties, as it’s probably more relatable.
Also on my TBR for June are Morgan Matson’s books. I’ve just bought Since You’ve Been Gone, after wanting to buy it for ages (in fact I think it was on my March TBR). I’ve been kind of hoping the price would go down as it’s £8, but I caved this morning and bought it in Waterstones. It’s a YA book that sounds strangely similar to Paper Towns. The book is about to best friends and how when one of them (Sloane) goes missing and leaves behind a to-do-list that can supposedly bring back Sloane, wallflower Emily begins to follow the to-do-list.
I also really want to read The Unexpected Everything, by Morgan, this month. I’ve heard some fab things about this book and it was nominated for the Goodreads Choice Awards Best Young Adult Fiction, so it can’t be bad. It also has dogs on the front cover – a deciding factor, of course. It basically follows a girl, Andie, who seems to have an ideal and perfectly planned out life, but things don’t end up going to plan one summer and she ends up doing things she never would’ve even thought about before – including becoming a dog walker.
So this month I plan to finish Walking Disaster, and read the third book in the series, Beautiful Wedding (oops spoiler), followed by Morgan Matson’s Since You’ve Been Gone and The Unexpected Everything!
