Monthly Wrap-Up: June 2021

Posted July 1, 2021 by Stephanie in monthly wrap up / 19 Comments

June wasn’t the best reading month for me. I don’t know what it was but most of the books I read were just okay. At least I had one 5 star read!

 


Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare — 3/5★
The Bond by Robin Kirk — 2/5★


Mindscaping: A Practical Guide For How To Be Happier by Donovon Jenson — 4/5★ (my review)
Lying with Lions by Annabel Fielding — 3/5★ (my review)


Like a Love Song by Gabriela Martins — 2/5★ (review to come)
Screaming Whispers by Shreya Vijay — 5/5★ (my review)

 

 

 

FAVORITE BOOK OF THE MONTH:

‘Screaming Whispers’ encompasses a plethora of poems that are the creation of a young woman’s mind. With each stroke of the pen, the ink stained the paper and these poems were birthed.

The underlying theme of the book is based on how writing serves as therapy for the author. She seeks to awaken the souls of her readers to a wide spectrum of emotions that are otherwise, often taken for granted. Most of the themes of her poems are borrowed from something she has felt deeply or has witnessed from the sidelines.

Via the medium of her poems, she wishes to instigate lasting impact on her readers and make them appreciate the subtle art of poetry. All the poems in this book are not mere literary pieces. They are the pieces of her soul. Now that they are with you, please keep them safe.

  1. June was a terrible reading month for me as well. So many misses/ DNFs, I don’t know whether it was me or the books. I remember your reviews of Mindscaping and Screaming Whispers, at least the month was a complete dud for you!

    • I didn’t love Queen of Air and Darkness. It was very long and I wanted it over with, still a good book but it kept going on forever lol
