Books I Read in June 2022
This month I read 4 more books, bringing me up to 30 books out of my goal of 50 for this year. Here is what I read:
- My Dearest Darkest by Kayla Cottingham
This book has similar vibes to the show Pretty Little Liars with a supernatural overtone. It was a fun read filled with realistic relationships between the main characters. My only wish for this book is that more time had been spent developing the main villain and solidifying their goals. Overall it was a fun book about students living at a boarding school and acting like real teenagers.
- 1984 by George Orwell
1984 has been on my TBR for years and I am so glad I got around to reading it. Dystopian fiction has been my favorite genre since I got into The Hunger Games in middle school. This book is psychologically terrifying in concept. The last few chapters may be hard to read if you are a generally sensitive person. All in all it was a well written book in a well thought out world that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys Dystopian fiction.
- Atomic Habits by James Clear
I actually listened to the audiobook of this on YouTube. Listening to it made it feel like a motivational talk rather than a book on my to-do list. I found myself following the advice and organizing or writing out my goals along with the advice. If you are looking for a book to help you feel inspired and motivated to take the first step towards your dreams, this book is for you.
- The Second Time Around by Mary Higgins Clark
I don’t know how this book wound up on my bookshelf, but I couldn’t be more grateful. Reading it felt like watching an episode of Criminal Minds. The chapters alternate perspectives between a journalist and a criminal. There are so many layers to the story that come together intricately in the end. This book has everything from crime, to relationships, to journalistic investigations, and stocks. The Second Time Around is a book you will not be able to put down until the very last page.
