I haven’t done one of these posts in what feels like forever, but I’ve started to become a little more organised so I was able to this month! I’ve managed to read 17 books this month, don’t ask how but the lack of sleep helped! Without further ado, here’s my June wrap up list.
A Modern Family a Nordic domestic fiction read, written by Helga Flatland, translated by Rosie Hedger. Published by Orenda Books in various formats on the 30th of June, you can grab an e-book copy here, or a beautiful paperback here. It is also available in an audible version on Amazon. My review can be found here.
The Last Widow by Karin Slaughter. The newest instalment of the Will Trent crime thriller series. This read was published by Harper Collins on the 13th of June in a variety of formats, although if you’re a paperback fan you’ll have to wait a little longer (sorry!) My review can be found here.
My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite that was published by Atlantic Books on the 3rd of January 2019. This read was shortlisted for the Woman’s Prize for Fiction 2019, and what a shortlist it was! You can treat yourself to a copy here, or pre – order the paperback that’s out October 2019 here, ready for winter hibernation!
The Spider, written by Leo Carew and published by Wildfire is the second instalment of the ‘Under the Northern Sky’ series. Named as ‘the next George RR Martin’ by the Mail on Sunday, it’s definitely one for fantasy fans. You can grab yourself a copy here! My review is to come!
Another blog tour read that I immersed myself in this month was Stop at Nothing by Tammy Cohen. I was originally gifted a copy by Transworld for review, but two birds one stone – I jumped on the #Randomthingstour…. win win! The e-book version of this book is released on the 18.7, whereas the paperback won’t be available until the 23.1.20! You can pre – order both here! Keep an eye out for my review!
I indulged in a little independent readathon this month, that was both spontaneous and welcomed! Three Michael J Malone books in three weeks that included A Suitable Lie, House of Spines and After He Died. All books published by Orenda Books in 2016, 2017 and 2018. You can read my first instalment review of #MaloneMonday here!
The Scribe by A.A Chaudhuri is the first instalment of the A Kramer and Carver Thriller series, due to be published by Endeavour Media on the 8th of July, you can pre – order here! The Scribe is also available on Kindle unlimited from the 1st of July OR it can be purchased for 99p after that date. My review is to come.
The unmaking of Ellie Took by Sandra Ireland due to be published by Polygon on the 11th of July. My review is coming to a post near you on the 4th of July.
Who Killed Ruby? By Camilla Way that was published yesterday by Harper Collins, a punchy psychological thriller – just what you want in a weekend read! Chills may be experienced.
Prey is a memoir written by Cassie Pike with Katy Weitz, about her life being groomed by the Halifax sex trafficking gang. Prey was published on the 16th of May by John Blake Publishing. You can check out my review here if you missed it this month.
Cisco by James W White, that is due to be published in paperback on the 1st of August and e-book on the 1st of September, by Dark Passages Publishing. You can check out my review here of this crime fiction noir.
I was gifted Foam on the Crest of Waves by Silke Stein to review (review to come) that’s an independently published book with themes of family loss and healing. *Tissues required*
Hunting Evil by Chris Carter was one of this year’s most anticipated reads! I loved An Evil Mind and this sequel was even more warped!
An enlightening feminist read that I read this month was It’s Not About The Burqa published this year by Picador. It is a bound anthology of essays written by strong Muslim women. I would highly recommend this read, which is both an educational and eye opening read. Keep your eyes peeled for my review next month. Also, one of the prettiest hardcovers that I’ve seen.
My final read of this month was From Inside the House by WD Jackson – Smart in preparation for a blog tour next month. This haunting thriller is out on kindle on the 1st of July, published by the brilliant Panther Publishing. Review is to come.
All these books should be on your radar! Have you read them yet? What did you think?
