June was an amazing month for me! I’m not a speed reader and I’ll never be one of those people to accomplish reading 20+ books in a month. I’m really proud of reading 3 graphic novels and 6 books while planning a wedding and house hunting!
This month opened the doors to exploring Wonder Woman and Doctor Strange as comics in addition to continuing my reading of Deadly Class. I’ve seen both the recent movies surrounding these superheros and absolutely loved them. My local comic book store sold me Greg Rucka’s arch of Wonder Woman because of how much it explores her backstory. Sadly I was disappointed on the way the volume was compiled with only the odd numbered issues, resulting in little backstory exploration. I’m not letting that get me down and I’ve already picked up volume 2! Doctor Strange was one I pulled from the fiancé’s stash of graphic novels. This was just a small arch, but it hooked me from the start and I loved it! Deadly Class continued to prove that Rick Remender is a genius! Just when I thought the series couldn’t get better I was introduced to more backstory for each of the students and the overall story was addictive!
I had the chance to read several novels that I couldn’t put down! We’re talking four 5 star ratings! All The Missing Girls was uniquely told backwards and was captivated by the story. The Handmaid’s Tale was a scary look into a dystopian world. The Weight of Lies was a journey into a Southern Gothic world of murder and mystery. Final Girls brought to life a horror movie with a phenomenal twist!
Unfortunately I was disappointed with two my reads. The Party left me hating every single character in the novel. Into The Water left me wanting more and confused by the use of so many narrators.
I can’t wait to see what July holds!
