June 2017 Wrap Up: #wrapup #June

Anyone who works in education or an education-related field waits for June with bated breath!   It always feels like there is not enough time and yet, time moves at a snail’s pace!  I work in an alternative school setting, so I work through the summer, but it is absolutely more relaxed and I am looking forward to the lighter weight load before I transition back into the public school system in September!

Needless to say, June was an absolutely crazy month for me personally, but, I must say, I had a seriously mediocre month for reading.

With life in the way and a full blown reading slump that plagued me for almost two weeks, I finished June with 25 titles read.

Keep reading to see what I read in June and, as always, be sure to click on the titles to bring you to the full reviews!

Lots of the summer’s most anticipated thrillers had their releases in June, as well!

The Good Widow by the writing duo of Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke came out at the very beginning of the month and this is a book that is the perfect book to read at the beach or to become consumed in with a glass of wine.  I also had the opportunity to talk to the duo about their writing process and who would survive a zombie apocalypse.

Marsh King Daughter

The Marsh King’s Daughter came out mid-month and was a twist on the classic abduction story.  I enjoyed this one’s raw elements and it’s take on Native culture.

The Child

The Child by Fiona Barton came out this month, marking the sophomore novel by Barton and one that many were anticipating.  This one was a miss for me.

One of my personal most anticipated crime novels was the serial killer thriller, The Fourth Monkey by J.D Barker!  I was also lucky enough to have J.D Barker on my blog for a Q&A.
