I never realize how many books I’ve read until I actually list them out. I think I’m just always so busy reading that I don’t stop to realize. I read a bunch of great books in June and had to narrow it down to the ones I loved the most.

In no particular order my favorites for the month were:
- 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne. I wrote about it here. I loved this romcom about Darcy getting a chance with her life-long friend and life-long crush, Tom.
- A Game of Retribution & A Touch of Malice by Scarlett St. Clair. I wrote about the A Touch of Darkness series here. A Game of Retribution is told from Hades perspective in A Touch of Ruin and A Touch of Malice follows that from Persephone’s point of view. I love this spicy retelling.
- It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey. I wrote my review for this one last week. I absolutely loved this book and reread so many pages and chapters of this book already. It follows Piper, a rich socialite, sent to live in a small fishing town in Washington for a few months. There she meets a grumpy sea captain, Brendan.
- Hook, Line, & Sinker by Tessa Bailey. I finished this spin-off of It Happened One Summer last week and will post my review next week. I loved this romcom that follows Hannah (Piper’s sister) and Fox (Brendan’s best friend) who were both introduced in the first book.
- The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. I wrote about this hilarious book here. It was my first Christina Lauren book and will not be my last. Olive and Ethan are the only two people at the wedding of Olive’s sister and Ethan’s brother who did not get food poisoning. Since Olive’s sister had won a completely paid for honeymoon to Maui, Olive and Ethan are talked into taking the vacation instead of letting it go to waste. The problem is they can’t stand each other and now they need to pretend they’re newly married and on their honeymoon. It was a real enemies to lovers book and made me laugh out loud.
- The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab. I wrote about this beautiful book recently. In the novel, Addie has been alive for over 200 years. As a young woman she was going to be forced into marriage so she prays to be saved. The god who answers her prayers is one of the gods he answers after dark, that she had been warned against. Desperate she makes a deal with him. She can have total freedom and when she is satisfied she will give him her soul. The catch? No one ever remembers her.
That’s a roundup of my favorite reads from June! Can’t wait to see what makes it to my list for July!
