2021 READING CHALLENGE | WHAT I'VE READ IN JUNE

It's that time of the month again already, where I share with you what i have been reading. June has been a really good reading month. I feel that I have read a good mixture and there have been some really great reads. 


Let's start with the quick reads, all four of these books are 100 or under pages. Quick reads are great for those that don't have much time to read for example. They are also a great way of finding new authors who's style of writing you enjoy.


Saving the day by Katie Fforde

An enjoyable read with an uplifting story about finding courage. I always find books of this genre easy to read and light hearted.


The Skylight by Louise Candlish 

I love a bit of mystery and Candlish did it with this one especially within under 100 pages . 


Wish you were dead by Peter James

I enjoyed this one and found it to be a good thriller for a quick read. This is my first read from Peter James and I'll have to check out some of his other books.


The baby is mine by Oyinkan Braithwaite 

I was disappointed in this one and thought I'd enjoy it more than I did. I've not heard of this author before but would be interested in what her other books are like.




The Catch by T.M.Logan 
Ed is delighted to meet his daughters fiancé for the first time. Ryan seems to be the perfect future son in law. There is just one problem, there is something off about Ryan. Something hidden in the shadows behind his eyes, but only Ed can see it. I found this to be a bit of a slow starter but then picked up and I was gripped.



Blurred Lines by Hannah Begbie 
Becky accidentally sees her boss with a women that isn't his wife. She is horrified but keeps quiet, she owes Matthew alot for what he has done for her career. But when the same women accussess him of rape and asks for the witness to come forward Becky doesn't know what to do. Was it rape or a young actress looking to get ahead? I found this book to be a bit of struggle unfortunately. It has a great premise but I unfortunately found it not gripping enough and the pace was far too slow for me. 



The Foundling by Stacey Halls 
It's London 1754, six years after leaving her new born baby Clara at The Foundling hospital, Bess Bright returns to pick up her illegitimate daughter. Dreading that her daughter died in care, the last thing she is expecting is to be told that she had already been reclaimed. Her life is turned upside down as she tries to find out who took her little girl. Less than a mile away in a quiet town house a wealthy widow who barely ventures out takes in a nursemaid. Is her past threatening to catch up with her?  I do enjoy historical fiction and it was interesting read.


Tap to Tidy by Stacey Solomon 
I wish that I was alot more organised than I am especially in regards to our home. This book by Stacey Solomon has some great ideas for organisation around the home as well as crafting. 


Dear Reader: The comfort and joy of books by Cathy Rentzenbrink
A Book exploring how books can change the course of your life. Cathy shares how she has lost and found herself in stories. Growing up she was rarely seen without her nose in a book. There are also some great recommendations of books.


Behind her eyes by Sarah Pinborough
A single mother enters a world of twisted mind games when she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss while secretly befriending his mysterious wife. I watched the Netflix series a few months ago and really enjoyed it so had to read the book. So far I've found it that the book and series are pretty similar.
