Book Haul: June 2022

Book Haul

Hi there! Happy Saturday and happy July! June went by in a flash, and the hot days are here in New England. I’m not a fan of heat or sun or humidity, so I’m spending quite a bit of time in my nice air conditioned house. Hopefully, we’ll have a break from the heat soon!

I had a decent reading month in June, though I feel like I’m in a little slump now. Not much is holding my interest, and I feel like I’ve slogged through some of my most recent reads. Luckily, I have a buddy read this weekend that I’m really excited about.

Let’s check out some of the amazing books I hauled in June! As always, if you click on the image, it will take you to Goodreads.


eBooks from NetGalley and Publishers:

Of the fifteen books I received, I’ve already read seven of them. My favorite of the ones I read is The Dead Romantics.


eBooks from the Author:

So far, I read Blood Price and A Governess Should Never Deny a Duke. I loved them both. And I won a physical copy of Blood Price, which I’m thrilled about! That cover is so gorgeous! I plan on reading A Shield of Fate and Ruin this week. It’s the third in Nicole Bailey’s Apollo Ascending series, and I adore these characters and their love stories!!


Book Mail:

I received a ton of amazing book mail from friends, authors, and publishers this moth! Dini @ Dini Panda Reads got me Book Lovers and Autora’s End, and Jennifer @ My Book Joy sent me My Killer Vacation. Thank you both for these amazing gifts! I’m excited to read all three!

Courtney McCaskill sent me a copy of What’s an Earl Gotta Do? (love that title!), and Darcy Burke sent me The Duke of Defiance, which I won in a giveaway. All of the other books came from publishers and book tours- thanks to Orbit Books, Forever Publishing, Entangled Publishing, TLC Book Tours, and Page One Media for these great reads!

  1. Nope, haven’t read any of those

    June was an incredible month: in terms of the books (combo of buying and library)

    1. The Land of the Silver Apples- bought (but when I bought it, was hoping to buy the final book of that trilogy, but wasn’t in stock at the time)
    2. Bookshop of the Broken-Hearted (was ready to read another Kindle book)
    3. A Personal Librarian (in a way it counts, as I put it on hold on Libby)
    4. Books and Mortar

      1. In June, only read and finished three books, which included only one of those books: so below are the ones I read

        1. Bookshop of the Broken-Hearted- the book, which finished my Goodreads goal

        2. Sea of Trolls- I enjoyed it, explaining why I bought The Land of the Silver Apples (still waiting to buy the 3rd and final book)

        3. Favorite Greek Myths- good way to read myths in a simple way (each one had an illustration at the beginning); it even has The Hadestown myth in there

  2. That is a wonderful haul, and not bad for the month. Congrats on all those gifted books, Wendy. I hope you enjoy them all. I am pending for The Dead Romantics, so I will see if I get it or not.

  3. Omg, what an awesome haul, Julie! I’m a wee bit jelly of your ARC list, especially seeing Olivia Dade’s, Chloe Gong’s and Ali Hazelwood’s books on there BUT I hope you enjoy them and I can’t wait to read your reviews 😍 I’ve also been feeling a bit slumpish or restless with my reading lately and I’ve not been enjoying as many books as I thought I would… So I’m really hoping our buddy read this weekend will kickstart some kind of excitement again! Happy reading 💜

    1. I can’t believe I was approved for Foul Lady Fortune, Dini! Soooo excited to read it! They all sound great, and I’m excited to read Dade and Hazelwood’s books too. I definitely have a good reading month ahead of me. 🙂 Thank you!

      1. It reminds of The Scorpio Races and I read that so long ago (it makes me want to reread it) but it’s similar with the racing water horses except in Monsters Born and Made, they are a bit more monstrous and the world-building is more fantasy based. I’m enjoying it so far, I’m about 20% in.
