June 2020 Book Haul

Hello everyone! Today I am back with my book haul for the month of June! I really like the haul I have this month and I'm excited to read all the books I got! I got a total of 10 books and have already read some of them. Let's just go ahead and dive right in!

The Archer at Dawn (The Tiger at Midnight Trilogy, #2)The first book I got this month was a finished hardcover of The Archer at Dawn by Swati Teerdhala which was sent to me by Wunderkind PR! This is the sequel to The Tiger at Midnight which I read in May and enjoyed! I'm really excited to see where this sequel goes since the synopsis seems to hint at some exciting things!

Girl, InterruptedThe next book I got was one that I ended up buying for class before finding out the professor put up digital copies for us to use. That was Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen. I did read this one in June and it was pretty eye-opening and interesting, but I wouldn't say that I enjoyed it or liked it. I don't think this is one that I'm going to read again so when I get the chance I'm actually going to unhaul it.

How to Be Less Stupid About Race: On Racism, White Supremacy, and the Racial DivideUp next I have How to Be Less Stupid About Race by Crystal M. Fleming. This was a book recommended to me for education on systematic racism in America. I'm hoping to read it later this summer because I definitely need to be more educated on all aspects of how ingrained racism is in our society.

Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About RaceThen I got Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge. This is another book discussing systematic racism but this has a focus on Britain. I've actually been wanting to read it for a while but finally got the push I needed to buy it. As someone who wants to study in Britain for my masters and hopefully get a job there after graduating, I know that I need to learn about how systematic racism presents itself in the country I want to live in.

Archenemies (Renegades, #2)The next book I got was through a trade so I didn't end up paying anything for it which was nice. That book was Archenemies by Marissa Meyer, the sequel to Renegades. I'm planning on binging this trilogy in July and I'm really excited to have the first two books already!

Rage and Ruin (The Harbinger, #2)Then I picked up a copy of Rage and Ruin by Jennifer L. Armentrout. More accurately, I preordered it months ago and was so caught up with class that I forgot I had it ordered until I got the shipping notification. Either way, this cover is absolutely stunning, especially put side-by-side with the first book, and I'm very excited to read this series!

Dear Martin (Dear Martin, #1)Up next I picked up a copy of Dear Martin by Nic Stone. This is one that's been on my radar but I never bought it. It was on sale in June and I knew that a lot of people had recommended it for fiction by Black authors and so I decided to pick it up. I also ended up being so intrigued that I started reading it the day I got it and finished it the next!

Then I got my UK preorder of The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty. The UK editions are absolutely stunning and I'm so excited to have this edition for my collection. I cannot wait until I have shelves again and can display these books properly! I also got my preorder for the US hardcover of The Empire of Gold as well! Both editions are stunning and I am so excited to have them.

The Empire of Gold (The Daevabad Trilogy, #3) The Empire of Gold (Daevabad Trilogy, #3)

Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in AmericaLastly, I picked up a copy of Stamped From the Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi. I am going to be doing a lot of reading for education this summer on systematic racism, but I also think that it's important I learn the history of how it all started and how we got to the point we're at. I've heard a lot of praise for this book and I'm definitely hoping to at least get a good chunk of it read in July (since it is 600+ pages!).

Thanks for reading!
