June 2024 Wrap-Up + Book Haul


June has come to a close and we're already halfway through the year! This was a very busy month for me and I did not read as much as I'd hoped to. I enjoyed the two books I read, though, and I'm very much looking forward to July's reading goals!

I hauled four books this month, which is a rather large number compared to the past few months. I'm pretty excited about all that I got, though, so let's go ahead and dive in!

Up first, I got Leather & Lark by Brynne Weaver. This is the sequel to Butcher & Blackbird which is one of my favorite reads of the year so far. I was so incredibly excited for this sequel (which I've already finished and loved). Not only that, but the first printings had a typo with a mini "i" and I know it's silly but I really wanted one. This one does indeed have the baby "i" and I'm just so thrilled about it!

Then I picked up I Am Grey by Jane Washington. This is a standalone from Jane that she recently announced she'd re-edited and changed a bit. This version was going to be going out of print and I wanted to snag a copy so that I could compare the original versus the new version. It's also just beautiful.

When I was visiting my hometown, my mom and I went to the local used bookstore I've been going to for years. I just browsed for a bit and ended up grabbing a copy of The Candy Shop War by Brandon Mull. This is one of my favorite stories from when I was a kid and I had actually never had a copy before. So when I saw a hardcover in perfect condition I snagged it up. And now I can reread it and finally get to the sequels!

The last book I picked up this month was the Fairyloot edition of Emily Wilde's Map of the Otherlands by Heather Fawcett. I ordered this ages ago, I think right when I moved back to the USA, and it's finally here! This is the sequel to Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries which I got in a Fairyloot box a while back. It was the most stunning edition and I knew I was going to want the matching edition for this one. I haven't yet read the first one but it's on my fall TBR so I can't wait to get to it then and be able to dive straight into the sequel after!



Thanks for reading!
