My 5 Favorite Reads from June 2024

I had a pretty good reading month in June! I had a lot of reads I really enjoyed and a few that I loved!

I read 19 books in June and 6699 pages, for an average of 353 pages per book. I read 11 books by female authors and 8 books by male authors. I borrowed 6 books and owned 13 of the books I read. I read 5 physical copies, 4 eBooks, and 10 audiobooks. Of the books I read, 5 were rereads and 14 were new reads. I read 8 middle grades, 5 YA, and 7 adult books. I started 2 series and finished 0 (and read 5 books that were part of a series). I read 11 of the 15 books on my monthly TBR and 4 books on my yearly TBR (of 33). I read 6 five star reads, 10 four star reads, 3 three star reads, and 0 two or one star reads.

Today, I wanted to share my top 5 favorite books from the month of June!

Juniper Bean Resorts to Murder by Gracie Ruth Mitchell

This romcom meets cozy mystery was really fun to read! As far as the mystery it went, it was fairly predictable, but still fun to see the characters figure it out and their relationship was very engaging!

The Other Bennet Sister by Janice Hadlow

I'm always very wary of books that are trying to write further from other (beloved) characters. In this case, I thought she did a great job staying true to the characters and it was really fun seeing a happy ending for Mary and how she got there.

This is Where You Belong by Melody Warnick

This nonfiction book talked about the importance of finding belonging in a community and different ways you could do that right where you are at. While I didn't feel like I was the target audience of the book, I found the research very interesting and came away with a greater desire to be more invested in my community and reach out to my neighbors more.

Black Coffee by Agatha Christie

This Agatha Christie was originally a play and was adapted to novel format by Charles Osborne. Because of that, the writing can sometimes feel a little stilted, but the characters and mystery are still on point, and I had a lot of fun reading it.

A Game of Hearts by Joanna Barker

This was my favorite book this month (and will probably end up being one of my favorites this year!). This regency romance had a really great hate-to-love relationship with a marriage of convenience during the second half that was really fun to read. I loved the characters and the relationships they had with each other throughout.

These were some fun reads in June and I'd highly recommend them! What were some of your favorite reads in June? What is a book you've recently read that you just loved? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!
