June 2017 Wrap-Up & Favorites

I want to catch up on my ARCs and I’m traveling quite a lot this summer, so I managed to be good this month. I didn’t request any books on Netgalley and the two I got had been requested a while ago. And I read 14 books in June, so I’m pretty happy.

This month was special because it was my 1-year blogiversary! So yes, I’m quite happy about that, but on the other hand, I was weak again and requested too many books on Netgalley and I even went back to Edelweiss. I know, I have no willpower whatsoever.

April Wrap-Up (+TBR!)

I didn’t have time to post it on the actual date, but the 23rd of April has always been my favorite day of the year. It is Saint George‘s day here in Catalonia and we celebrate it by buying roses and BOOKS. If you go out, all you see are roses and books. It’s amazing. I got 6 books! Other news: now I have a book-related Instagram! Please, follow me: @themisstery91. I’d love to follow you back!

March Wrap Up (+TBR!)

This month I’m pretty proud of myself because none of my Netgalley requests have been crime novels or psychological thrillers. I managed to diversify a bit… and let’s see how that goes!

☼ Books I Read ☼

The Roanoke Girls

City of Good Death

Her Every Fear

Never Let You Go

The Missing Ones

The Devil’s Daughter

Born Bad

Gone Without A Trace

The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley

The Trouble With Goats And Sheep

Ragdoll

When We Danced At The End of The Pier

My favorites? The Trouble With Goats and Sheep was amazing. And while the others were great, I think Ragdoll and Roanoke Girls really stand out.
