After a mad May involving more books than the rest of the year combined, I don’t expect June to be quite so fruitful – but you never know.
I have one run-over from May and that is Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page which I am really enjoying. I love it when authors twist well-known stories into something new and dark.
First up is Way Down Dark by James Smythe which I have wanted to read for ages and I got hold of when it was on offer on the Kindle store but then didn’t actually read (so many books, so little time!)
Then there is Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett which has sat unread on my shelf for far too long and after reading The Fifth Elephant last month I have remembered how much I love reading Discworld novels.
Next is The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley which won the Costa Book of the Year award last year and has an awesomely creepy front cover that I failed to resist in a Book People flash sale…
Last on my list for June is Night World Volume 2 by L. J. Smith which is actually three books in one but they are short easy reads and I technically read the first one when I was about fourteen so should get through that one super fast. I am hoping they are as good as I remember as it was this series that got me into Urban Fantasy in the first place.
I know I said I would only pick four titles but I still have a couple of Michael Morpurgo short story books sat unread on the shelf that I am likely to pick up and read when I have a spare half hour or so – I do so love his story-telling style.
