Happy June! Anyone else busily making summer reading lists? I’m aiming for a mix of unread classics and brand new reads. There are so many great books I want to pick up that I’m already setting aside some serious reading time in June. I’ll be sharing some great summer reading ideas in the next few weeks here on the blog. This month, I’m hoping to finish a few books I’ve been slowly reading, as well as set aside time for some quick reads.
Here are three books I’m hoping to pick up this month:
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
I won’t lie. I’ve decided to read Sharp Objects now because of the impending HBO series. This story follows Camille, tasked with reporting on the murders of two girls in her hometown. It’s a murder mystery that sounds like it will be all kinds of intense and scary. I loved Gone Girl and am excited to give this a try!
Trouble the Water by Jacqueline Friedland
Abigail, a young British woman, is sent to America to work for Douglas Elling as a governess twenty years before the Civil War. But when Abigail learns Douglas is helping a slave to escape, her entire life changes. I think this story will be quite emotional but it’s well reviewed.
Visible Empire by Hannah Pittard
A plane crash in 1960s Atlanta leaves a city bereft. It is now up to the residents left behind to move Atlanta forward. I’ve heard mixed things about this book but it’s received a fair amount of hype. We’ll see if it lives up to expectations!
That’s it for today! What books are you hoping to read in June?
