June TBR

I don’t often have a set TBR list for the month as I generally prefer to pick and choose from my books when I finish one. However this month I actually do have a list of books I want to get through, both because I want to read those and in some cases because of outside time constraints. So what will I be aiming to read this month?

Young Fleetwood Shuttleworth, a noblewoman, is with child again. None of her previous pregnancies have borne fruit, and her husband, Richard, is anxious for an heir. Then Fleetwood discovers a hidden doctor’s letter that carries a dire prediction: she will not survive another birth. By chance she meets a midwife named Alice Grey, who promises to help her deliver a healthy baby. But Alice soon stands accused of witchcraft.

I’ve been looking forward to reading The Familiars for a while now and my library reservation has finally come in so it’s jumped to the top of my TBR list.

Zafira is the Hunter, disguising herself as a man when she braves the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the king. If Zafira was exposed as a girl, all of her achievements would be rejected; if Nasir displayed his compassion, his father would punish him in the most brutal of ways. 

Both are legends in the kingdom of Arawiya—but neither wants to be.

War is brewing, and the Arz sweeps closer with each passing day, engulfing the land in shadow. When Zafira embarks on a quest to uncover a lost artifact that can restore magic to her suffering world and stop the Arz, Nasir is sent by the king on a similar mission: retrieve the artifact and kill the Hunter. But an ancient evil stirs as their journey unfolds—and the prize they seek may pose a threat greater than either can imagine.

I keep seeing We Hunt the Flame everywhere on Twitter at the moment and was thrilled to be granted an e-arc via netgalley.

Carrie White is no ordinary girl.

Carrie White has the gift of telekinesis.

To be invited to prom night by Tommy Ross is a dream come true for Carrie – the firststep towards social acceptance by her high school colleagues.

But events will take a decidedly macabre turn on that horrifying and endless night as she is forced to exercise her terrible gift on the town that mocks and loathes her.

I’ve never read any Stephen King before so I’m hoping this won’t scare me too much! It’s the Bookgroup choice for the group I belong to so I’ll definitely be giving it a go!

Glimmering like a jewel behind its gateway, The Kingdom is an immersive fantasy theme park where guests soar on virtual dragons, castles loom like giants, and bioengineered species–formerly extinct–roam free.

Ana is one of seven Fantasists, beautiful “princesses” engineered to make dreams come true. When she meets park employee Owen, Ana begins to experience emotions beyond her programming including, for the first time… love.

But the fairytale becomes a nightmare when Ana is accused of murdering Owen, igniting the trial of the century. Through courtroom testimony, interviews, and Ana’s memories of Owen, emerges a tale of love, lies, and cruelty–and what it truly means to be human. 

The Kingdom is another book I’ve been lucky enough to receive an e-arc of, I’ve actually already started this one so I’m confident it will be a June read.

What do you want to read this month?

  1. Such great picks on your June TBR! I’m also keen to read The Familiars and We Hunt the Flame. Hope you enjoy them! I’m planning to read a lot of LGBTQIA+ books this month, and I think historical fiction too. Happy reading 🙂

  2. Thanks! I’ve high hopes for those ones. I don’t usually seek out LGBT+ books (don’t usually read a lot of romance of any sort) but I have read some with great LGBT+ rep already this year, Red, White and Royal Blue, The Binding and Priory of the Orange Tree all spring to mind. Hope you find some great ones to read.

  3. Enjoy! I don’t get to meet authors often either as most bookish events in UK are in London. Stacey Halls was really nice, it was lovely to meet her.
