June Books RECAP

June Books Recap features 6 images of books over a background of a wooden table and worn cement wall. The 6 books are: The Undine's Tear by Talena Winters, The Queen of War by Alex Linwood, Once Upon A Wardrobe by Patti Callahan as the top row; The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg, Frostblood by Elly Blake, and Flames of Mars by Tjalara Draper on the bottom row.

I’m feeling SO accomplished as I write this June Books Recap post! Know why? Because I’ve met my June Book Goals! Okay, okay, there is *one* book I didn’t read in time to finish this month. But I have started the wonderful R. K. Hart’s To Dream of White and Gold today, so I’m calling that close enough! *Sets off all the confetti, streamers and balloons* My bookworm heart is incredibly happy.

I almost exclusively read fantasy this month, with just the exquisite Once Upon A Wardrobe being a different genre, as a historical fiction novel. Both Indie and traditionally published authors got a spotlight in this June Books Recap, as I continued to try to make a dent in my book fort from beautiful bookstores like Dymocks, QBD & Booktopia…

Summing up how things went for the June Books Recap: there is a Kobo at the front of the image on a table, opened up to a book; to the left of it is a cat mug with tea in it, and to the back right is a plate of 3 chocolate covered doughnuts. Books and sustenance! Image is by Perfecto_Capucine via Pixabay.
Tea and treats… Is there a better way to enjoy a good story?

And the June Favourite Read Goes To…

I fell in love with pretty much all of the books I read this month, for various reasons. But nothing could quite match Patti Callahan’s novel, Once Upon A Wardrobe, for the magic it held. As a historical fiction that features C. S. Lewis, a sister who loves her family more than anything, and the magic of Aslan and Narnia, how could I choose anything else? Like I said in my original review, this is a must read for anyone who loves Narnia, and the enticing magic of a good story…

And that’s a wrap, glitterbugs!

Happy reading, dear bookworms. And stay tuned for more reviews in July…
