A Million Junes
A Million Junes | Emily Henry
Romeo and Juliet meets One Hundred Years of Solitude in Emily Henry's brilliant follow-up to The Love That Split the World, about the daughter and son of two long-feuding families who fall in love while trying to uncover the truth about the strange magic and harrowing curse that has plagued their bloodlines for generations. In their hometown of Five Fingers, Michigan, the O'Donnells and the Angerts have mythic legacies. But for all the tall tales they weave, both founding families are tight-lipped about what caused the century-old rift between them, except to say it began with a cherry tree. Eighteen-year-old Jack "June" O'Donnell doesn't need a better reason than that. She's an O'Donnell to her core, just like her late father was, and O'Donnells stay away from Angerts. Period. But when Saul Angert, the son of June's father's mortal enemy, returns to town after three mysterious years away, June can't seem to avoid him. Soon the unthinkable happens: She finds she doesn't exactly hate the gruff, sarcastic boy she was born to loathe. Saul's arrival sparks a chain reaction, and as the magic, ghosts, and coywolves of Five Fingers conspire to reveal the truth about the dark moment that started the feud, June must question everything she knows about her family and the father she adored. And she must decide whether it's finally time for her--and all of the O'Donnells before her--to let go.

“We may just be moments, June, but to love a handful of people very well, that‘s a good life.”
Finally finished this book. I wanted to make sure I had time & wasn‘t distracted because this book is so great. Love the characters, especially Saul, and the themes of grief, life, and death are thought-provoking and heart-wrenching. This is a YA and magical realism book but hits the feels for anyone who‘s experienced loss/grief. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Megabooks This was a surprise 5⭐️ for me, too! Glad you loved it 2mo

I‘ve started A Million Junes twice in the last few weeks but have been too tired or busy to make much progress this week. Hoping for reading time today. It‘s really good so far, & I met the author back in February.
Wanted something funny on audio so downloaded Jim Gaffigan again.

I would say that if you're looking for something semi-thrilling/dangerous in a romantic aspect, this is for you. I liked it, but I didn't love it. Some parts of the book were hard to push myself through because I was just bored with it. However, I did end up liking the book, especially the sweet ending!

The Curse of Magical Realism continues. I was totally in love with June and Saul's relationship and their fantastic sparkling dialogue, but as soon as the magical realism elements crept into the story, my brain shut off. It's like a light switch. I want it to have either more magic or none at all.

Libby1 I feel the same way about magical realism! It‘s my kryptonite. 7mo
ferskner @Libby1 that's a great way to put it! I can't figure out why it bores me so much. 7mo

I picked this book up at a store near me that always always always ‼️‼️ has books at a super discounted price. (Lucky me, right?!) At first, I was a little *iffy* because it‘s not my usual genre. Very glad I took the chance because I‘m about half way in and it‘s giving me Romeo and Juliet/Hatfield and McCoy‘s vibes. 🤩 Has anyone else read this? What are your opinions? Any other feuding families you can relate this book to? 🤔

Reviews of this book seem to be either love or hate. I love Latin American lit because of the magic realism, so I'm looking forward to reading a YA novel incorporating the style (also Children of Blood and Bone, which is on my pile). A bit apprehensive because lately, all the 'trending' works have been rather disappointing. 😕

Before I get into why I didn‘t like this book, I want to share what I really liked: I thought the writing was beautiful and she wrote grief really well. The rest I didn‘t enjoy. The romance was extremely cringe-worthy. And it dragged on.

I‘ll be honest: I‘m not entirely clear on just what the fuck happened in this book - the explanation in the last 20 or so pages just left me going “Ok ... but ... and ... ok.” I think I get it like 90% of the way, but the writing and the overall story are so lovely and enchanting that I‘m alright with that. June in particular is an interesting character and I appreciated that she was a mess but in a realistic and not “quirky YA girl” way. 4/5 ⭐️

Grief is an unfillable hole in your body. It should be weightless, but it‘s heavy. Should be cold, but it burns. Should, over time, close up, but instead it deepens.

This was my second time reading this book, and I loved it just as much as the first time. The mystery of the curse is intriguing and very well written. The romance is great, I loved every interaction between June and Saul. And the father-daughter relationship is so touching. This book makes you appreciate the people who are still here and still love you.

I liked this magical realist YA novel. The romance was written well and I got hooked by the story. I thought it slowed down too much at the end, but I really enjoyed it overall. Recommend to fans of YA fiction.

The beginning was just ok, but I was really drawn into the second half. I loved the magical realism and the idea of memory connections to past loved ones. That being said, the idea of the book was better than the execution for me. I‘m between a pick and so-so, but I‘ll go with pick. #botm

I was into it at first and then things slowly went downhill. By the 75% mark I was just ready to be done and skimmed a bit to finish. The magical elements were too heavy handed, and the "current day" storyline felt more like an afterthought compared to the backstory (which didn't interest me as much). Not a total bust, just not for me. I think if you're a YA Fantasy fan wanting to try something contemporary, this might be more up your alley ? #YA

This weekend was exactly what I needed! Got into a groove that put me in a pleasant "high school nostalgia" bubble. Basically I read YA, binge watched One Tree Hill, and rocked out to a throwback playlist that consisted mostly of Dashboard Confessional, Jimmy Eat World, Fall Out Boy, AFI, and the like (hey, don't judge! ?). I had all food delivered and left the house exactly once (to get a manicure). Now I'm sinking into this #BOTM YA pick??

We‘ve all felt guilty, shameful and vengeful over past events. A Million Junes is a heart wrenching but beautiful story about how these feelings can be detrimental to everyone around us. How they can even be passed down to future generations. We can all become haunted by these emotions. We all need to let go of these feelings so they don‘t destroy us.

Finished this right before Christmas, but was too busy and stressed out to leave my thoughts. I loved this book! It was beautiful in both story and feel. It was magical without being too out there. Plus it features love and curses. It speaks on grief and forgiveness and leaves you feeling fuzzy by the end. I will definitely buy this book.
