These are all the books I read in June which brings my total this year up to 38 😊 So I should.make my Goodreads goal of 70!

How many did you read this month?

Alice in Wonderland | Lewis Carroll
post image

A bit of Alice in Wonderland for your Thursday evening.

Everyone knows Alice, if not the book then one of the movie adaptions. I grew up with Disney's Alice and remember reading the book under the covers in bed after lights out. I still have that copy, it's just a little... ok, very... banged up so I bought this lovely edition 😊

What is your favourite HP book? After rereading them all at the end of last year, I'd say Half-Blood Prince.

Sophoclessweetheart Idk, such a choice! Probably Goblet of Fire or Order of the Phoenix for me 5y
georgianicolaoublog I'm reading order of the Phoenix atm but I loved The Goblet of Fire! 5y
NotAJot Agree! (Also favourite film!) 5y

bobregina I think Goblet of Fire. I enjoyed the foreigners 😁 5y
thebookdiviner Yes yes yes! By far my favourite. I love Voldy's back story and you can just feel everything coming together. And who can forget Roonil Wazlib 5y
the.reading.court @TheOtherMother It is so hard to choose a favourite 😂 5y
the.reading.court @georgianicolaoublog @bobregina Goblet of Fire was great because we got to learn about other wizarding schools 😍 5y
the.reading.court @thebookdiviner Exactly! Aahhh.... Roonil 😍😂 5y
jfalkens Prisoner of Azkaban or Deathly Hallows, but truthfully it's all but Order of the Phoenix, Umbridge makes me too mad 5y

I love bookish candles 😍 So I had to get a candle to match my current favourite fantasy trilogy!

The books are amazing and I highly recommend them to anyone who loves fantasy, magic, pirates, parallel universes etc.

Which books have been on your TBR forever that you can't seem to get around to?

For me, it's these beauties. I started this epic journey with Frodo and his friends maybe 15 or so years ago but never continued. I keep saying I will read them but to be honest, I'm not sure I'll get round to it anytime soon 🙈

bwaworga I must say Game of Thrones series 😅😅 5y
the.reading.court @bwaworga All the books together are very intimidating to start! 5y

Happy Friday!

What's your favourite classic?

I really love Oliver Twist and am going to reread later this year 😍

Anybody know the musical Oliver? The songs are amazing! I'll watch the DVD once I'm done with my reread 😊

The Book of Life | Deborah Harkness

I've started the last book in the trilogy today! The last few days I have just been lazing around and reading. It's too hot to do anything else 🤣

What have you been up to in this heat?

Stalking Jack the Ripper | Kerri Maniscalco
post image

I was in London last September and couldn't resist going on a Jack the Ripper walk. Having actually been in those places and seen some of the crime scene photos made reading this so much creepier. I quite liked Audrey Rose and am very excited for the sequel!

This was a pure cover buy because look how gorgeous it is!
The story was sweet but didn't quite capture my attention as much as I thought it would.

Wintersong | S Jae-Jones
post image

I know a lot of people didn't like Wintersong and while I understand their issues with the book I am willing to look past them all because I loved it so much. The writing was beautiful and I was immediately swept away by Liesl and the Goblin King 😍 I am really excited to read the next book!

I wonder if I would have enjoyed these more if I hadn't read Six of Crows/Crooked Kindgom first. SoC blew me away and I fell in love with the characters and the Grisha series left me feeling a bit... meh. The protagonist Alina got on my nerves and I couldn't connect with her but I love Prince Nikolai 😍

#grisha #shadowandbone #thedarkling #fantasy #bibliophile #lovebooks #booktography #ilovereading #booknerd #bookworm #readingissexy #bookpicture

Avi.reads I'm planning on reading this trilogy first, then the duology 😅 The hype and love for SoC is so big! 5y
Madamereadsalot I still need to read SoC, but though I liked the Grisha Trilogy, I was also not exactly blown away by it like apparently everyone else in the universe. 👀🤷🏼‍♀️ 5y
Sophoclessweetheart I want to read these soooo much! 5y

Queen_Mery I have read the first book but couldn't get on with the next...😕 I really tried!!! 5y
the.reading.court @avi.reads I think that's the best order to do it in. Lots of people loved the trilogy but I think the duology is waaay better 😊 5y
the.reading.court @Madamereadsalot The trilogy wasn't as good as I was hoping but SoC makes up for it. The characters are a lot better and I prefer the setting as well 😊 5y
the.reading.court @SeelieWarrior I do recommend them as I love the idea behind it but I think there could have been a lot more. 5y
the.reading.court @Queen_Mery I know how you feel. I felt like I had to almost force myself to finish them which was a shame because I do like the idea behind it. 5y
Sophoclessweetheart I've been meaning to try them for a while but I'm desperate now so I can read the SoC duology 5y
the.reading.court @SeelieWarrior The duology is absolutely amazing! 5y
MyBookishSecret I've only read "Shadow and Bone", but because I read "Six of Crows" first too, it was a let down. The writing was not as flawless as in "Six of Crows" - at least we can see how much Leigh Bardugo improved her writing. ? 5y
the.reading.court @MyBookishSecret I think if I had read the trilogy first I would have enjoyed it more. If Bardugo keeps improving like that, just imagine how amazing her next books will be! 5y
biblionatic Same here! I read SoC before these and it kind of ruined me for the trilogy! 5y
the.reading.court @biblionatic Which is a shame really. I might give the trilogy another try next year and see if I like it better then 😅 5y
bwaworga Hahah same 😆 i had high expectation on Grisha trilogy after i read six of crows but turned out to be such a let down, i dislike mal even alina even thr darkling 😅 Nikolai is the only character that i like 5y
the.reading.court @bwaworga Everyone loves the Darkling but I didn't get it 😅 5y

the.reading.court @Bookandbrunette You should definitely pick it up! It is a bit of a commitment but so worth it 😍 5y
the.reading.court @eattrainread I've seen that Jamie's price has gone waaaay up because he's been "vaulted" ? 5y
eattrainread For real?! Whew... I just checked, they have gotten really pricey 😱I hope that once the new season starts they'll make new ones then, cause the prices on amazon I cannot afford 😣 5y
the.reading.court @eattrainread I was lucky I got him in December for only 15€ 🙈 5y

Heartless | Marissa Meyer

I absolutely loved Heartless by Marissa Meyer. It's the first of her books that I've read and I will definitely be reading more 😄

Even though I knew how it would end, I couldn't give up hope that everything would turn out differently for Catherine ❤

Hi Litsy!

My name is Lena, I am 29 and live in Germany ? Here I am doing what I love the most... reading! The book in this picture is A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas ?
