Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely June — whether it was due to the start of summer, Pride month, or just some good reading! I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t read a whole lot in June: most of my reviews were from books I’ve read in past months. But that’s okay — life happens.
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
Y’all. This book. I was not ready for it at all. While I’m usually not one for books about fae or when the love interest, ya know, kidnaps the protagonist, this book made me love both of them. Okay, maybe not the kidnapping part, that’s still sketchy as fuck, but I adored the rest of the book. Here’s my review!
Graceling by Kristina Cashore
I wanted to like this so much… I read it when I was younger and remember loving it. However, upon the re-read, I just couldn’t stand it. The characters kinda bored me, the disability rep is kinda ableist, and the writing drove me up the wall. Here’s my review, if you want to check it out!
Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
2/5 stars (DNF @ 92 pages)
So many people have said they liked this book, but I could not get into it. While the plot seemed interesting enough to continue, I really didn’t like the writing style whatsoever. I didn’t write an official review because I only made it through 92 pages, but here’s my Goodreads review if you’re interested.
…Apparently, I only read three books in June, but I figured I would try something new with my wrap-ups, where I give y’all easy access to the other posts I did this month, in case you missed something!

And there you go! My month in blogging and reading. Did you have a reading slump this last month, too? Or were you able to read a lot? Let me know!
