june 2021 wrap-up!

Hi friends! My June wrap-up is so late but then again, when am I ever on-time with this?

books

We Hunt The Flame by Hafsah Faizal | This was a solid fantasy debut, with great banter and a lovely slowburn fantasy. My biggest issue is how slow it was. That made the book feel relatively jarring. But the ending especially hit SO hard, I gave this a 4/5 stars!

Yona of the Dawn Vol. 12 by Mizuho Kusanagi | Yes, another volume! This one made me feel all the emotions. An easy 5/5 stars!

We Free The Stars by Hafsah Faizal | I went running straight to the sequel after finishing We Hunt The Flame. While I enjoyed it, I do think it suffered from the same flaws as its predecessor. That being said…Hafsah Faizal wrote that last 30 pages so perfectly my soul is not yet recovered. 4/5 stars!

music

My June playlist truly does reflect the fact that both Doja Cat and Phil Wickham released albums the last week of June. Oops.

blogger love

I totally didn’t do as much blog-hopping as I wanted to do, and I also didn’t keep track of all my favorite posts as much as I wanted. I adored so many posts that aren’t featured here, but this is a small snippet of what I loved!

One of my favorite reviews I’ve read this month is this review of gearbreakers by the lovely ahaana @ windows to worlds!

Aria @ Book Nook Bits shares nine incredible books by Asian authors!

Marie discusses her 16 most anticipated books for the rest of 2021.

Amanda @ Bookish Brews recommends some diverse climate fiction books!

So that’s it! I might write a film review for A Quiet Place 2, and I did watch several great movies but I uh didn’t keep track of my thoughts. I know, I’m chaotic in the worst way possible. I do hope you enjoyed this post though!

  1. We hunt the flame 😍 (I really need to get to its sequel asap, the ending of the first book shocked me so much so your ‘last thirty pages’ comment has made me excited lol)
    Hope you have a great July!
