The end of June equals the end of my exams. YES! Now I am fearfully awaiting the results. But that’s not what this post is about. The end of June also equals a June Wrap Up post, to show you what I read during the month. I am surprised by the amount of books I read during June! Considering I had exams until the 23rd, I’m honestly proud of myself. Let’s get into it!

Best book of the month: Aside from my rereads –the Harry Potter books, Written in Red and Match Me if You Can- I think I loved The Upside of Stress and Jesse’s Girl the most.
Surprise of the month: The Upside of Stress! I was expecting it to be interesting, but I wasn’t expecting to learn as much as I did. And certainly not from the scientific point of view. But I did! And I heard some awesomely inspiring stories through it as well.
Worst book of the month: Well, this one goes to Family of Lies: Sebastian. I was really looking forward to this one! I wanted to try out a “new version” of fantasy, well, new to me. This is a fantasy book with an M-M romance. And it has really good ratings on Goodreads! Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I will write a full review on this, but in short: the fantasy was lacking, and it is not a romance novel but more erotica. Which I usually don’t have a problem with, I just didn’t understand the “love” here.
Accomplishment of the month: The amount of series I have finished! I finished the Finley Anderson Tanner series, the Paper Magician trilogy, the Jasper Dent trilogy AND started and finished the Georgina Kincaid series. WHUT? I’m so proud of myself.
