After Hazel from Stay Bookish introduced the #30daysofbookstagram (with day one being "your June TBR"), I decided to snap a photo of the books I really wanted to finish this June. I've already finished The Selection and The End or Something Like This (which, btw, I have a review on!) so I'm making good progress! I don't normally have a monthly TBR because I am terrible at following them, but I thought I'd give it a shot since I have a lot of extra time this summer.
I was supposed to read Unravel Me two months ago when I made my first Friday Reads video, but I ended up neglecting it ... I think it's about time I tackle this one. Love and Other Foreign Words was just a random sighting at the library and It's Not Summer Without You, Paper Towns, Lola and the Boy Next Door, Eleanor & Park, and Scarlet are all books I have been meaning to pick up for a really long time.
As for my June anticipated releases, I only have two:
Dark Days by Kate Ormand, released on June 2nd, is about a world divided into different sectors. Apparently, there is a robot army that enters and attacks each sector with the goal of weeding out those who are weak. This book follows Sia, a girl who doesn't think her and her family will be able to survive the attack but refuses to give up that easily. I believe this is Kate Ormand's first novel, so I am really interested to see what her writing style is like.
The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummins, coming out on June 10th, is about a society where the murder rate is higher than the birth rate. I don't know anything else about it, but that in itself sounds scary ... and I'm wondering how a story could be built around that. (P.S. — the background image on this cover is really creepy.)
