This was a pretty slow month in the reading department for me! i used to love reading actual books, as opposed to an eReader, but now it takes me so much longer to read an actual book! I also had a lot going on in June and was focusing more on try ons, which took up a lot of time!! so without further adieu.. here is my June 2022 book review!

- The perfect Nanny by Leila Slimani :: 5/10⭐️. I’m going to be totally honest, I don’t know what I just read… Myriam and Paul have 2 children, children murdered by their Nanny Louise. The book opens with this murder scene, then dives into the before. How Louise came into their lives and deeply embedded herself. Maybe I went into this book with the wrong mindset. I anticipated a quick thriller, what I got was a character study. I loved the writing style of the book, but was left very unsatisfied in the end. I expected more.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas :: 9.5/10⭐️. I don’t usually gravitate towards fantasy books, but this one came very highly recommended and with good reason! When Feyre kills a wolf in the forest, she is visited by a beast demanding she be held accountable. Feyre is dragged off to Prythian, world of the faeries and other beasts and creatures where she will live under the roof of one of the most lethal faeries, Tamlin. She soon develops feelings for him. But when things start to go wrong in Prythian, Feyre tries to find a way to make it all right. The last 150+ pages had me glued to the pages! So riveting! It sounds very fantastical, but to be honest, it didn’t feel that way when I was reading it. It was just a really good book! This is book one in a 5 part series, the books are quite long (Harry Potter vibes here!), good for summer travel reading!
- An Honest Lie by Tarryn Fisher :: 9.5/10⭐️. Talk about a thriller! Couldn’t put this one down! Rainy picked up her life and moved across county to live with her boyfriend. She joins a group of women who hang out together, and they invite her on their girls trip to Vegas. What they, or her boyfriend don’t know is that Rainy has a very traumatic past that she’s trying to keep secret. A past that comes back to haunt her in a very big way. I was guessing the whole way through this book! It has stillhouse lake vibes, and I really enjoyed it!! Be it gets a little graphic at times, so just be warned.
- Divergent by Veronica Roth :: 9.5/10⭐️ this book has been on my radar for like a decade, I’m finally getting around to reading it, and it definitely did not disappoint!! Set in future Chicago, in a dystopian world where society has been divided into five factions, each known for a different speciality and role. When Beatrice Prior turns 16, she and the other 16 year olds must take a test which determines which faction they belong to, then make a decision as to which faction they will chose. Beatrice makes her decision and must keep a very important secret, while dealing with initiation and everything they goes with that. Although this book was over 500 pages it was a quick read. I really got into this book and loved the story line! Can’t wait to read the next two books!
