Hey, guys! I was away in the beginning of this month, so here’s my slightly late June wrap-up. I didn’t read as much this month as the last, but it doesn’t matter. I’m still relatively on track.
by Pierre Lemaitre
The last part of this book caught me off guard. I loved it, it was quite an unique twist. I recommend this author if you’re into detective novels.
Tokyo Ghoul volume 1
by Sui Ishida
Manga! I haven’t read manga in years, this made me very nostalgic. I decided to read this after I watched the first episode of the anime and then saw that people on MAL (My Anime List) weren’t impressed with the pacing compared to the manga. So I read the first one just to compare and it was good, but despite the anime being a little bit rushed I prefer to watch this type of story instead of reading them. I also prefer the art in the anime.
by Lars Kepler
I listened to this on Storytel and it was pretty good. I’ll definitely read more of these, I’m especially looking forward to Stalker because I’ve heard it’s super creepy.
Ohhh boy. This was a train wreck, the “can’t look away” kind of train wreck. I can’t wait to write the review.

After finishing Irène last month, I moved onto the sequel. Most people seem to find this one a lot better than the first, and I think I agree. I’m only about 120 pages in, but the plot is already a lot more intense.
All the Light We Cannot See
by Anthony Doerr
I hadn’t planned on starting this quite yet, but I stumbled upon the audiobook on Storytel and decided to start listening to it. It went a bit too slowly for me though, and I wasn’t too keen on the narrator, so I bought the physical book. Yay! Now I can get through it a lot faster. I’m enjoying it a lot this far.
The Life List
by Lori Nelson Spielman
This kind of feel-good chick-lit isn’t my cup of tea, but I’m reading it beause it’s the book of the month at the bookstore I work at. I’m enjoying it well enough though, even though I’m not really convinced a mother would do something like this. Because I’m listening to it on audio I can easily get through the entire novel, which I might not have had the patience for if I read it. I don’t even mind that I only have access to the Norwegian audiobook on Storytel, because I’m really enjoying the narrator. I still find myself chuckling at some of the translations, but overall it’s not bad.
And I Darken
by Kiersten White
I started this last month but it wasn’t my top priority so I didn’t finish it then. I’m about halfway through and I’ll be continuing it throughout the month. It’s not really something that you devour in one sitting, and least not for me. It’s interesting, but kind of dense and heavy on the history and politics.
