June was a five star reading month for me. I read nine books this month & five of them were five stars. 

๐ŸŽงAll the Sinners Bleed- a Black sherif must bring down a serial killer. Riveting story. Great characters. Excellent audio narration. 

๐Ÿ“–Yellowface - I flew through this one. It drew me right in. An author steals a novel her dead friend wrote. Jealousy, racism, & a peek behind the curtain at publishing. Engrossing. 

๐Ÿ“–Prom Mom - tragedy, secrets, lies. Author Laura Lippman gives us a masterclass in slow burning character study with this one. Thank you @netgalley & @williammorrowbooks for the digital review copy. 

๐ŸŽงLady Tan’s Circle of Women- set in 15th century China, this examines the roles expectations of women in this multigenerational story. Beautifully written and an excellent narration. Thank you for the gifted copy. 

๐ŸŽงStar Splitter-intriguing sci fi centered around a teen meeting up with her scientist parents after years apart. In space, things can go wrong very quickly. Really unique space travel concept. 

๐ŸŽงLong Way Back- a teenage influencer goes missing on the eve of her high school graduation. Her mother desperately searches for answers. Lots of twists and turns. Thank you for the gifted copy. 

๐Ÿ“–The Making of Another Motion Picture Masterpiece- enjoyed this behind the scenes look at movie making. 

๐Ÿ“–Barbed Wire Heart- a young woman is poised to take over her father’s criminal enterprise. But she has plans of her own. Love when tough guys are outsmarted & outplayed by a badass girl. 

๐ŸŽงUntamed - my book club’s read for the month. Author Glennon Doyle offers a mix of autobiography & self help. Lots of girl power. 

QOTD: how was your reading month?
