Monthly Motif: June Update

It’s time for another Monthly Motif reading challenge update! In June, the theme was crack the case, so it was all about mysteries! I don’t read a lot of mysteries, but with the help of some of my favorite bloggers, I came up with a couple choices! ❤ I ended up really enjoying both books, so I think this whole mystery thing might be here to stay.

Books read:

Books not read:

  • People Like Us by Dana Mele, which I might still read in the next couple days if my library hold ever comes in!
  • Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz, which was recommended by spinesthatshine. I didn’t get to it this month, but I put it on my library wishlist!
  • The Dry by Jane Harper, which was recommended by miscellanypages. I also didn’t get to it this month but it’s also on my library wishlist!

July’s theme is vacation reads, which works out pretty nicely since I’m headed back home to Wisconsin for a few days, so I guess I’ll be sharing the books that I read on the plane! I’m also headed to Virginia for a bit at the end of July, so I might as well share the books I read there, too. (It’s a long drive, so maybe an audiobook will do the trick.)

Are you participating in the Monthly Motif reading challenge? If so, what did you read for this month’s prompt? Do you have any favorite mysteries that I should check out? Or, looking forward, do you have any recommendations for what I should read in July?

      I love the Monthly Motif challenge! I think it’s my favorite reading challenge that I’ve done so far because it pushes me out of my reading comfort zone, but I’m not forced to read books that I know I’m going to hate just to check a box.

      Truly Devious and Faithful Place are REALLY different books, but I enjoyed both of them! My review of Faithful Place will be up later today and my review of Truly Devious will be up on Wednesday.

    Both Magpie Murders and The Dry are upcoming book club reads for me, I’ve had both of them sitting in my audible library forever! Enjoy when you get to them! 🥂

    When I was serving tables over Christmas break last year, I got into this full fledged conversation about reading when I saw someone reading the Magpie Murders at a table haha. It’s been on my TBR ever since
