Best of… June 2020 @AlixEHarrow @RachelAmphlett @PeterSwanson3 @simone_stjames

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I last wrote one of these posts with my monthly highlights! Whoops? I had originally decided to include this new feature in my monthly wrap ups, but I just felt there were too many facts squeezed into one little post and the whole purpose of putting my favorite reads in the spotlight was lost. So this is me giving those favorites their well deserved extra attention! I was really lucky with my reading choices in June and managed to enjoy the mayority. There were a few that stood out above the rest, but there is one title that simply blew me away and became an easy choice for this month’s favorite… Did you guess already which one? Without further delay, June 2020’s favorite is… *drumroll*

The Ten Thousand Doors Of January by Alix E. Harrow!! I still can’t believe it took me this long to read this absolutely stunning read, and I already can’t wait to revisit the story in the future.

What I said in my review:

“What an absolutely stunning and breathtaking read! I don’t even know where and how to start explaining this beauty of a story, as The Ten Thousand Doors Of January is one of those books where you should go in blind in the first place to fully explore and capture its magic.”

“It’s an absolute masterpiece I cannot recommend enough. I’m truly lost for words here, and will just throw in the following cliche phrase to finish these rambles: ‘just read the damn book‘. Trust me, you will be in for an absolute magical treat!”

There were three other titles that stood out for me in June: all three belonging to my favorite genre and without doubt worth checking out. In the order I’ve read them:

What I said in my review:

Turn To Dust is another worthy sequel and anyone who loves a good detective thriller will be in for an absolute treat.”

“In short, if you enjoy detective thrillers and are looking for an engaging read with more focus on real police work, definitely give Turn To Dust and the rest of the series a go. Trust me, Kay Hunter won’t disappoint!”

What I said in my review:

“The structure of the plot is brilliant, the writing engaging, the character development fascinating, the many bookish elements including the bookshop and Nero the cat simply divine… I had heaps of fun reading Eight Perfect Murders, and thought the ending was a perfect reference to crime classics.”

“If you are looking for an unique and clever crime thriller and don’t mind a spoiler or two of the eight crime classics mentioned in the blurb, you will most likely have an excellent time with this story too.”

What I said in my review:

“This book is most definitely worth the hype, and it turned out to be just as good as I hoped it would be! It’s the perfect mix of paranormal mystery and crime thriller that had me literally racing through the pages.”

The Sun Down Motel turned out to be a fantastic reading experience and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone who loves a little dose of paranormal with their crime thriller. Creepy, ominous and oh so engaging!”

  1. I enjoyed Eight Perfect Murders, as well. I’ve seen so many glowing review of The Sun Down Motel, but the supernatural aspect makes me a little wary. I read one other book by that author and I didn’t realize it had a supernatural element and it kind of ruined the book for me. If I know about it going in, though, it might be ok.
