JUNE WRAP UP | My Graphicsathon Wrap Up!

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! June was a weird month from start to finish. I started the month on a really strong reading high, literally fiinishing my first book by 9am on June 1st and then I was going really well reading on the bus to uni every day. But, then exam week hit me full-force and my reading came to an immediate halt basically until Graphicsathon started. However, I still think I read some great books this month and I absolutely read some new favourites during Graphicsathon which I’m proud of!

Also, even if I hadn’t read a single thing this month, I still co-hosted a readathon which makes me so proud!

So, I’m going into July with a really positive outlook and a lot of motivation, here’s hoping my wrap up is just as positive!

  • Haikyu!! Vol 1 [22/06] πŸ“š β†’ 3 ⭐ ↣ Do I care about sport in any capaity? No. But, this was still fun!
  • The Way of The Househusband Vol 3 [23/06] πŸ“šβ†’ 3 ⭐ ↣ Average – not bad but not amazing.
  • The Way of The Househusband Vol 4 [23/06] πŸ“š β†’ 3 ⭐ ↣ How is a series about an ex mob boss boring? I would really like some plot pls!

  • The Quintessential Quintuplets Vol 1 [26/06] πŸ“š β†’ 3 ⭐ ↣ There’s nothing inherently wrong with this EXCEPT for the constant sexualisation and nakedness of the female minors shown in the manga. It’s not necessary and if it skeeves me out to read it, it should more than skeeve out the author/illustrator.
  • Moonstruck Vol 3 [26/06] πŸ“šπŸŒˆ β†’ 3.5 ⭐ ↣ Trouble in paradise and I’m loving it! As always, this was fantastic!
