Hello beautiful people! And how are you doing this rainy Thursday? I had to take the cat to the vet this morning…always a good time.
I thought I’d go over my very short TBR for June with you today. I think going forward I’m either not going to do TBR’s or I’m going to keep them super short. I seem to be mood reading lately and I enjoy that a lot.
Beach Read by Emily Henry
A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.
Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.
They’re polar opposites.
In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they’re living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer’s block.
Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.
This was a book club pick for the month. It helps that I also already own this one. Go me!
The Darkness Outside Us by Eliot Schrefer
Two boys, alone in space. Sworn enemies sent on the same rescue mission.
Ambrose wakes up on the Coordinated Endeavor with no memory of a launch. There’s more that doesn’t add up: evidence indicates strangers have been on board, the ship’s operating system is voiced by his mother, and his handsome, brooding shipmate has barricaded himself away. But nothing will stop Ambrose from making his mission succeed—not when he’s rescuing his own sister.
In order to survive the ship’s secrets, Ambrose and Kodiak will need to work together and learn to trust each other . . . especially once they discover what they are truly up against. Love might be the only way to survive.
I picked this one up from the library, and I am determined to read it before it is due to go back!
And that’s it. That’s my TBR. Short, sweet, and easy! What is on your TBR?

I absolutely loved The Darkness Outside Us!
The Darkness Outside Us was one of my favorite books from last year! I hope you love it. Enjoy your mood reading. I’m thinking of doing the same this month other than a few ARCs I need to read.
Oh good. I’m so glad to see people really loved it. And thank you! I’m liking it so far (she says on the second day of the month).
