Title: A Thousand Perfect Notes by C. G. Drews
Release: 7th June 2018
Synopsis: Beck hates his life. He hates his violent mother. He hates his home. Most of all, he hates the piano that his mother forces him to play hour after hour, day after day. He will never play as she did before illness ended her career and left her bitter and broken. But Beck is too scared to stand up to his mother, and tell her his true passion, which is composing his own music – because the least suggestion of rebellion on his part ends in violence. When Beck meets August, a girl full of life, energy and laughter, love begins to awaken within him and he glimpses a way to escape his painful existence. But dare he reach for it?
One of my most anticipated debut novels of the year is here, and what a perfect emotional rollercoaster it is.

This is my first month that I have been COMPLETELY FREE of deadlines, so I am ready to kick my freedom off with a good ol’ readathon! As you know, I’ve been wanting to take part in more readathon’s this year – (so far I’ve taken part in Wonder Week, Munches in March, #Thriller-A-Thon and #TimeHop-A-Thon!) and this is one that I am SO excited for!
I absolutely ADORE Marvel and I love reading (obviously) so this is perfect together! Jamieson from Jamishelves created this read-a-thon, and I think it’s genius! The idea is to read a book for each Marvel film released in each ‘Phase’, and you can’t move on to the next phase until completing the previous one – just like the films did! Here is the board below:
Now to get on to discuss my TBR! I’m sorry that this will be such a long post, but I have planned a book for each film just in case!

I’m back with another TBR post – I know I’m just as surprised as you! I really enjoyed my last TBR post where I got Ben to pick the TBR for the month – more on that here: Fiance Chooses my TBR! – so thought I would do it again but with my parents instead!
I really love getting others included in my reading and blogging, it’s just fun and makes me happy to combine two of my favourite things with some of my favourite people!
So I asked both my parents to choose some books for me and used the same categories that I thought of before for my last post, as they seemed to work well! As a reminder these are the categories I gave them to choose books in:
- A classic book
- An ARC chosen because of it’s title
- An ARC chosen because of it’s cover
- A book chosen off the top of his head he knew was on my TBR
- A Stephen King book
- A book from my downstairs bookshelf
- A book from the bookshelf outside my room
- A book from the bookshelf inside my room
I have been a bit ambitious and asked them to choose a book each – meaning I have 16 books on my TBR for this month – but I am now not studying at uni anymore so I have more time to read! I’m also doing a read-a-thon this month so that should help me get through them (more on that later!).
Here is my TBR for June as chosen by my parents!

So last month I got my fiance, Ben to choose my TBR for the month! I thought I’d do a quick summary post of how I got on with the books he chose – I think I did pretty well! As a reminder here are the books he chose: Fiance Chooses my TBR!
A classic book:
To Kill A Mockingbird
I actually got this read and I’m SO glad I did! It was so interesting and I couldn’t believe it had taken me so long to get to it. I can’t wait to write my review of it, I can see why it is Ben’s favourite book.

I AM FREE OF DEADLINES FOREVER! This month I handed in my final deadline for university and I am officially FREE! Well that is until I can get a full time job, but for now I’m enjoying my freedom and doing some reading! I read 13 books this month, and quite a lot of ARC’s which I am so happy with!
Let’s check out what I read!
Title: The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X. R. Pan
Review: I didn’t really know much about this book when I got accepted for it on NetGalley but wow am I glad I read it. It was so poetically written and I just adored how deep the meaning behind it was, and it really made me think and brought me to tears quite a lot too. My review
will be up soon!

Ending: a book ending that made you go NOPE either in denial, rage, or simply because the ending was crappy.
I AM STILL IN DENIAL THAT THIS HAPPENED.
