My internet wasn’t working over the weekend, so I couldn’t post this earlier and that annoyed me a lot
(since I only had 1 post last week instead of 2). It wasn’t something I could help, but it still bothered me. Moving on from that!
June was such a busy month for me! It was the last month of university before the summer break, so that means I had a ton of exams and other things to do. I’m just so happy that that is over now! I’m so exhausted, but also happy as I have passed most of my exams
(for some others I haven’t gotten the results yet).
Sadly it’s not over for me yet. As I do have two exams in July
(this week that is) and I need to turn in two papers. But at least I don’t have any classes and can concentrate on studying and writing. Hopefully these things will go well as well! And hopefully the weather isn’t going to be too bad, I really don’t like the heat.
I don’t have much to say about June, mostly because I spent the whole month studying and not doing much else. It was a very busy month, but a boring one as well.
I managed to read 2 books in June and I’m very pleased about that. Honestly I have no idea how I even managed to squeeze them in, when I had so many other things to do.
(Okay, one I had to read for class, so I had to read it.) I’m also 4 books AHEAD of my Goodreads reading challenge, which makes me very happy!
Random other things that I read:
- Poetry and short stories. – They were also for the exam, but from different authors and collections. So I really can’t count them and I don’t feel like talking about each individually.
(That would require a lot of work, as there were many.)
- Other books that I have started. – But I haven’t finished them yet, so we will talk about them in the future
(once I actually read them).
- Some cute fanfiction. – I just needed something cute and lighthearted in my life. Especially when I wasn’t feeling the best during the month.
(I mostly read anime fanfiction, if you were wondering.)
Now, lets get into the actual books that I read in June!
Pet Sematary by Stephen King
4.5 out of 5 stars
Wow. This book was sooo good! I didn’t actually read the synopsis for this book before reading it. Simply because I already know that I enjoy Stephen King’s books
(he is one of my favourite authors). So this book turned out to be a lot different than I thought it would be. And I don’t mean that in a bad way.
This book was shocking in many aspects. The story took turns I didn’t expect it would. This book wasn’t gory, like many of King’s books can be, rather it was creepy and unsettling. The atmosphere within this book was fantastic. I highly recommend this book for everyone who enjoys reading horror!
(And especially Stephen King.)
Macbeth by William Shakespeare
3 out of 5 stars
So this is the book, or rather play, that I had to read for class. It’s been a really long time since I have read one of Shakespeare’s plays and Macbeth was one I wanted to read for ages.
(So I didn’t mind that we had to read it for class.)
It was an interesting play, with fascinating characters. I can see why so many people consider this to be their favourite Shakespeare plays. Sadly it just wasn’t mine. I just had some problems with it and things happened that bothered me.
(I don’t want to go into details, I have talked about it in class and on an exam already.) My favourite is still Hamlet, if you were wondering about that. I’m still glad that I read this play and the discussions in class were great!
This month I haven’t posted as much as I wanted to. Simply because I had no time, as I was very busy with university and other life stuff
(which I have already mentioned in the beginning). I’m just happy that I managed to post at least something, plus it does help that I’m very proud of all the posts I made in June!
