June 2020 reading wrap-up

With the arrival of July, it’s time to take a moment to look back on what I read in June. June was a fairly busy month but I still managed to find time to read most days. I will admit, that there were a number of days I didn’t even look at my books because it was busy with other tasks from the moment I woke up until I went to sleep. While this did mean I didn’t get a ton of books read, I am happy with how many books I did get to. This helps me get through my massive TBR and is helping to get it that much closer to being completely read. This June 2020 reading wrap-up goes over the books I read and my thoughts on them. Hopefully, it will inspire you to read some good books.

June 2020 reading wrap-up

Yona of the Dawn Vol. 24 & 25 by Mizuho Kusanagi

These two volumes were fantastic. So much has happened and I can see that the story is still building up to something big. The ending of volume 25 was huge and it makes me even more excited for the rest of the series. Highly recommend this series.

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan by Drew Karpyshyn

The first book in The Old Republic series explores the life of Revan. Having played Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, I was fairly familiar with some of Revan’s story, but this book went beyond that. It was nice to revisit this time in the Star Wars storyline and see a bit more of Revan, especially those events that happened before the MMO and what shaped him into the character that is seen in the video game.

Komi Can’t Communicate Vol. 7 by Tomohito Oda

I loved this book. I think it’s safe to say that this will be my opinion of this entire series. Not only does this series showcase an extreme introvert as the main character, which as an introvert is great to see, but it has so many funny moments throughout. The snowball fight was hilarious. Another manga series I highly recommend.

The Girl From The Other Side Vol. 8 by Nagabi

The story has taken quite an interesting turn since it started. This volume really surprised me. The events of this particular volume will have a huge impact on the rest of the series and I am truly looking forward to seeing where it will lead.

The Ancient Magus’ Bride Vol. 12 by Kore Yamazaki

Another solid addition to the series. It took me a minute to remember what had happened previously as it had been a while since I had read the previous volume. However, the story quickly came together after that. Sometimes I do find that the sheer number of characters in this series distracts from the story itself, but without those characters, the story would feel flat.

Sword Art Online Progressive 1 by Reki Kawahara

I love Sword Art Online, so when I saw this new version of the story I knew I had to check it out. This is the original story rewritten as the author had intended it to be. There are far more details about Aincrad, the floors, the bosses, and even has a ton of new characters. I loved this book and I can’t wait to read the rest of this new series. If you love SAO then you are bound to love this series.

The Weekend Homesteader by Anna Hess

This is a book that I read to help increase my gardening knowledge. Plus I hope to one day have a homestead, so learning about animals and other aspects of homesteading is good to do ahead of time. I think this book was a great beginner’s resource of getting the basic knowledge of each category. The information was broken down into individual months, though not all of this would work for everyone depending on where you live. Overall, I found this book very well written and has a lot of great information within it. If you are thinking about homesteading or even just creating a huge backyard garden, this book would be a great one to have.
