The past month was pretty great with some offbeat books, books from different nooks and corners and not so famous authors. Now, my June #TBR will be experimentation with “reading series in one go”.
In a very interesting Quora thread, I got to know that many readers face issues while reading series in a single go. I for one, have also read series but taking a break with different books in between. So in this June #TBR, I will have a little experiment where I will read two series of books in a single month.
So here’s a round-up of all the awesome books that I read last month that you simply cannot miss and series that I have selected to read this June;
The Blue Between Sky and Water by Susan Abulhawa
If you have read Susan Abulhawa before, you are familiar with her magic of weaving words that can make you smile and can also make you cry. The Blue Between Sky and Water follows the journey of a family, surviving the decade-long Israel-Palestine war. And it’s not just the family story that moves your heart, you come across such accounts from Gaza which you might have never heard before. This book is a like a must read for everyone!

Half Boyfriend by Judy Balan and Kishore Manohar
Okay so from the start, Half Boyfriend will simply crack you up. And as you keep going, you simply cannot stop laughing. As you can guess from the name, Half Boyfriend is a parody of Chetan Bhagat’s novel, Half Girlfriend. And what a parody! If you are one those who have a love-hate relationship with Chetan Bhagat, this is one book that should definitely be a part of your #TBR.

Maestra by L.S Hilton
For those of you who have read/watched Gone Girl, this book is like “Gone Girl on a Travelogue”. Maestra follows the story of Judith Rashleigh who by day works at an Art House and by night, serves as an escort at the famous Bar. But life takes a turn when she is fired from her day job, trying to find a secret deal within her Art House. Hurt and in rage, she decides to take her life into her hands. And for the rest, you should pick up the book.

Bangladesh series by Tahmima Anam
Set against the backdrop of the Bangladesh War of Independence, Bangla Desh series is something that just attracted me out of book recommendations received from a friend. Three books in the series starting with The Golden Age, The Good Muslim and The Bones of Grace, released recently.
The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Debbie Rodriguez
In little coffee shop established in one of the most dangerous place in the world, five women come together. Sunny, the owner of the coffee shop devising plans to keep her shop and customers safe, Yasmina, young and pregnant, trafficked to Kabul. Isabel, a secret journalist, Candace, who came to Afghanistan for love and Halajan, the oldest of all and with a secret love affair.
So that’s a wrap up for my June #TBR. In case you are reading or have read some amazing series, feel free to share with me and contribute to my little experiment!
Happy Reading 🙂
