Which books are worth the read and which should you skip? Find out what books I’ve been reading lately and whether I recommend them.
Have you ever looked at a bestselling book and wandered if it’s worth the read? We’ve all picked up that hot new release only to discover it can’t truly deliver what the book jacket promises.Every year, I compile my Read This Not That list of bestsellers worth the hype. But my list only contains 7 books worth reading and 7 that are not. Considering how many books I read a year, so many excellent books, and some not so great reads, don’t make the list. I asked myself: Why not give monthly book recommendations?
Welcome to my monthly reading roundup, Worth the Read. Each month, I write up short reviews of all the books I read that month. Find out which books I recommend and which to skip. I know the month isn’t exactly over, but let’s take a look at my June Reading Roundup by the numbers:
- 2019 Releases: 7 New Releases including 3 ARCs (Advanced Review Copies) and 2 DNF (Did Not Finish)
- Genre: 4 Nonfiction, 7 Fiction
- Authors: 9 Female Authors, 2 Male
- Format: 3 Audiobooks, 3 E-books, 5 Print Copies
- Total Page Count: 3,879
But I didn’t write this post to show off my reading. I wrote it so you can hear my thoughts on the books I read this month. Plus, take a sneak peak at some of what’s coming soon on the book blog.

One of the best perks of being a book blogger is receiving advance review copies (ARCs) of upcoming book releases from publishers.
At the beginning of each month, I cover all the new book releases coming out, and the July 2019 book releases are right around the corner. Here’s a peek at July releases I’ve already read.
My To-Read List
What’s up next for me? Before I let you go, here are a few of the titles I’m hoping to get through this upcoming month.
Be sure to come back in July to see which ones I read.
