What We’re Reading This Month | June 2020

#Post contains affiliate links

♥ Welcome back to our monthly reading list post ♥

I’ve been doing some retro reading this month and rediscovering some of my teenage favourites which has been interesting!

As I said last month, ever since I’ve had a sort out and actually put my books in a bookcase, I haven’t been able to stop reading them!

Cupar loves looking through my book collection at the moment too, and for some reason, he always goes to the Point Horror books first. I think its because the covers are bright and eye-catching and they all seem to have that sparkly 90s metallic writing on them.

I can’t wait to read them all to him when he’s a bit older, but for now, he’s happy just to have a flick through them and look at all the words.

As well as the Point Horror books, I’ve also been having a look through my Anastasia books, which has really taken me back!! Did anyone else read these or was it just me? I remember spending hours reading through them and wanting to be just like her!

It’s amazing how books can take you right back to a different time and a different place isn’t it?

♥ Here are the books that we’ve been reading and loving this month ♥

Beach House – R. L. Stine

Beach House is one of my favourite Point Horror books. My brother got it for me for my birthday way back in the 90s, and we both fell in love with it straight away.

It’s typical Point Horror with a serial killer stalking teenagers during a long hot summer. Very predictable, but exciting none the less!

My lovely brother actually read it before he gave it to me because he couldn’t wait to get stuck in! The cover on my copy is creased because he was reading it in the living room a couple of days before my birthday, and had to hide it under a cushion when I walked in!

Anastasia, Ask Your Analyst – Lois Lowry

I have had so much fun reading through this book again. It’s young adult fiction, and the story involves a 13 year old girl, some gerbils, and Freud! Admittedly it did seem a lot better when I was younger, but I love it for the memories.

Quiet – Fearne Cotton

I am in love with this book! Aeron got it for me for my birthday, and I’ve been dipping in and out of it ever since.

It’s basically all about looking at yourself in a different way, and believing that you’re good enough.

The book is laid out really well and has activites to do and interviews which break up the reading a bit. It’s a book that you don’t have to read all in one go – you can read different parts of it whenever you feel like it which I really like.

I already have the rest of Fearne’s books on my wishlist, so I’m going to have to treat myself to them soon!

The Detective Dog – Julia Donaldson

The Detective Dog has been a favourite of Cupar’s for a while now, and it’s still the one he picks up when he wants to sit down and have some quiet reading time with me or Aeron.

I do love this book. It’s easy to read, it isn’t too long, it isn’t too short, and it’s perfect as a bedtime story.

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes – Mem Fox and Helen Oxenbury

My Mum got this book for Cupar for his first Christmas, and he loves it. We usually keep it upstairs so that we can read it in bed, and it’s always one that he picks up.

It’s such a sweet story, and it actually made me and my Mum cry the first time we read it!!

A bookshelf with books

Aeron isn’t reading anything this month, so I can’t update on him. He’s having a break between the books in the Discworld series before he starts on the next one.

Hopefully he’ll start another one soon, because I love hearing about what he’s reading.

What do you think of our random mix of books this month? Are there any that you’ve read before?
