Booking Ahead: June 2021

Booking Ahead is an opportunity to glance through my never-ending TBR list/pile and select a few potential reads for the coming month. If I’m not reading books I love talking about books I’d like to read, so this post is a perfect excuse to do just that.

It’s that time again, a glance at my TBR list to select a few potential reads for the month of June. I’ve been reading very slowly of late so I won’t choose too many titles, especially since I must mention…

Wizard and Glass by Stephen King. This is the fourth book in the Dark Tower series, and I do want to continue my reread this month so I imagine this will take up a fair amount of my reading time. It’s been a long time since I read these books but from memory I think this was one that I really enjoyed, where we learn more of Roland’s past and about his friends and some of their adventures. Can’t wait to get back to it.

A few other titles I’d like to read this month may include…

The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton – I’ve wanted to read this for a while now.  I enjoyed The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle so much I can’t wait to see what’s in store of this tale of murder, mystery and possible supernatural happenings on board a ship bound for Amsterdam.

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – My current and ongoing read which I should definitely finish this month. It’s so good, and I can’t wait to see how it’s going to end, although I don’t really want to get to the end.

If I manage to read any/all of these choices I might return to the Joe Pickett series by C. J. Box. I read the first book recently and find myself wanting to discover what happens to Joe and his family next.


What are you hoping to read this month? Have you read of my picks, and if so what did you think?
See you again next month for another Booking Ahead.

    I’m still trying to get to The Devil and the Dark Water! I keep rolling it over on Overdrive because it keeps coming at a bad time when I either have ARCs due or I’m reading too many books already. lol. It would be so much easier if I could listen to the audiobook but I tried it and hated the narrator!

    I really had to find the right audiobooks to start getting into them. So I started with celebrity memoirs because it didn’t matter if I missed something, it wasn’t a critical plot point! lol.
