My June Reads (2020)

 
Happy June! Well this is a little hilarious, the last time I sat down to write this very blog post was June 2020 and here I am in 2021 wishing you a happy June. I started writing monthly Edinburgh blogs for Hidden Scotland so I think that combined with a year of what felt like Groundhog Day (and I mean that in the best way possible as there were elements of lockdown I really enjoyed i.e., reading a lot more, daily nature walks, and afternoon tea in the garden with my mum), I ended up neglecting my own blog. Anyway, for whatever reason I didn't finish this blog, I wanted to go ahead and post this as it was 80% done. So, keep scrolling to see what I read last June and do let me know what you've read this month in the comments!

 My June Reads (2020)

 

1. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emma Orczy

The Scarlet Pimpernel has been on my to-read list for a while and when I spotted it on the Edinburgh Library app, I decided to give it a shot! It turned out to be such a fun read. I've always enjoyed movies or TV shows with an adventurous theme like Zorro or Robin Hood, so this was right up my street. I went into the story knowing hardly anything about it so I really enjoyed the mystery surrounding the identity of the Scarlet Pimpernel,

Verdict: 4.5/5 stars

2. The Dead Shall Be Raised by George Bellairs

After reading and enjoying 'The Body in the Dumb River', I decided to give another Bellairs book ago. This time Inspector Littlejohn is heading off to meet his wife in Christmas with his wife
